Let’s get into the details:

Accounting isn’t your typical month-end close type of department. While the heart of our day-to-day work is providing financial information to the business, that’s only the tip of the iceberg. We’re building out financial systems to support every new business line and product, so our Accounting team gets a granular view and understanding of how a business is crafted from the ground up. The knowledge to gain is vast, as is the potential of our organization to continue growing.

The Corporate Accounting team is responsible for assessing the accounting treatment for material transactions across the company as well as identifying processes that can be standardized and streamlined.

You’ll spend your time on the following:

  • Working closely with the Corporate M&A, Finance and Treasury teams on understanding accounting implications of terms and conditions of investments and business combination arrangements, along with other significant transactions and initiatives across the Company

  • Researching technical accounting issues to ensure compliance with Company policy and GAAP guidance on various areas including goodwill, investments, leases, share-based compensation, revenue recognition, gross versus net revenue presentation, foreign currency and other matters and prepare related white-paper documentation

  • Facilitating/coordinating the process of implementing new standards and accounting changes to ensure the Company is prepared to comply at the necessary time

  • Executing month end close activities relating to share-based compensation, investment valuation, and execution of estimation models relating to refunds and variable consideration under ASC 606, among others

  • Evaluating and estimating significant reserves for the Company (e.g. Legal, Refunds and Variable Consideration under ASC 606), including working with the necessary teams to gather operational data to execute the models, and verify that the methodology used in the models are appropriate for new business initiatives and practices

  • Assisting with ad-hoc questions raised from the business to assess the relevant accounting implications

  • Leading and growing others; remain aware of each person's career goals; hold development discussions; and provide meaningful tasks and assignments to promote development.
