We unite Elasticians across 30+ countries (and counting!), 18 timezones, and 30 different languages into one coherent team, while the broader community spans across over 100 countries.

Our Accounting team is seeking a Revenue Accountant to join the small, high functioning Revenue team. This opportunity is ideal for someone who is looking for a broad range of revenue responsibilities within a fast-growing technology company. This role will be distributed in North America.

  • Review Software and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) sales contracts for compliance and revenue implications under ASC 606
  • Lead the month-end revenue close processes by validating accruals, preparing revenue account reconciliations, journal entries, conducting fluctuation analyses and reporting disclosures
  • Provide insight on the appropriate revenue recognition for large or complex contracts with customers
  • Draft, update, or maintain revenue accounting memos including write-ups on large and complex deals
  • Maintain and improve internal control documentation and assist with revenue and AR process development and SOX compliance

What You Bring Along:

Ours is a fast-paced, high-growth, global environment. The ideal candidate will have 4+ years of professional experience in revenue accounting at a technology company. You communicate at a high level, you have strong analytical and problem-solving skills, and you enjoy building efficient processes.

If that’s you, hopefully, you also have:

  • Degree and a CPA qualification
  • Extremely high proficiency with Excel and Google Sheets and excellent data modeling skills

  • Presentation abilities and the desire to grow them
  • Ability to work independently in a distributed, dynamic, fast-paced environment
