Posted on: February 16, 2020

Job Description:

THE DIVISON'S STORY
Most people don't realize the importance of the Finance department in keeping our business operating without hitches and delays. That's probably because we oversee many of the more quietly glamorous, back-office functions that drive our bottom line. We not only forecast, build and manage budgets, we also collect and analyze important data that helps leadership make the best decisions. All of this sounds exciting to you because you love numbers and spreadsheets, and especially love great entertainment.

THE ROLE: Senior Accountant, Corporate Accounting

A+E Networks has an amazing Senior Accountant role with significant exposure in accounting, budgeting, and analytics functions.

    YOUR STORY:
    • BA/BS Degree in Accounting, highly knowledgeable in accruals and GAAP accounting
    • 3-5 years of experience in accounting or auditing required

      THAT SOMETHING EXTRA:
      If you've read this far, you're likely a great fit for us...and maybe you're fluent in sign language, have studied the circus arts or are currently writing a screenplay. If you have a special skill or backstory that might directly or indirectly help you succeed in this role, we'd love to hear about it in your cover letter.
