Remote Accountant

Remote Anywhere Vivid Numbers

Who We Are: 

We are a virtual CPA firm serving clients across the US, looking for an Remote Accountant to join our team. We provide a full range of bookkeeping, accounting, tax and consulting services along with financial training. We help a variety of businesses, but our niche is digital entrepreneurs. Tax season isn’t crazy for us (and won’t be crazy for you either) because we are not a tax shop! We don’t take ourselves too seriously and neither should you if you want to be a good fit for this position. But, we are dealing with other people’s money and THAT we take very seriously and expect accuracy and consistency.

Position Description for Remote Accountant:

We are seeking a self-motivated, hopelessly detail-oriented Remote Accountant, with 5+ years of experience who loves working with small business clients.  The position remotely manages the outsourced day-to-day bookkeeping and monthly accounting needs of multiple clients. You must possess a solid understanding of bookkeeping and accounting principles. Client specific training will be provided, but you must be able to problem solve and research solutions for yourself.  Since we are virtual, you must be, too!  Ideally, you live in the Central time zone and have experience working remotely.  We’re looking for someone to work with us full-time, a minimum of 35 hrs per week.  Regular team meetings are conducted via Zoom – if you live close enough to meet with the team in person, all the better!
