Finance & Risk Modeller new

We’re on a mission to make it easy, safe and fun to grow money through the power of decentralised technology. We believe that blockchains will be transformative for our society, and we’re dedicated to introducing the magic of DeFi to the world. Every member of our team shares this passion, and each of us is proud to hold a place at the forefront of the crypto movement.

We’re a high-performance team of around 30 people. We have freedom and responsibility, a culture that encourages innovation, offers ownership and embraces knowledge sharing. We have big plans to grow!

Due to the pandemic we’re working entirely remotely. When it’s safe to do so we’re looking forward to folks collaborating in person again — but remote is totally cool too!

Requirements

We’re looking for a Finance & Risk Modeller to help us see into the future. Reporting directly to our Finance Director, the successful candidate will be instrumental in the accuracy and timeliness of our forecasts, and in helping the business understand and quantify the risks associated with the crypto assets, both on our balance sheet and on our product roadmap.

Initial Role Responsibilities will include:
Producing financial forecasts, covering cashflow, income statement and group balance sheet

Treasury forecasting and reporting (including crypto assets held by the company)

Performing financial risk analysis and reporting on crypto assets, DeFi protocols, and other financial features of our products

Producing and maintaining dashboards (working with the Product team, probably using Google Datastudio)

Ad-hoc improvement projects across finance and operations.

Core Attributes that we look for:
Self-starter – you’ll be the first person in the team with a finance/risk modelling background so must be comfortable setting and taking ownership of your own direction

Self-developer – able to teach yourself new things quickly. You’ll need the curiosity to figure things out on your own

Communication – to balance “setting your own direction” with keeping your stakeholders informed

Comfortable with ambiguity – there are a lot of “unknowns” and “unknown unknowns” and that will persist for a while – you’ll need to relish the adventure!

Builder – The role will be starting from scratch. We’re looking for someone who sees that as the best part of the job.

Flexible – The needs of the role may change. You may need to help out in a completely different area of the business to the one you’re used to. We hope that’s an exciting challenge.

Our ideal Candidate will have:
Expert level Excel skills (or in another, more suitable tool if you can suggest one)

Previous experience producing financial, treasury or risk models

Working knowledge of risk metrics like VaR, Sharpe Ratio etc and experience measuring and reporting on them

Experience in data visualisation and report building (ideally in Google Data Studio)

Knowledge of and interest in DeFi or crypto (beyond just buying and selling assets on Coinbase or Kraken)

Proficiency in a high-level programming language (e.g. Python, R)

Benefits

Our team members are rewarded well! UK employees are offered the below, and we will aim for similar elsewhere:

Generous Stock Option Scheme

Private health insurance

A training & development budget that helps you to grow with Monolith

25 days holiday plus local public holidays

Flexible working hours (we care about your output, not when you rock up or clock out)

Top of the range hardware

The option to receive some of your salary in crypto

Cycle Scheme
