Recursion is a clinical-stage biotechnology company decoding biology by integrating technological innovations across biology, chemistry, automation, data science and engineering to radically improve the lives of patients and industrialize drug discovery. Our team is working to solve some of the hardest, most meaningful problems facing human health today. Come join us in our mission to decode biology to radically improve lives, while doing the most impactful work of your life.

At Recursion, we combine experimental biology, automation, and artificial intelligence to quickly and efficiently identify treatments for human diseases. As we continue to grow our finance and accounting team, we are currently looking to hire an Accounting Clerk to support the processing of all vendor payments including the scanning, sorting, and filing of invoices. Under the supervision of the AP Manager, this role will also ensure vouchers and invoices have been matched with the proper receiving reports, process monthly employee reimbursements and assist in the proper coding and tracking of expenses relating to various company initiatives and projects. 

The Impact You’ll Make

Just as our employees work to push the limits of drug discovery, you’ll push your newly-acquired accounting skills to the limit to ensure that the Accounting team has the support they need to provide timely, accurate, complete, and insightful financial information to key stakeholders.  This newly-created role is ideal for someone who is looking to put their accounting fundamentals into practice at a high-growth company. This position is located in downtown Salt Lake City and offers a flexible work schedule. This can be either a part-time OR full-time position.

The Team You’ll Join 

As an account clerk, you will be an essential member of the Finance Team reporting directly to the AP/Payroll manager and work directly with other accounting clerks and members of the finance team. The Finance team is a fun, tightly-knit group. You will leverage the depth and breadth of your accounting knowledge to help increase the sophistication of our existing payroll function during a time of exponential growth, post IPO. You will also rely on your interpersonal skills to effectively work cross-functionally across the organization.. You will need self-initiative, a collaborative mindset, and the ability to transparently communicate with organization team members at all levels.

The Experience You’ll Need

  • Working towards a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting or Finance 
  • General understanding of accounting practices and principles
  • Working knowledge of the Microsoft Suite (i.e. Word, Excel, PowerPoint)
  • An ability to function as a team player, provide exceptional internal customer service, and meet deadlines 


The Values That We Hope You Share:

  • We Care: We care about our drug candidates, our Recursionauts, their families, each other, our communities, the patients we aim to serve and their loved ones. We also care about our work.
  • We Learn: Learning from the diverse perspectives of our fellow Recursionauts, and from failure, is an essential part of how we make progress.
  • We Deliver: We are unapologetic that our expectations for delivery are extraordinarily high. There is urgency to our existence: we sprint at maximum engagement, making time and space to recover. 
  • Act Boldly with Integrity: No company changes the world or reinvents an industry without being bold. It must be balanced; not by timidity, but by doing the right thing even when no one is looking.
  • We are One Recursion: We operate with a 'company first, team second' mentality. Our success comes from working as one interdisciplinary team.

Recursion spends time and energy connecting every aspect of work to these values. They aren’t static, but regularly discussed and questioned because we make decisions rooted in those values in our day-to-day work. You can read more about our values and how we live them every day here.
