What is PROVEN?

Founded in 2017 by two women of color, PROVEN harnesses groundbreaking artificial intelligence to create personalized, adaptive, clinically-effective skincare tailored to each individual’s unique needs. 

Our belief is simple: Everyone deserves skincare as unique as they are. Based on our proprietary, award-winning Skin Genome Project™ database—the world’s largest beauty knowledge base—our technology turns millions of scientific data points into personalized skincare formulations that deliver results.

We’re relentless in our pursuit of science; driven by our love of data; and committed to transforming the one-size-fits-all skincare industry. To date, we’ve earned MIT’s AI Technology of the Year Award and Glossy’s Best Use of Technology Award—not to mention the first-ever U.S. patent for personalization in skincare. And that’s just the start: In 2022, we launched our sister company, Noteworthy Scents, to help people discover a fragrance they love through an innovative, AI-backed fragrance experience. 

We have assembled a world-class team of scientists, engineers, data analysts, creatives, marketers, business experts, customer support specialists, and operations professionals. We’re dedicated to our mission, growing quickly (over 50% just last year), and are always on the lookout for passionate team members. Join us at!

What We’re Looking For:

We are seeking a highly quantitative, results-driven Sr. FP&A Analyst to join our Finance team! The Sr. FP&A Analyst will be instrumental in financial planning, budgeting, forecasting, and analysis to support our company's strategic decision-making process.

This role will partner closely with and across all other teams, particularly the data, growth, brand, operations, and executive teams; the ideal candidate is excited about data, telling the financial story of a business, and working in a small agile team. This is a hugely influential role within the organization, and the right candidate will help shape the future of finance for both PROVEN & Noteworthy - curiosity is a must.

  • Data Analysis: Utilize advanced data analysis techniques to gather insights, identify trends, and make data-driven recommendations to improve financial performance and departmental KPIs
  • Variance Analysis: Monitor financial performance against budget and forecast, providing meaningful variance analysis and explanations to key stakeholders.
  • Financial Reporting: Prepare and distribute regular financial and KPI reports to senior management  and other relevant teams.
  • Business Partnering: Collaborate with various departments, including marketing, operations, and sales, to provide financial insights and support decision-making.

  • Excellent communication and presentation skills with the ability to convey complex financial information to non-finance stakeholders.
  • Proven ability to work effectively in a fast-paced, collaborative team environment.
  • Detail-oriented with a strong analytical and strategic mindset who can provide valuable insights to support business decisions
