  • Establish and maintain a governance structure around SaaS cost accounting, coordinating closely with AP and Accounting to book key expenses (e.g. hosting invoices)
  • Assist with projects to automate / improve internal processes to free up team bandwidth for value-added initiatives
  • Assist with ad hoc projects / requests, including idea-to-offer business cases, long-range planning, and pricing/packaging

  

What you’ll bring:

  • 5+ years of relevant experience, including building a driver-based SaaS costing model to forecast expenses related to AWS or a similar hosting infrastructure
  • Strong desire to develop a career in financial planning and analysis
  • Strong analytical skills and attention to detail
  • Expertise in Microsoft Excel and Google Sheets
  • Familiarity with Oracle, Adaptive Insights, or related financial planning tools
  • Ability to problem solve and handle competing priorities

After six months, you will…

  • Have established cross-functional relationships with the cloud ops team, product managers, engineers, and other stakeholders
  • Provide a readout on techniques to optimize our hosting COGS
  • Provide an update on the company’s long-term SaaS margins based on your research and cross-functional collaboration with internal stakeholders

After about a year, you will…

  • Help deliver pricing proposals that incorporate our understanding of hosting COGS at the feature-level and customer-level
  • Help negotiate vendor contracts that set Infoblox up for success around hosting COGS management
  • Grow your leadership skills and career by building out Infoblox’s SaaS COGS model
