More information about this job

Overview

Turn 5 is one of the largest and fastest growing e-commerce retailers in the Greater Philadelphia area.  Best known for our award-winning e-commerce platforms, AmericanMuscle.com, ExtremeTerrain.com and AmericanTrucks.com, we’ve been engaging car enthusiasts with exceptional products, services, and experiences since 2004.

 

Our purpose, however, extends beyond selling car parts. We have a commitment to creating meaningful customer experiences at every step of their journey. Whether it’s supplying a unique product that customizes the look and feel of their ride, providing thousands of educational videos for the DIYer or leveraging user generated content to inspire even the most experienced owner, we are obsessed with ensuring we reach as many like-minded gearheads across the globe.

 

To continue our growth path, we need a Junior Staff Accountant who can contribute broadly to our Finance & Accounting team which is the backbone of our business.  You will thrive in a fast paced, ever changing environment and bring a laser focus in accounting for, reconciling, analyzing, and reporting sales and returns, accounts receivable, and operating expenses.  Your contribution in this role assures we make smart, timely and accurate financial and operational decisions. 

 

You will be challenged to work both strategically and tactically across the accounting function.  One minute you might be recording journal entries and closing the books for month end, the next minute reconciling our vendor receivables, and the next minute analyzing the balance sheet and income statements. Regardless of the task, it’s critical you have strong situational awareness and EQ as you’ll work collaboratively with diverse stakeholders across the organization as you learn our business from the inside out. 

Responsibilities

Year 1 is going to be about:

  • Completing month end financial close and reporting for assigned areas of responsibility
  • Recording journal entries and ensuring the accuracy of information through monthly analysis and reconciliation of assigned balance sheet accounts and departmental income statements
  • Working with accounts payable as required to identify and resolve any issues or discrepancies related to vendor receivables and credits
  • Preparing and maintaining schedules and reconciliations related to vendor receivables, bad debt allowances, and deferred revenues
  • Assisting in the completion of our ERP system integration

Qualifications

We can’t skip over some of the specific skills and experience we know are a “must” to be successful.  So, we need you to have:

  • Bachelor’s Degree in business administration with an accounting or finance concentration
  • Entry level accounting experience with the ability to deal with the analysis of financial and numeric data
  • Exposure to Microsoft Dynamics GP, QuickBooks, Oracle Financials, SAP, or other accounting software
  • Proficiency with Microsoft Office, with an emphasis on Excel
