Senior Technical Accountant

Know your way around GAAP like a master chef knows their kitchen? We’ve got the job for you!

We’re looking for a versatile pro with deep technical accounting expertise and a practical perspective—someone who can navigate the gray areas of accounting, understand and appreciate the operational challenges faced by companies in keeping with the constantly changing accounting landscape, and create practical solutions.

This role includes an opportunity to provide hands-on accounting consulting support to clients and to be a member of the firm’s elite Technical Accounting Group (TAG). TAG is a resource for fellow consultants and clients, delivering technical accounting and reporting guidance, assisting with the implementation of new accounting pronouncements, and providing pre-transaction accounting advisory services that enable our clients to make better decisions when structuring deals.

Consulting with RoseRyan means being a part of a collaborative group of seasoned professionals. Our consultants enjoy challenging, independent projects and take pride in being strategic business advisors who help ensure the success of our clients.

You’ll have opportunities to speak on panels with business partners and industry leaders, write thought leadership papers, provide training on technical accounting areas, talk with the press, and help continue RoseRyan’s social media outreach. It doesn’t get much more exciting than that!
