Finance Officer

MiracleFeet is a global nonprofit working to eliminate a leading cause of physical disability worldwide. Over two million children live with the severe consequences of a treatable birth defect known as clubfoot, and 175,000 more babies are born with it every year. Thanks to a non-surgical solution called the Ponseti method, 95 percent of cases can be fully treated for less than $500. Since 2010, MiracleFeet has scaled this proven, low-cost treatment to 29 countries where children previously had limited or no access to care. Still, today fewer than one in five children has access to treatment.


Reporting to the Associate Director of Finance, the Finance Officer will play a key role in the increasingly complex financial management of a $7M (and growing) international nonprofit scaling its impact around the world. We are seeking someone well-versed in nonprofit accounting standards, Sage Intacct, and who will energetically take on finance responsibilities and help MiracleFeet strengthen its financial infrastructure.

The Finance Officer will manage the day-to-day finance operations, including accounts payable and receivable, general ledger, relationship management with banks and other vendors, and audit preparation. In addition, the Finance Officer will work hand-in-hand with the Associate Director of Finance to analyze our existing financial processes and systems and identify new opportunities to improve efficiencies and reporting.

This is an extraordinary opportunity for a hands-on finance professional to make an impact in a mission-driven organization. The ideal candidate is meticulous, driven, willing to investigate when they don’t know the answer, and eager to contribute their ideas and suggestions to an organization that constantly seeks to improve. This is a full-time, exempt position, which can be based in MiracleFeet’s Chapel Hill, NC office or remote.
