FinOptimal seeks experienced in-house accountants with controllership experience (active CPA license a plus) for both REMOTE contract and REMOTE full-time work.

Your initial responsibilities would include:

  • Managing other accounting professionals, including other CPAs and bookkeepers
  • Fielding and dispatching client requests — requires well-prioritized, courteous, and thoughtful responses that demonstrate very strong written and spoken language skills
  • Mapping out bookkeeping plans for clients (to help other team members understand automated and manual transaction-booking workflows)
  • Fixed asset and inventory accounting, including depreciation and COGS computation — calls for strong technical chops
  • Bank reconciliation, monthly review of clients’ general ledgers, and troubleshooting and fixing errors
  • Reporting and modeling — demands very strong Excel and Google Spreadsheet skills
  • Maintenance of clients’ QuickBooks Online companies — strong existing knowledge of QuickBooks Desktop is an acceptable starting point, but direct QBO experience is preferred

The right applicants are comfortable with processes that change regularly to improve efficiencies. They are thought partners in improving these processes and play a key role in driving service value. Advancement opportunities exist for especially motivated, skillful candidates.

The work is ENTIRELY REMOTE/VIRTUAL/WORK FROM HOME. We communicate primarily by email, phone, and our ticketing system (for client request handling and task management). Hours are reasonably flexible, but performance standards are very high. Confidentiality, data security, and active, critical thinking are all key.
