Job Description:

Everlaw is looking for a Financial Operations Specialist to join our rapidly growing Finance team. As a member of Financial Operations, you'll be responsible for processing Everlaw's account receivables. You'll participate in month-end close, look for opportunities to make the order to cash process more efficient, and support other finance initiatives. Reporting to our Controller, you'll have a great opportunity to own Everlaw's internal Collections process, showcase your problem-solving abilities, and amaze everyone with your attention to detail while supporting Everlaw's meaningful work in the industry, valuing truth and helping our users discover it.

At Everlaw, our mission is to promote justice by illuminating truth. Our company culture is open and democratic, and we're committed to the professional growth of our team members, offering an annual learning and development stipend and regular check-ins with managers regarding career goals. If you're looking for a place that values passion, integrity, thinking big, and a desire to learn, we'd love to hear from you! Think you're missing some of the skills and are hesitant to apply?

In the first year, you will

  • Work collaboratively with colleagues to make improvements and streamline the existing Collections process.
  • Coordinate with Sales and Account Executives, validating data integrity within our CRM system and contracts.

  • You have at least 3 years of progressive accounts receivable experience.
  • You have basic knowledge of US GAAP.
  • You are accurate and timely when it comes to accounting data entry, paying close attention to detail.
  • You are a clear and friendly communicator, confident providing customer service to colleagues and external vendors. You enjoy collaborating with your teammates to accomplish goals.

Pluses

It's working, and we've been growing very rapidly: we host hundreds of terabytes of data and work with all 50 state Attorneys General and hundreds of law firms on some of the most high-profile cases litigated today.
