About Us
Circle is building the world’s leading all-in-one platform for online communities. We make it possible for creators, coaches, educators, and businesses to bring together their audience with engaging discussions, live streams, events, chat, courses, and payments — all in one place, all under their own brand.

We’re proud to be a fully remote company of around 150 (and growing!) team members from 30+ countries around the world. We strive to find exceptional talent, empower them to do their best work, and in turn, have a meaningful impact in their own lives. We don’t track hours, but we manage for outcomes in an a-synchronous culture.

Twice a year, we bring the whole company together for incredible company retreats in beautiful places around the world!

About the role
Circle is laying the groundwork to move aggressively up-market. These new mid-market and enterprise accounts (”MM”) will require more payment flexibility and dedicated care from Circle’s finance team. As the Accounts Receivable (AR) Specialist, you will connect with and nurture customer relationships to ensure our order-to-cash process goes as smoothly as possible.

Since this is a brand-new role, you will have the unique opportunity to design and implement all accounts receivable processes from scratch. This means you will be able to set the foundation and establish best practices that will shape how AR functions within the organization. But don't worry; you will have the rest of our small but mighty finance team to support you every step of the way.

We have a strong preference for candidates in AMER time zones (North or South America).

This role requires bi-lingual fluency in both English and Portuguese.

What you’ll be doing

    • Build the Accounts Receivable function from scratch.
    • Monitor billing process automated by Stripe for small business (SMB) accounts.
    • Process billing for mid-market (MM) accounts.
    • Maintain accounts receivable records to ensure customer accounts are up-to-date.
    • Monitor and act on aged balances and delinquencies, working with customer support to solve delinquent accounts for our SMB customers, and monitoring and collecting accounts receivable for our MM customers directly (proactive & reactive).
    • Monitor renewals for MM accounts.
    • Monitor and act on fraud prevention tactics.
    • Monitor and solve customer disputes.
    • Report on AR metrics.
    • Identify uncollectible accounts for write-off.
    • Support financial month-end closing.
    • Collaborate with cross-function teams, including Sales, Customer Support, and Customer Success.
