About You:

We are looking for a team player to join our group, someone who can work collaboratively with cross-functional teams. A Degree in Accounting or Finance with 5+ years overall accounting experience, with revenue accounting experience preferred. If you describe yourself as analytical, highly detail-oriented, organized, self-motivated, and committed to a high level of accuracy, then we encourage you to apply! Additional role requirements include:

Meet your future team:

This role reports to the Director, Accounting and works directly with the other members of the close-knit finance and accounting team. While a small team of 7, you will join a group of passionate individuals who enjoy working with one another. Led by the CFO, the broader group is also comprised of Financial Reporting and Internal Controls, Equity and Payroll, Procurement, FP&A and Strategic Sourcing, IT, Investor Relations, Corporate Communications, Facility Operations, and Program Management.

Currently, we have team members in both hybrid and remote capacities, so we will not require you to be local to our Cambridge, MA office. Although in a partially virtual environment, the Accounting team has made it a priority to continue to foster a sense of community among the group. You can expect to join a passionate, hardworking, and collaborative environment.
