SATAVIA is a rapidly growing Deep Tech software company, based in Cambridge, UK. With an existing team of ~20 people, we plan to expand significantly over the coming years to support our mission of eliminating 2% of human climate impact.
Combining deep aerospace connections with an agile start-up culture, SATAVIA adapts quickly to new opportunities and partnerships. Rooted in scientific and technological acumen and working with leading global players ranging from Microsoft and AWS to Airbus and Etihad Airways, SATAVIA embodies an entrepreneurial mindset with the ambition to transform the relationship between aviation and the environment. We combine ground-breaking technology development with a fun, collaborative, and hardworking team environment.
We are now looking for a personable, engaging and highly motivated strategic finance leader to join our talented and committed team ahead of our Series A, leading and developing the finance function to ensure high quality financial control, FP&A and reporting on a daily basis.
The Finance Director will play an integral role in the growth of the business, taking accountability of the finance functions and contributing to the overall strategic and operational direction of the business. Furthermore, the Financial Director will be responsible for building and developing a world-class finance team as well as implementing appropriate processes and governance within a fast-growing technology business.
Reporting directly to the CEO, you will work closely with the senior and executive management team. It is expected that the Finance Director will quickly establish themselves as an active contributor who is willing to participate, add value, and successfully solve the challenges of a rapidly growing technology business.
