東京経営管理・コーポレート系

2018年入社

高校時代から会計学を学び始め、大学でも会計を専攻し在学中に簿記1級を取得。在学時代に参加した財務・経理業務に特化したインターンシップでJIG-SAWを知る。中長期的なビジョン・戦略に惹かれ、入社を決意。現在は、経理業務を通じて経営層の意志決定を支援している。また、新卒採用業務も兼務中。車・バイク好き。趣味はF1観戦で、レース開催日には眠い目を擦りながら深夜の中継放送を楽しんでいる。休日は喫茶店で読書をするのが定番の過ごし方。

経営のすぐ隣で、
アップデートし続ける経理。

経営に、あらゆるステークホルダーに、
貢献できる仕事。

「お金の流れを知ることで、世の中の流れを知ることができる」。その言葉が私の人生を決めました。高校入学したての私は、授業の一環で“公認会計士の仕事とは?”というテーマのガイダンスを受けました。そこで冒頭の言葉を聞き、「あぁ、そんな世界があるのか」と感銘を受けてしまったのです。お金を通じて、今の社会がどんな状態にあり、経済がどう動いているのかを掴むことができる。そこから派生して、投資や経営といった分野にも貢献することもできる。そう知って、「簿記で食べて行こう!」と高校一年生で決意したのです。
現在、JIG-SAWのアカウンティンググループに所属しています。「経理部とは?」と質問すると、「お金を管理している部署」と答える方が大半だと思います。もちろんそれも大切な仕事。でも、それは一面に過ぎません。経理の使命は「経営層の意思決定を支援すること」です。経理と経営は、隣り合わせと言ってもいいほど近い関係にあります。私たちは、お金の観点から企業の現状を明らかにする財務諸表というものを作成します。財務諸表とは企業の成績表のようなものですが、これを見て経営層は自社の経営状況を確認し、経営判断・投資判断の材料にします。それだけではありません。金融機関や投資家は融資や投資判断の材料にし、国や自治体は適正な税金徴収を行います。私たちの仕事は経営に直結し、また、様々なステークホルダーにも影響を与えるものなのです。

急成長企業で、
グローバルな会計の知識を磨く。

私たちが作成する資料に万が一間違いがあれば、経営層の誤った意志決定につながってしまうかもしれません。納税額の算出を誤れば法を犯すという意味になってしまうし、ひいては株価にも影響を与えかねません。私たちの仕事は、「1円のずれが命取り」なのです。だからセルフチェック、ダブルチェック、トリプルチェック。正確な業務遂行は絶対不可欠です。その一方で、企業が成長すればするほど経理業務は複雑化し、より専門性を問われるようになります。成長企業の経理を担当する人間は常に、自分をアップデートしていかなくてはいけないのです。私もJIG-SAWに入社してから国内経理はもちろん、年度決算の業務も1年目のうちから経験でき、他社では若手のうちではなかなか経験できないものを業務として任され、こなすことで成長を実感しております。また、JIG-SAWは変化の会社。海外展開、新規サービス創出、事業領域拡大…etc. 様々な変化と成長が絶え間なく続いています。事業の成長はもちろん、2019年には米国とカナダに現地法人を設立しました。今後は、海外の税務、会計にも精通していかなくてはいけません。常に勉強ではありますが、言い換えれば、経理として成長できる機会に溢れているということでもありますね。成長企業の経営を支え、グローバルで活躍できる力を磨く。それができるのは、JIG-SAWだからこそだと思っています。

仲間たちが最高のパフォーマンスを
発揮できる環境づくりが使命。

JIG-SAWは、0から1を生み出す会社。開発部門、営業部門の仲間たちが、日々新しい価値の創出に情熱を注いでいます。私たちコーポレート部門の人間は、その仲間たちが最高のパフォーマンスを発揮できる環境をいかにつくれるか、創造性を育める環境をいかにつくれるかが大切だと思っています。そのために私たちも常に進化です。アカウンティンググループにおいては、たとえば、日々社内で行われている精算業務を効率化し、わかりやすくスピーディに処理できる仕組みづくりなど小さな改善も重ねていきたい。現場の声を聞きながら、よりよい環境づくりを推進していきたい。それがJIG-SAWがスローガンに掲げるゲームを変え、世界を変えていくことに影響を与えていくと考えています。

Tokyo Business Management・Corporate

Joined in 2018

He began studying accounting in high school, and majored in it at university. He obtained the highest level of bookkeeping certification while still a student. He learned about JIG-SAW through an internship he participated in while still in school, which specialized in finance and accounting operations. Attracted by the company's medium- to-long-term vision and strategy, he decided to join in 2018. Currently, he supports the decision-making process of management through accounting operations, and is also responsible for recruiting new graduates. He enjoys cars and motorcycles. His hobby is watching F1, and on race days, he stays up through the night to enjoy late-night broadcasts. On his days off, he usually spends his time reading books in cafes.

Accounting, hand in hand with management, is always being updated.

A job to contribute to management, and all stakeholders.

“If you understand the flow of money, you can understand the flow of the world.” Those were the words that determined my career. I had just entered high school, and as part of a class, I heard a lecture on "What is a certified accountant?” When I started to really listen, I was impressed with this new world, previously unknown to me. Through money, we can grasp what the current state of society is and how the economy is doing. It can also be used to contribute to fields such as investment and management. Learning this, I decided in my first year of high school, "I'll make a living as an accountant!”
Currently, I am a member of the accounting division at JIG-SAW. What is the accounting division? I think most people would say that it’s the department that manages money. Of course, that’s an important part of our job. But it’s only one aspect of it. The main mission, I think, of accounting is to support the management’s decision-making process. The relationship between accounting and management is so close that you could say they are neighbors. We prepare financial statements that show the current status of the company from the financial perspective. Financial statements are like a company's report card, and the management checks the company's business status by reviewing them, and uses them as a material for making business and investment decisions. But that's not all. Financial institutions and investors use it as a basis for financing and investment decisions, and the national and local governments collect the appropriate taxes based off of them. Our work is directly related to management, but it also affects various different stakeholders.

Develop your global accounting knowledge in a fast-growing company.

If by any chance there are any mistakes in the documents we prepare, it may lead to misled decision-making by the management. If we make a mistake in calculating the amount of tax to be paid, we would be breaking the law, which in turn could affect our stock price. In our line of work, being just one yen off can be fatal. That's why we have to self-check, double-check, and triple-check our work. Accurate business execution is absolutely essential. On the other hand, the more a company grows, the more complex and specialized the accounting work becomes. The person in charge of accounting for a growing company needs to constantly update himself/herself. Since joining JIG-SAW, I have been able to experience not only domestic accounting, but also the annual closing of accounts from my first year. I feel that I have grown through the opportunities of being entrusted with tasks that are difficult as a young employee, something I don’t think other companies would offer. In addition, JIG-SAW is a company of change. Overseas expansion, the creation of new services, expansion of business domain, etc. Various changes and growth are constantly taking place. In addition to the growth of our business, in 2019 we established local subsidiaries in the United States and Canada. In the future, we will need to become more and more familiar with overseas taxation and accounting. It's a constant learning process, but in other words, there are many opportunities to grow as an accountant. Here, you can support the management of a growing company and improve your ability to be active on a global scale. I believe that JIG-SAW is the only place that could have made that possible for me at the current stage of my career.

Our mission is to create an environment where our colleagues can do their best.

JIG-SAW is a company that creates something from nothing. Our colleagues in the development and sales departments are passionate about creating new value every day. I think it’s important for those of us in the corporate division to create an environment where our colleagues can perform at their best, and where we can nurture their creativity. That is why we need to be constantly evolving. For example, in the accounting division we want to continue to make small improvements, such as streamlining the daily settlement operations, and creating a system for speedy and easy-to-understand processing. We would like to promote the creation of a better environment while listening to the voices of those in the field. I believe that this will have an important impact on how we “change the game and change the world.”
