This person will report directly to the Director of FP&A, work closely with the VP of Finance, and work cross-functionally with many key stakeholders throughout the company.

The Company:

Jellysmack’s story started in 2016, and since then, our unrivaled platform optimizes and distributes video content across social media platforms and allows creators to reach genuine new fans with zero effort. We are the only company building the hyper-engaged communities that every creator dreams of because, first and foremost, we are creators too.
