Are You Uncommon?

We’re on the hunt for an experienced FP&A Analyst who ranks in the top 2% among their peers. We’re looking for a highly competitive and entrepreneurial mindset that is wired with a team-first attitude, has no problem rolling up their sleeves to execute their missions, and can modulate between leading and following as needed.

 

Solera operates in a decentralized and vertically integrated finance model that is designed to support its Mission of reaching $2 billion US in revenue and US $800 million in EBITDA by FY’20. Though Solera is already operating in many countries globally, it is continuing to make new acquisitions and therefore its financials are more complex. The Financial Analyst will be a key member of the US Corp FP&A team, helping to ensure that Solera’s financial information is an actual strength for the company. The Analyst will work with the business unit(s) to oversee and coordinate the FP&A process, as well as add-value through strategic projects and initiatives focused on improving processes and developing best-in-class analytics to help drive the business forward.

 

The Solera Way

Solera’s uncommon culture is based on three simple principles: 80/20 (Focus), 30/30 (Efficiency), and 90/10 (accountability). Our mindset is also defined by the 3H’s: Humility, a Hunger to succeed, and a desire to Hunt for opportunities to win. Underscored by our fundamental belief in continuous change and innovation, the Solera Way has allowed us to become a global technology leader that is constantly growing in the double digits.

 

Our Space

We believe that offices should be destinations where people want to be… places where people want to work, play and, collaborate. That is why we spend a lot of time on enhancing our workspaces. Solera’s work environments are intersections of the old and the new… of the past, present, and future. They are spaces designed to stimulate creative thinking, innovation, and cross-functional collaboration.

 

We also embrace wellness. Whether it is our onsite or offsite workout centers, nutritional meals and beverages, or endless snacks for focus and energy. This wellness plan is our commitment to healthy living, which spans across our office environments.
