We aim to build infrastructure that keeps pace with the world, so developers can focus on what matters most: building the best products. Join us on our mission to Make Data Easy. Are you ready to aim high and build to last?

About the Role

We are hiring a Senior Accountant to help us scale our finance and accounting operations. You have a proven track record of working collaboratively with different business teams, implementing scalable and efficient solutions to meet our business needs.

The ideal candidate for this role has a positive hands-on attitude and will develop strong working relationships with cross-functional partners to keep the business ahead of emerging accounting issues. You must be located in NYC for this role.

You Will
  • Execute the monthly and annual financial close, including account reconciliations, entering journal entries, and maintaining accurate records and files
  • Perform a detailed review of expense accounts for proper accruals, coding and accounting and will investigate reporting discrepancies / anomalies and communicate issues as they arise in a timely manner.
  • Contribute to existing processes, structures, and systems to assist in the identification of improvement opportunities with a focus on simplification, standardization and optimization, especially the reduction of manual, Excel-based activities.
  • Continually develop, expand and improve month end close and financial reporting procedures and help drive the reduction of the close timeline by assessing and streamlining close-related activities.
  • Support the year-end financial statement audit, as well as any statutory audits that may arise.

After 3 months, you'll be integrated into the team and will be a hands on contributor to the Company's day-to-day operations and month end close procedures, working closely with the Accounting Manager.

After 6 months, you will complete the functions of the staff accountant with limited supervision and will help continuously shape best-in-class processes and procedures as the team continues their pursuit of excellence!   

You Have
  • 2-3 years of relevant accounting experience, specifically at a SaaS company
  • A passion for detail and can operate in a fast paced, deadline driven environment
