Staff Accountant at PillPack
Boston, MA, US
We are looking to build our bench of accounting professionals to add depth to our Finance team. Our department translates transactional information into usable data, establishes controls, facilitates external audits, and prepares reports of financial information for internal and external use. We’re looking for people committed to managing PillPack’s financial health, while navigating through the typical challenges of a rapidly growing start-up. To be successful here, you’ll need to be entrepreneurial about taking initiative, but structured about details and deadlines. You’ll also need to be a good communicator of financial information to non-finance professionals.
You’re going to own the day-to-day transactional accounting for the company, and you’re going to make sure it’s right, the first time. You don’t mind getting into the details to solve an accounting mystery when a balance just doesn’t add up, and you also enjoy researching accounting principles to determine the right way to record a transaction. You’ve put in your dues at a public accounting firm and you’re ready for your next challenge. And that challenge will be to understand our all of our operations and our systems, and implement the tools we need to make our accounting better, faster, stronger.
