About the Role

We are seeking a highly experienced and detail-oriented Accounting Manager to join our team. This role is pivotal to ensuring the robustness of our financial infrastructure, optimizing processes, and providing accurate and timely financial data. As the Accounting Manager, you will play a critical role in supporting high-level finance work, including infrastructure, tech stack, process optimizations, data and insights, compensation plans, corporate entity work, and tax planning.

Financial Close Processes: The Accounting Manager will be responsible for ensuring that the books are accurately closed by the fifth business day following each month's end, and implementing a weekly soft close process for thorough review.

This includes preparing and submitting monthly HST filings and effectively coordinating with our external tax advisors on year-end financial statements and tax filings, as well as handling ad hoc external compliance requests. Success in this aspect of the role will be gauged by the accuracy and timeliness of tax preparation and filings, as well as the timeliness of addressing compliance requests.
  5. Process Improvement and Optimization: The Accounting Manager will identify and implement process improvements and automation within the department. Their success will be measured by the systems and processes put in place that will save both the Finance team and other stakeholders time.
