- Investment Banking
Forward is redesigning the way we deliver healthcare, using all the technologies healthcare has historically neglected. As an early member of our world class finance team, you’ll have a key role in rebuilding our country’s most important and most broken industry from first principles.
We were founded in January 2016 by former executives and engineering leaders from Google and Uber. We are funded by some of the world's best investors and entrepreneurs including Founder's Fund, Khosla Ventures, First Round Capital, Eric Schmidt (Google/Alphabet Chairman), Marc Benioff (Salesforce Founder), Joe Lonsdale (Palantir Founder), Joshua Kushner (Oscar co-Founder) and Garrett Camp (Uber co-Founder).
You can read our story here and some recent press in The New Yorker, Forbes & TechCrunch.
WHAT YOU'LL BE DOING
Work alongside our co-founders as a key member of our finance team
Prep regular and ad-hoc financial reporting, manage G/L entries, own the COA, and oversee payments and receivables while working to streamline and scale all of these functions
Build out key FP&A processes and functions while working with cross-disciplinary teams of physicians, designers, and engineers to enable rapid scaling of the business
WHO YOU ARE:
Impactful - You’re deeply mission-driven, and you think there’s more to life than software that enables puppy ears to be superimposed in photos. (Although we concede those are cute.)
Entrepreneurial - You’re a self-starter who loves to own things end-to-end. You don’t ask for permission - you’re too busy making things happen.
Build Good Teams - Not only managing them, building them. You know how to make those around you better and feed off their energy. You take care of your teammates.
6+ years experience with a background in accounting/finance/investment banking/consulting (or related experience)
Hands-on experience with accounting software packages
Big 4 experience and CPA strongly preferred
Startup experience a plus but not required
WHY JOIN FORWARD?
We don’t want to just move dollars around the healthcare industry - we want to rebuild it and fix it. All of it. You’d be a major part of the story behind one of the most ambitious startup attempts of the past decade and you’d work with a team of people who want to use their talents for good.
