The finance team is not a back-office function. Our role is equally balanced between strategy and operations. Like many finance teams, we collaborate deeply with HR, legal, and IT to ensure strong operational excellence so that the trains always run on-time in a rapidly scaling company. Business partnership is core to how we work. Arguably, how we work and partner with others is more important than what we do each day. Our team continues to earn our seat at the table by leveraging our relationships and delivering data driven insight. It is expected finance will continue to own a significant role in scaling Model N as a SaaS company.
