Some of your contributions will include:

  • Participating in financial close activities including preparing journal entries, account reconciliations, and bank reconciliations.

  • Managing the company credit card program including importing expenses into the accounting system.
  • Overseeing accounts payable duties (including monitoring approvals and contract management).
  • Identifying ways to improve processes, implementing best practices to help us scale as we grow.
  • Year end compliance includes issuing 1099s.
  • Assisting with the annual financial statement audit.
  • Maintaining a positive relationship and open communication with other departments.
  • Assisting our amazing Drip team with any special projects as needed. As we are a growing startup, you will be able to grow and define this role in a way that aligns with your strengths and interests.

What You’ve Done:

  • You have a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting or a related field.
  • You have 1 - 4 years of accounting experience.

  • Above everything else, you are a problem solver, not a problem creator. When questions crop up you have the answers and will dig deep to find them when you’re not 100% sure. You are not afraid to make a decision and will take full responsibility if the decision ends up being the wrong one.
  • Did we mention that you must be detail oriented?  :)
