·        Provide support for the annual financial statement audit, as well as periodic internal audits
·        Support deal negotiations by providing input on transaction structures to align contract terms and business objectives, as well as reviewing significant revenue related agreements to guide the appropriate accounting
·        Develop the Revenue Accounting team, and support their growth and professional development
·        Provide support for other ad hoc analyses and projects as needed
This is what you’ll need:
·        Bachelor’s degree, or higher; CPA preferred
