Mojang Studios is best known as the creators of Minecraft, but we’re also on a mission – to build a better world through the power of play.
Why play? Well, play is at the heart of everything we do. It’s the blocky backbone of our games, the core of our development philosophy, and even the origin of our name. From the relentless experimentation of our endlessly inspiring community to the classrooms where Minecraft has become an essential teaching tool, play is the bedrock of our existence.
We’re looking for an Accounting Manager that will team up with our Finance Director and steer the financial accounting agenda. You’ll be joining a small team consisting of a Finance Director and three financial accountants, the team works closely with our colleagues overseas as well as external partners.

Does this sound as a fun challenge for you?
What you will be doing:
The person we are looking for will play an integral part in the Finance department with responsibility for managing and overseeing the daily operations, including monthly- and annual closings. In the closing process, you´ll have the overall responsibility for the reconciliations, perform necessary variance analysis and quality control. Further on, you’ll prepare and review financial reporting, both internal and external, and be the go-to person regarding accounting.
To be successful in this role you should be able to work towards strict deadline but still enjoy being part of a fun team. You will take ownership of this role taking the accounting “from A to Z”. You should be passionate about teamwork and contributing to a pleasant work environment, where the team is motivated and enjoy coming to work every day.

- Ability to be flexible and work outside of normal working hours, since meetings with the Redmond office may occur on evenings and due to peaks around month end close.
Solid experience in accounting is imperative, but to succeed as an Accounting manager you will also need great interpersonal skills. To succeed in this role we believe that you are analytical, have a strong ability to take action and takes it upon yourself to find solutions to any situation coming your way. You’re prestigeless, flexible and responds well to unexpected demands, since you’ll be joining a small team and collaborate with our Redmond office in another time-zone.
