Who you are:

  • Backed by at least 1+ years of general accounting experience within consumer products, retail, auditing, or another related industry
  • The proud owner of a Bachelor of Science in accounting or finance
  • A total Excel expert (keyboard shortcuts are your love language)
  • Eager to work in a fast-paced environment
  • Consistently looking for new and innovative ways to work
  • Super serious about your work (without taking yourself too seriously)
  • A highly collaborative and communicative team player and self-starter willing to roll up your sleeves and get the job done
  • Highly organized and detail-oriented (improving and documenting processes is your bread and butter)
  • A dexterous multitasker who can prioritize several projects without losing focus
  • Ready to offer support whenever needed
  • Positive, kind, and excited by a challenge

Extra credit:

  • Oracle experience
  • Looker experience

  • Familiarity with monthly close procedures including generating journal entries and reviewing balance sheet reconciliations
  • A CPA (or looking to be one very soon!)

About Us:

Warby Parker was founded with a mission: to inspire and impact the world with vision, purpose, and style.

We're constantly asking ourselves how we can do more and make a greater impact, and that starts by reimagining everything that a company and industry can be. We want to demonstrate that a business can scale while doing good in the world, without charging a premium for it. And we’ve learned that it takes creativity, empathy, and innovation to achieve that goal.

Since the day we launched in 2010, we’ve pioneered ideas, designed products, and developed technologies that help people see. We offer everything you need for happier eyes at a price that leaves you with money in your pocket, from designer-quality glasses and contacts to eye exams and vision tests, and you can meet us online, at our stores, or even in your home. Wherever and whenever you need it, we’re there to make exceptional vision care simple and accessible. (Delightful, too.)

Ultimately, we believe in vision for all, which is why for every pair of glasses or sunglasses we sell, a pair of glasses is distributed to someone in need through our Buy a Pair, Give a Pair program.
