Good storytelling starts with great listening. At Audible, that means each role and every project has our audience in mind. Because the same people who design, develop, and deploy our products also happen to use them. To us, that speaks volumes.

Reporting into the Senior Finance Director, the Financial Planning and Analysis (FP&A) lead will work closely with APAC business teams to manage financial planning processes and analytics.

The ideal candidate will be a motivated self-starter who has high attention to detail and can work independently in a fast-paced environment while scaling comfortably in FP&A. You should be a fast learner with outstanding business acumen, intense curiosity, excellent analytical abilities, a strong bias towards data-driven decision making, as well as superior written and verbal communication skills.

At Audible, we innovate and inspire through the power of voice. We're changing the narrative on storytelling. As a leading creator and provider of premium audio storytelling, we've redefined the ways people access, discover, and share stories. The stories we tell have the ability to transport and transform everyday moments into meaningful experiences and it's our people who make Audible's service possible. We're listeners, storytellers, and problem-solvers. Our perspectives and experiences power our ideas and come together in our mission to unleash the power of the spoken word. Audible offers a Hub+Home hybrid workplace model that gives employees flexibility between gathering in an Audible workspace (work from hub) and remote work (work from home).
