What You’ll Be Doing

  • Month/Quarter end close - calculate and record journal entries, question unexpected activity or amounts, coordinate and communicate with partners.
  • Reconciliations & Analysis – complete standard reconciliations by understanding the underlying account activity, and researching / resolving unusual or aged transactions.
  • Reporting - documenting reasons for balance sheet variances and updating quarterly summary schedules.

  • 1-2 years related general accounting experience.
  • Strong analytical skills, detail-oriented, self-starter and ability to multi-task.

Personality Traits

  • You work well under pressure and have strong attention to detail
  • Someone who is self-driven and someone who really wants to dig deep into their accounts

Bonus Points

  • Experience with variance analysis not just reconciliations.

Overtime Expectations

  • Quarter ends may require one Saturday to support a timely close process.
