WE'RE LOOKING FOR A HIGH-ACHIEVING, DETAIL-ORIENTED, LOYAL, INTRAPRENEURIAL FORWARD-THINKING TEAM PLAYER
WHO LOVES PUZZLES, NUMBERS, AND EMBRACES TECHNOLOGY AND IMPROVING SYSTEMS.
Does this sound like you?
You’re a planner & implementor and you can manage your own deadlines. Your superpower is managing multiple projects and task lists
You’re a natural problem solver. When you see a problem, you know there’s a solution and you’ll find it. You’re super resourceful!
You’re analytical & strategic. You like to know the why behind what you do and figure things out.
You love details but know when not to let them bog you down.
You take ownership and bring ideas to the table, ready to implement them.
You’re someone who loves the entrepreneurial world, but doesn’t want to be an entrepreneur yourself. We call this the INTRAPRENEUR.
You aren’t afraid of communicating with vendors, clients, team, and others virtually, and you understand how important it is!
You understand what Of Course Bookkeeping is all about and you’re ready to play a critical role I helping us level up our clients!
DO YOU WANT TO JOIN AN ENTHUSIASTIC TEAM OF FAST-PACED GO-GETTERS, WHO ARE ON A MISSION TO HELP CLIENTS UNDERSTAND THEIR NUMBERS SO THEY CAN GROW THEIR NUMBERS AND HAVE MASSIVE IMPACT?
We are looking for a Rockstar Staff Accountant to join our team!
Imagine what it'd be like coming to work where you're respected and have the opportunity to grow and learn new things while truly making an impact in the lives of others. You're surrounded by a team of ambitious bookkeepers who are supportive, encouraging, and push you to grow into the best version of yourself!
Imagine being not only appreciated but also celebrated for your hardwork and being able to streamline the way you do things instead of being told "that's just how we've always done it."
We're a growing company and we're looking for a four-leaf clover (Hint, that could be you!) to join our team and help us meet our mission.
Let's get the bad news outta the way first:
🔘 The hours start around 15-20 hours per week BUT as you (and we) grow, this can become a fulltime position with our company, so we're looking for someone who's in it to win it. Hours may increase during busy seasons or month end (but honestly, nothing like most accounting firms).
🔘 If you're looking to work with us and work on your sidehustle with 5 other clients, then this is not the right role for you (see above). 😭
🔘 We're looking for someone who can add to our team with these part-time hours, but feel like this could be their full-time home, and this is NOT a fit if you're trying to build your own biz.
🔘 We require all hands-on-deck and more hours during busy times to support the influx of work required (while we support taking vacations, we probably won't approve requests for time off right around crucial deadlines (January 31, Month End Close, etc).
Now let's talk about the good stuff:
WE WORK REMOTELY (AKA VIRTUALLY💻)... Which means you don't have to wear 'business casual' or sit in traffic. You can come to work in your PJs or yoga pants. Whatever floats your boat. Just please wear clothes.
THE HOURS ARE FLEXIBLE...
We'll work with you to create a schedule & routine that is good for us both. Our only requirement is that you show up for weekly team huddles, check in & out each day and be within one of the US timezones. We support clients across the US & our HQ is in Arizona (our own timezone altogether)!
THE WORK IS ACCOUNTING, BUT IT'S STILL FUN & YOU'RE MAKING A DIFFERENCE!
You'll be handling the accounting for 5-10 online business clients who are doing incredible things. You'll be communicating with clients for missing information and working as a team with the Client Manager to get accurate and timely information to our clients so they can make a bigger impact too.
YOU'LL HAVE TIME TO LEARN & GROW...
One of our core values is growth—personal, professional & financial. Growth mindset plays a critical role in your success as a human, so we provide time & resources for you to continue your education personally, professionally and financially. In fact, continuing education is required. In other words, we pay you to learn.
