Corporate | Columbus, OH | Full Time

Job Description

Are you an accounting and billing professional seeking purpose, challenge, and talented colleagues? Would you like to grow your career by effectively collaborating with Project Managers regarding all aspects of project financial performance. This essential role involves monitoring budgets, extracting and analyzing data, reporting results, general ledger accounting and issuing project invoices in accordance with contract terms.  CESO is a civil engineering, surveying, and architectural firm with diverse project opportunities: shopping centers, restaurants, large hotels, convenience stores and urgent care centers among others. We develop leaders and empower staff to use their gifts to impact the world through service – to our coworkers, to our clients, and to our communities. We subscribe to the mission of “empowering our people to impact communities by bringing clients’ visions to life,” so if this speaks to you, let’s connect!

As a Staff Accountant you will proactively communicate with our Project Managers to set-up projects in our Deltek Vision System, track budgets, generate and distribute invoices, provide account receivable follow-up, accounts payable, account reconciliation and compile reports on the financial status of each project, and ensure client satisfaction.  We establish long-term, meaningful relationships with clients focused on building brands and integrate with their teams to help them design, manage and develop their brand across the country. Our Staff Accountants will serve as the link between these important clients and our equally-valued internal project managers and accounting team members.  

We develop and inspire our Staff Accountants through training and coaching on the job.  At CESO, we believe that work should be more rewarding than just a paycheck.  In addition to a comprehensive benefit and compensation program, our work environments are warm inviting spaces to collaborate with your teammates. CESO is a principle-centered organization, thinking and acting in alignment with strong values of service, integrity and authenticity.  We create memories and friendship through our employee and service events including lunches, birthday celebrations, outings, and community service opportunities.

Our Staff Accountants will have a Bachelor's degree in accounting.. We desire 0-2 years of project billing accounting experience or internship experience combined with strong organizational skills, AP/AR and general ledger experience.  Experience with Deltek Vision Software and the ability to partner with others to complete a billing project is preferred. Industry experience in civil engineering and architecture is a plus. If you have a passion for accounting, a knack for critically thinking through complex problems and strong communication skills, this is for you. 

If you agree, we look forward to hearing from you!
