The Role

We are looking for a dynamic + strategic teammate at Burkland. If you have a background in accounting and a passion for helping venture-backed consumer startups succeed, Burkland is a wonderful fit for you!

Your Typical, Atypical, Day

  • This role has variety at its core. From facilitating client meetings to reconciling accounts, no day will be a “typical day” (hence the typical, atypical day).
  • You will be supporting our startup clients who need accounting help but may not have a need for an internal team at their growth stage (usually we work with Seed through Series C clients). So, there is always a lot of work to be done!
  • You will be working in a fully remote capacity! So, whether you’re in pajama pants and a button-down or taking calls at the coffee shop down the street, you design where and how you work each 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 have the opportunity to build 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 have a degree or certification in business, accounting, finance, or something similar, or over 3 years of current experience in the field. Bonus points if those years are in a multi-client environment!
  • You are a strong communicator, with impeccable written and verbal communication skills.
  • You are detail-oriented and take pride in executing flawless work.
  • You desire to exceed customer needs and response time.
  • You are an expert collaborator and enjoy working with others.
  • You possess a strong working knowledge of a variety of software and enjoy learning how to navigate through new software.
