The stakes are high for job-hunting finance executives looking for a new leadership role at a young software-as-a-service (SaaS) company.
In the best case scenario, you land at job at which you can help steer a promising early-stage SaaS vendor to rapid growth and market leadership. You rack up impressive career accomplishments, enjoy lucrative compensation, expand your network, and gain personal satisfaction.
In the worst case, your new job ends up being a dumpster fire inside a train wreck. Misunderstanding, miscommunication, and hidden problems conspire to have you looking for another position in a matter of months.
