Chief Financial Officer
Leading an already proven team, the CFO will be responsible for orchestrating Burning Man’s financial planning, forecasting & budgeting, treasury &investment management, risk management, real estate investments, accounting infrastructure, controls, finance tech, audits and financial relations with partners. The CFO must be able to apply the kind of thinking, structured financial practices and workflows that are developed in complex corporate environments, to a world-changing cultural movement that thrives on experimentation.
CFO will work closely with the CEO and COO, others across the organization and with Board members and advisors to craft and execute the organization’s strategies, priorities and goals with reference to its financial condition. The CFO and the Finance Team will also partner with the Philanthropic Engagement (fundraising) Team to create the equivalent of donor advised instruments and endowment funds.
The nonprofit Burning Man Project produces its annual flagship event in Nevada and provides inspiration, connection, education, and grants to a creative global ecosystem of builders, makers, artists, and community leaders active in more than 40 US states and 35 countries. With a year-round staff of 160 employees and a budget of $70M, the organization’s work spans six interconnected program areas: Art, Education, Civic Involvement, Culture, Philosophical Center, andSocial Enterprise.
