  • Develop and maintain best-in-class cross-functional billing and collection processes and controls; work closely with Sales and Customer Success teams to continuously identify and remediate process inefficiencies in billing and collections. 
  • Partner with Deal Desk to develop processes and controls to identify, track and execute non-standard, complex revenue arrangements and billing, as needed.
  • Lead the implementation and management of billing and collections systems across Netsuite and Salesforce; continuously seek to automate processes where possible.

  • Excellent accounting research and problem solving skills; strong knowledge of both ASC 606 revenue recognition (SaaS and professional services), and ASC 340 (capitalized commissions) required
  • Experience leading global Order-to-Cash financial close and reporting processes
  • Management experience; strong leadership skills with the ability to coach, mentor and develop others, and motivate teams to produce quality work with tight timeframes
  • High attention to detail and a customer service orientation

An Insider's view of Fivetran

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

"Our work-life balance is less about "balance" and more about flowing seamlessly between the two. Everyone understands that to be our best in the workplace we have to embrace our true selves. That means a bike ride or yoga in the middle of the day is a priority so we can deliver great results for our customers, company, colleagues, and ourselves."

Mike Faber

Sales Leader Enablement Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

" I collaborated with other departments on a weekly if not daily basis. Our core value of One Team One Dream ensures that everyone makes decisions that are in the best interest of the organization."
