Remote
Employment: Full Time Experience: Mid-Level

We're a team of 100+ people living and working remotely in 15+ countries. We're working hard to build a diverse and collaborative team that can empathize with each other to solve hard problems and build a product we can be proud of. For the past six years, Zapier has been helping people across the world automate the boring and tedious parts of their job. We do that by helping everyone connect the web applications they already use and love.

We get together 2-3 times per year for a company retreat, and benefits include great healthcare, dental and vision coverage, 401k retirement plan with company match, profit sharing and 14 weeks paid leave for new parents.

Hi there! We're looking for an accountant to assist with monthly accounting and finance activities and help ensure Zapier meets compliance in any state where our 100% remote team currently has employees. If that sounds interesting, read on…

Even though our job description may seem like we're looking for a specific candidate, the role inevitably ends up tailored to the person who applies and joins. Regardless of how well you feel you fit our description, we encourage you to apply if you meet these criteria:

You’re an eager learner and really enjoy solving puzzles. You’re a lifelong student of the accounting process and enjoy exploring process improvement. You’re well organized and detail-oriented while also possessing the ability to see the bigger picture. You like to roll up your sleeves and get things done.

About You

You have at least two years of accounting experience under your belt. This isn't your first rodeo. You likely won't have dealt with everything you'll encounter at Zapier, but you have a background of experiences that guide your decision making and you can use that to make smart decisions.

You are willing to take on any task. Zapier is a fast growing and nimble team. You'll be part of an accounting team of three working alongside our CFO and our Tax Accountant. You're eager to take on any project that comes your way no matter how big or how small.

You have strong organizational and communication skills. You'll be responsible for multiple projects and tasks at a given time and can keep these organized and prioritized to ensure work gets done and logged. You like to get things done.

You're resourceful. When you encounter a task you haven't done before, you know how to use Google, your network, your teammates knowledge and whatever other resources available to find a good path forward.

You are detailed-oriented. You love getting into the nitty-gritty, but also have the ability to take a step back and see the bigger picture.

Things You Might Do

Zapier is a small, fast-growing, and remote-first company, so you'll likely get experience on many different projects across the organization. That said, here are some things you'll probably do:

Assist with monthly accounting and bookkeeping (expense categorization and classification, reconciling accounts, monthly journal entries, etc.)

Help maintain compliance in each state Zapier has nexus (registrations, annual reports, franchise tax, sales tax) and keep up to date on all the new laws.

Help maintain the equipment purchasing process along with the fixed asset system.

Assist with additional accounting duties where needed such as the deferred revenue calculation, employee reimbursements, wires and payments.

As part of our All Hands Support initiative, help customers have the best experience with Zapier as possible.
