Accountant / Full-Charge Bookkeeper
The Role:

As our future accountant, you will work on a portfolio of clients, while intimately getting to know them and their businesses. We focus on building long-term relationships with our clients and our working relationship frees them up to focus on the parts of their business that bring them joy.

This position is fast-paced and demanding; you must be able to switch gears quickly while not losing momentum and precision. The ideal candidate is whip-smart; clever, bright and shrewd — yet leads from the heart. Has a professional, yet casual and personable demeanor. (lots of F-bombs getting dropped ’round these parts!) Someone with a literal passion for organization and optimization; always looking for ways to increase efficiency without cutting corners. The position also requires the ability to handle complex and sensitive information with grace, integrity, and ease.

And lastly – the ideal candidate will have a real love for accounting and all things numbers. Do you get lost in spreadsheets, hunting down the missing amount that’s making you off, with a smile on your face, cheering (internally) when you find it? Does cleaning-up a new set of books and making them pristine bring you joy? Do you feel aligned when you help a client make sense of their numbers, empowering them to make decisions? Do you use a spreadsheet for basically everything in your personal life? If you’re nodding your head yes, we need you on our team! We’re your people!

We have a small office with a casual dress code and are focused on results. If you love working for a small business, wearing many hats, and having no two days be the same, this is the position for you.
