Senior Accountant


Mailchimp is a leading marketing platform for small business. We empower millions of customers around the world to build their brands and grow their companies with a suite of marketing automation, multichannel campaign, CRM, and analytics tools.

Mailchimp is looking to add a Senior Accountant to our team that will help manage the financial needs of our growing software company. We need a serious number cruncher to join us in our not-so-serious work environment.  Roll up your sleeves and jump in those books...we are looking for a strong work ethic and a sense of urgency all mixed up with a passion for what you do.

To be successful in this role, it is important that you have extensive GAAP knowledge and quickly gain an understanding of Mailchimp’s transactional expenses. You will have the opportunity to contribute to the team by being the first line of defense for team questions, taking on some of the more complex reconciliations and all in all being a utility player in our accounting function.

What you’ll do here: 

  • Facilitate and find ways to improve the monthly close process
  • Analyze, verify and record financial transactions in an accurate and timely manner
  • Analyze interim financials for accuracy and consistency of transaction recording
  • Prepare monthly and quarterly account reconciliations
  • Improve and maintain process documentation
  • Assist with annual audit


We’d love to hear from you if: 

  • You have a degree in Accounting
  • You have a CPA with public accounting experience
  • You have 3-4 years of accounting experience
  • You are self-motivated with good planning and organization skills to balance and prioritize work
  • You have strong analytical and problem solving skills with a high attention to detail

  • You are able to multitask, work under pressure, and meet required deadlines
  • You thrive in a fast -pace setting and have strong interpersonal and communication skills
  • You have strong experience with Microsoft Excel
  • You have experience with an ERP system preferred (NetSuite is a plus!)
  • You likely have experience with Google suite
