Nearly every company in the world runs on custom software: Gartner estimates that up to 50% of all code is written for internal use. This is the operational software for refunding orders, underwriting loans, onboarding employees, analyzing transactions, and providing customer support. But most companies don’t have adequate resources to properly invest in these tools, leading to a lot of old and clunky internal software or, even worse, users still stuck in manual and spreadsheet flows. 

At Retool, we’re on a mission to bring good software to everyone. We’re building  a new type of development platform that combines the benefits of traditional software development with a drag-and-drop UI editor and AI, making it dramatically faster to build internal tools. We believe that the future of software development lies in abstracting away the tedious and repetitive tasks developers waste time on, while creating reusable components that act as a force multiplier for future developers and projects. The result is not just productivity, but good software by default. And that’s a mission worth striving for. 

Today, our customers span from small startups building their first operational tools to Fortune 500 companies building mission-critical apps for thousands of users across their business. Interested in joining us? Let us know! 


Retool is growing rapidly and entering a new stage of maturity. To support this growth and help Retool scale to the next level, we are looking for an experienced Corporate Finance Lead who can partner with our CEO, CFO, and other executives to help us thoughtfully allocate our resources and drive execution against the company’s short and long-term financial ambitions. As the Corporate Finance Lead:


  • Lead quarterly, annual, and long-range planning processes and use them to help guide investment decision-making and efficient resource allocation
  • Partner with leaders across the business, from product and engineering, to GTM, to operations, and support strategic decision making and initiative prioritization
  • Design and deliver timely reporting packages and provide insights on key business trends and financial performance to the executive team and the board
  • Bring structure and clarity to the finance function by owning the FP&A calendar and our recurring cadences
  • Evaluate opportunities to up-level the operations of the Finance team, partnering with Accounting to support our path toward IPO-readiness
  • Drive projects to better understand our long-term growth opportunities and identify how we can operate more efficiently
  • Support the CEO, CFO, and Head of FP&A on communications to investors and other external stakeholders, bringing clarity to our growth and efficiency narratives


  • BA/BS in Economics, Math, Finance, Engineering, CS, or other quantitative field; MBA or other advanced degree a plus
  • 8+ years of work experience, preferably in investment banking, PE / VC, management consulting, or FP&A / Strategic Finance at a high-growth technology company
  • Excellent analytical problem-solving skills with ability to unearth insights and turn them into recommendations and action plans
  • Highly proficient in Excel / Sheets with exceptional modeling skills and attention to detail
  • Extremely organized and structured, with a proven ability to run projects and processes from end-to-end
  • Ability to effectively build and maintain cross-functional relationships, manage multiple competing priorities, and drive projects to completion
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills, able to synthesize findings and concisely articulate them to an array of audiences
  • Self-starter with a demonstrated ability to adapt to a rapidly-changing environment
  • Excellent understanding of accounting (e.g., US GAAP) and corporate finance concepts
