Job Description

About Bedrock

Bedrock is operationalizing the largest Earth-exploration mission in human history. We're doing that by developing robotics & software to explore, map, and classify the entirety of Earth's ocean floor. The oceans are a critical component of climate stabilization. Our hope is to provide critical subsea data and infrastructure to further understand and predict the fundamental forces that support harmonious human existence on this planet.

About You And The Role

The ocean covers over 70% of our planet - we need the sea to survive - but despite its importance we know little about it. Over 80% of the ocean has never been mapped; moreover, it's believed that less than 5% has been mapped at least at a 100m resolution.

The truth is that humans know more about the surfaces of the Moon and Mars than our own ocean floor. We at Bedrock think that needs to change. Quickly.

To tackle this mission, we're using autonomous submarines and our cloud platform to drive understanding of the ocean. To help us scale, we're looking for a Vice President of Finance to join us in our Richmond, CA office.

As the VP of Finance at Bedrock, you will report directly to the CEO and will be responsible for leading and scaling the finance and accounting functions. You will drive communicating financial performance and projections to board members and investors, implementing financial processes and systems, and overseeing FP&A, Accounting and other initiatives, including venture capital fundraising.

If you want to do innovative work with new and compelling challenges, then join us!

  • Develop and execute the company's financial strategy, including creative financial engineering.
  • Own all aspects of Finance operations, including:
  • Regular financial reporting (e.g. preparing monthly, quarterly, and annual financial statements), forecasts, planning, budgeting, financial analysis, cash management, and procurement
  • Timely and accurately provide reporting of financial information to internal parties, government regulators and outside agencies
  • Maintain a detailed financial operating model and provide oversight and guidance to the management team.
  • Lead and develop team of finance and accounting professionals, currently one full-time team member owning accounting management.
  • Own financial storytelling for key stakeholders, including board members, investors, and lenders
  • Own the risk management function for the overall company
  • Ensure the company complies with all applicable financial regulations, including management of external tax providers.

What You’ll Bring–Requirements:

  • Master's degree in Accounting, Finance, or a related field, or equivalent certification (e.g., CPA or CFA)
  • 10+ years of experience in senior finance roles.
  • Strong understanding of financial principles and practices, including accrual accounting.
  • Extensive experience with financial modeling, analysis, and reporting.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills.
  • Strong problem-solving and analytical skills.

What You’ll Bring–Preferences:

  • Experience with hardware or manufacturing business.
  • Experience with corporate or tax compliance.

Explore the last true frontier left on Earth with us.

We're seeking ultra-determined people who aren't afraid to pioneer new solutions and challenge conventional assumptions. Most of all, we're looking for high-quality, good human beings with low egos.
