TIME Is Looking to Hire A CFO Who Has “Comfort with Bitcoin and Cryptocurrency”
Media company TIME is hiring for a crypto-friendly Chief Finance Officer, per its LinkedIn post.
With a focus on building a “better future” in the current environment where the media industry is undergoing rapid evolution, one of the requirements for the CFO is to have a “Comfort with Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies” to guide TIME ’ transformation.
As we have been seeing, ever since MicroStrategy put Bitcoin on its balance sheet in the second half of last year, corporations like Tesla and Square, among many other smaller ones, have jumped on this trend to protect their funds against fiat debasement.
It is possible that TIME will release a similar announcement of adding the leading cryptocurrency to its Treasury.
Recently, TIME interviewed MicroStrategy CEO Michael Saylor, who explained that his mission is “to fix the balance sheets of the world.”
In December 2018, TIME featured Bitcoin proponent and Chief Strategy Officer at the Human Rights Foundation, Alex Gladstein’s “Why Bitcoin Matters for Freedom.”
Responsible for the company’s investments, budgeting, and financial reporting to drive their financial strategy and growth trajectory, proactively research economic trends, monitor performance and compliance with global, federal, state, and local financial requirements, the candidate is further required to have 7+ years experience besides being crypto-friendly.
The candidate also needs to have a proven record of success managing a central finance function, skills to drive disciplined planning and forecasting, understanding of advanced accounting, regulatory issues, tax planning, and working knowledge of dynamic ways to build a business.
