  • Respond to technical accounting inquiries from auditors and communicate technical accounting matters and concepts to all levels within the organization
  • Assist in the assessment and review of financial controls established over technical accounting areas
  • Supervise at least one direct report and potentially more in the future 


  • 5+ years of accounting experience
  • 1-2 years of hands-on experience with ASC 606, revenue reviews, Netsuite billing and ARM
  • Experience managing others to ensure transactional processing is accurate and complete
  • Well-versed in revenue contracts review, documentation of revenue checklists, and providing support for financial statement audits
  • Experience using Salesforce (not required but a plus)
  • Ability to identify and prioritize issues that impact revenue reporting, investigate, evaluate and come up with alternate solutions, present pros/cons to management for decision and help to execute through to the resolution.
