  • Work with our Investor Relations team and other key stakeholders to assist in the preparation and review of quarterly Earnings Release, analyst slides and investor call speeches.
  • Liaise with the external and internal auditors on financial accounting and reporting policy issues, as needed.
  • Contribute to a collaborative, team-first environment and bring your unique perspective and curiosity to set ambitious goals and drive process improvement initiatives to challenge the status quo.
