WHO WE ARE:
﴿ Recognized by Startup City Magazine among 10 Best Consultant Startups 2016.
﴿ Recognized by Silicon India Magazine among 10 Most Promising Financial Consultants 2018.
We are a boutique consulting firm with a team size of 17. The team consists of financial and analytics experts with a very strong academic background and varied industry experiences.
We help our clients understand the dynamics of a fast-changing environment and adapt themselves towards the most efficient business processes to delight their customers. We devise ways for our clients to evolve and grow in competitive environments. We have a very high level of ethical and moral commitment in all our business practices and robust corporate governance.
WHAT YOU WILL DO:
As Client Accounting Services Manager, you will:
1. Manage the onboarding process for new clients:
You will work closely with new clients to develop a clear understanding of their needs. You will design their service plan and set up efficient and effective bookkeeping workflows.
2. Oversee services for a portfolio of clients:
You will supervise a team of bookkeepers to ensure each client's needs are met on an ongoing basis. You will serve as the primary point of contact for the client and help with any requests that go beyond the abilities of the bookkeepers you supervise. Often this means acting as an outsourced CFO or Controller for the client.
Note: You may occasionally be asked to help with related work in other areas of the business.
We are a fast-growing startup, so from time to time, we ask everyone to help out with projects beyond their normal range of responsibilities.
YOU MIGHT BE A GOOD FIT IF YOU ARE:
EXPERIENCED. We need an accountant who has handled the accounting for multiple different small businesses and/or non-profits (either working within the organization or in an accounting/bookkeeping firm). The ideal candidate may have had titles like VP Finance, Accounting Manager, Controller, Full Charge Bookkeeper, Senior Accountant, etc. Management experience is very valuable for this role. However, candidates should also have some experience working directly in QuickBooks/Xero/Zoho.
KNOWLEDGEABLE. You must have an excellent understanding of accounting & bookkeeping best practices. The ideal candidate has a degree in accounting or a closely related field such as finance, business, or economics, though this isn't strictly required. Being a CPA is a plus, but not required. The same goes for being a ProAdvisor.
HIGHLY ORGANIZED. You need to juggle multiple clients with different services and coordinate the work of a diverse team of bookkeepers. This requires exceptional organizational, time management, and project management skills.
GREAT AT BUILDING STRONG, PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS. You are the primary contact for a set of clients. It's important that you establish a personal rapport with the clients. More than just a bookkeeper, the goal in this position is to become a trusted advisor to each client. This takes relationship-building skills and a friendly, outgoing attitude.
DETAIL-ORIENTED. Clients judge us a lot by our accuracy and precision. The ideal candidate hates making mistakes and is extremely detail-oriented.
A great communicator. As the face of JaZaa to the client, you should have excellent professional communication skills. You will need to be perfectly fluent in English (both written and spoken).
TECH SAVVY. You will need to be adept with computers and good at figuring out new systems and tools. Excel expertise is preferred. QuickBooks Online and/or Desktop experience is required. Experience with other accounting software, such as Xero, Intacct, or Sage, is not required but would definitely be a big plus.
AN ADAPTABLE, FAST LEARNER. Every client has a different set of software, processes, requirements, etc., so each new client is a learning experience. We need someone who feels very comfortable diving in and figuring things out independently (though there will always be people who can help!). If you are at your happiest maintaining a well-established process that someone else designed, it might not be the ideal
role for you. If you love looking for creative solutions to new problems all the time, we want you!
EVEN-KEELED. You will need to be able to handle a large variety of clients at once, including all sorts of personalities. Some clients may be demanding and require a lot of communication. Some may have unreasonable expectations that need to be adjusted. You will need to be able to keep calm and collected no matter what curveballs the clients throw at you. (With that said, we will be here to back you up and support you if they get out of hand.)
