 Job Description
  The City of Saratoga is an attractive residential community with slightly more than 30,000 residents. Saratoga is known for its excellent schools, prestigious neighborhoods, and is home to many Silicon Valley executives. As the City incorporated in 1956, relatively long after the community had developed, pre-existing services were already established. As a result, Saratoga is structured primarily as a contract city with minimal staffing (56 FTEs) as many services are provided through other districts (fire/library) or by contract(police).

Under general direction of the Finance & Administrative Services Director, the Finance Manager performs advanced level professional accounting and financial management duties and oversees the day to day operations of the Financial Services Division, including supervision of four professional and paraprofessional accounting staff. This position will also assist the Finance & Administrative Services Director as needed, including the preparation of financial statements and analysis, written documentation, reports, and correspondence, preparing and participating in presentations, and policy and procedural development and implementation.

A bachelor's degree in business administration with major course work in accounting,
finance, or a related field; A minimum of five (5) years of professional level experience in governmental accounting and financial systems, including a minimum of two (2) years in a supervisory capacity; A valid Class C California Driver's license; Public sector auditing experience or CPA certification is desirable but not required.

The annual salary range is $103,022 to $125,236 with a competitive benefits package. For complete details, visit the City of Saratoga website at
