Are you looking for a new challenge to support a growing financial business? Are you looking to build on your experience and grow your career? Fisher Investments is a privately-held investment management firm who manages portfolios for high-net-worth private clients and some of the world's preeminent institutions. We are now searching for highly talented individuals to join our Accounting team in our Portland Metro Area office in Camas, WA.

  • Contribute to the month-end close and account reconciliations
  • Assist with audit schedules and vendor inquiries

    On the Accounts Receivable Team, you will:

    • Process billings to domestic and international Private and Institutional clients on a timely and accurate basis
    • Communicate with internal departments on billing issues to improve current processes
    • Reconcile, research, and resolve Billing variances when they arise.
    • Assist with the month-end close, identifying issues related to account delinquency and additional projects and tasks assigned

      Your Qualifications:

      • No prior experience required - we focus on transferable skills
      • Bachelor's degree in Accounting, Finance
      • Business, or equivalent combination of education/experience
      • Excellent analytical and communication skills
      • Proficiency in MS Excel and Word
      • Professional full-cycle accounts payable or accounts receivable experience
      • Ability and comfort working in a dynamic team-based environment
      • A detail oriented focus

        Why Fisher Investments:

        Fisher Investments is a different kind of investment firm. We don't come from Wall Street, nor do we believe we fit in with most of the finance industry, and we're proud of that. We work for a bigger purpose: bettering the investment universe. From unmatched service to innovative perspectives on investing, it's the people that make the Fisher purpose possible. After all, it's our people that enable us to offer the level of service that we do. And we invest in them accordingly, offering exceptional benefits like:

        • 100% coverage of premiums for health, vision and dental insurance
        • A 50% 401(k) match, up to the IRS maximum
        • 20 days of PTO*, plus 9 paid holidays
        • 8 week paid Primary Caregiver Parental Leave
        • And much, much more

          We also provide a cumulative, continuous learning and development framework customized for every employee. This emphasis on personal and professional growth has yielded an award-winning work environment; we're Great Place to Work Certified, and The Oregonian named us as a Top Workplace.

          But in the end, it's not the perks that keep people here. They stay because they believe in our mission of service-our employees want to make a difference in an industry that can do better.

          * California employees accrue up to 17 days of PTO and 3 days of sick time per year.
