Accounting Manager - SaaS

We have a great opportunity at Burkland Associates and we’re excited to meet our future client-facing Accounting Manager with a background in SaaS!

About Us

Burkland’s core purpose is to Accelerate Dreams. So often, turning dreams into reality helps change the world. We thrive at the forefront of this transformation. Startups desire our professionals — they are the best in the business. Startups seek our content — we are an industry thought leader. Startups trust our expertise, so founders can focus on their companies, products and value-add. As a part of our demonstrated value, our clients raised over $1B just last year.

At Burkland, we lead with our Core Purpose. We do this for both our clients and our employees. We believe that leaning on our Core Values (Fresh Perspectives, Exponential Value, Empathy, Trusted Partner) will lead to happy clients and happy employees.

We are a remote-first company with over 150 incredible team members, more than 500 clients, and a commitment to Accelerating Dreams.

The Role

  • This role is designed to support our startup clients who need accounting + bookkeeping help but may not have a need for an internal team at their growth stage (usually we work with Seed through Series C clients).
  • We are a remote-first company, so this is a fully remote role.
  • This role has variety at its core. From facilitating client meetings to reconciling accounts, no day will be a “typical day”.
  • You’ll be working with a variety of clients, so the ability to context shift, communicate, prioritize and evaluate needs is the most important thing you’ll be doing in this role.
  • You’ll be managing the entire accounting function for our clients, so you’ll want to have a background in management – whether that’s a function or a team, or both!
  • You’ll have the opportunity to build out robust accounting processes and systems for our clients. So understanding + embracing the agile and scrappy nature of startups is pretty much a must.

About You

  • You are a communicator. Impeccable written and verbal communication is critical since this is the cornerstone of the role.
  • You thrive in a fast-paced, dynamic environment. Bonus points for client or customer experience.
  • You’re a self-starter; you don’t need someone looking over your shoulder to get your work done, and know how to manage your time effectively.
  • You are an expert collaborator. You ask for and give feedback regularly. You enjoy working with others and are excited to operate as a team.
  • You know and love technology. You possess a strong working knowledge of a variety of software and enjoy learning how to navigate through new software.
  • You’re pals with GAAP.
  • You have a Bachelor’s degree in business, accounting, finance, or something similar, and 3-5 years of experience, preferably in a startup environment.

Responsibilities

  • Your day-to-day responsibilities are all things accounting + client management. For example, you should be able to work through client requests involving repaid revenue/deferred revenue + revenue recognition, inventory and purchase orders, prepaid expenses, payment processing systems (like Stripe), creating and managing monthly close lists, producing tax ready end of year reports, processing accounts payable and accounts receivable, producing financial reports, and GL account reconciliations.
  • Strong working knowledge of software is key in this role! On a daily basis, you’ll be using Quickbooks online, Bill.com, Expensify + Concur. You’ll also be using Zoom and other video conferencing tools to facilitate client meetings.
  • Additional responsibilities can include software implementations and integrations, working with 3rd party Subscription management tools (SaaSoptics, Chargebee) and E-commerce platforms like Shopify and Amazon.

What we Offer

  • Flexible work schedule to promote a healthy work-life balance.
  • Medical, Dental & Vision Insurance for you and your dependents.
  • Short & Long Term Disability Insurance to support you when you need it the most.
  • Flexible PTO – Take time off from work when you need it.
  • 401k with a company match to ensure you are ready for retirement.
  • A generous home office expense reimbursement so you have the office you need to be productive.
  • Forget the commute! We’re a remote-first workplace, so you can work from your home office or from the beach if you’d like!
  • We offer a collaborative, communicative culture, driven by our Core Purpose + Values. We work with incredibly smart people who love to learn and share what they know. If this sounds like a team you’d like to be a part of, we’d love to hear from you.
