Job Description
SelectTech Services is seeking a data-driven, cost conscious, entrepreneurially minded accounting controller to work with our small-business government contracting company.  We have been in business, in the Dayton area for 30+ years, and support multiple contract types with management, staffing, design, and fabrication. This means that the right candidate would be comfortable with DoD type contract financial compliance and defense industry commercial clients across our core product markets. 
As the controller, you will close the books for our manufacturing operation monthly.  Our manufacturing operation is a project based business, which recognizes percent complete revenue.  We compile monthly cost data utilizing E2/Shop tech and Costpoint reports to generate a cost picture of the business.  Our project managers and operations managers support our monthly financial reporting by independently tracking and reporting on their estimate at complete metrics, using a variety of proven financial modeling methods for effective program management.  The combination of this data is used to generate our financials, and report to ownership on the growth and health of the business.  The controller will manage, and report on all of this.  The controller owns the data entry of this as well, including performing journal entries, estimated tax payments, accounts payable, bank reconciliation, line of credit reporting, and general ledger entries as required.  We do have some help with this from our office manager, and our large contracts utilize program financial analysts who will partner with the controller for data accuracy.
Our CFO supports the controller with invoicing, systems audits, financial reporting, cash flow, and other government compliance efforts.  The DCAA audits us annually to validate our data is correctly tracked. The CFO leads this charge, and the controller supports it. We are a small business, so the ideal candidate will have worked in a small business (but entrepreneurial) environment before.  Additional qualities we would like an ideal candidate to possess are:
  • Strong attention to detail and numbers with an emphasis on accuracy in reporting.
  • Sense of timely work completion and sense of urgency
  • Cash conservation minded
  • Ability to translate conceptual financial data into conversation with operations and sales teams.
  • A proficient ability to leverage MS Excel reporting, data tracking, and charting.
  • Experience with financial reporting systems, ideally Costpoint and/or E2, but experience with any system is a plus.
  • A CPA is desired, but not required.
  • Experience of at least 2 years in this type of role.
  • A 4 year financial degree of some kind.
  • Experience working in a manufacturing financial environment is also desired.
We are located in Centerville, Ohio and our manufacturing facility is in Springfield, OH.  This position is a primarily local, on-site role, in both Centerville and Springfield.  However, we support remote work on a limited basis (a couple of days a week) to support focus time.
