Job Summary

To keep up with the growth of our business and ensure we make the best first impression with new clients, we are forming a ‘dream team’ of onboarders. Our onboarding team members work exclusively with new clients to ensure a smooth transition from onboarding to ongoing accounting services. This role is very client-facing and a perfect fit for that extroverted accountant that likes to interact with people. This role will involve working exclusively with new clients to ensure a smooth transition from onboarding to ongoing accounting services.

Our new clients have differing accounting situations. In some cases, we are replacing another outsourced accounting firm. In other cases, we are replacing an in-house finance director or CFO.

A successful candidate will be a task-master with strong project management skills. They must be able to work well under pressure and, at all times, focus on client service. Tech-savviness is non-negotiable.

The onboarding associates themselves are responsible for facilitating the onboarding process for multiple clients at any given time.

Advanced accounting knowledge, comfortability with technology and software, and strong interpersonal skills are considered a necessity for this role. The candidate must be willing to invest time and energy into assessing a new client’s accounting system and requirements, providing instruction on how to best clean-up account balances, designing optimal accounting processes, and generally ensuring that team members are providing the best possible client service.
