Full Time
To us, home is the most special place in life. There is something pleasant about the sweetness of home: the sharing of spaces, our time and energy, our passions and commitments. We think home should be a place for adventure and discovery - not just an dwelling place, but a place where you can find all of the people, tools and amenities you need to live your best life.

We are on a journey to create a global network of co-living spaces that are designed around a modern generation that value community and convenience. We are capitalising on serious changes in urbanisation, demographics and the sharing economy - combined with a vast under supply of rental properties and a growing desire to rent over buy. Our addressable market is huge and requires minimal penetration to generate billions in revenue. Co-living is transforming the real estate dynamics and will begin disrupting industry.

We are planning to launch our first location in early 2020 and are aiming to have 10,000 studios globally by 2025.

We are looking for an extremely ambitious and experienced CFO to join as a Co-Founder and lead the financial strategy that will enable us to achieve our growth plans while ensuring we maintain industry-leading profit margins and ROI. You will lead fundraising strategy, manage relationships with current and potential investors and capital partners.

You will be joining at an exciting early stage and will be critical in shaping the company and our future success, your key responsibility may be financial but your focus should be success and that will span every aspect of the business. If you are looking for a typical CFO role this certainly is not for you. We have huge growth plans and need a dynamic leader who wants to build a truly global business. All of the founders will devote the time and energy needed to make the business a success. It is incredibly important you share the long term vision of KOJO and have a burning desire to build and scale our brand and operation on a global level. The success of the company will be your mission!

Convince us why you are the best possible candidate for this role and that you have what it takes to be a crucial part of building a global business. Be sure to share examples of previous entrepreneurial ventures as well as how your professional experience will help KOJO realise its vision.
