Pie's mission is to empower small businesses to thrive by making commercial insurance affordable and as easy as pie. We leverage technology to transform how small businesses buy and experience commercial insurance.


Like our small business customers, we are a diverse team of builders, dreamers, and entrepreneurs who are driven by core values and operating principles that guide every decision we make.

As a Senior Accountant I you’ll be primarily responsible for handling Pie’s accounting operations with a roll-up-your-sleeves approach. You’ll interface with fellow Pie-oneers, vendors, partners, and related parties while being accountable for the accurate and timely completion of all assigned tasks. You’ll also have valuable opportunities to help improve existing accounting processes, develop new accounting procedures, implement new financial systems, and take ownership of the company’s financial statements.

How You’ll Do It

  • Participate in the monthly accounting close process. Prepare journal entries, reconciliations, and variance analyses in accordance with U.S. GAAP and internal company policies. Deliver accurate information on time.
  • Assist in the preparation of monthly/quarterly/annual financial statements and footnotes.
  • Maintain and improve the workpapers and processes utilized to close specific accounts over which you will have ownership.
  • Improve existing accounting processes wherever possible with a special focus on effective internal controls.
  • Support year-end financial statement audits as well as quarterly reviews.
  • Partner with the Finance team to analyze historical results and improve information quality.
  • Support key accounting operation functions such as corporate credit card and expense reimbursement processing.
  • Participate in larger projects around (a) automation, (b) system implementation, modification, and integration, and (c) implementation of best practices to drive efficiency in the accounting department.
  • Support other internal teams and external partners with their accounting-related and operational needs.
  • Assist with ad hoc projects and requests as needed.

The Right Stuff

  • Bachelor's Degree in Accounting or Finance required.
  • At least 3 years of relevant public accounting and/or industry experience is required.
  • Prior experience with one of the Big Four or similar audit experience is a plus.
  • Proficiency in U.S. GAAP and the ability to apply technical accounting knowledge to real-world business transactions.
  • Knowledge of Insurance Accounting (ASC 944) is a plus.
  • Extremely high level of attention to detail.  
  • Thorough and detailed documentation skills.
  • Desire and ability to learn and understand the business and accounting rationale behind specific accounts (understanding why you are doing things as opposed to merely following steps).
  • Self-starter and self-motivated to work independently and adapt within a fast-paced environment with competing priorities.
  • Must be able to meet deadlines, such as monthly/quarterly/annual accounting close, external audit deadlines, etc.
  • Ability to work effectively with cross-functional team members.
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills.
  • Strong Excel skills and the ability to work with large data sets are highly preferred.
  • Proficiency in Sage Intacct, Workiva, and Google Suite is preferred.
