CFO (Austin, Boulder, Chicago, NYC, San Francisco, Silicon Valley)

Early Growth Financial Services (EGFS) is an outsourced financial services firm that provides early-stage companies with three platforms of financial support: transactional accounting, CFO / strategic finance, and compliance. With our team of outsourced CFOs, Controllers, and Senior Accountants, we provide small to mid-sized companies with the support they need so that they can reduce their cost structure and focus on their core business. The majority of our clients are venture-backed technology companies but we work with companies across a wide variety of sectors and verticals.

If you are an experienced CFO who already has your own clients and wants more—with the business chops to market your services and grow our client base—we want you!. The CFO position will afford you a high degree of flexibility, the ability to focus on CFO-level work (while your Senior Accountant handles all of the transactional accounting), an opportunity to work with exciting companies, and a support network of financial professionals.
