About the Role:

We're searching for an accomplished Accounting Manager with experience planning, tracking, reprioritizing, and optimizing resources across our Global Controllership at scale. This new role, reporting to the Director of Global Corporate Accounting, will spend their time in two areas: 1) traditional monthly close, to stay close to the operation, and 2) Controllership-level program management / resource management.

You Will:

  • Build a dynamic plan and resource management model for the Global Controllership. This plan will become a necessary part of our daily leadership routine, helping those leaders efficiently and effectively ensure our focus and results are on our highest value outcomes.
  • Collaborate with other finance and business leaders on our overall project intake process, ensuring our priorities and growth areas that require Controllership support are well-planned for and resourced.
  • Become an expert in our monthly close process, with a focus on pinch points, imbalances in the line, and individuals’ skills, to lead optimization opportunities and awareness for more engaging planning and resource modeling.
  • Over time, become an expert on all aspects of corporate accounting processes, from top-line revenue and the complexities associated with the order-to-cash process and systems, to more traditional areas including foreign currencies, internally developed software, cloud computing arrangements, stock-based compensation, and transfer pricing.
  • Help determine alternatives for product / improvement launches, assist with user acceptance testing, participate in product launch work sessions, build relationships, and lead an operating model with product, engineering, business teams and leadership read-outs.
  • Lead and foster a culture of continuous improvement and change, helping ensure we evolve our accounting organization and underlying processes to accelerate scale and improve quality.

You Have:

  • Bachelor’s degree in accounting and 5+ years of experience
  • CPA and public accounting experience
  • Project management experience and certifications preferred
  • Lean / six-sigma / continuous improvement experience
  • Experience working in NetSuite or similar ERP systems

  • Company contributions to your HSA or FSA plan, if you choose one
  • Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP) available for eligible employees
  • Continuing education and corridor travel benefits
