Where others see complexity, we see possibility.

Octagon is the global sports, entertainment and experiential marketing arm of the Interpublic Group. But if that classification doesn't do it for you, and it shouldn't, let's take it a step further.

We are what we believe. And we believe that while the world of sports and entertainment is full of opportunities and possibilities, sometimes the amount of choice can seem a little overwhelming. Even daunting.

That's where we come into play.

At Octagon we inspire brands, talent, and our people to see the world for all its potential. We then help break down the complexity and push forward so you can make your next right move.


  • Bachelor's degree in Business, Finance or Accounting required.

  • 2-3 years of related financial analyst or accounting experience.

  • Microsoft Office: PPT, Word and Excel are table stakes and experience using SAP is a big win.

  • You listen first to ensure you understand, but then quickly move to action.

  • Top notch organization skills and attention to detail are a must-have.

  • We're looking for folks who can effectively communicate their forward-thinking ideas and reporting analysis (to all levels of the organization) either one-on-one, to a group, or over email.

  • We need you to build strong, collaborative/productive relationships with your internal finance peers as well as with your business stakeholder groups.

  • As you might guess, lots of reporting deadlines so we need someone who is able to work efficiently meet target dates and shifting priorities.
