Manager (Virtual)
Frontier CFO Services Inc.
Victoria, BC

We’re changing the way fast-growing startups get access to key financial insights by building part-time, virtual finance teams.

WHAT WE DO

Most start-ups work with external accounting firms or bookkeepers to handle their finances in the early stages of growth. As they grow, their needs for financial planning and analysis, cash flow management, and stakeholder reporting, among other responsibilities, expand beyond the capacity and expertise of a traditional accounting firm.

Many of these startups still operate on a lean business model and want to maximize cash flow going to R&D instead of being diverted prematurely to an internal, full-time finance team.

That’s where we come in. We bridge the gap between external accounting firms and internal finance teams. We operate at the intersection of accounting, finance, and tech in building part-time, virtual finance teams.

WHY JOIN US

Our exceptional team is driven by intellectual curiosity and the insatiable desire to find better ways of working and solving problems.

We push ourselves to do the best work of our careers by constantly challenging the status quo. We work closely together to take on some of the toughest challenges that startups face.

We, ourselves, are an early-stage, fast-growing startup. Joining us now will offer an unforgettable opportunity to come in at the ground floor and play a key role in shaping who we become.

Our team of extraordinary individuals allow us to build a culture of autonomy and collaborative growth.

  • Remote Work: You can work from anywhere with an internet connection. There is no physical office space, so we communicate via Slack, emails, video calls, and in-person trips. From the beaches of Cancun to the slopes of Switzerland - the world is yours to discover.
  • Meaningful Growth: We offer engaged mentorship to help you set and achieve your goals. We’ll support you in designing a clear and meaningful path to grow and progress within our team.
