Accountant

Remote - Philadelphia, PA

Job Description

HiringThing is looking for a fully remote full-cycle accountant with at least 2 years of experience in most of the following areas: accounts payable/receivable, general ledger, and sales tax. Experience with QuickBooks is preferred and advanced Excel skills are a must (you can do pivot tables and formulas in your sleep with your hands tied behind your back).  

We have a recurring revenue model, so experience with recurring revenue, deferred revenue recognition, and US GAAP rules on recognition of software revenue is a big plus. You will be part of a small team, consisting of an Accounting Manager and an HR Generalist. This position reports to the Accounting Manager. As a small team, we all wear multiple hats, which presents a lot of opportunities to learn and grow, while ensuring that the day-to-day is interesting and varied. 

Who we are

HiringThing is a cloud-based software company that helps businesses post jobs online, manage applicants and hire great employees. We were founded in 2012 with the mission to deliver intuitive, easy-to-use recruiting software across multiple sales channels and product types, and we are growing rapidly! Our team has been fully remote since the inception of our company.  

HiringThing operates in a flexible environment where employees can be hands-on in helping build a growing company. This is a remote position, so team members will thrive in a work-from-home (or anywhere) environment. Our team stays connected through daily communication and regular video calls.

Who you will be working with

You will work closely and collaboratively with our finance team, reporting directly to our Accounting Manager. The team works hand in hand with every department in the company to create the strongest offerings in hiring technology.

Responsibilities

These responsibilities are shared across the department. You will be cross-trained in all areas, but will have an opportunity to take ownership of specific areas.
