The search is on for a new chief financial officer at You.i TV, one who will not only be tasked with raising capital for the Kanata firm’s next stage of growth, but will also have to big shoes to fill following the retirement of Peter Rose.
Rose joined You.i as CFO in 2014 after nearly two decades in the industry including raising more than $80 million in financing at BelAir Networks and completing a $32.5-million IPO at Milkway Networks, according to his LinkedIn profile. Under his tenure, You.i, which develops interactive platforms for streaming services and smart TVs, raised $12 million in a series-B funding round led by Time Warner last September.
Raising capital will be critical for the incoming CFO, according to a job posting on Glassdoor, which says the new executive “will play a key role that will take us from 10s of millions to 100s of millions in revenues.”
If you think you may be right for the job but remain unconvinced, the company lists stock options and bottomless coffee as potential perks of the gig.
