Description

Career Area:

Accounting

Job Description:

This position is heavily focused on cost accounting for Caterpillar OEM Solutions.  This position will be responsible for legal entity (GAAP) and managerial closing functions.  In addition, there will be responsibilities for budgeting and planning, and comparison of actual results against plan.  Focus of the team is on continuous improvement in terms of our processes and mechanization/automation of tasks.  Ideal candidate will have a great deal of initiative, and the ability to solve complex problems.  In addition, relationship building is key as we support our internal customers.

JOB DUTIES: From the outset, incumbent will be expected to be a contributing performer, doing staff level accounting work that supports business processes. Additionally, this position will:

  • gain an understanding of Caterpillar’s business and accounting practices, systems and procedures;
  • learn and develop skills which result from the practical application of basic accounting knowledge, and
  • provide assistance to a project team or others in the work group.


Accountants will be exposed to a variety of accounting functions and will accomplish a high level of compilation and basic analysis work, reviewing clerical input and generating reports. The accountant identifies relevant data and data sources, gathers and analyzes the information, and provides feedback. Typically, decisions will impact relatively low risk issues and will be reviewed by a supervisor. A supervisor will direct work, but this position does not require close supervision to be effective.

Possible areas of responsibility are varied, including:

  • cost system maintenance
  • normals & machine rate development
  • abnormals identification & reporting
  • prime product and/or component cost monitoring & analysis
  • operations and/or product group budgeting and expense analysis
  • capital expenditure forecasting and reporting
  • standard and current cost grief resolution


The variety of accounting tasks ranges from low to medium complexity. Interaction outside the workgroup is typically with peers. As the Accountant gains experience, he/she will develop a technical understanding of more complex accounting issues and expand their decision-making capability.

Accountants will continuously learn through training and experience. Learning at this level will focus on methods, processes and systems applied to accounting, developing communications skills and building knowledge of Caterpillar’s businesses, products, suppliers and customers.

Basic Experience:

  • 4-year degree, preferably in accounting. Non-accounting degree requires minimum 18 hours of college level accounting or approved Accounting certification.
  • 1-2 years accounting experience

Top Candidates Will Also Have:
