US-CA-LA- Technical Audit Specialist Needed 417

  • This is an ideal position for a technical auditor from one of the ‘big’ firms who is looking for a chance to settle down and come ‘inside.’ Ticketmaster offers an excellent opportunity for such an individual to take ownership of the technical audit process and work closely with a world-class operations and IT group.
    Technical audits are becoming increasingly difficult to perform and perform well. Interfacing with audit personnel, both internal and external to the organization, takes valuable resources off of mission-critical projects and operations to provide the information necessary to satisfy the auditors’ many and varied requirements. Ticketmaster is looking for an energetic, motivated audit specialist to join its Corporate Information Systems team who can thrive in a highly technical environment, someone who knows up front what the auditing requirements are and who will work with multiple technology groups to satisfy the requirements in a manner that is organized, thorough, and proactive, all while minimizing the impact to the productivity of the technical departments’ staff. The ideal candidate is someone who has lived through several audits, preferably on the auditor’s side, and who is fluent the languages of auditors, tech staff, and finance personnel alike. In addition to auditing duties, the ideal candidate will serve as the primary liaison between the tech organization and the finance organization for matters including operating expenditures, capital expenditures, employee hiring, and general financial planning. As such, this person should be someone who is very comfortable not only with the concepts but also with the language so that the conversations with finance personnel can be as productive and succinct as possible, a translator of sorts between finance and tech.
