This position will provide support to cross-functional business partners as follows:

  • Business owners - Embedded resource that understands the nature of the business being supported and owns finance related tasks (end to end P2P support for setting up new vendors, reviewing contracts, creating POs, reviewing invoices, vendor management, expense reporting, etc.)
  • Accounts Payable - Create POs where applicable and provide non-PO invoice coding to enable timely and accurate invoice processing and accurate financial reporting
  • Accounting - Drive an accurate and timely month-end close by owning the accrual process and explaining variance drivers
  • FP&A - Ensure accurate coding to provide meaningful reporting, track actuals to budget, communicate any expected variances and identify opportunities to use data to drive business decisions
  • IT - Design reporting metrics around localization/post production workflows and partner on system enhancements to help automate workflows to scale

Qualities We’re Looking For:

  • 5-7 years of relevant Finance and/or Accounting experience with the general ledger since the work you do will have direct financial implications

  • Relationship builder - Ability to cultivate strong cross functional relationships and communicate effectively with team members and business partners
  • Experience with purchase orders, as you will deal with these on day 1 and look for ways to optimize the workflows
  • Innovation - Enthusiasm for improving and enhancing systems and workflows (learn the existing process and then build/challenge it to better scale for growth while providing meaningful reporting to our business partners)
  • Curiosity and passion - Our team members ask probing questions, challenge the status quo, make changes to improve processes, and have fun while doing it; having a positive attitude and never settling for “good enough” are key
  • ERP systems experience - experience with Workday Financials or other cloud based ERP systems is a plus
  • Adaptable - You are comfortable in an ever-changing ecosystem of content, finance and accounting issues and projects
  • Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting or Finance; MBA and/or CPA a plus
