    • Act as benefits administrator for two local clients.
    • Advise management and the Vice President, Finance on financial analyses and decision-making.
    • Ensure books and records are maintained in accordance with US GAAP standards and oversee the generation of company financial reports.
    • Perform additional controller duties as needed.


    • Education (Degrees, Certificates, Licenses, Etc.):

      • Certified Public Accountant (CPA) required.
    • Computer Skills:
      • Experience with payroll software, MS 365, and strong Excel skills.
      • Proficiency with NetSuite and QuickBooks preferred, or similar systems.
      • Prior experience with HSA, FSA, and 401k plans highly desired.
    • Experience:
      • 5-10+ years of progressive experience in accounting and financial management.
      • Background in public accounting followed by industry experience is ideal.
      • Previous experience as an Assistant Controller or Controller preferred.
