The Senior Account is responsible for delivering accurate and timely reporting of the balance sheet and income statement line items, for both internal and external stakeholders. In a time where our business is undergoing a transformation to scale to a billion-dollar SaaS operation, we are committed to achieving a balance between re-accelerating our revenue growth and maintaining profitability.

The Senior Accountant is expected to work effectively with team members within Accounting and across departments to effect changes and complete special projects required as part of company-wide goals and objectives.
