  • A solid accounting foundation (knows their debits and credits), and experience with key month-end close responsibilities.
  • Systems savvy is key. Looking for someone who is able to learn new systems quickly.
  • Technical accounting revenue recognition experience is a plus, but not required. Even familiarity/understanding of ASC 606 is a plus.

  • 5+ years of experience in either public accounting and/or corporate accounting at a mid-sized or larger public company
  • CPA and public accounting experience preferred but not required
  • Revenue Recognition accounting experience is always preferred on this team, but not required

  • Detail oriented with strong critical thinking and time management skills; able to manage multiple priorities and deadlines within a very fast-paced environment
