    • Work closely with European Financial Controller (based in UK) and International controller (based in US) to ensure we are reporting accurate US GAAP results
    • Be a key part of the team to transition of local ERP systems to Workday Financials

About You:

    • You will have the ability to manage and balance multiple deliverables to strict reporting deadlines
    • You will have a strong focus on quality and continuous improvement

    • We appreciate you may not meet all listed criteria above, but if you have the passion and eagerness to learn and grow, we want to hear from you!!
