Accounting Manager

San Francisco /
Operations /
Retool is growing quickly, and our finances are getting substantially more complicated. We’re excited to hire the first ever Accounting Manager to help build, and bring more rigor, to our accounting processes. Today these responsibilities (accounting, AR, AP, etc.) are handled by a few separate people, but we’re looking to consolidate it all into one person—you!

As  the first hire in this role you’ll help us build rigorous and sustainable accounting practices, and a world class accounting team. With your past accounting experience at SaaS companies you’ll help us plan and perform monthly and quarterly close activities, including balance sheet reconciliations, variance analyses and analytical reviews. You’ll also take on our accounts payable and receivable operations. You'll own financial reporting, automation, and advise on accounting implications. We will need your help to implement Netsuite, and a billing platform. 

Retool is still small and we’re looking for someone who is excited to wear many hats and jump in wherever is needed. This means each day will be a little different and we’ll look to you to juggle a variety of projects and responsibilities.

You’ll work closely with Retool’s CEO and Head of Operations. You will also work cross-functionally across all teams at Retool to report on our financials and and help us implement strong accounting processes.
