value they give to their fans?**
We do, which is why we're building Patreon, a platform that powers membership services for creators with established followings. Patreon strives to provide creators with insight, education, and tools that make it possible to retain creative control while running their creative business, so creators can focus on creating and energizing their fanbases.
Our user base has doubled in the last year alone, and we have paid over $2 billion directly to creators on our platform. In order to support this level of growth, Patreon is looking for a Manager, Strategic Finance to join our team from San Francisco/New York/ or Remote from select approved cities in the US.

Business partnering: You will be a trusted strategic partner and work directly with the heads of payments operations, infrastructure engineering, native video, fraud losses, content moderation and community happiness. You will also work closely with the broader finance team, such as accounting and tax to analyze historical financials and inform your view on the future of the business.
Strategic decision-making: You will provide strategic decision-making advice to key business partners and develop expertise, such as which payment processors to use, which cloud service providers to partner with, pricing negotiations with payment processors and software vendors, resource allocation in our content moderation and customer service teams given the growth of the company, and more.
Executive communication: You will own monthly communication on actuals vs plan, key headwinds & tailwinds, upcoming projects and their impact on gross margins to the Executive team and respective business teams.
