About Us

At Blank Street, we believe great coffee should be an everyday ritual. With shops across Brooklyn, Manhattan, Boston, DC, and London, we’re making quality coffee more accessible. Blank Street originated in an effort to change the specialty coffee status quo. Starting with small-format shops and continuing with a simplified menu and top-of-the-line tech, we’ve always been focused on improving the coffee experience. We partner with amazing local vendors and brands, and have some of the best baristas and HQ members out there on our team. Love coffee? Keep reading

What’s Brewing?

We are looking for a business leader to lead Blank Street’s UK Finance function. As our Senior Finance Manager, your core objective will be to help build a world-class financial planning and analysis function that provides support & fuel to the company's growth initiatives.

The Senior Finance Manager will also build out the Strategic Finance arm of the UK Finance function and lead the financial modeling and analysis of growth initiatives, Blank Street’s 5-year growth plan and 3-year budget for the UK market. As we grow the brand further, you will be responsible for evaluating if we need additional team members who would be reporting into you.

This role is an in-person position at our London Office. The UK Senior Finance Manager will report into the Global Head of Finance and have a dotted line to the UK Managing Director.
