Finance Manager

/pandō/ noun: a grove of aspen trees with a single underground root system.

An individual aspen tree is vulnerable. It sways in the wind and draws nutrients only from its own roots. When aspens grow in colonies, however, their roots fuse, and form one massive living organism. The grove is resilient and better together. Human beings are no different than aspens. At our best, we rely on each other for financial and social support and help those who are vulnerable. 

The nature of work is changing, and we face a new challenge. Career volatility is increasing broadly, exposing many to unpredictable earnings and an uncertain financial future. Our existing community-based support networks are not designed to protect us from this risk. When it comes to our careers, we stand alone – but we don’t have to. Like Aspens, we can rely on each other for support and help those who are vulnerable. 

Introducing income pooling. Simply, an income pool is a pando for your career earnings. Individuals choose a group and form a pool, or pando. Each person pledges a small portion of their future earnings, above a hurdle, to the pando, and any money is distributed equally among the members. Everyone joins before knowing how their career will play out, and the alignment of economic interests encourages cooperation. Those who make less benefit most and those who make most benefit the entire group. Through income pooling – through Pando – we build a future where we’re better together. 

Founded in 2017 out of Stanford, Pando has raised ~$12M from top fintech VCs. Our clients represent a star-studded cross section of the economy and include professional baseball players, entrepreneurs, and business school graduates. We are a mission-oriented team of smart, driven, and humble individuals. If you feel like you would thrive in this type of inclusive, fast-paced environment, we’d love to talk to you!

Experience / Skills 

  • 4+ years of quantitative experience in investment banking, private equity, consulting, venture capital or an analytical role at a startup
