Our primary brands, Premier Protein® and Dymatize®, appeal to a broad range of consumers across all major product forms, including ready-to-drink protein shakes, powders and nutrition bars, and are distributed across a diverse network of channels including club, food, drug, mass, eCommerce, specialty and convenience. BellRing’s commitment to consumers is to strive to make highly effective products that deliver best-in-class nutritionals and superior taste. We are majority owned by Post Holdings, Inc. and have offices in St. Louis, MO, Emeryville, CA and Munich, Germany.
Our Company is guided by the following core values:
The Director of Reporting & Technical Accounting will lead the technical accounting and external and internal financial reporting function at BellRing Brands, Inc., in coordination with the Post Holdings Reporting Team to ensure the appropriate application of US GAAP and SEC rules and regulations. The technical accounting function will lead the implementation effort of new accounting standards as appropriate for all of BellRing Brands’ business units and work with both internal and external auditors in the implementation and creation of effective control environments around new standards in compliance with SOX 404 requirements. This role will also act as the primary contact to determine the accounting requirements covering a variety of complex areas including mergers and acquisitions, variable interest entities, impairment review, stock-based compensation and hedge accounting. Qualified candidates should have extensive experience with US GAAP, SEC regulations and Sarbanes Oxley and have the ability to manage projects across various accounting and non-accounting disciplines.
We are seeking an individual who will participate and contribute to our growth, and who will enjoy our dynamic and focused business environment. The Director of Reporting and Technical Accounting will be an integral member of the accounting team reporting to the Controller, with a dotted line to the CFO. This position requires someone with great communication skills and who works well with others. The ability to interact with internal business partners and influence change is vital. The role is a combination of having strong technical accounting ability, in addition to demonstrating a strategic mindset to improve the overall effectiveness and contribution of the department. The end goal is for the Director to report accurate financial reports and provide technical accounting expertise to the business, while also acting as a strategic business partner, providing guidance and influencing business decisions.
Note: This position is currently remote-based due to the pandemic, but the person selected will need to be based within commuting distance of our Emeryville/Berkeley/Oakland border-based office when it reopens. We expect this position will have a combination of in-office and work from anywhere days each week once the office reopens. We expect that may happen mid-2021.
