Professional Alternatives - Houston, TX

NEW JOB ALERT: Accounting Manager in Southeast Houston

● Are you looking for true #worklifebalance in your #career ?

● Are you motivated by mentoring and encouraging others in their roles in order to build a shared success story for your entire team?

● Do you want to be challenged to grow your skills in a broad base of accounting functions like treasury reporting, system integrations, job cost reporting, managing a small accounting staff, and bank compliance?

● If so, nice to meet you! We are Professional Alternatives (ProAlt for those in the know), and our industrial services client offers excellent benefits, actual work/life balance (these folks seldom work overtime even during month-end close!), a close-knit team environment, along with a very competitive compensation plan.


✔ As the Accounting Manager, you will be overseeing three (3) direct reports responsible for accounts payable, fixed assets, cash applications, sales tax, and general ledger accounting.
✔ You will also be managing the complete accounting cycle, ensuring data integrity by performing periodic work flow audits, as well as preparing and reviewing monthly job cost reports and GAAP-compliant consolidated financial statements.

✔ Other areas will include treasury reporting, cash flow forecasting, annual budgeting, preparing weekly Borrowing Base reports to comply with bank credit facility requirements, working with the Controller to evaluate the overall efficiency of their current accounting and expense reporting systems, and overseeing the routine maintenance of their G/L system.
✔ Enjoy working with auditors? (Nobody really does, do they?) Well, you'll also have the joyous opportunity to coordinate with external auditors, prepare audit schedules and review supporting documentation.
✔ And in exchange, you'll be handsomely rewarded with a relaxing, full-day spa treatment (just kidding, but you will be highly respected by your peers for being a brave audit survivor!)


● Bachelor Degree in Accounting
● Over 8 years of progressive experience within an accounting function
● Experience using Timberline accounting system is a plus, although other mid-market ERP systems are acceptable (Great Plains, MAS90/100/500, Microsoft Dynamics)
● Experience in budget development and management
● Experience in a shared services environment
● Working knowledge of foreign currency exchange and intercompany reconciliations
● Proven ability to supervise, coach and mentor team members
● An attitude of team building and collaboration
● Strong skills in Microsoft Excel and Access


✔ Email your resume to, and tell me why you think you would be the best candidate for the job, what you love about accounting, and maybe describe one of your grandest career accomplishments.
✔ (I'm a recovering accountant myself, so I won't judge you for geeking out over how you developed a 5-year cash forecast in Excel like a boss!)
✔ I really do like hearing your stories, so don't hold back.
