Dublin, County Dublin   |   Full Time

Compensation: €55,000 - €75,000 + Stock Options


We are looking to hire a driven Finance & Operations Manager to join our team to manage our finances and operations, and assist our CEO in executing our business strategies. This is going to be a key role in the company that will touch multiple departments. 


Bounce Insights is a rapidly growing start-up set to more than double staff numbers each year until 2024. You will play a pivotal role in planning and achieving our business targets through running our internal operations and finances.


Ideal candidates are resourceful, diligent, organised, driven and have strong attention to detail. This is a huge opportunity for any candidate who wants to join a fast-growing company, take on high-responsibility tasks and accelerate their career. You must be confident in making high level decisions that will have a direct impact on company performance. 


You will be required to be flexible in this position and must be prepared to undertake such other duties as may be assigned to you by the Company from time to time. Please note that responsibilities may be revised to reflect ongoing business needs or your own development needs.

 


Company Description: Bounce is a consumer research platform that enables consumer facing brands to gather authentic consumer data from any cohort they need access to. We are creating the future of consumer research, enabling brands to validate the assumptions behind every decision they make at speed. We achieve this through an end-to-end research platform with a team of experts to make capturing insights fast, agile and convenient for any brand. 


We have already gained an impressive set of clients in Ireland in our first year of business, including Diageo, Coca Cola HBC, Glanbia, Tesco, Musgraves & Pernod Ricard to name a few. We are on a mission to revolutionise how they reach and understand their customers. We are currently a team of 11, and are set to triple our headcount in 2022 and enter the UK.


We are growing very rapidly, and have positions for people who are willing to learn fast, take on very challenging work and manage high-responsibility tasks early on. New team members are likely to be prime drivers of our success and directly attribute their effort to the growth of our company. We believe that early team members should have ownership in the company they make, and therefore offer stock options as part of their compensation packages.
