At 2ULaundry, we’re proud to have created over 1 MILLION hours of additional time for our customers to enjoy with their friends and family.
We’re looking for a Head of Finance to trail blaze and eventually manage the entire Finance function of the organization. This person has a relentless drive to accomplish even the most daunting of tasks, while maintaining the utmost integrity. This individual is analytical in nature and has no problem building and navigating through complex financial models, monthly accounting processes and multivariate investment decisions for the company without missing any of the details. Over time, this individual will also manage a team of both in-house and contracted resources which will require the ability to identify and manage A+ players. This individual’s ability to ask the right questions, process the information and be confident in their decision making will be paramount as we scale 2ULaundry to the national stage.

• Continually develop and assess the overarching business strategy based on company goals and financial outcomes.
• Work cross-functionally with all department heads to develop and maintain monthly, quarterly and annual zero-based budgets by department to effectively allocate resources based on the business objectives.

• Leadership. You’re a people person, people respect you and look up to you. As the company scales you’re able to scale with it and surround yourself with the right team to get the job done.
