Senior Accountant

Owl Labs’ mission is to solve a problem we’ve all experienced: meetings suck, and they are especially painful for the remote participants on the other side of the call. Considering the rapid growth in remote and distributed work, this is a perfectly timed problem for Owl Labs to solve. The market is hungry for products and content that make remote and distributed work better. 

We are seeking a Senior Accountant as we continue to grow our Accounting and Financing team. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a hypergrowth start-up at an early stage, with the ability to build and implement scalable operating principles and develop a function in-house. As the Senior Accountant you will be responsible for the day-to-day accounting operations and assisting in the preparations of the company's financial statements. This position will report to the Accounting Manager.

 

What You’ll Do

Responsibilities include:

  • Ownership of global revenue recognition across a multi-pronged channel strategy.
  • Conduct day-to-day accounting functions, including A/P and A/R.
  • Develop and implement a scalable invoicing process.
  • Assist with month-end closing activities, including reconciliation preparation for various accounts/processes and journal entries.
  • Support the annual audit process, including preparation of the financial statements, footnotes, disclosures, and accounting memos. 
  • Work directly with the Accounting Manager on a regular basis to ensure GAAP compliance and accounting best practices.
  • Continuously look for opportunities to generate efficiencies and increase the effectiveness of financial operations. 

Career Opportunity:

  • Gain experience in a venture-backed startup and have a direct impact on its success.
  • Bring big ideas, hustle and see the tangible impact of your work.

Qualifications

More than a candidate that checks every box, we’re looking for people who are excited to work, learn, and grow at Owl Labs—no matter their background or how they identify. If that’s you, we hope you’ll apply for this role.

Requirements:

  • Bachelor's degree, or equivalent experience.
  • Clear communication skills on phone, chat, and email.
  • A customer-centric and consultative sales approach.
  • Ability to efficiently prospect and determine the right people to call.
  • Experience in which you consistently met or exceeded a sales quota.
  • Experience using CRM tools to organize and forecast sales opportunities.
  • Ability to pick up on industry terminology quickly and understand the value of the Meeting Owl technology as it compares to our competitors.

The best candidates will have:

  • Track record of high achievement.
  • BA in Accounting or related degree.
  • 3+ years of professional work experience; mix of public and private accounting preferred.
