This position will function at a Staff IT Auditor level reporting to the IT Audit Manager and focused primarily on executing IT General Controls as well as providing enterprise-wide IT and Integrated Audit services globally to the Internal Audit Department. This position will support the business and IT audit teams in defining scope of audits, identifying key risk areas, and reviewing relevant controls in support of the annual, risk-based audit plan.

As a Staff IT Auditor you must have an understanding of audit and the ability to interact with management at all levels. This position requires excellent communication skills as well as an understanding of COBIT, generally accepted accounting principles and IT audit techniques.

We're a "best of both worlds" kind of company. We're big enough to have resources and scale, but small enough that a single person has a surprising amount of autonomy and can make a meaningful impact.

  • Provide assistance as assigned in conducting business process level control testing, coordinating with other staff auditors in the department.
  • Ability to interact and communicate with peers and all levels of company management is critical.
