About Ephemeral


We’re on a mission to create a world where every body is a canvas for limitless self-expression. In
2021, after 6 years of research and development, we launched the world’s first and only
made-to-fade tattoo that lasts a year. With our technology and our experiential Ephemeral
Studios, we are making it possible for anyone to wear a tattoo that changes as they change.
Read more about us in Bloomberg, Forbes, Vogue or The Cut.

Despite being a 12,000 year old consumer category, tattooing has seen little innovation, while
continuing to be held back by stigma and permanence. At Ephemeral, we see tattoos as an
empowering, beautiful and creative way to express your identity. We dream of a day when
tattoos become the number one form of global self-expression.

We are looking for teammates that share this passion and are excited by the prospect of
building without a playbook, are undaunted by big audacious ideas and are committed to
teamwork.


Why You’ll Love Working at Ephemeral
1) We are creative – We see problems as opportunities for innovation, love when playbooks don’t
exist and push the boundaries of what’s possible.
2) We are owners - Leadership is expected at every level at Ephemeral, during good and bad
times.
3) We are caring - Our priority is the physical and mental well being of our customers and teams.
4) We work to earn trust by taking care of them in every interaction.

 

About the Team
Ephemeral’s Finance team is responsible for partnering with functional leaders to set long term
strategic initiatives, oversee all capital and controllership decisions, analyze financial
performance and manage investor relationships.


About the Role
The VP of Finance is a super dynamic role that will build and oversee a series of complex
processes, strategies and decision making frameworks for Ephemeral. We are on the heels of
our Series A, growing a large fleet of Studios and are almost entirely vertically integrated.
You will be Ephemeral’s first Finance hire and will have the opportunity to build out our finance
infrastructure: from planning and analysis to controllership to organization design.


As VP of Finance, you will focus most of your efforts on FPA and business operations. However,
given our stage, you will also be initially responsible for setting up foundational accounting and
cash management practices, but over time that responsibility will be delegated.
You will play a major role in company financing strategy, expansion, total organization building
and in growth activities, such as pricing and marketing.


You’re excited about this opportunity because you will…
● Build and oversee Ephemeral’s financial planning and management process, inclusive of
annual forecasting and routine PL and cash flow analysis.
● Partner with company leadership to establish department and company wide financial goals.
● Define investment and financing strategies in support of Ephemeral’s 5-year vision in partnership with the CEO.
● Establish initial controllership and implement good accounting practices with a focus onscalability.

 

We’re excited about you because…
● You have ~10 years of FPA experience with a demonstrable grasp of basic accounting principles.
● You have the ability to balance the tension between financial rigor and commercial intuition.
● You understand how to navigate complex investment decisions.
● You have a track record of building and innovating.
● You have the ability to influence peers.
● You have a bachelor’s degree in finance.


Nice to Haves
● You have an MBA in Finance or Strategy.
● You have experience in a vertically integrated environment.
