We are looking for an Interim Senior Accounting Manager (18 months) to join Mediatonic.

Mediatonic is the game developer behind Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout and a new member of the Epic Games family. We’re aiming to build "the Greatest Gameshow on Earth" as part of our mission to connect people through massively multiplayer game experiences.

We take pride in crafting original titles that bring people together. Our quest is to create joyful experiences that are open to all by investing in the ideas, technologies, and people that can bring our vision to life.

  • Responsibilities

    The foundation of the Epic Finance team within Tonic Games Group is teamwork. We are a close-knit team, always ready for a new project to collaborate on and constantly looking for opportunities to improve processes and drive the department forward. We pride ourselves on our relationships with the Tonic Games Corporate & Creative disciplines, as well as the wider Epic Finance teams.

    In this role, you will:

    • Manage and mentor two Subsidiary Accountants and one Accounting Manager;
    • Provide strategic oversight and direction for transactional accounting including accounts payable, accounts receivable, and general ledger;
    • Take ownership for the review of month-end reporting for all Tonic Group companies;
    • Coordinate the monthly group consolidation and report results to Epic Group Finance, being the key point of contact for variance analysis;
    • Oversee the local external audit and be the key point of contact for any deliverables in relation to the Epic Group audit, when in scope;
    • Business partner with the department heads across our Corporate teams and Creative disciplines on a number of matters, including budgeting & forecasting;
    • Provide support to the team on technical accounting such as fixed asset reviews, revenue recognition, VAT & Video Games Tax Credits;
    • Support the Finance Lead and wider Tonic Games executive team with ad hoc projects;
    • Continuously review financial, control, and management information systems and procedures, implementing improvements across the business; and
    • Professionalize and challenge the way processes are done so we can be more efficient and produce accurate monthly figures.
  • Requirements

    You will need to be a qualified accountant who has a strong background in statutory and management reporting, excellent attention to detail, and a passion to partner with key stakeholders across the business. Experience managing a small team is a must, as well as previous experience looking after the day-to-day Finance operations of a group subsidiary. We are still in the early stages of our integration with Epic Games and this is a critical business role that will play a pivotal part in the implementation of new systems, processes, and procedures to align the Tonic Games Group with Epic Games.

    What we’re looking for:

    • A qualified accountant (+4 years PQE);
    • Experience managing a small team;
    • The ability to make independent decisions and manage conflicting priorities in a fast-paced environment, coming up with recommendations and solutions;
    • Passion to solve a problem, embrace the unknown and tackle a challenge;
    • A team player who’s collaborative, supportive, and celebrates others’ wins;
    • Stellar communication skills, written and verbal;
    • An interest in gaming is desirable;
    • Previous exposure to Workday and/or system implementations would be advantageous;
