The FBOS team provides strategic, operational and financial decision support at the corporate, departmental and product level.  The team’s mission is to “define and defend the business model while accelerating Gusto’s growth.”

As part of this team, you will drive planning, resource allocation and operations for the Accountants business segment in this high impact, high responsibility role. You’ll be a relied upon thought partner for our Head of Accountants Segment, in determining our strategy, product impact sizing, and resourcing of the channel. You’ll gain experience creating and managing financial plans, conducting market research, and being a thought partner to operators in scaling the current Accountants business segment.

What it is like to Work with Gusto

Here’s what you’ll do day-to-day:

  • Planning & Forecasting.  Support Gusto’s Accountants segment through revenue, cost, and headcount planning & forecasting. Solutions oriented mindset is important as you partner with key members of the organization to maximize performance within the existing financial constraints.
  • Business Analytics.  Conduct research, analysis, and business modeling to help Accountants segment leadership make financially sound and strategically aligned decisions that thoughtfully weight opportunities and risk
  • Performance Management.  Help continuously improve reporting frameworks and define/track the right KPI to drive better product management decisions with data-informed insights.
  • Execution.  A core philosophy of the FBOS team is that we are not here to merely forecast, i.e. try to predict an indeterminate future -- we are here to help make it happen.  We roll up our sleeves as partners and pitch in with operators as needed.

Here’s what we're looking for:

  • Experience.  You have 4+ years of relevant work experience in investment banking, consulting, and/or private equity / growth equity, and with Operational SaaS experience.  You have a degree in a quantitative field (e.g. Finance, Business, Engineering, Mathematics, etc.)
  • Technical skills.  You’re an excel pro with the superpower to develop insightful financial models and quantitative analysis, paired with strong critical thinking and sound business judgment.  You have impactful data visualization skills in Tableau, or other BI tools.  You can deep dive into large data sets with SQL.
  • Precision.  You have sharp attention to detail with a natural feel for numbers and data, and have a high degree of accuracy in a fast-paced, results-oriented environment. You are able to tend to the blades of grass, while not losing sight of the broader landscape.
  • Discipline & Attitude.  You have impressive time management skills and ability to juggle multiple projects/tasks with multiple stakeholders while hitting deadlines on time sensitive projects. You are proactive and have a positive attitude with a can-do, service-oriented mentality.

Our cash compensation amount for this role is targeted at $99,000 - $123,000/year in Denver & most remote locations, and $121,000 - $149,000/year for San Francisco & New York. Final offer amounts are determined by multiple factors including candidate experience and expertise and may vary from the amounts listed above.
