Accounting Technology Job Title

  • 1.  Accounting Technology Job Title

    Posted 28 days ago
    Our HR team has been working hard at lining up job titles with the market.  We have an employee who works under the accounting umbrella but is involved in many aspects of the business, including accounting technology implementation.  She helps with contracts and A/R as well.  She has been involved in our mobile field and dispatch reporting project and will assist with a new document management implementation over the next year.  I do not want to lose her to our IT department by a title that includes 'IT' or 'Technology' but 'Accounting' seems too narrow as well.  We have Accounting Operations Specialist and Business Operations Specialist on the table now.

    Does anyone have any ideas or thoughts on what we can do here?

    Thanks!!

    Hi Jim, this sounds like it can be under the umbrella of a "Manager of Business Administration."  Business Administration can consist of Accounting, Finance, IT, Training, Contracts, Operations, HR and Facilities. It depends on the size of the business and what industry is in, but this is usually a well-rounded type of role with hands in many areas.

    If you'd like to see an example of a description I have you can email me at joybigley@gmail.com.

    Jim, my title was converted to "Director of Enterprise Applications" a few years back since I am involved in implementations, current best practices, maximizing our ERP software, and integrating systems that share common data. I report to the CFO but work with other departments (IT, etc.) as well as other team members across the spectrum.

    Because of our size and growth I currently have two reports with the title of "Coordinator - Applications".

    Can you tell me what document management solution you are implementing? We will need to make a switch soon and wanted some advice on solutions. I have looked at several.​

    I've worked for a couple of contractors that have roles like this and have seen titles like Director of Financial Systems, Manager of Financial Systems as well as some already outlined in the response chain. These roles had teams working under them that included titles such as Finance Director, Payroll Systems Support Analyst, A/P Systems Support Analyst and similar titles based on areas of expertise.

    Thanks all for the input.  It was a lower level position.  We went with Business Analyst.
