Senior Accountant

New York City, NY, United States

SeatGeek’s finance team is growing fast and we're looking for a motivated Senior Accountant to join the team.

As our Senior Accountant, you have a Big 4 background, but are eager to take on new challenges in a quickly scaling environment with less structure (and more snacks!). It's possible you have a strong passion for music, theater, or sports - or you're eager to help redefine how finance plays a role in the live event and tech industries. Reporting to the Senior Accounting Manager, you'll support our month-end close process, ensure the completeness of income statement and balance sheet accounts following GAAP, perform analysis over complex accounting issues, and manage a staff accountant. 

What you’ll do

  • Build relationships with the sales and partnership teams to ensure accurate accounting over customer contracts
  • Perform monthly close responsibilities, and help design processes that align with our growth
  • Continually learn about current FASB guidance and ASC updates
  • Perform monthly revenue share calculations
  • Partner with external auditors to ensure completion of audit requests
  • Apply GAAP to help prepare and maintain complete and accurate financial reports for a fast-growing contract portfolio
  • Prepare base rent schedules, straight-line rent calculations, and lease abstracts for new leases
  • Perform the daily revenue reconciliation process and review revenue related journal entries
  • Support management to complete special projects and ad-hoc reporting

What's required

  • 4 years in an accounting role, likely at a Big 4, with a CPA being required
  • Knowledge of GAAP with an emphasis on Revenue Recognition requirements
  • An eagerness to contribute to an evolving environment where prioritization is essential
  • Prior management experience
  • Advanced understanding of Microsoft Excel (e.g., v-lookup, sum/ifs, Index/match, pivot tables)
  • Excited to contribute in a teamwork oriented environment and to build and maintain relationships at all levels of the organization

Job Perks

  • A laid-back, fun workplace designed to encourage collaboration and company wide events
  • $120/mo to spend on tickets to live events
  • A superb benefits package, including full health/dental/vision
  • A focus on transparency. We have regular team lunches and Q&A panels where employees can chat openly with teams across SeatGeek, our co-founders, and external guests from the industry
  • Annual subscriptions to Citibike, Spotify, and meditation services
