We need someone who has integrity, a clear moral fiber, and excellent social skills in order to be successful in this role and cultivate communication with each layer of Clarifai. While not a critical requirement, we highly value CPAs for this role.
  • You provide and improve reporting which contributes value to the business.
  • You take ownership over day to day accounting and finance requirements, such as A/P, A/R, and collections.
  • You process transactions and close the books effectively and efficiently.
  • You identify and resolve technical accounting issues to improve efficiency across the organization.
  • You build forecasts and our annual operating plan.

In your first month, you will start off by learning the ropes.  You will:

  • Talk to departmental leads and understand our financial needs across the business. Meet with all vendors and take charge of all relationships with those vendors, including financial reporting meetings and outputs.

  • Present regular financial updates to the executive team to be shared with the entire company and the Board of Directors. 

In 12 months, you will lead our first audit and start building out your own team to help handle our financial growth.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?
