Are you a Bookkeeping Super Star looking for great opportunity to do what you love and lead others ?
Part Time, Remote, Lead Bookkeeper Job Description
In the past 6 months the Company has seen a lot of growth in the bookkeeping business, with more work inbound. Bookkeeping is the foundation of Financial Situational Awareness. Without accurate, timely, high-quality bookkeeping, it is very costly to acquire Financial Situational Awareness, if not impossible. With the assistance of the Chief Financial Officer (CFO), custom charts of accounts are developed for each customer. Weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annual processes are developed to serve each customer’s business model needs, while striving to maximize process uniformity across all customers.

The Company is seeking to hire an independent contractor (1099) as a Lead Bookkeeper with experience and a desire to assist in building and managing a team of bookkeepers while onboarding new customers. The independent contractor will be provided a Company Google Workspace account and will present themselves as a team member of the Company when communicating with customers. Work will be part time (~10-15 hours per week) to start and is expected to swiftly increase to 20-30 hours per week. The role will continue to increase in hours up to the contractor’s weekly limit at which point, the Company will seek to hire a more Junior Bookkeeper to be trained and managed the Lead Bookkeeper. The Lead Bookkeeper will handle the onboarding of new customers, and assist in the development and optimization of customer-specific business processes and documentation, likely bookkeeping for that customer for the first 3 to 6 months with the Company. Once a new customer’s business process is demonstrably successful and mature and the Lead Bookkeeper has no more bandwidth for additional new customers, the mature customer accounts will be delegated to Junior Bookkeepers to be managed by the Lead Bookkeeper.
