We are expanding our Revenue Accounting team and looking to bring on our first Revenue Accounting Manager who is excited to roll up their sleeves and help build and develop scalable revenue recognition and month-end close processes.  

The Revenue Accounting Manager will work cross-functionally to understand the Company’s non-routine revenue contracts and new product offerings.  This person will leverage their familiarity with ASC 606, to quickly identify the accounting implications of proposed contract terms, and operationalize the accounting without slowing down the business or our month-end close processes.

The ideal candidate will have a mixture of public accounting and industry experience, specifically in advertising or digital media/entertainment, and be able to operate in a fast growth environment.  This person is a self-starter who is organized, highly analytical, collaborative and a problem solver.  If you are interested in continuing your career in an exciting and high growth company, then this is the role for you!
