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.

In this role, you will execute our code based monthly accounting operations and implement opportunities to optimize our operations through programmatic automations. You will contribute excellent attention to detail and the ability to work well with other teams, provide outstanding customer service, and deliver on deadlines.
