The Role 

We have an opportunity for a resourceful and diverse finance professional to become a core contributor to the health and growth of our business.
 
In partnership with our outsourced bookkeeping firm, you’ll be responsible for managing a wide-range of finance and accounting needs, including ownership over accurate and useful historical financial reporting, successful month-end closes, seamless AR and AP workflows, and an efficient tax, compliance, and 3rd-party audit program.
 
You will also facilitate effective finance relationships with our customers, ensuring both they and Pana have the information and systems needed to have a productive billing relationship. Additionally, you will oversee the management of our internal travel payments system, which processes over $40M of travel transactions per year.
 
Finally, as one of our first finance hires, your input will be valuable in key strategic decisions, and your work will heavily influence the quality and impact of those conversations. You will manage budgeting and pro forma financial modeling to guide effective decision-making about the future.
 
This is a truly unique opportunity for someone to embark on a career-transforming journey. As such, it is going to require a truly unique individual to do it well; we suggest you read this blog post and ensure you’re a “whole-body” YES to everything in it before applying.
 
In return, we offer full benefits, unlimited vacation time, a competitive salary, stock options, and a chance to change the face of travel.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?
