Job Description:

Rapidly growing accounting & bookkeeping firm headquartered in Naperville IL is looking for an executive team member with experience in Accounting and Business management to support the CEO and oversee company operations.
Our firm has 7 offices throughout the US, including 2 recently acquired. The firm will continue to grow nationally in the next year and will require more executive level staff to support growth.
This position will assist the CEO in a multitude of tasks, some working directly with and alongside the executive team, with company employees, and working independently.

This individual will be exposed to all department operations and will be expected to identify areas that require improvement and implement those improvements with staff. Candidate will be expected to manage employees, monitor work, and ensure that all locations are operating cohesively and efficiently. The position will also be required to monitor and track workflow and workload within the firm and ensure that all work is completed in each department and location in addition to monitoring the company's finances.
This is a full time position plus some. Some weeks are expected to exceed 50 hours and travel will be required. However, this position is considered to have a 'homebase' in the Chicago/Naperville area with a main office location in Naperville.
Specific job responsibilities will vary widely from day-to-day and week to week as the firm grows, however will become more routine as operations are streamlined and acquisitions are completed.
Examples of expected tasks are as follows:
Advise, implement and train offices & employees on the company's operating software (training on the software will be provided, this is a user friendly, modern web based operating software that most are able to learn and use with ease)
Coordinate and evaluate software used across offices - monitor useage, costs, effectiveness
Intake and manage HR related issues - mostly related to compensation, pay, attendance, vacation, training, and benefits
Attending to high level customer service issues or advising local staff on how to handle problems
Overseeing new client set up and account maintenance - especially during the onboarding period (will coordinate with the marketing team)
Assisting with marketing initiatives
Overseeing employee and location communications - company newsletters, announcements, training opportunities
Identifying areas of improvement within staff and securing training or other support for the lacking areas
Assisting with company accounting - preparing budgets and reports for the CEO; reviewing profitability of departments, employees and teams; Monitor and review company billings and AR for each office; review monthly expenses and other impact to profitability
Assisting with the preparation of investor reporting and packages
Employee evaluations and reviews
However, this list is not static and because our environment is dynamic, new issues and problems will frequently arise and will require the individual in this position to be able to switch gears and reprioritize based on the needs of the firm.
Our main business is client service. We are committed to providing a high level of service and support to our clients. This means that candidates -must be willing to go the "extra mile" to keep clients happy and make sure clients are satisfied by employee work. Our clients demand and we expect that our people be hard-working, conscientious, communicative and attentive to details. This position requires an individual that can adhere to these principles and enforce these values throughout daily operations with staff.
Compensation will be based upon education and work experience - the salary listed is a starting consideration. We understand that this is a demanding position that requires a smart and tenacious person. Because we are a relatively small company we cannot offer a high level executive salary that larger firms can offer, however; the starting salary will be compensated with the opportunity to earn meaningful equity in the firm over a 3-5 year period. We consider this position not to be just a job but a real opportunity for an individual that is ready to take on a high level job that will result in long term equity, not just a high starting salary.
Potential candidates must have accounting experience and a 4-year College degree. CPA's preferred but not required.
Experience with Microsoft office (i.e.,Word and Excel), good communication skills, and the ability to learn and take direction are all a must.
All interested candidates should reply to this position via email with a resume, which should include a phone number and personal email at which you can be reached.
***Please note that all potential candidates must complete a full job application, undergo a background check, provide references and complete a short test on accounting knowledge ***
