You will work directly with the Controller & Senior Accountant in carrying out the responsibilities of the finance department including financial reporting and regulatory compliance. You’ll own our AP and accruals, process invoices, manage T&E expenses, and ensure everything is coded appropriately. You’ll also assist with financial and tax audits, and perform month-end close activities (including reconciliations and rollforwards).
Why You’ll Love This Role:
Within our high-growth company, you will be joining a very tight-knit finance team that is committed to building out a best-in-class operational and analytical function. Your work will help ensure the growth of a business that is transforming the way students learn through customized, engaging reading content.
