Our expert authors provide in-depth, section-by-section guidance, interpretation and analysis on the entire breadth of the FASB Codification, as well as updated coverage to reflect any new changes issued by the FASB. We are looking for an experienced accounting manager to lead our team!
The US GAAP Technical Accounting Managing Editor will lead a successful team of CPAs in charge of the creation, update, and maintenance of a powerful technical accounting research resource that establishes Thomson Reuters as a market leader in GAAP online information and tools. The Managing Editor will set the standards for quality and timely delivery of content, with the overarching goal being the timely creation of the professional insight and expertise necessary to design a cutting-edge customer-oriented product featuring market-leading analysis and guidance that provides expert, rapid response to significant developments in accounting standard-setting.
Our Managing Editor will lead and manage the editorial team, set priorities and ensure goals and schedules are met. He or she will set industry-leading standards for product quality and maintain them. In addition to restatements of the Codification in clear, concise English, the Managing Editor will supervise the creation of content that provides actionable insight for sophisticated users, such as CFOs, controllers, technical accounting and accounting policy professionals. These insights include common practice and pitfalls in applying the guidance, summaries of recent or emerging updates to the Codification, illustrative examples of required disclosures, excerpts of SEC comment letters, differences between IFRS and US GAAP, and comprehensive examples of calculations and journal entries described in the guidance. Further, the Managing Editor will create and maintain practice aids, such as detailed annual and interim disclosure checklists and memoranda that provide overviews of various accounting topics.
This role is perfect for an individual that enjoys diving into complex areas of the Codification, researching best practices, and creating thought leadership materials.
