Chief Financial Officer

Cycling’s new frontier…..designed in Hamilton……pioneering new ride experiences!

Are you an ambitious, highly skilled finance leader looking to step into your first CFO role?  Would you enjoy working for a straight shooting CEO who operates with passion, pace and pragmatism to get things done? And are you excited about being part of taking a new sport and brand to the global market?

With offices in Waikato, France and USA, Manta5 is well on its way to creating a new sports goods category of Hydrocycling.  With a passionate team of 30 in Waikato and over $7M of sales in the last year, they are now charting their journey towards global success with plans of an IPO on the horizon. They have recently implemented a new ERP system and are looking forward to using this power tool to influence decision making and process flow.
They operate a flexible work environment although all staff are required to be in the office 3-4 days per week.

As part of the executive team and reporting to the CEO you will undertake a combination of financial, commercial and operational tasks, including:



  • Financial modelling, forecasting and budgeting

  • Cashflow, sales & inventory reporting
  • Financial compliance
  • Managing HR, property & lease agreements
  • Developing accounting and commercial processes for international business
  • Management accounting and reporting
  • Contributing to the global strategic plans
  • Ensuring all financial management practices and processes are IPO ready

The team prides itself on being a bit different.  They hire for culture and exceptional talent, and they dare to be different in the way they think!  Being a start-up company no two days will look the same – one day you could be preparing high level information for the Board, and the next you could be on the water test-riding a Hydrofoiler.

Essential to your success will be manufacturing and supply chain knowledge, a passion for IT and technology, and high levels of dexterity to flex for the changing needs of this fast paced business.  You will be CA qualified, with some previous export or international business experience.  Bonus points for anyone who has had past involvement in an IPO.

If 2022 is the year for you to take your next step, and you’re not afraid of hard work, register your interest now. 

The successful applicant is required to be fully vaccinated against Covid, which will include booster vaccinations.
