  • Using your excellent analytical and numerical reasoning skills to create and analyze financial reports for clients, including P&L, GL Detail, Balance Sheet, AP and AR Aging, etc.
  • Leveraging your passion for helping others, accounting, customer service, and solving problems to handle critical accounting functions for multiple clients
  • Demonstrating your enthusiasm for technology to increase efficiencies to increase our internal efficiencies and deliver added value to our clients

Requirements
