Our mission is to make payments safer and easier for everyone. We started with a consumer product (privacy.com) that helps people spend more safely using virtual payment cards. Then we launched a simple, modern API to make our payment and card issuing infrastructure available to other startups, fintechs, and brands. Today, that infrastructure is known as Lithic, and it powers billions of dollars in payments for some of the most innovative companies in the world.

Lithic is a remote-first company and has a distributed team with an office in New York. That means that if you want to work remotely, you can! If you want to drop by the office or work fully in-person, you can do that, too! We’ve raised $100M+ from top-tier investors including Index, Bessemer, Stripes, and Tusk Venture Partners, with a recent Series C that will help us scale.

Lithic is looking to hire an strong Financial Planning & Analysis (“FP&A”) Analyst who will be an integral part of Lithic’s Finance team supporting its financial planning, forecasting and decision support activities. As a FP&A Analyst, you will be supporting a rapidly growing business to deliver on its financial objectives.

FP&A’s core function is to provide key decision makers across the company timely, data-driven insight into the actual and expected future financial performance of the business. FP&A is the place where it “all comes together” financially; and Finance provides the Management Team (and the Board, investors, etc.) with a holistic financial picture of the strategies we are pursuing. Ultimately, FP&A is highly consultative to the CFO and broader Management Team and over time helps steer decision-making based on expected financial impact.
