Who We're Looking For

We are looking for high-caliber individuals who are interested in joining a fast-growing startup in the IoT world, and who enjoy solving day-to-day accounting problems, to lead our Accounting team.

An ideal candidate would have extensive experience in in-house accounting, well versed in HK GAAP and comfortable to refer to accounting principles when proposing accounting options on atypical accounting problems. You are a structured thinker and problem solver. As the Lead in Accounting, you should be driven and eager to deliver accurate and timely reporting. You would oversee daily accounting, shape our accounting policies and infrastructure, and lead the team to work within the company direction. You would be committed to develop and streamline the company’s accounting processes, whilst remaining flexible to the chaotic nature of a startup and the limitations to work in alignment with the company’s strategy. 

You will be mentoring, training and developing the team to grow the Accounting function in line with the company’s growth trajectory. You should also be comfortable communicating with team members through daily standup meetings and working collaboratively planning sprints.

Reporting to our VP, Operations, you will own the assigned problem, research and understand the current accounting systems and framework, identify potential solutions, openly weigh the pros and cons of each, then propose the optimal solution to senior management. Upon approval, you will coordinate the implementation of new processes.

As our close-knit team works at a quick and iterative pace, you should be highly motivated and passionate about continually adopting management best practices in an iterative manner. You should be eager to learn and to explore new ways of doing things.

If you like the sound of our vision and feel this could be a good fit, we’d love to hear from you. We believe passion and team fit are a key part of our recruiting philosophy – so if your skills aren’t an exact match, feel free to drop us a note anyway!
