In partnership with Los Angeles Metro, Bike Transit launched the Downtown Los Angeles Pilot Bike Share Program in summer of 2016, with 65 stations and 1,000 bicycles. Rapid expansion up to 4,000 bikes is anticipated in the following years. Our mission is to make bike share a healthy, easy, accessible and enjoyable way to get around Los Angeles.
The increasing size and complexity of the program and geographic expansion give rise to the need for an analytical and detail-oriented Controller. Under the guidance of the General Manager, the Program Controller will provide crucial accounting support for expansion and ongoing management of the Los Angeles program.
The Program Controller will be responsible for the entry of financial information in QuickBooks including accounts payable, accounts receivable, credit card statements and staff reimbursements. While basic accounting is key in this position, the role is far greater. The Program Controller will also act as the financial adviser to the General Manager. The position involves cash flow projections, budget and expense control, and assistance with a variety of financial support of the Operations, Marketing and Customer Service Managers. The selected individual will take principal responsibility for operational and budget-to-actual reports, and will also work closely with the Corporate team in strategic planning for the system’s expansion phases. The ideal candidate has excellent math and Excel skills, a passion for finding solutions to complex problems, and is a “systems builder” by nature. We are looking for a self-starting, highly detailed professional who uses technology to solve problems and is an excellent multi-tasker.
Duties and Responsibilities:
$80,000-90,000/year commensurate with experience, plus benefits including health care.
Type of Position:
Accounting: 5 years
Should you advance in the interview process three professional references will be requested and you will be asked to complete an Excel proficiency test.
