Eventus Careers

Senior Manager/SEC Reporting

Why Eventus:

If you like varied work and a mix of project and ongoing functions, this is the role for you. If flexibility, variability, autonomy, responsibility, leadership, and the ability to work virtually are musts for you, then this is the role for you. You get the mix of the variability of consulting without the grueling travel requirements.

Company Overview:

Eventus exists to support finance teams of midsize and rapidly growing public and private firms with fractional resources. Fundamentally, many of our clients have the exact same finance needs and requirements for quality as large firms. What they don’t have is the same transaction volume and size. Therefore, they can’t justify hiring the full-stack, full-time finance and accounting teams they need to achieve the level of quality demanded. This inevitably leads to unmet needs and extra stress.

Over the last twelve years, we’ve built our business by getting our hands dirty and playing a key role in our clients’ financial operations to solve this problem. We can support the entire back-office from basic accounting to providing CFO leadership and or aiding the SEC reporting and listing process. We add value by providing flexibility – the right person (or people) with the right expertise for the job, at the right price. And we do it with a planning process that makes sure clients “measure twice and cut once,” ensuring
superior execution.
