Department Overview

The finance team at Aria is a lean group of hard workers that manages all the accounting, reporting, and analysis for the company.   Our goal is to support the other functional areas – sales & marketing, product development, customer success, professional services, and operations – such that they can better support our customers.   A new CFO recently took the helm and is looking to grow a top-notch team of players to help drive the company’s growth.

  • Facilitate and manage tax and business compliance activities (local, state and federal).
  • Implement ASC 606 and be the in-house expert on all accounting issues.
  • Own financial audits by external auditors.

Required Qualifications

  • 10+ years of experience with a combination of public accounting and operational accounting experience.
  • Proven experience with building and leading teams.
  • Certified Public Accountant (CPA) certification.
  • Experience with NetSuite.
  • Thorough knowledge of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).
