Controller at Domino Data Lab
Reporting to our CFO, the Controller will lead our Accounting function. As you look through the responsibilities below, you will see that we have a philosophical difference in terms of how Accounting should be done here at Domino. We cannot say that we believe the world is going to be model-driven without our teams operating this way as well. Accounting at Domino will be software-driven, robotic-process automation driven, and eventually model-driven. If successful, the Accounting team will be able to automate the close to less than 5 days, minimize the menial tasks that drain the soul of many accounting teams, and eventually free up bandwidth to move towards traditional FP&A reporting activities. We will have the most efficient accounting team, bar none. This is not a role for everyone as it will require you to roll up your sleeves and get things done while also managing a small team. If this intrigues you, come execute with us towards our vision.
