Alate Partners is looking for a Director of Finance to join our team

Alate Partners launched in 2018 with $40MM in seed capital to support technology companies that are rethinking how real estate is designed, built, and managed. We are looking for an experienced Director of Finance to build and lead Alate’s finance function - everything from refining our internal reporting infrastructure and budgeting to supporting new investments and portfolio companies. This is a unique opportunity to join a company on the ground floor and work with visionary leaders who are shaping the future of the real estate industry.

This job might be for you if:

You are a strategic leader, but not afraid to roll up your sleeves. We are a small, nimble team, so you’ll be responsible for our end-to-end finance, accounting, and treasury activities.

You love to wear many hats. You enjoy the challenge of working on various types of projects alongside different stakeholders across the entire organization. You can effectively communicate just about anything to just about anyone.

There are always more things on your to-do list than you can accomplish in a day, but you are focused on what is important and are comfortable juggling multiple projects.

You are detail oriented, but able to thrive in unstructured environments. You enjoy building and refining processes that make the business more effective and efficient.

You are naturally curious and love to learn. You are excited to take on new challenges and comfortable working independently and seeking help when you need it.

You have a sense of humour and a can-do attitude.

Responsibilities include:

  • Develop accounting systems and policies based on best practices and lead the end-to-end accounting, including AR, AP and payroll

  • Develop and manage the Company’s operational budget

  • Lead audit and compliance requirements

  • Support new investments and opportunities such as overseeing legal processes and providing ad-hoc analysis

  • Manage investor relations and support fundraising activities

  • Support portfolio companies, as required

A typical day might include the following:

  • Negotiate legal documents with counsel regarding an investment

  • Review investment activities and manage cash flows for the business

  • Attend a pitch from an entrepreneur

  • Create relevant financial reports for our investors and partners

  • Coach a portfolio company’s CFO on financial reporting and governance

You might be a good fit if you have:

  • BA/BS degree in accounting, a quantitative or business-oriented field, or equivalent practical experience

  • CPA designation

  • Strong technical knowledge of accounting policies

  • Experience in real estate or M&A is an asset

  • 5+ years of progressively senior and relevant experience

Additional details:

  • This role is located in Toronto. Some travel may be required.

  • We offer a competitive compensation and benefits package. Exact compensation will be determined by your experience, skills, and education.
