Accountant

Hey you. You with the brain and the awesome math skills. Are you an Accountant that loves
accounting but wants to work in a place where accounting might be little more exciting? If so,
The Variable might be the place you’re looking for.

We’re searching for an extraordinarily driven and organized Staff Accountant to join our team.
Day-to- day, they’ll aid in record keeping and bringing more organization to our financials.
They’ll work closely with our Controller and Business Operations team to assist with month-end
close activities while managing media and production pass-through transactions for the agency.
Long story short, you’ll be our in-house numbers magician.

The Variable is a fast-paced, exciting and highly creative environment. We develop award-
winning creative ideas one minute and breakthrough product innovations the next. (Did you
hear about the energy drink we created? Cause we did. Or that we have a screen printing
press? Cause we do.) This is the perfect opportunity for an Accountant with mad skills who
doesn’t want to spend their time in a bank or stuffy corporate atmosphere.
