What’s the Job?

We’re looking for a talented Senior Accountant to join our studio on a part-time basis for 20 hours per week. Your role will encompass everything from daily accounting functions to providing strategic direction to leadership. While your work will be primarily US focused, you will need to work closely with our Accountant for Uplift Games’ UK subsidiary.

We are a diverse team and we strongly encourage applications from people in marginalized groups. This is a remote position open to candidates who are based in the US or UK and can demonstrate eligibility to work in those countries.

What is expected of me?

  • Accounting and Finance Function
    • Day-to-day accounting function.
    • Financial reports, financial analysis, budgeting, and forecasts.
    • Benefit management, expense reimbursement and payroll including employee payroll onboarding and offboarding.
    • Establish and implement accounting policies and procedures to improve end-to-end accounting practices.
    • Liaise with CPA to provide information for tax return filings and other government filings.
    • Perform Ad Hoc projects.
  • Compliance
    • Make sure required state and local filings are filed on time.
    • Respond to government inquiry.
    • Record keeping for all compliance related documents.
    • Ensure compliance with federal, state, and local employment regulations related to payroll, wage, hour, vacation/sick leave, and worker compensation.
  • Work closely with our UK Accountant. Act as backup for each other.

Your background

These are the things candidates really should have but can make up for in other areas. If you’re missing one or two, consider applying anyway, especially if you belong to an marginalized group.

  • CPA or Masters in Accounting, or other professional accounting accreditation.
  • 3+ years of relevant experience.
  • Excellent skills in Microsoft Office including Excel.
  • Experience in Quickbooks and US payrolls.
  • Experience in establishing accounting policies and procedures.
  • Self-directed, proactive, detail oriented. Able to manage your own time effectively in a remote work environment with minimal guidance.
  • You value diversity and want to work alongside talented people from marginalised groups. We are explicitly a trans, LGBTQ+, BIPOC / BAME and disability positive team.

Bonus points

These are things that can improve your candidacy, but none of these are necessary to apply

  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills. Able to translate financial language and concepts into easily digestible and understandable reports, verbally, in writing and in presentations.
  • Attention to detail, organizational skills and focus on continuous improvement.
  • Experience in a video game studio.

What’s the Compensation?

When possible, we provide transparent estimated salary ranges to set expectations early and to respect your time.

We recognize, however, that salaries vary within our various remote geographical locations. To give an indication of the salary level for this role, we estimate the annual salary will be as follows for these example locations:

  • USA: $40,000 - $50,000 USD ($80,000 - $100,000 USD FTE)

Our compensation package is intended to be competitive with your local market and is negotiable.

For employees in the UK and US, we have a competitive benefits package. Find out more on our Why Work Here page.

I’m ready to apply.

A few reminders: you must be over 18 to apply. Though this is a remote role, you must reside in and have permission to work in either the US or UK to apply.
