Job Description

Strategic Finance Associate (US Eastern Time Zone)

FitXR is a next-generation technology company working at the intersection of fitness and virtual reality. Our mission is to revolutionize movement for all with immersive environments, real coaches, engaging music, and new workouts released regularly.

We're a fast-growing venture-backed startup breaking new grounds in how people move. With backing from top investors such as Hiro Capital and Boost VC, we've achieved 1M+ downloads and built a passionate community of members. We are a remote first company and our team spans across the UK, US and Spain.

FitXR has been recognized as one of the 50 Most Promising Startups by The Information, and with coverage by the New York Times, Forbes, Wired, Rolling Stone, and others.


We are looking for a Strategic Finance Associate to add to our already incredible team. You will have an unique opportunity to support FitXR’s rapid growth at the intersection of technology and health.

This high-impact, highly visibility and expansive role is critical in our execution and planning of long-term strategy and you will work closely with the Senior Leadership Team.

What you’ll find here

  • A passionate global team - and you'll be partnering across the entire business working with a range of individuals across different functions and seniority levels, all experts of their craft and eager to collaborate with yourself to drive FitXR forward
  • A safe space to trial, measure, learn, and adapt
  • High autonomy and encouragement to collaborate cross-functionally as much as possible
  • A culture built on delivering greatness, iterating, sharing feedback and trying new things
  • Strong direction, with clear objectives and priorities, and forums to challenge and collaborate on these
  • A highly invested senior leadership team who believes our people are what will take our business to the next level - they are your teammates, cheerleaders, coaches, support team - working beside you as we build the #1 immersive fitness experience in the world

Where you’ll spend your time

  • Lead forecasting and planning processes to understand key trends, variance drivers, and risks and opportunities
  • Develop and maintain comprehensive financial models to support long-term strategic planning and scenario analysis
  • Establish business relationships across the organization and serve as a strategic thought partner with cross-functional teams
  • Analyze strategic initiatives and provide data-driven recommendations
  • Prepare reporting deliverables and presentations to communicate the company's performance and strategy to executive management, Board of Directors, and investors
  • Explore new growth opportunities and help drive FitXR’s strategies
  • Review existing processes and structures to assist in the identification of improvement opportunities with a focus on simplification, standardization and optimization

We’d love to see from you

  • 3-4+ years of professional experience, ideally in a mix of professional services (Investment Banking / Management Consulting), and highly analytical roles at a fast-growing company (FP&A / Strategic Finance / BizOps)
  • Deeply knowledgeable about financial statement analysis, including advanced Excel and financial modelling skills
  • Effective communicator with both internal and external stakeholders, including proficiency in PowerPoint / Google Slides
  • Intellectually curious, passion for growth, and appetite for healthy discussions with radical candour
  • Motivated by the opportunity to help the world feel better and more powerful through movement, and shape the future of the next computing platform
  • A nice-to-have would be experience with additional analytical tools and techniques such as dbt, python, and R

Our mission is to make fitness fun and accessible for everyone. To build inclusive products, we need to build an inclusive team. Please know that this list is indicative and that we would still love to hear from you even if you feel you are only a 75% match. Skills can be learnt, diversity cannot. We promote a diverse and inclusive culture at FitXR.

  • Initial screen with the talent team

The FlexScore® is the result of a rigorous 2-step verification of a company’s flexibility

First we assess the flexibility options FitXR provides and then we anonymously survey a statistically significant proportion of their employees to make sure FitXR is as flexible as they say they are. Our assessment is based on the six key elements of flexibility: location, hours, autonomy, benefits, role modelling and work-life balance.

We ask the hard questions so you don’t have to.
