Assistant Controller – remote
Fast-growing, well-funded technology company is seeking an Assistant Controller for a temporary (2-to-3 month) contract role. This will be a remote position in which this person will work from a home office while communicating frequently with other team members, including the Controller, VP of Finance, and accounting staff. There is a possibility of this person becoming a permanent employee in the future (although not guaranteed).
The ideal candidate will have previous experience in a “work-from-home” situation in which communication, accountability, and creative problem solving are imperative.
Reporting to the Controller, this position will be responsible for providing guidance to the Accounting team (7 staff) while playing a key role in month end close, preparation of GAAP-based financial statements, oversight of Internal Controls and accounting processes, and completing the external audit. Additional duties will include assisting with the integration of a newly-acquired company, oversight of AP, AR, Billing, and Payroll, and providing technical guidance as needed. The Assistant Controller will serve as an effective business partner to many departments throughout the company, while working effectively with the Executive team and other key stakeholders.
Qualified candidates should have seven or more (7+) years of Accounting experience, including at least two (2) years in a supervisory role. Bachelor’s degree in Accounting is required, and CPA is preferred but not required. This individual must have proven team leadership experience, along with outstanding communication and skills.
Compensation will be based on experience, and will include a competitive hourly rate, plus an agreed-upon completion bonus. Candidates should be available for virtual interviews on 3/19 and 3/20, with a target start date of Tuesday, 3/24.
