Pie's mission is to empower small businesses to thrive by making commercial insurance affordable and as easy as pie. We leverage technology to transform how small businesses buy and experience commercial insurance.
Like our small business customers, we are a diverse team of builders, dreamers, and entrepreneurs who are driven by core values and operating principles that guide every decision we make.

Working with the Accounting Manager and supporting our Controllers, you’ll contribute to building our accounting function and have valuable opportunities to help improve existing accounting processes, develop new accounting procedures, implement new financial systems, and take ownership of the company’s financial statements. You’ll interface with fellow Pie-oneers and external stakeholders while being accountable for the accurate and timely completion of all assigned tasks.

How You’ll Do It

  • Participate in the monthly accounting close process. Prepare journal entries, reconciliations, and variance analyses in accordance with U.S. GAAP and internal company policies. Deliver accurate information on time.
  • Perform account reconciliations related to premium receivables, claims liabilities, and reinsurance transactions.
  • Assist in preparing monthly/quarterly/annual financial statements and footnotes.
  • Maintain and improve the workpapers and processes utilized to close specific accounts you will own.
  • Improve existing accounting processes wherever possible, focusing on effective internal controls.
  • Support year-end financial statement audits as well as quarterly reviews.
  • Partner with the Finance team to analyze historical results and improve information quality.

  • Self-starter and self-motivated to work independently and adapt within a fast-paced environment with competing priorities.
  • Must be able to meet deadlines, such as monthly/quarterly/annual accounting close, external audit deadlines, etc.
  • Ability to work effectively with cross-functional team members.
