  • Technology and Systems: Manage and optimize our accounting tech stack. Work closely with FP&A to keep our financial systems running, fully integrated, and efficient.
  • Bookkeeping Transitions: Manage the shift from an outsourced bookkeeping team to our in-house crew, making sure it's seamless and effective.
  • Cost Analysis and Optimization: Work closely with FP&A to analyze costs and expenditures to identify areas of inefficiencies
  • Vendor Management: Oversee vendor relationships and manage compliance with company policies.
  • Qualifications

  • Experience:
  • Minimum of 5-7 years of accounting experience, with at least 2-3 years in a Controller or similar leadership role within a high-growth environment.
  • Proven track record in financial reporting, compliance, and implementing financial controls.
