About the Team

The Strategic Finance team is responsible for some of the largest investment categories at OpenAI, leadership reporting and capital markets activities. The team plays a critical part in maximizing OpenAI’s long term value by partnering across the business to allocate and deploy our resources for the highest impact outcomes.

This role is based in our San Francisco HQ. We use a hybrid work model of 3 days in the office per week and offer relocation assistance to new employees.

In this role, you will:

  • Own critical corporate finance processes, including Board reporting and building and evolving our long-term forecasting models to support decision-making around expansion and operational strategies

  • Stay current on market trends and best-in-class financial performance benchmarks
  • Support capital markets activities, including valuation exercises, preparation of materials, investor engagement, and facilitating diligence
  • Working closely with our Accounting and FP&A teams to build and evolve our financial reporting as well as finance team operations
  • Support key strategic initiatives as needed

You might thrive in this role if you have:

  • 7+ years of progressive investment banking, strategic consulting, corporate finance, or buy side investing experience
  • A strong ability to critically evaluate opportunities and risks in financials
  • An analytical mindset and inclination to seek out the truth instead of relying on generalities and broad assumptions
  • Expert modeling skills, with experience building complex operating models
  • Ability to distill complex financial information into actionable insights for leadership
  • Excellent communication skills and “story telling” ability when presenting data insights
  • Best-in-class attention to detail and unwavering commitment to accuracy
  • An understanding of business models and metrics that are relevant to OpenAI
  • Strong enthusiasm about technology and artificial intelligence
  • Experience with SQL
