Accountants, analysts, and advisors comprise the core of the Finance discipline at Riot, and our work ensures Riot's offices and partners around the world are optimized for strength and speed -- financial and otherwise.

If we're not crunching numbers, you'll find us playing some of the latest games, pursuing our passions or upgrading our knowledge in accounting and finance.

As a Manager, Accounting, you will play an important role in maintaining and developing core financial and operational processes in an evolving environment. You will assist with financial statement preparation, analysis, oversight and validation, and managing project-based initiatives . You'll need to be hands-on, understand accounting processes and a keen ability to collaborate with different teams.

Responsibilities:
• Participate in and direct our monthly, quarterly and annual closing processes
• Review journal entries, account reconciliations, perform trend analysis and validate the accuracy and completeness of financial data
• Perform technical accounting research to assess the accounting impact of complex or new transactions
• Drive process improvements and contribute to exciting accounting transformation projects to streamline and automate processes
• Take on ad-hoc requests and own projects in addition to your daily responsibilities
• Collaborate with other teams within the organization, including finance, HR, IT and other functions within the company
• Develop a strong, performance-oriented accounting organization
• Help manage the external audit, including preparation and ongoing support

Required Qualifications:
• A bachelor's degree in Accounting or Finance
• 7+ years of progressive experience in a senior corporate accounting role (multinational technology or entertainment experience preferred) or public accounting
