How You’ll Make An Impact

The Staff Analyst is a key member within SiriusXM’s Governance, Risk, and Compliance team responsible for managing the organization’s Information Technology General Controls (ITGCs) environment as part of SiriusXM’s SOX program. This will be a highly visible, hands-on individual contributor role that will partner with stakeholders to support and maintain the organization’s IT controls. Responsibilities will range from control design and implementation, performing assurance activities on the operation of controls, partnering with stakeholders to perform controls readiness activities, and managing the organization’s control narratives and related documentation. Additionally, this role will interact extensively with the audit teams as part of annual audit execution procedures.

What You’ll Do

  • Be the SOX IT Controls subject matter expert, working with IT control owners as well as partners in IT, Internal Audit, and Finance to ensure ongoing alignment and management of the organization’s SOX program.
  • Manage documentation related to IT SOX controls, including system diagrams, control descriptions and narratives, and system scoping.
  • Partner with stakeholders to be the “bridge” between interpreting audit requirements and designing/implementing controls that satisfy these requirements.
  • Manage ITGC testing, including coordinating with independent auditors and Internal Audit to ensure evidence is sufficient and provided timely.
  • Track identified control deficiencies and partner with stakeholders to lead remediation procedures.
  • Conduct controls readiness assessments for new systems or processes prior to being in scope for SOX to proactively identify and remediate potential controls issues.
  • Work with stakeholders to identify potential areas for IT controls efficiency, such as consolidating or automating processes, and design and implement solutions.
  • Provide periodic status and result reporting to senior leaders.

What You’ll Need

  • 8+ years’ experience with SOX IT Controls. The ideal candidate will have experience assessing IT Controls in an external audit role as well as experience managing/testing IT controls in an internal capacity as well.
  • Deep expertise with SOX IT Controls, including control design and implementation, as well as deficiency analysis procedures and documentation.
  • Must have strong communication skills, especially the ability to take ambiguous audit requirements and put them into actionable steps for non-technical IT control owners.
  • A keen eye for identifying areas of potential improvement as it pertains to efficiency opportunities. Strong preference will be given to candidates with a track record of control automation and consolidation.
  • Big 4 experience (or similar) strongly preferred.
