The organization has a corporate culture that seeks to empower employees with challenging endeavors and works best with those possessing an optimistic and positive mindset. Leadership cares deeply about team culture and working within a collaborative, flexible team environment. They also love technology and regularly adopt/experiment with new forms of tech to streamline communication and operations. The position requires prior construction accounting experience ( ideally in homebuilding and commercial).

This could be an excellent fit for a mid to senior-level Account or Bookkeeper seeking to grow into a role that they could make their own.
