The Accountkeepers is looking for an experienced Accounting Manager who is interested in working at a different kind of company.

They are the senior contact for clients, meeting with them monthly (via video conference) to review their financial statements. The AM manages all aspects of the client relationship. Our AM and AA teams use a lot of technology on a daily basis, so anyone in this role should embrace ? and enjoy! ? accounting technology. We also keep the technology tools we use consistent, allowing our staff to build efficiencies and expertise.
We are a fast-growing, new company. While at heart the AM team’s role is to serve the clients on an ongoing basis, TAK processes and procedures change frequently as we learn what does, and does not, work for our clients and our colleagues.
