At Framework, we believe the time has come for consumer electronics products that are designed to last. Founded in San Francisco in 2019, our mission is to empower you with great products you can easily customize, upgrade, and repair, increasing longevity and reducing e-waste in the process.
Our first product is the Framework Laptop, a thin, lightweight, high-performance 13.5” notebook that can be upgraded, customized, and repaired in ways that no other notebook can. To support this, we’re also standing up a marketplace to enable an ecosystem of new, used, and refurbished products and modules.
We come from successful consumer electronics startups including the founding team of Oculus and e-commerce companies, and we’re funded to fulfill our mission. We care deeply about building a diverse and inclusive team, and we hope you do too!
We’re looking for a Finance Manager to be the first member of Framework’s finance, planning, and biz ops team. This role spans general finance and FP&A functions, as well as leading overall economic strategy around a complex consumer hardware product and marketplace business. We need a creative problem solver who has both deep existing knowledge of hardware businesses and an interest in adapting that to the novel business model we have adopted in Framework. Since we’re an early stage start-up, this role can cover a broad range of functional areas in finance and business operations depending on your strengths and interests.
We’re headquartered in Burlingame, CA, and are open to local, relocated, or remote candidates.
