  • Job Description:
We have an opening for a highly driven individual who has the drive to knock down big goals and wants to help build an organization rather than simply be a part of one. Imagine that you can leverage your accounting education and experience to leap frog past being a typical Staff Accountant to help create streamlined processes, while building practical leadership skills in a highly successful entrepreneurial environment. This is a highly visible role working with all members of the organization. You'll need to challenge the status quo, and look for innovative ways to improve and automate the accounting functions. Don't be intimidated, we're not looking for someone who's 'been there and done that,' but if you're not ready to learn quickly, clear obstacles out of the way, and tackle multiple projects at the same time, this role is not a good fit for you. If you ARE ready to accelerate through these challenges, punch above your weight class, and bust open your career, then jump on board let's build a company, one that is supremely positioned at the intersection of preparation and opportunity, where the tectonic shifts in Enterprise IT around Global Cloud and BIG data are about to meet.

As a key member of our superstar team you will:

*     Assist in the monthly closing process including preparation of journal entries, account analysis and reconciliations
*     Monthly bank reconciliations
*     Assist with monthly billing
*     Apply customer payments
*     Apply vendor payments
*     Identify process improvements
*     Assist with budgeting & forecasting
*     Maintain cash tracking tool
*     Review employee expense reports, confirming proper documentation & in compliance with the company policy
*     Assist with sales & use tax registrations
*     Assist with preparation of information for tax filings
*     Assist with creating an accounting manual
*     Assist with process and procedure documentation
*     Support external audits and provide ad-hoc reporting and analysis as required

To be successful you'll need tight alignment with our core values:
*     FUN!

Required qualifications:
*     Bachelor's degree in accounting or related field
*     1-2 years of related experience
*     Proficient in MS Office (especially Excel)
*     Strong attention to detail
*     Ability to manage multiple projects, to prioritize, and to meet deadlines in a fast-paced environment, and        to work independently
*     Excellent business communication and analytical skills
*     Knowledge of Intacct financial accounting platform would be helpful
*     Salesforce experience is a plus

We are an equal opportunity employer and make hiring decisions based on merit. Recruitment, hiring, training, and job assignments are made without regard to race, color, national origin, age, ancestry, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, marital status, disability, or any other protected classification.
