About EliseAI

EliseAI develops cutting-edge conversational AI technology for industries fundamental to our lives: housing and healthcare. Everything is built on the foundation of health and home. Broken systems or ineffective processes in these domains have a disproportionate impact on our quality of life and society’s overall wellbeing. Conversely, any solution or technology that solves problems in these areas will have an impact that ripples far beyond them.

That’s the only kind of impact we are interested in having at EliseAI. If you get excited by the thought of working really hard on these kinds of problems, then EliseAI is the right place for you.

About The Role

EliseAI is looking for a VP of Strategic Finance to work closely with our CFO to drive the financial strategy and operations of the company. You will play a key role in strategic decision-making, managing investor relations, and ensuring the financial health and integrity of the company. As a fast-growing business, there will be ample opportunities to lead special projects, which will enable you to expand your expertise and skill set across different products and business lines.

Key Responsibilities

  • Manage company-wide budgeting, forecasting, and financial reporting processes to influence business direction, operational support, and investment decisions.
  • Partner with business unit leaders to provide financial insights and analysis to support strategic decision-making.
  • Assist with fundraising, investor relations, and board management.
  • Ensure the company's compliance with all applicable accounting standards and tax regulations, including ASC 606, ASC 842, ASC 718, income tax, and sales and use tax.
  • Manage and cultivate relationships with external auditors, banks, and other institutions.
  • Identify and implement opportunities to improve financial processes and systems, internal controls, and risk management processes.
  • Evaluate and assess new initiatives, growing and scaling the Finance team with the Company.
  • Attract top-tier talent to join our driven team.

  • CPA and/or MBA additive, but not required
  • 3+ years of experience in a finance leadership role, preferably in the software/AI industry.
  • Background in investment banking, private equity, and/or venture capital additive, but not required.
  • Ability to thrive in a fast-paced, dynamic environment and adapt to changing priorities to solve problems and achieve results with minimal direction.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to distill complex financial concepts into clear, actionable insights.
  • Strong knowledge of GAAP, financial planning, and forecasting,
  • Strong financial modeling and forecasting skills.
  • Demonstrated experience with successful audit completion.
  • Experience with financial systems and accounting software.

Why Join

Growth and impact. It’s not often that you can get in on the ground floor of a funded startup that’s scaling. That means that instead of following a playbook, you’ll be writing it. Every single day you will be challenged to identify how we can scale and execute on it. You’ll learn what works when you succeed and what doesn’t when you fail. Either way, the rest of the team will be here to support you.


In addition to the growth and impact you’ll have at EliseAI, we offer competitive salaries along with the following benefits:

  • Equity in the company in the form of stock options
  • Medical, Dental and Vision premiums covered at 100%
  • Fully paid parental leave
  • Commuter benefits
  • 401k benefits
  • Monthly fitness stipend
  • Our brand new Midtown south office with an open floor plan, fully stocked kitchen, and company paid lunch
  • Fun company social events through our Elise and the City program
  • Unlimited vacation and paid holidays

We'll cover relocation packages from outside of the Greater NYC metro area - we'll make the move exciting, not painful.

Job Compensation Range:

The salary range for this role is $240,000-300,000 EliseAI offers a competitive total rewards package which includes base salary, equity, and a comprehensive benefits & perks package.
