WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR IN TEAM MEMBERS
Things move fast here - we’re looking for someone that is able to learn quickly on the spot and isn’t afraid to dive into a new topic.
We’re currently building out many new initiatives and programs. You’ll need to quickly ramp up and start executing. We talk a lot about strategy and high-level ideas, and you should be able to independently translate ideas into action, dig into the details, and make progress toward our team’s goals.
You’re someone that geeks out on processes and is a sucker for making sure things stay on track. The goal is to be meticulous enough for quality output but not meticulous to the point of indecision.
Our teams at Signal are small but mighty—we expect team members to work independently, grab the jump ball, and get it past the finish line. Receiving & giving feedback is crucial to accountability. You should be someone that’s comfortable with a culture of continuous feedback.
WHAT YOU HAVE
- 5+ years of professional accounting experience
- Bachelor's degree in Accounting, Finance or related field
- Knowledge of GAAP and internal control framework
