The Staff Accountant is responsible for ensuring that teams’ expenses are properly recorded as part of our accounting close process. This entails running reports in Concur (our expense management system), calculating accruals, and following up with teams to ensure proper expense coding to projects. This role will also be an inherent part of the expense review and approval process that precedes the closing of the books. In addition, you will be responsible for the cash disbursement process, making payments through wires and ACH payments.
As the specialist for this area, you will own the tools through which expense management and cash disbursements occur. Ensuring user-friendliness for our users and improving the process that Concur supports will be the goal, along with building proficiency maintaining a relationship with our banking contacts. While we do not consider project management as a prerequisite for the role, there will be opportunities to hone these skills as a result.
Lastly, since a large part of our business is project-based, expenses are not the only important part of our expense management process. Timekeeping and resulting labor expense management is equally critical, and we have consolidated some components of that process into the scope of this role. This specifically means you will also be keeping an eye on proper timekeeping, as coding time to the right project is equally important as it is for other expenses. You will be working closely with the project accounting manager and the payroll team for that.
Along with progress, we envision this entry level position to evolve into helping out in other areas of accounting too. We are expecting you to grow with us, and enable you to round out your experience to move onto the start of an awesome career in our finance team! This role is an individual contributor role and reports into the accounting manager.
