Senior Financial Accounting Analyst

  • Job Tag: #LI-CR1
  • Posted: March 18,2020

SkyWater is excited to be partnering with a global leader in the gene editing space that is looking to add a high-performing Senior Financial Accounting Analyst to their team.  The company (only ~ 12 years old) is still technically in “start-up” mode, thereby guaranteeing a ton of exposure to unique accounting situations as the Company continues to grow and raise capital!  Furthermore, the accounting/ finance team is fairly small, allowing you to wear a ton of hats and learn so many skills – operational accounting, financial analysis, learning how a business runs, etc. 

The ideal candidate is a doer – someone who is eager to dig in and learn.  You will report to the Director of Finance, who comes from public accounting and is a great mentor to learn from.  He’s looking for a motivated and driven individual who he can rely on to be his right-hand person for anything and everything accounting/ finance related.

If you are looking for a role with a ton of variety and the opportunity to extensively grow your accounting/ finance skills, this position could be an exciting opportunity for you!


  • Assist with the day-to-day accounting operations, including general business accounting and yearly audit performance
  • Own the month-end financial statement process, including recording month-end journal entries, drafting and creating month-end financial statements, and reconciling balance-sheet accounts
  • Ensure that policies, procedures and controls are being followed and documented in accordance with Sarbanes Oxley
  • Own financial analysis and ad hoc projects, when assigned

Desired Skills and Experience

  • Bachelor’s degree in accounting
  • Public accounting experience and/ or CPA preferred
  • 2+ years of progressive experience with accounting in a dynamic, fast-paced environment
  • Self-motivated and driven
  • Strong communication skills
