Grammarly is excited to offer a remote-first hybrid working model. Team members work primarily remotely in the United States, Canada, Ukraine, Germany, or Poland. Certain roles have specific location requirements to facilitate collaboration at a particular Grammarly hub.

All roles have an in-person component: Conditions permitting, teams meet 2–4 weeks every quarter at one of Grammarly’s hubs in San Francisco, Kyiv, New York, Vancouver, and Berlin, or in a workspace in Kraków. This flexible approach gives team members the best of both worlds: plenty of focus time along with in-person collaboration that fosters trust and unlocks creativity.

Grammarly team members in this role will collaborate in person 2 weeks per quarter, traveling if necessary to different hubs. They are required to live within a commutable distance of their home hub of San Francisco. Grammarly may provide relocation assistance.

The opportunity

Grammarly is the world’s leading AI writing assistance company trusted by over 30 million people and 70,000 professional teams every day. From instantly creating a first draft to perfecting every message, Grammarly’s product offerings help people at 96% of the Fortune 500 get their point across—and get results. Grammarly has been profitable for over a decade because we’ve stayed true to our values and built an enterprise-grade product that’s secure, reliable, and helps people do their best work—without selling their data. We’re proud to be one of Inc.’s best workplaces, a Glassdoor Best Place to Work, one of TIME’s 100 Most Influential Companies, and one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies in AI.

To achieve our ambitious goals, we’re looking for an Accountant to join our GL accounting team. The accountant will report to the Accounting Manager and play a key role in ensuring the integrity of our records and developing scalable and sustainable processes as Grammarly grows. This is an ideal position for a self-starter who is eager to learn, contribute to, and adapt to change in a fast-growing global company.

Your impact

As the Accountant, you will work in various areas, including but not limited to bank reconciliation, intercompany transactions, fixed assets, account reconciliation, external audit, and more. Without compromising quality, you will concurrently manage multiple priorities, including effectively streamlining the month-end close process. You will work cross-functionally within a detail-oriented environment where creative problem-solving is highly valued.

  • Within your first 30 days, you will start taking over the month-end close process for Canadian subsidiaries, fixed assets, and bank reconciliation.

  • By month nine, you will participate in process improvements to streamline the monthly financial close process.
  • Beyond your first year, you will proactively identify issues and assist in optimizing systems, upgrades, and automation of accounting processes. You will aid in the development and implementation of new policies and procedures as well as with financial audits.

  • Can meet tight deadlines and prioritize competing workloads while communicating clearly and empathetically, both face-to-face and in writing.
  • Is a curious, detail-oriented problem-solver who can organize and manage multiple responsibilities while displaying a high level of integrity, commitment, and responsibility to day-to-day work.
  • Has experience working with NetSuite and Coupa.
  • Demonstrates English proficiency and advanced Excel skills.
