Kalshi is a an exchange where people can trade on the outcome of events. Our vision is to allow people to capitalize on what they know and what they believe in by making predictions on the outcome of things they’re interested in.
What we're up to:
Kalshi has launched the first regulated financial exchange that allows people to trade on the anticipated outcome of events. We’re now looking for the right people to help us continue to grow and scale.
Our vision is to allow people to capitalize on their opinions and hedge risks that relate to their everyday lives, from "Will New York City close indoor dining?” to "Will 2021 be the hottest year on record?"
We're on a long journey in uncharted territories and are looking for passionate and outlier members excited to embark on this voyage towards building the future of the financial system.
In the Finance Operations role, you will be a one of the first members of Kalshi's Finance team. An exchange is a highly complex machine with complex cash flows. The Finance team is responsible for managing the finances from the perspective of the company's operations as well as that of the exchange's financial transactions. We're scaling, which means your role will evolve and grow with the company; your initial attack threads include:
Managing the routine cash-flow operations between the exchange and the clearinghouse Monitoring and validating clearing and settlement performed by the clearinghouse for our markets Educating exchange participants on the different tax requirements that apply to their trading activities Working with the executive team to develop financial strategy including budgeting and revenue projections Managing compliance with regulatory requirements Managing regulatory reporting and quarterly financial submissions to the CFTC Running financial accounting and overseeing tax preparation
The rest of what the role looks like is up to you - a big part of our approach is that you get to chart your path as we grow and evolve. There's a lot of green field to conquer, we trust that you'll make a lot of it your own :)
We are a group of people who work hard and get things done, and we're looking for more people like that! Meritocracy is at our core, and we value people who take ownership and figure (usually hard) things out - we don't care much about anything other than the product of your work. We think of Kalshi as a family bound together by our mission: we believe that this is the best (and most fun!) way to work. Kalshians are, by far, Kalshi's largest asset and we're obsessed with growing and investing in our people.
