Virtual CFO

  • Contract: Full-time

Job Description

Tortuga is seeking a Virtual CFO to support its growth from 7 to 8 figures in revenue.

Tortuga is entirely self-funded, not VC-backed. We believe in healthy, sustainable growth, not growth-at-all-costs. More revenue should mean more profits. More profits should mean more cash on hand.

A growing, capital-intensive business will always be cash hungry. Your challenge is to create healthy growth. We are working towards sustainability, not an exit. Profits and savings should grow at the same rate (or better) as revenue. The right kind of growth should make Tortuga more financially secure, not more precarious.

We do not currently have any accounting or finance staff. You will work with our founders, Operations Manager, and accounting firm on the objectives below.

Mission

  • To create a roadmap from 7 to 8 figures in revenue through sustainable, self-funded growth.

Objectives

  • Build a cash flow forecast based on our sales forecasts and P&L budgets. Refine monthly to reflect actual results. Improve budget allocations based on cash flow. Present updates and recommendations to team.
  • Use cash flow and sales forecasts to plan for inventory, duty, and freight payments. Supplement with financing via existing lines of credit as needed.
  • Create a plan to balance revenue growth with free cash flow. Revenue growth should yield more savings and less debt, not the opposite.

Skill Requirements

Do Not Apply If…

  • You ever get tired of thinking or talking about travel. Our team is passionate about the problems we work on every day (making travel easier) and about our fellow travelers (customers).
  • You like working at a big company or need hand holding. We are a small, remote company. There is no HR department. There are no layers of management. If you need something done, you do it.

Requirements

Strengths

  • Systems Thinking: Your job description matches one of our core values: build and improve systems. You should excel at building new systems that can be handed off to others or able to run on autopilot.
  • Coaching: In addition to creating the forecasts and models, you must be able to coach our team on using and building on them. Our teams financial expertise should improve by working with you.
  • Taking Initiative: Every company says that it wants to hire self-starters. Remote companies have no choice. You must take initiative and hold yourself accountable to a high standard of work. No one is looking over your shoulder or tracking every minute of your work. If you cant turn this freedom into results, you wont be successful working with Tortuga.
  • Written Communication: Everyone on a remote team must be a strong writer. We have video calls but communicate far more often in writing (Asana, email, Excel, and Google Docs). You must be able to communicate clearly and concisely in writing.

About the Company

Freed from an office, you'll work where you're most productive and live where you're happiest. Travel will become part of your life, not an escape from it.

Today, location independence can feel impossible. Your boss wants you in the office 50+ hours a week. Governments make relocating harder than it should be. Your friends and family don’t get it.
