Chief Financial Officer

LONDON, UK

Responsible for overseeing and directing our financial goals, objectives, operating plans, financial models, and operating budgets. 

It is about so much more than just the numbers

The role is not just about making the finance function run effectively; it is also about clearing the path for growth, forming new relationships and partnerships, generating measurable value, and establishing and improving key processes. The role is very much integrated into the day-to-day of the business, including investor relations, financing deal-making, governance, reporting, and other key back-office matters.

For OZ, it's all prompt execution now. We want to make sure we’re pushing as hard as possible towards our set direction and that we stay innovative, push the boundaries, and be performance metrics-driven. It is critical for us to find a talent that is All-in and is well aligned with these guiding principles.

Trust-building is a core

Cultural fit is important for us. It is a people role. As a team, we work with a Growth Mindset, driven by our Confidence, Endurance, Discipline, and Bravery. We operate based on a few Core Guiding Principles:

  • We are constantly focusing on innovating and we exist to make great products.
  • We believe in the simple, not the complex.
  • We believe in deep collaboration of our talent, which allows us to innovate in a way that others cannot.
  • We don't settle for anything less than excellence in every area in the company.
  • We have the self- honesty to admit when we're wrong and the courage to change.


We're looking for someone driven and very motivated. Someone hard-working, to help us build up the London office. Hands-on. Doing the various ad-hoc work in partnership with the management team and the local talent at the office
