  • Process payroll to keep happy employees.
  • Perform bank reconciliations so we know everything is captured.
  • Reconcile and maintain balance sheet accounts so the balance sheet doesn’t become a black hole of unknown balances.
  • Work with your manager on the client’s budget and cash flow.
  • Prepare monthly financial packets with assistance from a manager and present the packet to your clients – they will love you for this.
  • Maintain organized digital files – a messy Dropbox is a messy employee.

  • Eligibility for health, dental, and life insurance
  • 401k plan available with 3% company profit sharing
