Position: Accounting Manager & Fractional CFO
Have you ever worked for an accounting firm that has embedded the values of independence, flexibility, life design, and human connection within its very DNA? We hadn’t either, so we created a firm that is more human than institution. We created a firm that doesn’t treat you as an indentured servant, chained to a desk until you meet your billable hours requirement. We created a firm that puts you in front of the client, not in a back office. We created a firm that says your office is wherever you can get WiFi. We created a firm that doesn’t put a ceiling on what you can earn (see last paragraph!). If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, we have an unparalleled opportunity to run your own book without the complication, stress and liability of starting your own company. Keep reading.
But first, a little about us. Dark horses are not well known by their competition and are often overlooked. Armed with unshakeable confidence and unparalleled drive, the Dark Horse blazes a path in front of its competitors exposing them as helplessly unprepared. We named our firm after the Dark Horse because the Dark Horse company (or individual) is our client and our team is comprised of those who embody its trailblazing spirit. We are looking to grow this team (obviously, or else you wouldn’t be reading this!) and have an exciting opportunity for the right candidate.
Highly qualified candidates possess the following:
- Active CPA license
- 5+ years of experience in financial accounting with 2+ years of Public Accounting experience
- Experience in tax preparation and planning for businesses, trusts/estates and/or individuals
- Proficiency in all Microsoft Office products
- Technological aptitude and ease in working in virtual environments (i.e. Zoom meetings)
- High degree of social awareness, authenticity and ability to quickly build trust and rapport
- Alignment with our mission & values
A bit of housekeeping: we cannot stress enough the importance of acquiring talent that is aligned with who we are and how we do business. If you’re just looking for a job, save yourself the effort, as we are only looking for candidates who can articulate why they believe they would be a great fit. To that end, if the subject line of your correspondence to us is anything other than, “My name is (insert name) and I Want to Work at Dark Horse!” you will not hear back from us.
Back to the fun stuff. One of the ways we are setting ourselves apart is through a compensation plan that is more akin to ownership than that of an employee. Your first-year comp plan would be a combination of salary and commission (commissions are based on revenue earned via your services). For the right candidate, this will be a $100K job in year one and go up from there. The aim of this first year is to get you acclimated and to fill your book of business. At your one-year anniversary, you will be eligible to apply to our Proprietorship Program where you will earn the majority of the profit generated for the company (think limitless earning potential), have the ability to build a team to support you and even be eligible to earn equity awards. You’re going to need to be a trailblazer to be the first person hired into this program. Do you have what it takes? Are you ready for this?! We look forward to hearing all about you.
