Director of Accounting
Maybe you’re a bookkeeper/accountant who’s interested in a lot more than debits and credits. Who has 7–10 years or more of accounting experience and is an arts aficionado. Who watches cash flow like a hawk, and also loves sports. Who gets the billing out on the first day of the month and then goes home to create a world-class chicken cacciatore. Ring a bell? Then you’re our kind of bookkeeper/accountant. Our industry (marketing) is dynamic, our company is stable, our team is gold medal worthy, and our accountant is retiring after 22 years (obviously, he liked it here; you will too). If you’re dependable, trustworthy, and run mini-marathons, send your resume to firstname.lastname@example.org. Only kidding about the mini-marathons, but you get the idea.
