Sound like you? Read on.

Your contribution
  • As a member of a team of about four people, you will be ready to perform all of the following duties when needed, however your manager will assign you as the primary on a subset of these functions, and then rotate assignments among the team periodically.
  • Sets up new awards in the ERP to ensure that revenue will be recognized in accordance with GAAP, including ASC 606 and ASC958, and that all reporting attributes are populated correctly.
  • Verifies that revenue, billed and unbilled AR, and refundable advances are stated correctly in the general ledger by reviewing donor report reconciliations that are prepared by another team.
  • Reconciles general ledger accounts and ties to subledgers at monthly close.
  • Records accounts receivable, cash receipts, retainers, contributions, pledges receivable, and revenue for milestone and pay-for-performance based awards.
  • Tracks pending project close-outs and coordinates their completion.
  • Collaborates with other Finance team members and with Program Management Teams to ensure we get the right data to the right people at the right time.
  • Supports the annual audit and program audits.
  • Performs other duties and special projects as assigned.

Trust: You accept limits to your sphere of control and give colleagues the benefit of the doubt
