Accountant at ZURB

Wanted: An Accountant who can crush it with numbers



About the position

You're passionate about numbers, excel at spreadsheets and can crunch calculations like nobody's business. You like to make things add up with both the finances and the Team.

Who we are

We're a team of driven product designers, engineers and writers who are great at rapid prototyping, multi-device design and teaching people how to design. We've been around since 1998, creating world-class products that hundreds of millions of people actually use. We believe Design, with a capital "D", can change the world, and we ensure it does. We need your help to establish our accounting practices with our remote team to our internal office.

We're looking for someone with a diverse background in accounting, who isn't afraid to work in a scrappy environment. You might start your day shuffling through vendor invoices and ensure that they get paid then switch to making sure the Team also gets paid. You'll enjoy lunch with your fellow ZURBians, chatting about everything from the latest memes to the last movie you watched. You might finish your day filling out expense reports for those ZURBians going out of town for client meetings or speaking events. You'll work closely with Rene, our Controller, who'll coach you to get wins for yourself and the Team.

You'll go home knowing that you made a lot of things happen to keep our ship steady and a float.
