*Job Description*
We are looking for a bright, hard-working individual to help the Financial Accounting team manage valuation and accounting for the world’s largest portfolio of early-stage investments.

This role forms a foundational part of Belltower - AngelList’s financial accounting team. The Belltower team is focused on building and executing the systems and software that allow AngelList to host the world's largest portfolio of early stage investments.

While the majority of the Belltower team is based in Seattle, this role is intended to be remote and works with the Director of Financial Accounting, who is also remote.

The financial accounting associate role is for high achievers who are willing to get their hands dirty. The role is intense and rewarding: you will perform accounting and valuation work for a very large number of investments in early-stage companies and will come away with a deep and practical understanding of venture finance.

*What You'll Do*
• Evaluate portfolio company events and data, and determine the appropriate valuation action for each investment.
• Help prepare both audited and unaudited financial statements.
• Ensure that accounting treatment for portfolio company investments are in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and evaluate special situations.
• Maintain the investment tracking system so that it remains accurate and up-to-date.

The strongest candidates will have:
• Demonstrated operational excellence either in audit or in the financial sector and have a superb academic track record.
• The ability to communicate effectively with portfolio companies and lead investors with polished professionalism.
• Superb attention to detail -- you need to be able to catch the corner case every time.
• Exceptional organizational skills and a love of process. We oversee a portfolio of investments in the thousands which can only be managed systematically.
• Willingness to get your hands dirty: good data usually takes hard work and determination.
• Understanding of core financial concepts and a strong interest in the nuts and bolts of venture finance. Your day-to-day will touch on the legal, accounting, tax, and finance components that underlie the venture financing ecosystem.
• Great attitude with the ability to embrace regular change as we continually improve products and process.

Extremely competitive based on experience.
