    Central Office - Finance
  • Overview

    Room & Board has a unique opportunity for a Finance Planning and Reporting Manager. The individual will report to the CFO and lead a team of four established professionals (3 financial analysts & 1 System Admin) within a $500M privately-held, financially secure home furnishings business that is committed to growing and making investments in both the business and our staff members.


    In this role you will have complete ownership of the financial reporting and planning function. As a working manager, you will spend equal parts on the technical (financial reporting, planning & tools) and people (leading/coaching/growing the team). You will build strong rapport with business partners across our retail showrooms and outlet, delivery and distribution centers and central office and work closely to understand their needs and to establish plans to support their operations (sales, freight, staffing, delivery, etc.).




    The qualities you bring:

    • As a confident leader, you build teams that are career oriented, passionate and engaged in their work. You build trust and empower them to work in a self-directed manner that is more strategic and planful.
    • You bring a focus and positive mindset to managing deadlines while at the same time understanding the overall workload.
    • You understand operations and you’re respected in your approach to helping non-financial staff easily understand the financial impacts to their operations. You’re open minded, a great teacher and a great communicator and story teller.
    • This might go without saying, but you bring an impeccable attention to detail with a desire for accuracy, you’re task orientated (without getting too deep in the weeds) and you’re deadline driven.

    The Experience, Skills and Education you bring:

    • 5+ years of leadership experience involving financial accounting, reporting and planning; preferably within a privately-held entity.
    • Working knowledge of software reporting/planning tools: preferably SAP and/or Host Analytics (or similar Hyperion, Essbase).
    • Prior experience within a similar size company ($500M revenue) is important.
    • Prior experience within the retail industry would be considered a “plus”.

    Where you’ll grow:

    • As a life-long learner, you are fueled by the opportunity to develop capabilities of the team, your business partners and our tools/reporting functions.
    • As a forward thinker, you relish in the opportunity build best practices and create reporting that is unique to how we do business and more easily digested by internal business partners.
    • You will play a lead role in building a strategic plan for our Host software tool that is used in our financial reporting and planning processes.

    What you can expect:

    • You’ll join a 15-person finance team at Room & Board that manages the accounting functions and produces the monthly financial statements and reporting packages and also plays a vital role in protecting the company’s intellectual and physical assets. They identify core measures that are fundamental to understanding the health of our business in the moment, allowing us to be nimble as we adjust our plans and attain successful outcomes.
    • As a private (S Corporation) company that isn’t bound to all of the public company regulatory reviews, audits, bank examinations or SEC reporting, you’ll enjoy more opportunity to focus on strategy and building plans that drive business success.
    • We’re rooted in philosophies, not rules, so you are empowered to make decisions. Our collaborative spirit leaves little room for bureaucracy and cumbersome rules; instead we keep it simple, take accountability, solve problems and ultimately trust others to do the right thing.
    • Our unique, progressive benefits go beyond the basics of health insurance and vacation to support you physically, emotionally and financially. You’ll receive a strong competitive salary, including bonus plan, and a comprehensive benefits package including three weeks of paid vacation, generous 401(k) match, profit sharing, and several perks.
