Job description
  • Job Description:
We have an opening for a highly driven individual who has the drive to knock down big goals and wants to help build an organization rather than simply be a part of one. Imagine that you can leverage your accounting education and experience to leap frog past being a typical Staff Accountant to help create streamlined processes, while building practical leadership skills in a highly successful entrepreneurial environment. This is a highly visible role working with all members of the organization. You'll need to challenge the status quo, and look for innovative ways to improve and automate the accounting functions. Don't be intimidated, we're not looking for someone who's 'been there and done that,' but if you're not ready to learn quickly, clear obstacles out of the way, and tackle multiple projects at the same time, this role is not a good fit for you. If you ARE ready to accelerate through these challenges, punch above your weight class, and bust open your career, then jump on board let's build a company, one that is supremely positioned at the intersection of preparation and opportunity, where the tectonic shifts in Enterprise IT around Global Cloud and BIG data are about to meet.

To be successful you'll need tight alignment with our core values:
*     PERSONAL DRIVE
*     FUN!
*     LEADERSHIP
*     COMMITMENT TO OTHERS
*     CREATIVE RISK TAKING

Required qualifications:
*     Bachelor's degree in accounting or related field
*     1-2 years of related experience
