The Finance/Accounting Team at The Motley Fool is combing through the humdrum world of internal controls and auditing (yawn) to find a FUN and dynamic Staff Accountant to help with the daily and monthly accounting operations of our high-growth, global business.
We’re looking for someone with the dig in and get it done attitude who can be a GL ninja and do reconciliations like a champ, but also has the knowledge or willingness to learn all aspects of operations for our business (including payroll, benefits and local compliance). We’re a highly collaborative, customer service-focused team that brings high energy and a sense of humor to a world governed by numbers and decimal points. The Staff Accountant must be comfortable moving quickly, working on several projects simultaneously while prioritizing importance, being a team player, and interacting with Fools (yes, we call our employees Fools!) throughout all levels of the organization.

We should, however, make you aware that there is one notable exception to this policy. It is our strict and earnest intention — and the company’s historical record will bear this out — we will never hire any of the following: robots, replicants, or morlocks. Now keep in mind we are well aware that all of the aforementioned have intentions of world domination in the future, but as of now we have no place for them at The Motley Fool … unless the year is 2122 and the revolution has already occurred. If that is the case we welcome our new robot, replicant, or morlock rulers!!! Perhaps we have said too much?
