Finance Systems Lead
We're on a mission to make it possible for every person, team, and company to be able to tailor their software to solve any problem and take on any challenge. Computers may be our most powerful tools, but most of us can't build or modify the software we use on them every day. At Notion, we want to change this with focus, design, and craft.
We've been working on this together since 2016, and have customers like Pixar, Mitsubishi, Figma, Plaid, Match Group, and thousands more on this journey with us. Today, we're growing fast and excited for new teammates to join us who are the best at what they do. We're passionate about building a company as diverse and creative as the millions of people Notion reaches worldwide.
Notion is an in person company, and currently requires its employees to come to the office for two Anchor Days (Mondays & Thursdays) and requests that employees spend the majority of their week in the office (including a third day).
We are currently in search of a Finance Systems Lead who will play a pivotal role in enhancing and expanding the systems and tools that support our Finance and Accounting departments. This is a pioneering position within a new team, offering significant opportunities for strategizing and shaping the direction of our finance and business technology to optimize their effectiveness for Notion.
Your main responsibilities will involve charting the course for our finance systems by managing the roadmap, prioritizing crucial initiatives, defining significant tasks, including technical specifications, and collaborating with team members to execute, document, and introduce changes to the team.

Efficiency and Effectiveness: Drawing on your deep knowledge of finance systems, you'll enhance our billing, quote-to-invoice, revenue, and accounting processes. This means not only making them more efficient but also more accurate, reducing errors, and making our operations smoother.
Innovation: Embrace the freedom to innovate and introduce cutting-edge solutions. Your role invites you to challenge the status quo, implementing innovative approaches that set new standards for financial excellence within our organization.
Compliance and Security: Your role will entail ensuring that our finance systems consistently adhere to regulatory and security standards. You will be responsible for implementing and maintaining robust data security protocols to safeguard our financial information.

- 10+ years of financial system implementation and support experience
- Extensive experience in implementing robust billing, quote-to-invoice, revenue, and accounting systems within an operational setting. This includes expertise in Subscription SaaS and usage-based billing.
- Support the Finance teams by building and maintaining systems to support new and existing finance processes, including implementing and maintaining customizations of systems to meet evolving business needs
