About the company

 

We are Insight Matters!

 

We are looking for a proactive, all-round Senior Executive Assistant / Chief of Staff to join our team on a full time basis.

In a nutshell, the jack-of-all-trades who takes all sorts of tasks off the plates of the owners. 

We provide our clients with financial insights that they use to grow faster, better, and healthier businesses. Based on our input, they make life changing decisions about hiring, investing, and improving their strategic plans.

Our clients use our services to answer critical business questions: like, "Can they invest in hiring a new person? Are they getting the right return on marketing? Where are they leaving money on the table? Which products or services are most profitable?”

We are a full-service financial support service, working mainly with e-commerce and service companies - delivering the full finance function, from accounting to fractional CFO services, and from management reporting and analysis to internal control.

Our team is fully remote and currently spread out over various countries in Europe, Asia, and South America, while our clients are mainly in the US, Europe, and Asia. We are a team of 14 and are growing rapidly.

Our #1 priority is delivering quality to our clients – we are their trusted partner for big decisions, so quality is non-negotiable.

We place a strong emphasis on asking questions, learning from one another, and learning from our mistakes in our open, informal, equal, and trust-based team environment.

You’ll be working mostly with Rob and Maj, our management team, on the one hand, and supporting the team on the other.
