Ada Developers Academy is embarking on an exciting journey to become an independent 501(c)(3) and is seeking an experienced finance professional to build and run the newly formed finance function. Ada’s annual budget is expected to be $6M in the next fiscal year with a staff of twenty. The Finance Manager will work closely with the Director of Operations to create a fully operational finance function by January 2021 and then support the function on an ongoing basis. This role has dual focus on both the big picture and implementation details, requiring the ability to think strategically in addition to keeping the lights on and the staff paid. This is a unique opportunity for a service-oriented individual who is excited to build and manage a finance function from the ground up.
Ada Developers Academy (ADA) (www.adadevelopersacademy.org), located in downtown Seattle, provides an intensive software developer training program for women and gender non-binary students with little or no prior software development experience. In one year, students are taught programming techniques and best practices to enable them to become junior developers. The program consists of two distinct parts - six months in the Ada classroom, and five months of internship at local sponsor companies where students refine their skills working on real-world code.
