In this Project Accountant role, you will be an integral part of the Finance & Accounting team, responsible for tracking, analyzing, and reporting project financial status. This position ensures that procedures and policies are in place to fulfill all contractual financial obligations, facilitate effective and efficient financial reporting, and ensure compliance with local, state, and corporate policies. It is integral that you maintain a clear understanding of revenue recognition, project invoicing, journal entry preparation, and general accounting rules. You will support both management and clients by communicating financial insights and reporting on the performance of assigned projects in a way that non-financial team members can understand. In this role, you will also direct fiscal operations relating to financial planning, funds management, accounting, reporting, and disbarment.
In this role you will:
• Perform month-end closing activities
• Process payroll, accounts payable, and prepare accounts receivable invoices to customers
• Prepare and maintain budgets, forecasts, and cash flows across multiple funding streams and communicate the contract’s financial position
• Administer supplier contract terms, verify compliance, and review payments
• Prepare financial performance reviews and maintain project financial data
You are a self-motivated and flexible team player. You consider yourself to have strong organizational, interpersonal, and communication skills. You’re driven and action-oriented and are comfortable multitasking and meeting multiple, tight deadlines. You take pride in your ability to recognize and solve problems as they arise especially in regard to business practices, quality, and internal controls. You have a bachelor’s degree or higher in a related field and 3+ years of working in an accounting role and are ready to make an impact.
Want to stick out above the rest? We’d be blown away if you have previous experience with cost accounting, government fund accounting, or Oracle.
