About the role:
DIG is looking for a dynamic FP&A Analyst to join our growing Finance team, reporting to our Chief Financial Officer. This role will be exposed to many moving parts of our restaurant group and will be a critical, strategic thought partner, working across the organization to drive value. You will leverage data, build models, communicate insights, and execute best practices to streamline and optimize processes for DIG’s continued growth. You will support the CFO and other cross functional teams by creating forecasts, budgets, board and investor materials and other financial analyses that support both short term and long term business goals. This is an amazing opportunity to join a growing, fast-paced company and impact not only business operations but also the greater food system.
- Partner with cross-functional teams to support quarterly and annual budgeting processes, drive strategic decisions and initiative prioritization.

- Complete ad hoc financial modeling and analysis.
- Develop, monitor, and drive deeper understanding of our KPIs across the company.
- Prepare weekly financial results against budget.
- Create what-if-analyses to assess the impact of business opportunities on our long-term goals, providing insightful decision bases for senior management.
- Maintain and quantify risks and opportunities in business performance and conduct scenario and sensitivity analysis.
- Improve financial rigor around decision-making, including business cases for investments and new markets and business lines.
- Partner with functions including accounting, tech, operations, supply chain, real estate, and marketing to support our growth as we expand into new markets and business lines.
- Translate strategy into specific business initiatives and develop tools to measure and evaluate them.
- A strong academic track record (bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, STEM, or Finance preferred).
- 2-4 years of work experience in a highly analytical and strategic role (preferably investment banking or private equity).
- The ability to transform raw data into insights for the business.
- A strong ability to work at a strategic level, but you’re equally as happy getting your hands dirty.
- A strong expertise in Excel and Powerpoint (familiarity with visualization software - e.g. Looker or Tableau - a bonus)
- A love for numbers - you can sift through qualitative and quantitative data and build analyses.
- Clear communication skills in person and online with experience in translating data into strategic recommendations.
- A natural curiosity that leads to quick understanding of new subjects.
- An entrepreneurial spirit - you don’t mind rolling up your sleeves and getting scrappy.
- An interest in the restaurant industry and curiosity about the world, food and people.

At Dig Food Group, we’re building a better food system for everyone by sourcing, cooking and serving delicious food everyday. Nine years in, we’ve grown to more than 30 fast-casual Dig restaurants, opened our first full-service restaurant, 232 Bleecker, partnered with 130 farms including our own Dig Acres, and taught thousands of people how to cook (really cook) in our kitchens.
To do this, we’ve built direct and real relationships with farmers. We don’t just name check them on our menus -- we’re true partners in their businesses. We focus on farmers who are independent, first-timers, women, immigrants, LGBTQ and people of color. These relationships allow us to get the best ingredients all year round and change our menu based on what is growing in the fields.
Each restaurant is run by a chef and all our food is cooked on site. There are no microwaves, can openers or freezers, just an entire culinary team at every location, cooking vegetables all day. This requires training a whole generation of chefs and cooks from the ground up, including many who have never worked in a restaurant before. Knife skills are life skills.
We’re not here to disrupt anything or become a platform. We run our business on good food and great people. From sourcing to serving, our mission is to create a better food system for everyone. That means a world where farmers can make a living growing food, anyone can learn to cook, and we can all eat well, together.
DIG believes in the power of a shared table to bring people together as we are committed to building a culturally inclusive team. Diverse candidates encouraged to apply
