About Ephemeral 

We’re on a mission to create a world where every body is a canvas for limitless self-expression. In 2021, after 6 years of research and development, we launched the world’s first and only made-to-fade tattoo that lasts a year. With our technology and our experiential Ephemeral Studios, we are making it possible for anyone to wear a tattoo that changes as they change.

Despite being a 12,000 year old consumer category, tattooing has seen little innovation, while continuing to be held back by stigma and permanence. At Ephemeral, we see tattoos as an empowering, beautiful and creative way to express your identity. We dream of a day when tattoos become the number one form of global self-expression. 

We are looking for teammates that share this passion and are excited by the prospect of building without a playbook, are undaunted by big audacious ideas and are committed to teamwork. 

Why You'll Love Working at Ephemeral

We are creative – We see problems as opportunities for innovation, love when playbooks don’t exist and push the boundaries of what’s possible. 

We are owners - Leadership is expected at every level at Ephemeral, during good and bad times. 

We are caring - Our priority is the physical and mental well being of our customers and teams. We work to earn trust by taking care of them in every interaction. 

About The Team

Ephemeral’s Finance team is responsible for partnering with functional leaders to set long term strategic initiatives, oversee all capital and controllership decisions, analyze financial performance and manage investor relationships. 

About The Role

The VP of Finance is a super dynamic role that will build and oversee a series of complex processes, strategies and decision making frameworks for Ephemeral. We are on the heels of our Series A, growing a large fleet of Studios and are almost entirely vertically integrated. 

You will be Ephemeral’s first Finance hire and will have the opportunity to build out our finance infrastructure: from planning and analysis to controllership to organization design. 

As VP of Finance, you will focus most of your efforts on FPA and business operations. However, given our stage, you will also be initially responsible for setting up foundational accounting and cash management practices, but over time that responsibility will be delegated as you help to build out the finance team.

You will play a major role in company financing strategy, expansion, total organization building and in growth activities, such as pricing and marketing. 

You're Excited About This Opportunity Because You Will...

  • Build and oversee Ephemeral’s financial planning and management process, inclusive of annual budgeting, regular re-forecasting and routine P&L and cash flow analysis. 
  • Partner with  company leadership to establish department and company wide financial goals.
  • Define investment and financing strategies in support of Ephemeral’s 5-year vision in partnership with the CEO. 
  • Establish  controllership foundation and implement good accounting practices with a focus on scalability, in partnership with external accounting and bookkeeping services. 

We're Excited About You Because...

  • You have 7 years of FP&A or investment banking experience with a demonstrable grasp of GAAP accounting principles. 
  • You have the ability to balance the tension between financial rigor and commercial intuition. 
  • You understand how to navigate complex investment decisions. 
  • You have a track record of building and innovating. 
  • You possess executive presence and have a strong ability to lead through influence. 
  • You have a bachelor’s degree in Finance or Accounting. 

Nice to Haves 

  • You have an MBA or Masters in Finance or Accounting 
  • You have experience with ERP/account systems. 
  • You have experience in a vertically integrated environment. 
  • Multi-store retail experience.

Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
