Looking to take your career to the next level in a fast-growing startup? New York City based e-commerce startup Furnishare is currently seeking a Senior Accountant to help manage and grow its finance operations. The company is VC funded and entering the hypergrowth phase. The successful candidate will report to the Founder/CEO and will be responsible for owning all of the finance and accounting operations. This is currently a work-from-home position, but will switch to a work-from-office role after the pandemic is over.

As the sole finance hire, your work will be highly visible and critical to our success. You will be able to (and are expected to!) make an immediate impact.
