Location: Work From Your Home for our All-Remote Company (USA only)
Controller For All-Remote SaaS Company
Are you an experienced accounting expert looking to become a star individual contributor to an all-remote team?
If so, we’d like you to learn about Files.com!
We are looking to hire an experienced individual to lead our financial operations, including corporate accounting, financial reporting, budget and forecasts preparation, as well as development and maintenance of internal controls.
We are optimistic that for the right individual, the Controller job duties will account for only 20 hours per week on average, and you’ll be able to spend the rest of your time as an integral part of our senior management team, taking on additional projects to grow and improve our business. For example, we are planning to execute one or more major acquisitions over the next year, and there will be opportunities to work on those deals.
Files.com is an enterprise secure file sharing & automation app with over 1,500 paying business customers, including Target, Canonical, UPS, Leica, DirecTV, GoPro, Marriott, and more.
We are a hybrid Remote-First and In-Office company, with certain teams being primarily located in-office and other teams being primarily located remote (work from home).
We’re Bootstrapped, Profitable, and Recently Became Backed by Growth Equity
Files.com was bootstrapped by our founder and has been profitable since its founding in 2010.
We recently raised $46.5 million of growth equity from Silicon Valley-based Riverwood Capital to accelerate our growth.
Our success comes from building a great service that solves problems for our customers, and our growth comes from expanding and improving our products as quickly as we can.
We believe that great products can only be built by great people. So we’re on a quest to find the smartest, most creative, and most motivated people, and create an environment in which they thrive.
We Are A Hybrid Remote-First and In-Office Company
We have invested heavily in Remote Work (work from home) since before COVID-19.
We believe that different people have different work preferences and the best way to have access to the widest talent pool is to offer both in-office and full-time remote positions.
To make this culture work cohesively, we have certain teams that are remote-first, and other teams that are primarily based in an office.
In either case, we are still big believers in traveling for regular in-person meetings with your team and the entire company to meet and work together face to face. These meetings are in cities around the US, including Austin, Orlando, New Orleans, San Diego, Las Vegas, and New York City.
We think that these in-person meetings are vital to the success of a remote team.
We have paused travel temporarily due to COVID-19, but we look forward to resuming travel this year.
You’ll take off 11 company-wide holidays per year as well as 20 days of PTO for vacations. You’ll have the time to take longer vacations and have fun.
About The Role
This is a hands-on position. As Controller, you will own the financial and accounting processes of the Company from top to bottom, including:
Managing the accounting operations of the Company, including Revenue Recognition, A/P, A/R, and our monthly books closing process
Conducting the monthly books closing process and preparing and publishing monthly financial statements
Maintaining the budget and financial forecasts
Developing and improving internal controls and policies and procedures
Serving as primary point of contact to our auditors and tax advisors

Our existing processes are built on Excel and Quickbooks Online. While we would entertain replatforming to Netsuite or Sage/Intacct in the future, we would like someone who is comfortable with our current platforms.
As we said above, we hope that for the right individual, you will have additional bandwidth to take on other projects in addition to the above duties. We are planning to execute one or more major acquisitions over the next year, and we would love to be able to have you play a major role in that process.
Bachelor’s degree or relevant experience
Proficiency in Excel, Quickbooks Online, and other financial management software
Experience working with SaaS financials, including revenue recognition
Experience having written VBA for Excel or building other automation tools, such as having worked with the Quickbooks Online API, .IIF files, .QBO files, etc. is a strong plus.
Specific experience with Quickbooks Online
CPA or CMA
Experience working on a remote team.
Our Core Beliefs
Here are just some of our Core Beliefs:
We believe that allowing and supporting 100% remote work gives us access to great people we wouldn’t otherwise be able to hire. We tend to hire folks who are later in their careers, which means they usually have their family established somewhere. By offering remote work, we can hire the best people, no matter where they’re located.
We believe that the best way we can acquire top talent is by being an amazing place to work. Work from home, travel with the team, and surround yourself with top tier people at Files.com. Read about everything we’ve done to make working at Files.com great.
We believe in building products that we actually use ourselves. We are our own toughest critics and we put all of our products through their paces every day.
