What does the role look like?

You will play a significant role across accounting, finance operations, tax, audit, and compliance for a high growth marketplace startup. You will serve as a trusted partner to the Head of Finance and, over time, have the opportunity to gain exposure to other elements of the business. 

Key responsibilities include:

  • Manage monthly close process, including reconciliations and consolidation, and prepare statements, schedules, and supporting documentation
  • Identify and implement process improvements and automation to reduce time to close and improve accuracy of underlying accounting records
  • Assist in creation and maintenance of internal controls and policies
  • Perform technical accounting research and prepare memos to support position
  • Coordinate and manage tax filings and compliance in the US and abroad
  • Manage annual audits and interface with external auditors on audit matters
  • Implement automation of accounting processes and assist with special projects

Your first 90 days will look like the following:

  • Within 30 days, you will fully understand the accounting for our business, including the month end close process, the different components of our financial statements, and the key priorities and roadmap for the accounting function
  • Within 60 days, you will be leading month end close (in conjunction with our 3rd party bookkeepers) and interacting closely with auditors for our 2023 financial audit
  • Within 90 days, you will have migrated accounting in-house and identified and executed on process improvements, internal controls, and automation / real time cost reporting

Who you are

You are someone who loves finance and numbers. You have experience at a Big 4 audit firm, along with in-house accounting experience at a technology startup. You have experience taking accounting in-house, built and improved internal processes, and worked with auditors to meet annual audit requirements. You have experience with technology-enabled business models and how they translate into accounting concepts and other implications for tax and compliance.

You understand what “best in class” for an accounting function looks like, and have the ambition to execute toward that. You understand how to find and remediate gaps, improve processes, write documentation, and make our reporting airtight.

You have extraordinary attention to detail, the capacity to work under ambiguity, and the ability to execute with strong judgment. You are a clear and excellent communicator, both verbal and written. You can easily translate technical concepts into layman's terms for a broader audience,

You are someone who wants to join a startup that is helping entrepreneurs grow and thrive. The company is growing 10x YoY and you’re someone who can help us continue to successfully drive that growth.

Qualifications

  • CPA
  • Big 4 audit experience
  • 6+ years of progressive experience, with bonus points for experience at a high growth startup (in particular, marketplaces, payments, fintech, or eCommerce)
  • Thorough knowledge of GAAP and internal accounting controls

  • Strong attention to detail with excellent organizational and analytical skills

We look forward to hearing from you!
