Instawork is a gig-economy marketplace for blue-collar workers. We've changed the way traditional recruiting works for small businesses (e.g. a sign on the window) by turning the process into an automated matching problem. Our vision is to organize the world's labor force and make it as accessible to local businesses as tap water. We're growing rapidly and are expanding across the US.
We’ve been fortunate to be funded by some of the greatest investors in Silicon Valley: Benchmark (Bill Gurley), Spark Capital (Nabeel Hyatt), Y-Combinator, SV Angel, CrunchFund, and many more.
Instawork is hiring a Senior Accountant, reporting into the Controller, to help shape the company's accounting function and to prepare the company for yearly audits.  This role is a mix of very hands on, traditional accounting tasks and forward-looking projects to improve our systems and processes.  Based in our San Francisco office, this is an awesome opportunity to join an early stage company with great investors, helping real people, every day.

Responsibilities of the role:
* Assist with the annual audit process; readiness and execution including preparation of supporting audit schedules. 
* Review technical accounting issues and drive to resolution, including the creation of audit memos as appropriate.
* Assist with month-end close procedures, including preparation of monthly journal entries, account reconciliations, analysis of results, and financial statements.          
* Recommend and help to implement financial processes and systems to help the company run efficiently as it scales.

Required skills and experience:
* Bachelor’s degree in accounting or equivalent, CPA strongly preferred.
* 2+ years of accounting experience, public accounting experience or public company experience preferred.
* Experience with NetSuite a big plus.
* Proactive, detail-oriented go-getter with strong critical thinking and organization skills.
* Excellent understanding of GAAP-compliant accounting policies, procedures and financial statements.
* Comfortable with ambiguity and dynamic workload.
* Interest in joining an early venture organization, where you will help to shape our culture and values.
* Passion for the hospitality community Instawork is serving, including some of the best restaurants in the San Francisco Bay Area!
