Comic Book Jobs: DC Entertainment (Burbank)

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, DC Comics,

JokerDC Entertainment in Burbank (formerly part of DC Comics in New York) is looking for a new warm body in their finance department. The job is Senior Analyst, Financial Planning and Analysis.

As one of the head number-crunchers, you’ll probably be reporting to Nairi Gardiner, who was just named Senior VP of Finance.

Working out of the Finance & Administration department, you’ll be crunching it numberwise for “assigned departments” and managing aspects “of financial planning and monitor operating results against plan.” So you’ll be grading people and their plans and seeing how well - or otherwise - they do.

It’s all budgets, forecasts, financial planning, revenue and expense templating, done with weekly updates so there’s no quarterly panic attack should the wheels fall off the wagon at some point.

There are lots of financial-based buzzwords tossed around in the listing, but this is my favorite jam-packed sentence: “Support preparation of monthly and quarterly BU close deliverables to Corporate, including the electronic Financial Package, By-Title Submissions and Cause of Change (COC) schedules.”

You’ll at least need a BA/BS degree in Accounting, Business or related field, a CPA and/or MBA, and a minimum of 3 years experience in money matters. If you’ve been with one of the Big 4 accounting empires (Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, PwC, Ernst & Young, or KPMG), your resume rises to the top like fresh cream.

So put on your visor and get that application into the counting house.

Good luck, DC job seekers!
