Accounting Manager

Do you love learning how to build things from scratch while honing your Accounting skills? Are you looking for an accounting experience that isn't like any other company? We are looking for exactly that kind of person.

At Groupon, Accounting isn’t your typical month-end close type of department. While we’re focused on providing financial information to the business, that’s only the tip of the iceberg. We’re building out financial systems to support every new business line and product, so our Accountants get a granular view and understanding of how a business is built from the ground up. The knowledge to gain is vast, as is the potential of our organization to continue growing.

Groupon is looking for a talented, highly motivated individual to join our accounting team as an Accounting Manager.  The role will be responsible for the day to day management and supervision of the accounting team based in London.

We're a "best of both worlds" kind of company. We're big enough to have resources and scale, but small enough that a single person has a surprising amount of autonomy and can make a meaningful impact. We're curious, fun, a little intense, and kind of obsessed with helping local businesses thrive. Does that sound like a compelling place to work?

You'll be responsible for the following:

  • Supervise monthly close and ongoing accounting related tasks 
  • Review of high risk/confidential balance sheet reconciliations 
  • Review & approval of monthly accounting entries prepared by the team 
  • Review of monthly reconciliations under US GAAP
  • Variance analysis of monthly and quarterly financial performance 
  • Liaising with external and internal auditors 
  • Responsible for SOX Compliance 
  • Partner with various stakeholders to scope and support the business with the launch of key revenue related business initiatives 
  • Lead in process improvement initiatives and automation to drive efficiencies in the close process 
  • Provide support, manage & coaching to the wider accounting team  
  • Any other duty that may be required for the effective performance within the role
     

We're excited about you, if you have:

  • Degree in Accounting & Finance (preferred)
  • CA, ACA, CIMA, ACCA, or equivalent (required)
  • Big 4 / Audit experience (required)
  • Experience managing a team of 2-3 people (required)
  • US GAAP & IFRS knowledge
  • Strong communication skills 
  • Strong organizational skills and attention to detail
  • Ability to manage and meet strict and multiple deadlines simultaneously
  • Intermediate to advanced excel skills
  • Previous experience using Netsuite (preferred but not essential)
  • Ability to work under pressure and to meet tight deadlines
