  • Contribute to a library of process and internal control documentation

The Senior Accountant will demonstrate: 

  • Ability to effectively organize, prioritize, and perform multiple tasks with varying deadlines simultaneously and under time constraints
  • Ability and desire to roll up your sleeves and be hands-on in an entrepreneurial fast-paced environment; you’re a self-starter who loves wearing different hats and have an enthusiastic spirit that no job is too big or too small
  • Excellent follow up skills
  • Strong accounting US GAAP knowledge, familiarity with GL software and financial statements (Meetup uses Intacct and Certify for our GL and AP software)
  • Extremely organized with strong attention to detail
  • Excellent Excel skills, proficient in MS Office

What does your typical day look like?

As an engineer at Meetup, my mission is to build things that help product teams focus on our users and develop our product faster and with better quality. My team mob programs or pair programs by default, which works great for us because it increases code and architecture, knowledge sharing, focus, productivity and team bonding.
