Job Description

We didn’t create Bold Penguin because commercial insurance is broken. It isn’t. But as the world has gotten more connected and digitized, commercial insurance lags behind—creating a fragmented landscape where businesses, agents, and insurance companies struggle to interact in a smooth and easy way. That’s why we’ve built a highly efficient exchange that cuts the friction out of commercial insurance by connecting everyone to the right quote in record time.

Powering the world of insurance is no small feat, so we’ve brought on a team that’s not only incredibly talented but also passionate about our potential to upgrade the entire industry. As more and more companies big and small depend on our technology to operate in the commercial insurance space, we’ll need the best talent all around to support our growth. That’s why we’re looking at you (yes, you!) to make a bold move and join our adventure.

  • Assist with quarterly and year-end financial audit activities and the annual corporate financial controls audit.
  • Work on the monthly close and general accounting functions, including, but not limited to: accounts payable, accounts receivable, general ledger, cash management, and taxes.
  • Assist with the budget and forecast process.
  • Assist with payroll as needed.
  • Perform ad hoc analysis and projects as requested.
  • Review, receive and post-commission/override payments and work with compliance to ensure timely and accurate payment.
  • Coordinate with the implementation team to identify when billing milestones are met and ensure that invoices are promptly submitted and paid.
  • Work closely with and integrate external accounting partner staff into monthly, quarterly, and annual financial reporting processes and develop a strong working relationship.
