Duration: 6 months, possible extension
Pay Rate: Hourly rate will depend on candidate skills/experience


What specific departments will they interact with?
Service Ops, BTS, Treasury, Compliance

Describe the ideal fit:
The perfect candidate will have had 2-4 years of experience in audit/assurance with a Big 4 or national (ie, BDO, Grant Thornton, etc.) accounting firm. Candidate may also have additional accounting experience in private industry, where responsibilities include closing the books and monthly reporting, performing/overseeing internal controls such as reconciliations, as well as working with internal and external auditors. Since the candidate has large accounting firm experience, we expect that the candidate will be a quick learner, with excellent verbal communication skills, successfully manages deadlines, and concise written communication skills. We also expect the candidate to be experienced in shifting efforts between multiple priorities or projects for an extended period of time.
We expect that the individual works in a friendly and civil manner with everyone, and recognizes that the success of the group is more important than any one individual’s success. “A rising tide lifts all boats”
We believe this candidate has a strong work ethic, assumes ownership of individual and department responsibilities, demonstrates attention to detail, follows up consistently, and takes pride in their work, but eschews unreasonable pursuit of perfection. We also expect the candidate to be naturally inquisitive, curious about how things work, and how certain decisions are reached.
Learning agility will be a critical attribute to the success of the candidate in our group.
We believe this position will appeal to those who would like to move into an operational role instead of an accounting career path.

Summary of Job:
We will teach you everything you need to know to succeed in this position, including originating and servicing auto loans and leases, concepts and execution of secured lending, and participating in SEC required audit of Toyota’s ABS program. This is why high learning agility and aptitude are so important, as well as taking good notes and asking questions.
Initially, we will:
• Have you read through ABS transaction documents to gain an understanding at a high level.
• Review a sample of our 30 monthly investor reports to tie them back to the transaction documents.
• Participate in the quality control process to ensure every one of the 200+ values reported on every investor report is accurate. You will learn how to edit SQL queries of large data sets in this process.

Next, we will:
• Show you how to navigate through the loan/lease servicing system to investigate situations that don’t “seem right”. (ABS Ops plays a unique role. We are the only group that consistently identifies breaks in the servicing process, since we analyze data at the loan level).
• Show you how to execute functions in the ABS securitization system used to generate monthly investor reports, including selecting pools of assets which are the collateral underlying our ABS borrowing
• Assist in providing documentation to auditors, as well as examining instances of non compliance with SEC mandated servicing criteria under Regulation AB.

After a few more months, we will:
• Have you act as primary point of contact on new ABS transactions, from pool selection to final execution
• Have you participate in our practice of rotating team members through different positions with ABS Operations every six months to ensure that all team members are exposed to all aspects of department operations. The goal is for everyone to bring a fresh perspective to each role, with ideas on how to improve processes.
Each month, we have a recurring schedule, where the first half of the month is spent preparing and validating the investor reports for issuance. The second half of the month is spent on non recurring tasks such as the annual Regulation AB audit, new ABS transactions, data testing of the future servicing system, preparing for the next month of investor reporting, and implementing improvements in our processes. This is not a clean split between the first and second halves of the month, as second half requirements often bleed into our investor reporting prep cycle.
And of course, there are always the unpredictable projects as they arise.
In late 2017/early 2018, candidate will be deeply involved in testing to ensure a successful implementation of Company’s new loan and lease servicing system.

Requirements:
Must Haves:
• 3-10 years of work experience after leaving public accounting or Big 4
• No more than 3 years of managerial/supervisor experience
• A candidate who thrives in collaborative work environment; as compared to as an individual contributor
• Indications that the candidate is more of a “roll up your sleeves do-er” as opposed to a manager supplying guidance and supervision
• Strong analytical and problem-solving skills
• Strong organizational skills
• Excellent attention to detail
• High learning agility and flexibility
• Comfortable at multi-tasking
• Strong written and verbal communication skills.
• Works well with in a close knit team environment
• Advanced Excel – Vlookup, Data filtering, linking, pivot tables, quick keys, 10-key, high speed (no macros)
• NO prior experience in securitization or investor reporting is required.

Nice-to-haves:
• Post CPA firm experience in private industry.
• Experience with compliance (SOX, other regulatory) requirements and testing.
• Experience with editing or creating SQL queries
• Experience with manipulating Visio and/or Crystal Reports
• Experience with interpreting legal documents a plus
