We’re looking for a talented Senior Accountant to join our studio.

While your work will be primarily US focused, you will undertake some UK accounting functions.

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 Functions

  • Prepare journal entries, reconciliations, financial reports, financial analysis, budgeting and forecasts.
  • Manage accounting and finance functions for multiple entities located in the US and the UK such as intercompany billing, expense reimbursement and fixed asset controls.
  • Establish and implement accounting policies and procedures to improve end-to-end accounting practices.
  • Provide financial information to public accountants so they can file US & UK tax returns (income tax, tax credits etc)
  • Complete quarterly VAT returns for UK entities.
  • Maintain proper record keeping.
  • Manage relationships with 3rd party providers.
  • Perform ad hoc projects.
  • Sales tax reporting for future merchandise sales.

US Payroll and Benefits Functions

  • Process payrolls, including overtime, new hire, and termination payrolls.
  • Maintain up-to-date payroll records.
  • Manage employee benefits.
  • Ensure compliance with federal, state and local payroll, wage, and hour laws.
  • Assist with (or manage) UK Payroll and benefits, along with associated compliance filings.

What traits should I have?

We divide applicant traits into 2 categories: "Should Have" and "Nice to Have".

"Should Have" traits are things a candidate really should have, but you can make up for it in other areas. If you’re missing one or two, consider applying anyway, especially if you belong to a marginalized group

"Nice to Have" traits are ‘bonus’ traits that can improve your candidacy, but none of these are necessary to apply.

Senior Accountant "Should Have" Traits

  • CPA or Masters in Accounting, or other professional accounting accreditation.
  • 3+ years of relevant experience.
  • Strong technical accounting knowledge.
  • 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.

Senior Accountant "Nice to Have" Traits

  • Knowledge of UK payroll and accounting; US and UK tax credits; and US sales tax.
  • Ability working in a fast-paced, evolving environment with international teams. Comfortable providing strategic insight to management.
  • 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?

Where possible we choose to give a transparent estimated salary range for certain roles, to set expectations early and make sure your time isn't wasted.

For this role, we estimate the salary will be between 80,000 and 100,000 USD or equivalent in local currency per year, based on your experience. Salary is competitive and negotiable. Our aim is to be competitive with industry and regional standards.

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. Though we aim to respond to all applicants (including unsuccessful ones), you may not receive a reply if you don’t meet these criteria.

We’re really looking forward to reading your application. Apply for this job on Homerun below!
