Assistant Controller


April 17, 2021

Webflow is a visual web development platform that empowers non-coders to create incredible experiences for the web.
As our Assistant Controller, you'll report to the Controller and work closely with cross-functional business partners and key external partners. This is a high-visibility role that will play a key part in building a world class GL team.
About the role
  • Location: San Francisco HQ or U.S. Remote
  • Full-time

As an Assistant Controller, you'll …
  • Lead all aspects of the operational accounting function, ensuring complete and accurate financials in accordance with US GAAP
  • Oversee month end, quarter end and year end close areas, including GL, international consolidations, and technical accounting, as well as identify opportunities to reduce the close timeline.
  • Partner with the Revenue Manager on close and cross functional accounting projects
  • Manage our GL accounting tech stack, and further automate where necessary. Our tech stack currently includes: Netsuite, Abacus, Bill.com, Brex, and TripActions
  • Drive reporting, ad hoc projects, regulatory compliance, and annual audits
  • Assist with the development, documentation and maintenance of corporate accounting policies, procedures, and controls for Webflow
  • Assist with international expansion and transfer pricing strategy
  • Manage and mentor direct reporting personnel

That said, these responsibilities are just the start! At Webflow, we encourage you to contribute wherever your interests take you — and shape your role accordingly. And this isn't just a philosophical bent: we actually give you 4 hours a week (10% of the work week) to pursue passion projects outside of your role responsibilities.
About you
You'll thrive as our Assistant Controller if you:
  • Have an active CPA license and possess strong understanding of US GAAP
  • Are a detail-oriented individual with a high sense of urgency and exceptional organizational skills
  • Have experience managing an audit, month-end close and technical accounting areas
  • Thrive in a fast paced environment
  • Are passionate about building from the ground up
  • Have proficiency in Microsoft Excel and Netsuite
  • Have experience working in public accounting

If you don't meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that you can still be considered for a role if you meet just 50% of the role's requirements.
