We're looking for an accountant to help ensure Zapier meets compliance in any state where our 100% remote team currently has operations. If that sounds interesting, read on!

We know applying for and taking on a new a job at any company requires a leap of faith. We want you to feel comfortable and excited to apply at Zapier. To help share a bit more about life at Zapier here are a few resources in addition to the job description that can give you an inside look at what life is like at Zapier.

About You

You're a practicing and experienced accountant. This isn't your first rodeo. You may not have dealt with everything you'll encounter at Zapier, but you have a background of experiences that guide your decision making and you can use that to make smart decisions.

You are willing to take on any task. Zapier is a fast growing and nimble team. You'll be part of an accounting team of two working alongside our CFO. You're eager to take on any task that comes your way no matter how big or how small.

You're resourceful. When you encounter a task you haven't done before, you know how to use Google, your network, your teammates knowledge and whatever other resources available to find a good path forward.

  • Streamline and maintain equipment purchasing process along with building and maintaining the fixed asset system.
  • Work with managers to properly account for R&D credits
  • Assist with some accounting duties such as the deferred revenue calculation, wires and payments.
  • As a part of Zapier’s all-hands support philosophy you'll help customers via support to ensure they have the best experience possible.
