Director of Finance and Administration (NYC)
The Art of Problem Solving Initiative, Inc. (a 501(c)(3) organization) is a young and rapidly-growing organization. Through our flagship program, BEAM, we work to guide underserved students with talent in math so that they can achieve success as scientists, mathematicians, engineers, and programmers. Over the past six years, BEAM has grown from a small summer program serving 17 students to three summer sites reaching 180 students each year and offering year-round advising and support to over 400 alumni. Most recently, BEAM received a grant from the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation to open our program in Los Angeles starting summer 2018.
As Director of Finance and Administration, your role will be to support the next phase of BEAM's growth, building and implementing our financial, accounting, HR, and other operational systems. You will work with senior leadership on strategic planning and systems design as we expand and professionalize our organization, and you will implement the financial and administrative systems we need to succeed. As our first hire specifically for finance and administration, this role involves "doing it all"; it is a hands-on role and your responsibilities will include routine accounting duties such as bookkeeping.
