About Intercom

The way businesses talk to people online is broken. Intercom is fixing it.

Intercom is the first to bring messaging products for sales, marketing & customer service to one platform, helping businesses avoid the stiff, spammy status quo and have real conversations that build real connections. Designed to feel like the messaging apps you use every day, Intercom lets you talk to consumers almost anywhere: inside your app, on your website, across social media and via email. Today more than 15,000 businesses use Intercom to connect with a billion people worldwide. Intercom has 300 employees between its San Francisco headquarters, Chicago Support office and Dublin R&D office, and has raised $116M in venture funding.

What's the opportunity?

Intercom is looking for an analyst to spearhead all things financial planning and analysis. This individual would lead the budget planning and analysis efforts, work closely with each department head to anticipate and react to unexpected changes, and help Intercom meet its bottom line profitability and cash targets.  As an analyst you’d work closely with the heads of each department, own the reporting and tracking process, and have the opportunity to inform and influence key strategic financial decisions. Additionally, you would assist in other FP&A ad hoc analyses and transitions in support of the finance team.

A financial analyst at Intercom must have a strong understanding of subscription based businesses and SaaS metrics. MRR, Churn, CAC, and LTV are all common terms in our vocabulary, and should be a part of yours. Additionally, you should have some familiarity with how to read a P&L, and an ability to understand and synthesize public company financials.  As an analyst, you'll have the opportunity to work with every team at Intercom.

This is great opportunity to impact the trajectory of a quickly growing company. Only apply if you are hungry to take ownership over your work, and excited by what Intercom is trying to achieve.
