Operations and Finance Analyst

Goalbook - San Mateo, California - Full time

Our Mission

Goalbook’s mission is to empower teachers to transform instruction so that ALL students can succeed. We currently partner with 500 districts across 45 states, working closely with district and school leaders to improve instructional practice. Goalbook was founded in 2011 by Daniel Jhin Yoo and Justin Su. Goalbook was a member of YC Edtech’s first cohort and the first investment made in Reach Capital’s Seed Fund.

Who We’re Looking For

This role executes on essential behind-the-scenes functions of operations, finance, accounting, legal, facilities, IT, and compliance. You’ll collaborate with other teams and assist with people operations and sales operations. At its core, this role functions as the glue of the company, ensuring that every team member across the country is fully supported by the organization.

This isn’t the typical operations or finance role. We’re not raising money or trying to get acquired. Rather, we are focused on building a sustainable long-term business that achieves long-term impact, and our company’s operations and finance will reflect these ideals. We are looking for an innovator to contribute to this work.

Key Responsibilities

  • Execute on back-office operations, including HR and benefits, legal, insurance, facilities, business licenses, and state compliance.
  • Establish and enforce consistent and equitable organizational policies. Build relationships of trust with managers across teams and collaborate to improve processes.
  • Oversee key finance and accounting processes, including receivables, payables, and processing of customer payments.
  • Contribute to special projects around sales, recruiting, and people operations.

Required Skills & Experience

  • 2+ years operations experience in a startup environment
  • Highly organized - you are obsessed with creating order and consistency
  • Skilled in writing clearly and succinctly
  • Entrepreneurial spirit and a doer - this is an extremely hands-on role


  • Full medical, dental, and vision coverage
  • Safe Harbor 401k matching
  • Open vacation policy and flexible schedule

Goalbook is committed to building a diverse and passionate team that is ready to serve ALL students in the US public school system. We are an equal opportunity employer and strongly encourage applications from all people of diversity, including those with diverse needs, backgrounds, abilities, and other distinct characteristics.
