    • Proficiency in GSuite, Office, and accounting and ERP tools (Quickbooks, Netsuite, Bill.com, etc.)
    • Experience performing a significant portion or all of quarterly and yearly closes.
    • Experience handling tight deadlines across multiple projects simultaneously, with an eye for detail and accuracy.
    • Ability to manage conflict and build strong working relationships across all levels of personnel.
    • Ability to balance multiple high priorities and lead several time-sensitive projects at once in a fast-paced environment with minimal direction.
    • Strong analytical skills and a creative, collaborative approach to problem-solving.
    • Familiarity with SQL a plus.
