What Career Questions Do You Have for Facebook’s Controller?

In this day and age, few companies have the visibility and prestige of Facebook. Yes, you have to block your Dad’s political rants, but forget all that. Facebook is a technology company working to change the world as we know it.

Changing the world involves a lot of numbers that have nothing to do with programming — budgets, forecasts, analysis, taxes, financial reporting, etc. Yep, stuff that accountants do. Most people don’t think about all that work behind the scenes, but it’s all very real as many of you know.

But many of us don’t know what accountants who work at a company like Facebook do. Since we’re always curious about what it’s like to work at some of the most innovative companies out there, we figured who better to ask than Facebook? So we did, and lucky for us, they agreed!

We’ll be asking questions of Matt Banks, Facebook’s controller. He is responsible for managing all aspects of the company’s North American revenue accounting operations, general ledger and consolidation teams. He is also responsible for helping set global accounting policy and managing the company’s internal control structure.

Matt started his career with Facebook as the Director of Accounting Revenue and Operations in 2012. Prior to joining the company, he was the Director of Technical Accounting at Yahoo. He also spent 11 years at EY, including two years in Amsterdam as part of the Global Exchange Program.

Since the GC audience has more questions than we could possibly come up with, we’d like to give you the opportunity to submit questions that you’d like Matt to answer about accounting careers at Facebook and any general questions you might have about working for a technology company.

Drop your queries in the comments below or email them to us and we’ll take care of the rest.
