Sprout Social is used by over 25,000 brands worldwide including: Sony Electronics, Make-a-Wish Foundation, Subaru and Edelman. These businesses rely on Sprout to create stronger relationships with their customers through social media. 

Our Finance Team isn’t your typical month-end close type of department. We’re a dynamic team working in a fast-paced and always changing environment which means our Senior Billing Specialist will have the opportunity to play a large part in standardizing the customer experience. Although we might live in spreadsheets and provide financial information to the business, that’s only the tip of the iceberg. The knowledge to gain is vast, as is the potential of our organization to continue growing. Doing our jobs effectively means we approach each interaction with confidence, each process with diligence, and our customers with care.

The Senior Billing Specialist we seek is someone with B2B billing/invoicing experience, someone who is able to communicate clearly, and someone who thrives in a fast-paced environment with the ability to maximize efficiency. This is a remote-based position where you'll work from your home office in the Philippines, supporting North American business hours.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

When I first joined Sprout, I could count the entire Sales team on one hand. Since then, my career has taken a variety of paths, from training and enablement to assisting our Sales team from a strategic perspective as a Solutions Engineer. Thanks to a workplace environment that fosters growth, I’ve been able to advance my career at Sprout.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Instead of turning down ideas that seem unattainable, we encourage our teams to think through how we can solve challenges in unique ways. By testing and experimenting, we create an environment that fosters innovation and promotes creative thinking.

Jamie Gilpin

What's something quirky about your company?

At the conclusion of our company wide Kickoff party, tubs of McDonalds cheeseburgers mysteriously appear and rain down on us like a blizzard in the Chicago winter. But a good blizzard.
