Joseph Abebe was the first FP&A hire at Slack when it had around 70 employees. Prior to Slack Joseph worked at Glassdoor, YuMe and in investment banking. He is currently an advisor at Techstars and an angel investor.
In this episode we discuss how Joseph thinks about monitoring resource allocation, assessing talent, and the importance of listening, trusting and being able to delegate. He also shares his views on why companies should hire finance managers earlier than they think and a Bezos tip he recommends.
I hope you enjoy the show.
