Do you want to join us in building something new at the intersection of food and technology to help advance the restaurant industry and connect everybody with their favorite meals?
Then Kitch might just be the right thing for you!
Kitch is a venture-backed firm that is on a mission to empower restaurants to own their deliveries.
Food delivery is a growing part of our routines. It’s easy, convenient, and there are more and more restaurants available. And the current global pandemic has contributed to further accelerate this trend. However, not everything is perfect. Most restaurants and food businesses wanting to capture the delivery opportunity often have to choose between the steep costs of selling through delivery marketplace apps, and the complexity of setting up and running their own delivery operations.
Kitch is here to fix this. We are a technology company that builds the platform for restaurants of all sizes to own and to make the most of their online deliveries, regardless of the channels they use, while providing the highest standard of experiences to their customers. This means that we want restaurants to take back control of their deliveries: maximizing their delivery sales, gaining back the relationship with their customers, letting go of the complexity of doing delivery over multiple channels, and reducing their costs.
There is much to do, many things to build, and we are literally just getting started. This is a ground-floor opportunity to join a startup in a fast-growth space in a seed stage. We are a Lisbon-based startup and our team is composed of former executives at major tech, food-delivery, and food & beverage companies and brands internationally, with extensive startup and strategy consulting experience. We are looking to grow and develop by attracting extraordinary people with outstanding talent.
You are passionate about building something from scratch.
You are a highly analytical and structured person, who believes that financial discipline should be at the root of major business choices, and who is able and keen to data-driven and financial guidance to the rest of the team so we as a company can make better decisions day in and day out. You see finance not as a hurdle, but as a tool enabling us to achieve our goals.
You are as comfortable with financial lingo as Janet Yellen is with interest rates. You tried before, with excitement, to explain to people at a dinner party the difference between EBIT and EBITDA, and know that in these 3 acronyms - FCF, TLC and SG&A - there’s one that doesn’t belong in financial reporting. You are organized and detail-oriented. You like to test and believe in relentless experimentation to find the optimal way forward. You are fiercely creative and are unafraid of experimenting with the unconventional roads. You are more than willing to admit failure and to move forward. You get things done, although knowing that nothing is ever truly done and can always be improved.
You love food, and you are excited about embracing the challenge of how food is consumed and distributed in the modern age, enabling restaurants and customers to benefit from technology and innovation. Bringing a new concept to an industry that is largely established is something you look forward to doing.
Finally, but not least importantly, you have a great attitude and are a team player.
This is a ground floor opportunity at a seed-stage startup.
We are looking for a Finance Manager to be the first person to join our Finance team. This means you will be bringing much needed discipline to the finance and accounting practices of a seed-stage startup, taking the reins of our current processes as they are, and looking ahead to build the tools and processes needed for our business to scale.
Your first goal is to own financial planning and controlling. As a venture-back seed-stage startup, having a tight grip on our funds, which we regard as oxygen to continue building and scaling, is fundamental. We need you to own financial plans, budgets, reporting and controlling to ensure our financial discipline while accelerating our pace of growth, and we need you to be a gatekeeper for financial and accounting compliance throughout.
Your second goal is to own all company payments and expense management processes. In our business there are multiple flows of cashing and invoicing every single day. Taking ownership and running such processes will be one of your key responsibilities. But we also expect you to help us simplify and streamline these processes, work closely with our Product & Engineering team to automate them as much as possible - driving efficiency and reducing the change of human errors at Kitch, and improving the experience for our customers.
Your third goal is to support decision making with sound, data-driven insights. Measuring and monitoring metrics such as customer lifetime value, customer acquisition cost, average revenue per user, and cost of customer management will be fundamental for us to grow a scalable and sustainable business, and we count on you to own this.
Some of the responsibilities include:
