We’re passionate about a few things, such as: working hard with excellence and ingenuity, investing ourselves in our local community, helping small businesses and their owners and employees truly flourish, treating everyone with grace and dignity, and creating a flexible and supportive work environment where families can thrive.

This is a part-time position (15-20 hours per week); an additional 5-10 hours per week may be added on top of the base hours in the short-term as consistency and attention to detail is demonstrated in the role. Longer-term, this role has the potential to go full-time if mutually desired.

  • Pleasant, professional demeanor and excellent verbal/written communication skills
  • Kindly assertive and consistent in following up with clients regarding items due
  • Handles conflict or disappointment with grace and empathy
  • Independent self-starter who exercises appropriate use of supervision

  • Certified Bookkeeper credential
  • Current or former CPA or CPA firm

Compensation & Benefits: 

  • Minimum pay of $25/hour, with potential for higher earnings based on experience 
  • SIMPLE IRA Plan with 3% match
  • Discounts available for life, disability, and supplemental insurance policies

Work Environment:

  • Typically 100% remote; we expect your work schedule will be mainly during business hours (Eastern time zone) and you will need to attend regularly scheduled video meetings regarding client coordination.
  • For local candidates, working part-time in our office in downtown Winchester is an option. 
  • Kind, supportive, and encouraging colleagues and management.
  • Management that prioritizes your career development.
  • Being part of a wonderful team with a strong drive for excellence, hitting our goals, helping others, and building community.

This might be the job for you if:

  • You are passionate about pursuing excellence, while also understanding and actively working to avoid the pitfalls of perfectionism and procrastination.
  • You have been commended by employers, colleagues, and clients for your exceptional attention to detail.
  • You are innately curious and always learning and then applying what you learn.
  • You genuinely care about helping others (clients, colleagues, and our strategic partners) succeed in life, not “getting what’s yours” without regard to the needs of others.
  • New challenges don’t intimidate you, nor does working with other smart, hardworking people.
  • Ambiguity in your work assignments is a positive that frees you up to exercise your independent problem-solving skills, not a negative that causes you unhealthy stress or increases your overall dependency on others.
  • People you work with commend your strong work ethic and positive attitude.
  • You are trustworthy and honest to a fault, and you have an excellent reputation.
  • You want to work for a small business employer and serve small business clients. Enterprise employers and enterprise clients are not what you’re aiming for. 
  • You love bookkeeping and payroll but dislikes tax work.

Our Hiring Process (generally this takes 2-3 weeks): 

  • Submit a resume, cover letter & at least 3 references (current/former employer(s) and/or client references are required; you may also submit one personal reference if you desire). 
  • If we are interested in exploring your candidacy further, we’ll invite you to attend a 1-hour initial interview with our Manager of Accounting Services and Chief of Staff.
  • If everyone still wants to move forward, then we’ll pay for you to take an online assessment (TTI TriMetrix DNA); of course, we will share your results with you. We will also call your references at this point (please let them know we’ll be reaching out).
  • Within 5-7 days of your initial interview, you will attend a one-hour “Company Culture & TTI Debrief” interview with two members of our leadership team.
  • At this point, we’ll take three days to allow everyone a chance to step back and fully process our decision. After those three days, we will reach out to you with our decision.
  • If we decide to offer you the position, you’ll attend a final interview with our CEO and Manager of Accounting Services to discuss details of our offer, our onboarding process, and to answer any final questions you may have.
  • Once you have accepted the offer, we will also send you a background check to complete.
