Over a million people use Sketch to transform their ideas into incredible products every day. Would you like to join us and help take this growing remote company to the next level? We’re looking for a Senior Accountant to join our Accounting Operations team.
The role
In Accounting Operations, our primary responsibility is to accurately report the financial health of the business. This includes providing accurate and complete data to external constituents such as outside investors and various tax authorities, and internally to various managers and executives, so as to make informed decisions. At the same time, we are actively building out our operations infrastructure with new systems, process and policies – so as to keep friction out of the business and help us scale.
As a Senior Accountant, your focus will be scaling accounting operations, writing and implementing accounting policies in accordance with international financial reporting standards (IFRS), and ensuring financial and tax compliance.
The challenge
2022 is going to be another very exciting year at Sketch. Our business and team are growing fast and there is a huge amount of opportunity.
In the coming months, we’ll launch major new features, improve our internal processes and incorporate new tools and technology, giving our customers (external and internal) the level of service they deserve. This is a great opportunity for someone looking for a new adventure — as well as personal and professional development.
We are a remote company, which has plenty of advantages — though it can be a challenge to keep up with our rhythm. Don’t worry though — we’ll help you, and you’ll feel like an integral part of the team in no time.
What you will do
– Develop a complete understanding of our business model, accounting procedures and processes within the first 30 days
– Master our internal processes and become the subject matter expert for queries and concerns
– Develop and adhere to our accounting policies
– Support compliance and tax filings for our Dutch parent company and international subsidiaries
– Prepare and review schedules for the external annual audit
– Identify and improve system efficiencies within our financial system of record, Netsuite
About Sketch
Sketch is a 100% remote company, and your colleagues are distributed around the globe. Being remote adds great flexibility, and helps us build a more diverse team.
