Job Description

Financial Reporting and Technical Accounting Leader

The Financial Reporting and Technical Accounting Leader will take an ownership role over our internal and external GAAP reporting as well as ensuring that our technical accounting matters are evaluated and positions documented. This leader will be the gatekeeper and source of truth for our GAAP results and will be a primary liaison with our external auditors. This role will lead efforts around private-to-public transition (to SEC Reporting), if and when applicable. Due to the fast-paced and high-growth nature of the Company, the candidate must be detail-oriented, have strong organization and communication skills, and willing to roll up their sleeves as needed.

What you will do:

  • Responsible for internal and external reporting, including but not limited to (as and when applicable), reporting calendar, internal reporting package, board deck, earnings release materials, etc.

  • Preparation of monthly and quarterly financial statements, including the statement of cash flows

  • Investor reporting and covenant compliance

  • Serve as a technical accounting subject matter expert; stay abreast of recent and forthcoming accounting pronouncements that may impact DataStax and lead the implementation

  • Help design and build our internal and external reporting requirements and framework

  • As a subject matter expert, partner with cross-functional business partners such as revenue, sales, service operations, legal, and product teams, in order to ensure completeness and accuracy of our reporting and disclosures

  • Participate in ad hoc projects - this is a constant.

Your experience should include:

  • SEC reporting experience: hands-on ownership over constructing and updating 10-K/10-Q filings, including expert knowledge of XBRL

  • Ownership of SEC reporting calendar and experience managing the process

  • Being well-rounded and resourceful, understanding how to drive initiatives in a timely and professional manner in a fast-paced, high-growth environment.

  • Strong understanding of US GAAP and GAAP reporting

  • Experience completing a disclosure checklist and working with external auditors through their review of financial statements

  • CPA preferred

  • Working for a major accounting firm

  • Technical memo writing

  • Expert-level Excel. Google Docs & Google Sheets a plus

  • Workday Financials a plus

  • Working in a changing and ambiguous environment

  • Managing multiple priorities and tasks in parallel

If this motivates you, we'd love to hear from you! Would you like to join our crew?
