Who are you?

Having worked at a Top 20 Public Accounting Firm, you’re passionate about corporate accounting and know-how to make systems run more deftly and effectively. You’re a communicator who can act both on the professional scale expected of a multinational corporation, and also in a smaller, less formal environment. You’re enthusiastic, taking the initiative while engaging those around you. Simply put, you keep your eyes on the details and your mind on the big picture.


As a Senior Accountant at Saltchuk, you’ll focus your keen attention to detail on the critical accounting jobs that keep our company running smoothly. The job requires you to help prepare routine financial reporting like forecasts and actuals, consolidated financial documents, EBIT, EBITDA, cash flow forecasts, and quarterly reports. It also includes performing month-end close activities for the corporate home and for Saltchuk’s consolidated accounting records. You’ll reconcile assigned account balance sheets and craft new reconciliations as needed and assist during our external audit, getting the right information to auditors. Working closely with the Treasury Department, you’ll prepare weekly short-term corporate cash flow forecasts. You’ll provide a helping hand to build our Annual Plan, guiding department heads and teaming with other Finance team members to complete the plan and fulfill reporting requirements. As you identify them, you’ll recommend and implement improvements in execution for the corporate home office’s accounting operations. Our risk management department will rely on you to ensure proper reconciliation of funds received from insurance companies. You’ll originate systems reports, especially within Host, to make data accumulation more efficient. You will be called on to lead as a key player in implementing a new revenue recognition standard (ASC 606) and lease accounting standard (ASC 840) for Saltchuk and its subsidiaries.
