Company Overview

Ibotta’s mission is simple: we want to make every purchase rewarding. Ibotta provides cash back rewards on everyday purchases across a wide range of contexts, from the grocery store to hailing an Uber or booking a hotel online. American consumers have earned over $460M to date using our free app, which has become one of the top five most frequently used mobile shopping applications in the US.  We take great pride knowing that many of our shoppers regard Ibotta as an integral part of their lives, using their Ibotta earnings to pay their medical bills, afford tuition, cover unplanned expenses, and provide holiday presents for loved ones.

We are guided by our company values, which are Integrity, Boldness, Outhustle, Teamwork, Transparency, and A Good Idea Can From Anywhere (IBOTTA).  We are a high performing team and our leaders consider themselves to be performance coaches with a primary responsibility of accelerating the career success of their teammates.  We enjoy establishing and routinely surpassing wildly ambitious goals.  We know that the more our consumers and advertisers win, the more we win, and we love working with like-minded teammates to do just that.

Role Overview

Reporting to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO), the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) will be a key business partner to the CEO and senior management team in the development and execution of the Company’s strategic and financial plans. The CFO will have primary responsibility for all financial activities and be tasked with building the core financial practices to meet the needs of Ibotta’s expanding operations. Although the CFO’s primary responsibilities will encompass all financial elements of the organization, this individual’s general business acumen, team leadership, and performance management will be equally important in the successful execution of the CFO’s daily responsibilities. 

We are seeking a leader who has the ability to integrate the finance function effectively into the Company’s operations, maintaining the strong financial infrastructure required to support continued rapid growth. This person will be an active member of the Company’s executive management team, contributing to financial operational and strategic decisions, and will be expected to demonstrate strategic leadership. Specifically, the CFO will play a key role in steering the organization through increasing operational complexity, as well as ensuring that the Company has a robust and scalable financial platform.  In addition, the CFO will be responsible for partnering closely with the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors.  The CFO must also build strong relationships with current investors, external auditors, growth equity investors and private equity companies, investment banks, law firms, potential acquirers, and others.

The ideal candidate for the position will have prior CFO experience in a large ($100 MM revenue +), high growth, entrepreneurial company and will have managed all aspects of the finance function. Prior experience in finance and accounting positions in larger organizations is also a plus, as is experience working closely with private investors, including completing an exit, either through M&A or an initial public offering.

  • Ensure relationships between departments are collaborative and constructive, supporting the development and execution of operating plans on a quarterly and annual basis.


  • Strong academic credentials required; an MBA is strongly preferred and a CPA is also a plus
