  • Communicate with customers (CPAs in public practice and in corporations) to resolve their needs, and ensure that our products are responsive to those needs.
  • Identify new product development opportunities based on current technical developments, results of communications, and personal experience and expertise.
  • Research technical inquiries received from customers and provide answers or references to other Thomson Reuters products.
  • Monitor groundbreaking products and recommend appropriate response.
  • Assist with marketing and strategic development projects as requested.


Qualifications:
  • CPA required.
  • Manager or Senior Manager with over 5 years' experience in public accounting or comparable relevant professional/corporate experience, including broad-based technical accounting and auditing knowledge and strong technical research skills.
  • Ability to execute assignments in a timely, competent manner, and identify update features, practical insights, and other improvements to our products.
