Commercial Finance Manager

New York, NY

Here at BARK, we love dogs and their people. We’re looking to make all dogs happy throughout the entire world (we’re not kidding). Think Disney for dogs -- we make magic for dogs and their people through our products, events, and experiences. 


Our ambition level is high, the opportunity is huge, and our love for dogs is through the roof! We launched in 2011 with BarkBox, a monthly-themed subscription of all-natural treats and clever toys. Since then, we've shipped more than 70 million toys and treats to dogs across the world and use all of that direct customer feedback to inform new initiatives and ways to make magic between dogs and their people. We’ve since expanded into other offerings as well, as we aim to become THE Dog Company for every family with a four-legged, belly-scratch-loving, interspecies family member.


THE TEAM

The Commercial Finance team partners with Bark’s business units to analyze historical financial trends, forecast revenue & KPIs, and implement strategic initiatives to improve business performance. Every day you'll collaborate with stakeholders across the organization to review financial performance and to update rolling forecasts on an ongoing basis. Basically, we ensure the company is always on track to meeting (or beating!) its goals so we can make ALL dogs happy.
