Director of Finance
STRI Labs was created to incubate blockchain startups with the simple premise and purpose of ensuring security, trust, reliability, and identity in the engagement of smart and social contracts. The team represents seasoned startup executives from operations, technology, and marketing. We have experience in some of the biggest name startups from the past and raising tens of millions in financing.
We’re launching our first offering this summer, the Bitcoin Buyers Club, to address a nascent opportunity in the Bitcoin ecosystem. We expect the ecosystem to grow 10x + in the next couple of years, and we are well positioned to take full advantage of this opportunity.
Specifically, we need someone who believes in a future where Bitcoin is the final settlement layer in commerce, smart and social contracts, and who knows and can articulate the difference between proof of work and proof of stake.
This is a founding role. Compensation is a mixture of equity and operations funding with tremendous upside as the company and market growth.
You must be a capable self-starter as well as a team player hungry to get in an early stage startup. You will not only own the day to day traditional finance role and future projections, but also manage the company's flow of Bitcoin as an asset for customers and asset on our books. Over time, the company will build up an inventory of Bitcoin assets as a result of day-to-day operations. The finance director’s responsibilities are to strategically plan a balance of cash on hand and bitcoin inventory to execute and grow our day to day operations.
Additionally, you are responsible for keeping records, owning our KYC process to stay current and in compliance in reporting transactions to FinCen and other agencies according to current regulations. It will also be your responsibility to maintain updated knowledge of regulations and best practices in regard to Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.
