About the job
Google accountants are a savvy bunch who handle the core accounting responsibilities at Google. As a member of this team, you know your accounting principles and the full accounting process end to end. You'll advise on financial reports required by governmental regulations, and you'll review, analyze, and interpret financial and budgetary reports - and all this sounds like fun to you. Every day is a new challenge, and you're continually looking for ways to help our team get better at what we do, in the most efficient way possible. A team player at heart, you collaborate with our global team, advocate best practices and roll up your sleeves to pitch in when it's all hands on deck. You move fast while keeping your attention to detail, and you tap into your problem-solving skills to support Google's business objectives.
We rely on our SEC Reporting team to report helpful, accurate, compliant, timely financials to the SEC and our financial statement users. We prepare the release of Google's financial statements to the SEC and public. You give expert advice to management on U.S. GAAP/SEC filings and work closely with the Investor Relations team on sales/earnings press releases.
You will lead the team to submit accurate 10Q/10K documents efficiently and work on key projects to improve our filings. You will ensure our results are appropriately reflected in financials, optimize processes, mitigate risks, and anticipate, assess, and implement future disclosure requirements.
