About the job
Google accountants are a savvy bunch who handle the core accounting responsibilities at Google. As a member of this team, you know your accounting principles and the full accounting process end to end. You'll advise on financial reports required by governmental regulations, and you'll review, analyze, and interpret financial and budgetary reports -- and all this sounds like fun to you. Every day is a new challenge, and you're continually looking for ways to help our team get better at what we do, in the most efficient way possible. A team player at heart, you collaborate with our global team, advocate best practices and roll up your sleeves to pitch in when it's all hands on deck. You move fast while keeping your attention to detail, and you tap into your problem-solving skills to support Google's business objectives.

We provide financial risk management support across various initiatives, such as pre-launch readiness, post-launch go-to-market, expansion of new products, etc. We have a preference for those who like to work and play hard, and are enthused to work on collaborative global teams, are well-rounded top performers with strong leadership skills, broad financial expertise and have the ability to influence across Google.
The name Google came from "googol," a mathematical term for the number 1 followed by 100 zeros. And nobody at Google loves big numbers like the Finance team when providing in depth analysis on all manner of strategic decisions across Google products. From developing forward-thinking analysis to generating management reports to scaling our automated financial processes, the Finance organization is an important partner and advisor to the business.
Be accountable for accuracy, timeliness, effectiveness, and efficiency of all processes related to controllership for Google Hardware in the APAC region.
Manage key balance sheet accounts, review reconciliations, and investigate variances with support teams.
Assist in preparation of monthly, quarterly, and annual close presentations for accounting and controls management.
Collaborate with global business Finance and Controllership teams to ensure consistency and efficiency.
Work with outsourced providers to review work and implement new initiatives.
