At Improbable, we’re bringing together technology and games to create new opportunities and experiences. In order to achieve this, we need unique perspectives from diverse people, empowered to revolutionise how online games are made, delivered and paid for.
We believe one of the biggest, most impactful changes to the way we live our lives is going to come from the medium of games. Realising new communities, societies and vocations through virtual worlds is what drives our people and gives them purpose.
As a Finance Business Partner, you will be empowered to provide our executives and the wider business with the financial and operational context they need to enable the successful execution of our company strategy. You will be given autonomy to create well presented and timely reports that form the foundation of Improbable’s decision making, thus creating honest and invaluable resources.
This will require your dedication, curiosity and attention to detail in order to delve into the heart of each business unit and apply a commercial and analytical mindset to our key drivers and risks. We expect you to foster lasting relationships with employees and connect with every level of the company, including our executives. This trust will help you in your quest to shape the company by providing the correct financial frameworks to benchmark success and by driving accountability throughout the organisation.
Together, leveraging our team’s unique birds-eye view we will collaborate to form our own considerations and advise on company-wide resource allocation. The end goal of our team is ensuring smart capital deployment through empowering the organisation to make more informed decisions.
