Posted 2 weeks ago

Amazon is a fast-paced, dynamic, high-tech company based in Seattle. Amazon's finance team is searching for financial accounting professionals who consistently exceed expectations, who thrive in a challenging workplace, and who can actively contribute to our talented team. The global accounting organization supports our financial reporting, internal control, intercompany, and transfer pricing activities as well as supports new business launches globally for Amazon in the consumer products, digital initiatives, merchant, operations, logistics, payments, and cloud computing lines of business.

Additionally, we strongly encourage rotation within the Accounting department and the company as a whole; we aim to hire people who will raise the bar, not just in their first position, but over their career at Amazon. Given the size and growth of the Accounting department and rotation to other Amazon departments, we are always looking for strong candidates to fill new positions and back-fill existing ones.

Responsibilities

This position will have responsibility for supporting all parts of our financial reporting process. In addition, this position will be expected to understand internal control design concepts sufficient to assess the effectiveness of controls in their area and to influence the design of systems, processes and controls for emerging and growing business activities.

Technical accounting research and position paper writing will also be a requirement of this position. Candidates will be expected to demonstrate they were top performers at their level.

We are currently looking for candidates who are at the senior manager level. Successful candidates for this position will have the equivalent of 9+ years of professional experience with financial reporting and internal control related responsibilities.

Many of our candidates for this position will also have held similar positions in larger public companies or who have held a senior manager level position with a Big 4 public accounting firm serving Fortune 500 clients for 2 or more years. Candidates for this position may have held controller or finance director positions in public or private companies. Demonstrated experience in leading teams to accomplish unusually complex challenges will be expected as this is an ongoing requirement for this position.

Amazon's accounting group offers opportunities in Legal Entity & Intercompany, Accounting Policy & Reporting, Operations and Capital, Transportation, Payments & Merchant Services, Retail Operations, Digital, and AWS Accounting.

We take pride in our single-minded obsession over customer satisfaction and our ability to maintain a curious and vibrant culture no matter how large the company grows. We endeavor to build our legacy as Earth's most customer-centric company and to continue to cultivate and nourish our innovative environment through our mission to hire the best. If you are a financial accounting professional who consistently exceeds expectations, who dares to make bold decisions, and whose ears perk up at the prospect of a challenge, then Amazon is a place where your career can flourish. When working at Amazon, your ability to make a difference and take ownership of your career begins on day one. You can expect a collaborative, team-driven environment that encourages employees to learn, be curious, and have a bias for action. Part of this propensity for continuous learning shows itself in Amazon's strong encouragement of rotation within the Accounting department and within the company as a whole. We aim to hire and develop those who will raise the bar over the course of their career at Amazon (and not just in their first position). Given this encouragement for rotation, and given our company's ever-increasing growth, we are always looking for strong candidates to fill new positions and backfill existing ones.
