  • Oversee the execution of our annual headcount plan.
  • Drive ad hoc analysis to better understand customer activity (churn, credit card declines, country/currency analysis).
  • Explain complex financial data in a simple way, across our transparent organization.
  • Provide support to our VP of Finance and CFO on various projects.
