About the role

Mr Yum's financial controller reports to the CEO and is responsible for managing the financial and accounting operations of a growing startup. If you have experience supporting a startup through exponential growth and capital raises, with a strategic-mind and a love for numbers, we'd love to meet you.

This is the first finance role in the company so there will be an exciting mix of commercial strategy, board reports, support on investor updates as well as compliance and reporting. We work with an awesome bookkeeper and accounting firm so there is external support too.

About Mr Yum - Recap of 2020

Hi, we’re Mr Yum 👋

Hospitality & entertainment are tough industries where margins are slim and even more challenging now through COVID. We started Mr Yum at the end of 2018 to help venues make the numbers work.Our product is a QR code visual menu, ordering & payment platform with options for dine-in orders, pickup takeaway and delivery. Mr Yum empowers businesses to own and understand their customers, increase spend and allow their staff to focus on meaningful interactions rather than transactional ones.

In 2020, we grew 25x, found product market fit, built a trusted brand and proved out strong unit economics. Read more at our Mr Yum 2020 Recap
