  • Perform benchmarking research of peer companies on financial disclosure and other information as needed.

  • Lead and train junior staff on specific projects as and when required.
  • Interact with external auditors in completing the quarterly reviews and annual audits of the SEC financials and other filings.
  • Maintain documentation supporting SOX compliance.

Your qualifications are: 

  • 5+ years of progressive accounting experience.
  • Active CPA license preferred, but not expressly required.
  • Big 4 or other large public accounting firm experience required.
  • Familiarity with technical accounting standards, coupled with an ability to independently research, document, and conclude on a variety of technical accounting topics.
  • Previous experience writing robust technical memorandums is a big plus.
  • Willingness to learn quickly and adapt to a high growth environment.
  • Extremely strong written and verbal communication skills.
  • Confident and polished interpersonal skills with willingness to engage with and present results to senior management and inter-departmental leaders.
