I'm very excited to introduce Matt Buchan, our new Director of Finance and Operations at Skilljar! I had the great privilege of working with Matt while at Amazon, and am absolutely thrilled to be doing it again. There is an incredible amount of back-office operations at a rapidly growing SaaS startup - financial planning and analysis, data and metrics, forecasting, bookkeeping and controllership, accounts receivable and payable, payroll, invoicing, income and sales tax, not to mention all the other corporate functions (HR, IT, procurement, facilities, compliance, and more). In just 1 week, Matt has already taken over these responsibilities and is making an enormous impact.
Matt is originally from Seattle and has spent the last year on sabbatical traveling the world. I have also recently learned that he is "virtually unbeatable at Bananagrams," and as a former Jeopardy contestant and American Crossword Puzzle Tournament participant myself, I heartily accept the challenge!
