About Quora:

The vast majority of human knowledge is still not on the internet. Most of it is trapped in the form of experience in people’s heads, or buried in books and papers that only experts can access. More than a billion people use the internet, yet only a tiny fraction contribute their knowledge to it. We want to democratize access to knowledge of all kinds — from politics to painting, cooking to coding, etymology to experiences — so if someone out there knows something, anyone else can learn it. Our mission is to share and grow the world’s knowledge, and we’re building a world-class team to help us achieve this mission.

About the Team:

The Finance and Operations (“FinOps”) team ensures that Quora maintains a healthy, fun, and productive foundation from which the broader company can work together and scale effectively to achieve our mission.

In FinOps, we support this by staying nimble and efficient, simplifying complexity, and working hard to preserve the best things about working at Quora as we scale. We seek a balance between being strategic and operational while learning quickly from the past, then focusing on what it means for our future.
