Accounting Database Specialist

Location: Reston, VA

We are seeking a PL/SQL wizard who enjoys working with complex data models and business logic written in SQL.  You will work exclusively with our Accounting Engine – the core component of our flagship SaaS application.  You will master the complexities of generating journal entries for multiple accounting standards while managing data explosion, based on mathematical approaches to accounting and data compaction and disaggregation. Much of your time will be spent working side by side with accountants, trying to unravel the nuances of “long tail” scenarios that require tweaks to the PL/SQL without breaking existing scenarios. This is a person who enjoys digging into code and getting their hands dirty with tasks of all sizes and varying degrees of complexity.
