Requirements : The ideal candidate for this role is an accountant who spent 5 years as an auditor and another 5-7 years in the controllers’ organization of a casino group or online sportsbook operator and who is now ready to build out and lead a new team. This person will be responsible for the integrity of Sleeper’s books and records and for financial and tax filings made to local, state and federal authorities. This person must have the technical chops around accounting for gaming revenues and the related balance sheet impact; experience in accounting for customer acquisition costs and internally developed software would be incredibly useful as well.

In addition to being technical, the person in this role needs to be an ambitious self-motivator.
