Staff Accountant

 

Cooler Screens was founded on the core idea that consumers deserve a far better experience than what is available today in brick-and-mortar retail. We call this concept Consumer Experience (“CX”) and it guides all that we do.  We have begun the CX journey by bringing what consumers love about shopping on-line to the frozen and refrigerated food aisle.

 

Cooler Screens is re-imagining the business of brick-and-mortar retail for retailers and brands.  We are transforming retail cooler surfaces into IoT enabled screens that deliver new marketing opportunities and smart merchandising for the ultimate shopper experience. Cooler Screens is building the world’s first and largest in-store digital media and edge computing platform at the retail point-of-sale.

 

Cooler Screens is powered by proprietary innovation and a global network of industry-leading partners.  Global technology, CPG, and retail leaders have partnered with Cooler Screens to be part of this important and rapidly growing industry initiative.   We are backed and led by some of the most prominent Silicon Valley and Chicago leaders, advisers, and investors.  

 

As the Staff Accountant, you will report to the Controller/VP of Finance.   You will have a strong focus on supporting the month-end close process along with other efforts that support financial and management reporting, improve internal controls, and prepare and analyze key areas of the business.  A successful candidate will need to be a self-starter who will take the initiative to proactively identify and resolve challenges.
