Senior Accountant (CPA)
Company: Runyan + Associates
Posted on: November 9, 2019
We're looking for a CPA to join our team.
Pay: $30 - $45 per hour DOE, plus benefitsHours: 32 - 40 depending
on your wants and needsLocation Requirements: In-person at our
Bozeman officeRemote Capability: Working remotely is available 1 to
2 days each week
We're looking for a client-facing accountant to join us in our
Bozeman office as we focus on our growing niche of advising
business owners and their businesses. Because you'll need to get up
to speed quickly and work directly with clients, you should have at
least five years of accounting experience, be strong in QuickBooks
and tax preparation, and have a current CPA license. Initially,
you'll be working closely with other team members to better
understand our processes and our clients. As you become familiar
with things, you'll be expected to manage your workload on your own
while still asking questions and getting feedback when needed.
On a typical day, you'll be checking in with clients through
Basecamp, reviewing and updating their books in QuickBooks Online
after syncing with ReceiptBank, assisting other staff members with
questions they have, putting together a client's monthly
performance report in Fathom, and maybe even having a one-on-one
session with them in the office or through Hangouts to go over
their monthly performance. Occasionally you'll also help onboard a
new client and get them set up and comfortable with our processes
and technologies (such as transferring their books to QBO).
Occasionally, and especially during tax season, you'll also be
meeting with tax-only clients and helping prepare their tax
We believe in taking care of our staff. In addition to our lower
hours, flexible and limited schedules, and remote capabilities
(you'll be able to work remotely one to two days each week), other
benefits we offer are paid continuing education and licensing fees,
health and dental insurance, a 3% company-matching SIMPLE IRA plan,
eight paid holidays, and paid time off. You'll also be eligible to
participate in our performance-based bonus plans.
We're looking for someone who's ready to do the best work of their
career and become a centerpiece of our firm for the long-term -
without risking their health, sanity, or life outside of work. We
don't buy into the idea that working hard means working late or
working weekends - unless it's by choice. We don't live to work; we
work to live. We don't work 60- or 80-hour weeks during tax season
and we don't work overtime outside of it. We choose to be small
because it allows us to set our own course given what's best for
our clients and ourselves. During tax season, you'll be working up
to 40 hours each week. Outside of tax season, you'll be working 32
- 40 hours per week, depending on your wants and needs.
Our technology stack:
- QuickBooks Online and Desktop
- Lacerte Tax
- Adobe Acrobat
- You'll have to be able to work remotely with clients just as
well as you do in-person. As we continue focusing on our advisory
niche, most of the work you'll be doing will be through the cloud.
You'll still be meeting with clients face-to-face - that just might
mean over Hangouts rather than in the office.
- Your accountability will be based on the results you produce,
not just the hours you work. Our shift to value-pricing is part of
this. We're here to serve our clients and help them grow. Busy-work
doesn't serve anybody.
- We don't have annual performance reviews. If you do a good job
in May, we'll know it in May. If you goof up in August, we aren't
going to wait until December to discuss ways to improve.
- We love technology and we hope you do too. If you love trying
new technology to solve old problems, we might be a good fit.
- We change. A lot. Just because we're doing it a particular way
now doesn't mean we always have to be doing it that way in the
future. As we learn better ways of doing things, we implement new
processes, technology, and ideas.
- We're particular and we're intentional. We say no a lot
(especially to prospective clients) because we know it's the only
way we can successfully serve our clients. We're not for everyone
and we don't want to be.
- Our firm is small and we like it that way. We're in Montana for
a reason and it's not because we want to spend our lives climbing
ladders that lead to nowhere. Being small allows us to enjoy a
philosophy and lifestyle that can be difficult to come by in larger
- Great! Visit for the final details, including how to submit
your resume and cover letter.
