Accountant - Global Financial Accounting & Controls

Amazon.com, Inc. - Seattle, WA

The Amazonian Culture

Based in Seattle, Amazon is a pioneering, dynamic, and energetic company that thrives on unique and peculiar ways. We take pride in our single-minded obsession over customer satisfaction and our ability to maintain a curious and vibrant culture no matter how large the company grows. We endeavor to build our legacy as Earth's most customer-centric company and to continue to cultivate and nourish our innovative environment through our mission to hire the best. If you are a financial accounting professional who consistently exceeds expectations, who dares to make bold decisions, and whose ears perk up at the prospect of a challenge, then Amazon is a place where your career can flourish.

When working at Amazon, your ability to make a difference and take ownership of your career begins on day one. You can expect a collaborative, team-driven environment that encourages employees to learn, be curious, and have a bias for action. Part of this propensity for continuous learning shows itself in Amazon's strong encouragement of rotation within the Accounting department and within the company as a whole. We aim to hire and develop those who will raise the bar over the course of their career at Amazon (and not just in their first position). Given this encouragement for rotation, and given our company's ever-increasing growth, we are always looking for strong candidates to fill new positions and backfill existing ones.

Job Description and Responsibilities

The global accounting organization supports Amazon's financial reporting, internal control, intercompany, and transfer pricing activities as well as global business launches for Amazon's consumer products, digital initiatives, merchant, operations, logistics, payments, and cloud computing lines of business. Amazon's accounting group offers opportunities in Legal Entity & Intercompany, Accounting Policy & Reporting, Operations and Capital, Transportation, Payments & Merchant Services, Retail Operations, Digital, and AWS Accounting.

This position will have responsibility for supporting all parts of our financial reporting process and will be expected to understand internal control design concepts sufficient to assess the effectiveness of controls in their area. This Senior Accountant is expected to have a strong sense of ownership, ability to identify process improvement opportunities, drive positive change across the organization, and enhance partnerships between Accounting and various business and IT groups. Technical accounting research and position paper writing will be involved in this role.
