Accounting Project Manager

  • San Francisco, CA
  • Employees can work remotely
  • Full-time

Company Description

Square builds common business tools in unconventional ways so more people can start, run, and grow their businesses. When Square started, it was difficult and expensive (or just plain impossible) for some businesses to take credit cards. Square made credit card payments possible for all by turning a mobile phone into a credit card reader. Since then Square has been building an entire business toolkit of both hardware and software products including Square Capital, Square Terminal, Square Payroll, and more. We’re working to find new and better ways to help businesses succeed on their own terms—and we’re looking for people like you to help shape tomorrow at Square.

Job Description

We are looking for a Project Manager to join the Accounting team. You will manage various work streams including merger and acquisition integrations, transitions to new accounting systems or tools, and the operationalization of new legal entities as Square grows both domestically and internationally. As a newly created role, you will shape its future scope and evolution within our Accounting organization with the potential to build a team in the future. You will report directly to the Accounting Operations Lead based in San Francisco.

You will:

  • Work with our Corporate Development team to understand Square's acquisition pipeline and manage any accounting-related integration work streams;

  • Align newly acquired entities to Square's financial close calendar and accounting policies;
  • Plan how acquired entities will transition from their existing financial systems to Square's (i.e., Oracle Cloud);
  • Help establish roles and responsibilities between our teams--both existing and newly acquired;
  • Create and meet accounting-related project plans to ensure delivery;
  • Assist our Accounting team in documenting our requirements as new projects are scoped and launched;
  • Identify high risk areas through diligence work and support remediation efforts;
  • Strategize with our Accounting leadership on project prioritization and road maps;
  • Collaborate across Square's Finance Business Systems, Tax, Finance & Strategy, and Treasury teams.

Qualifications

  • 6 or more years of experience in accounting with project management responsibilities (i.e., accounting operations, internal audit);
  • A clear understanding of end-to-end accounting processes, specifically around the monthly close process;
  • The ability to lead without authority
  • Experience with mergers and acquisition integrations, or launching operations for new entities/teams;
  • Experience with high growth and its impact on processes and systems;
  • The ability to work independently and resolve problems;
