Job Description

Replicant is a voice AI technology that works out-of-the-box to solve customer problems over the phone. We craft great conversations by combining Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and linguistic conversational design into the fastest, smartest, and most expressive Thinking Machines™ you’ve ever spoken with.
Our platform lets companies offer high-touch customer service without hiring, offshoring, or adding complex technical infrastructure to your call center. Replicant’s autonomous contact center handles call flows so agents can focus on what matters to customers, rather than answering mundane questions.
At Replicant, we’re creating a market for human-to-machine communications for the enterprise and redefining what it means to have machine driven conversations. We’re starting with customer service but the opportunity is much larger as we enter new markets and verticals. If you’re excited by AI and automation and want to make an impact with great technologists from MIT and Berkeley and strong go-to-market leaders from companies like Salesforce and Talkdesk, look no further.
As Director of Accounting, you will report to the CEO and will be a key leader in the Finance and Accounting organization. You will manage and be responsible for the outcomes of the accounting operations, billing operations, revenue, and sales compensation. You will own the development and operational excellence of bookings, revenue and expense forecast models and partner closely with business leaders across multiple functions including engineering, product, sales, and marketing to ensure the financial and operational rigor of the business.

    • Compliance with employment laws and regulations i.e. monitoring state and local registrations for payroll taxes, local health and unemployment insurance
    • Manage our Billing Operations and Revenue teams who ensure our systems bill our customers accurately, our customers pay timely, and revenue is recognized in accordance with ASC 606
    • Manage our consolidated strategic and financial planning processes, the annual operating plan, rolling financial forecasts, and the underlying financial planning models, systems, and tools

What You'll Bring

    • At least 10+ years of relevant experience in U.S. accounting operations
    • Experience transforming a payroll function to maximize automation, scalability and cost effectiveness

Our Values
Replicant has three core values. It is critical that everyone who joins the team feels excited and moved by these values as every new team member makes an impact on our culture.
Blade Runners: We take ownership and pride to influence the outcomes of our goals. We are successful, and like a Blade Runner, use the tools at our disposal to reach our objectives. We value open and honest communication and proactively seek feedback along the way. We are a company driven to grow and achieve both individually and as a team.
Bread Makers: We are humble and strive toward an egalitarian culture. No task is too big or too small. We work together to achieve our goals and develop our company mission. We believe that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts in everything that we do.
Självdistans (Self-Distance): Självdistans is Swedish for self-distance. It's the ability to critically reflect on oneself and one's relations from an external perspective. With this in mind, we act with objectivity and always remember that we are not our work. There's no perfect science to growing a team or business, but we trust everyone at Replicant to point out our blind spots and humbly admit their own.
