Job description

At Seatfrog, we're remaking the rail category with our innovative platform, changing the game for rail operators and passengers alike. We pioneered a new way for rail operators to sell unsold first-class seats; generating incremental revenue and providing passengers with incredible upgrade deals.


We've come a long way since then. We’ve revolutionised the way people can travel by rail; expanded our platform allowing passengers to buy train tickets, upgrade them to 1st class, swap their trains at the last minute and much more. But we're not done yet - we have an exciting roadmap that will transform the way people experience rail travel, for good.

As Finance Director you’ll partner with the leadership team to ensure we’re driving growth, building a well oiled machine and maintaining a financial infrastructure and team that supports our journey into the new age of travel. We’ve outlined a few pointers around what we’re looking for below, but we still want to hear from you even if you don’t think you hit 100% of the criteria; we don’t want perfection to stand in the way of greatness!

You’ll:

  • Report directly to the CEO
  • Have experience in an environment where high volume transactions are the norm
  • Oversee financial planning, budgeting, and model forecasting processes
  • Manage financial reporting, including monthly and annual financial statements, management information packs and analysis
  • Monitor and manage the company's cash flow, working capital, and financial risk management
  • Provide strategic guidance on pricing, revenue strategy, and cost management measures
  • Collaborate closely with the executive team and heads of departments to support strategic and operational decision-making
  • Ensure compliance with financial regulations and accounting standards
  • Build close and trusted relationships with institutional investors, and bring experience in raising capital across the funding spectrum
  • Manage and build a high-performing finance team, fostering a culture of continuous improvement and professional development


We’re looking for:


  • A qualified accountant (ACC or ACCA or equivalent)
  • Proven experience as a Finance Director in a scaling technology business
  • Experience in successfully leading funding rounds and engaging with investors
  • Exceptional analytical and strategic thinking skills, with the ability to provide insights and recommendations to drive business performance
  • Excellent leadership and communication skills, with the ability to build and motivate a high-performing finance team


Piqued your interest?

It gets better - at Seatfrog, we believe in flexible working and ensuring the perfect work/life blend. That's why we offer a range of benefits that help our employees balance their personal and professional lives, including:

  • 4-day work week, so you can enjoy more time for the things that matter most to you
  • Enhanced parental leave, because we know family comes first
  • Health insurance, to help you stay healthy and happy
  • Workplace nursery scheme, to help ease the burden of childcare costs
  • EV Leasing, and Cycle 2 Work scheme, to make it easier for you to get to get around while still reducing your carbon footprint
  • True remote-first environment - we have a great office in London should you wish to use it, or we're happy for people to be fully remote (or a bit of both!)


Join us at Seatfrog, and you will be challenged and supported in equal measure, part of the team that's changing an industry, transforming the way people experience rail travel, and creating a better future for all. We offer a flexible and supportive work environment, great benefits, and the chance to work on cutting-edge projects with a team of talented and passionate individuals. Let's revolutionise the rail industry together!

At Seatfrog, we consider diversity a strength - inclusion fuels our ability to solve problems we never thought we could. Your application will be considered on its merits, without regard to your race, age, gender, religion, sexual orientation, disability status or anything else. If there is anything we need to know to enable you to fully participate in our interview process, please just let us know in your application.
