What do we do?

Paddle offers SaaS companies a completely different approach to their payments infrastructure. Instead of assembling and maintaining a complex stack of payments-related apps and services, we’re a Merchant of Record for our customers, taking away 100% of the pain of payments fragmentation. It’s faster, safer, cheaper, and, above all, way better.

In May 2022, we joined forces with ProfitWell. ProfitWell provides BI solutions that improve retention and monetization automatically through unmatched subscription intelligence. As one team and one platform, we offer the "done for you" approach to SaaS payments, billing, and growth.

We’re backed by investors including KKR, FTV Capital, Kindred, Notion, and 83North and serve over 3000 software sellers in 245 territories globally.

The Role:

As the Senior Financial Analyst for OpEx in FPA you will have complete ownership over the businesses operating expenses. You will business partner with senior leaders to ensure sound decision making and a sustainable future for Paddle. Your peers will include an awesome Senior Financial Analyst who is responsible for the commercial elements of the PL, including revenue and S&M, and a Financial Analyst (vacancy) that will support the team with day-to-day activities and data quality. You will report to the Director of FPA who has a track record for developing individuals and a commitment to creating opportunities for you to flourish and enjoy the work you do.

Your key business partners will include the executive team members of Paddle’s support functions. You will integrate with these business areas to understand their strategies and objectives, build and manage their budgets and plans, and ensure that we see the highest ROI possible (financial or non-financial) for every £/$ spent.

What you'll do:

  • Own and lead the planning and reporting processes for your business areas.
  • Ensure sound control over Paddle’s operating expenses by building relationships and helping the business navigate their costs and investments.
  • Providing timely and accurate monthly financial reporting for our executive team, board and investors.
  • Co-own workforce planning, collaborating with the Talent Acquisition team and People partners.
  • Respond to financial queries from business functions.
  • Continuously strive to improve the relevancy and quality of reports and raw data.
  • Ad-hoc reporting, financial analysis and projects as required.
  • Regularly be using a forecasting tool (likely Pigment), accounting software (Xero, Netsuite), Excel/Google Sheets, and project management tools such as Asana.

We'd love to hear from you if you are:

  • Passionate about financial planning, structure, and insights - you love adding value!
  • Able to manage, influence and present to key stakeholders including C-level executives and board members - you are able to do the right thing, whilst maintaining relationships.
  • Structured and coordinated in the way you work, you have excellent attention to detail and accuracy and leave very little room for error.
  • A strong communicator and have flawless presentation skills - you enjoy capturing the attention of the audience, and know how to distil the key message.
  • Keen to navigate a scale-up environment, with complexities and challenges - data quality issues, tooling migrations and building the foundations excites you.
  • Looking to develop the way the team and Paddle operates… and develop yourself too in the process
