TL;DR: Accounting is looking for a virtual tax and accounting associate to join our growing remote team. We specialize in working with therapy practices, and small business owners providing tax and accounting services.

As a Tax and Accounting Associate at TL;DR, you will be learning to provide year-round support for clients with taxes, bookkeeping, and quarterly estimates.

We are a results-based work environment and will be held accountable to Key Performance Metrics that measure your value to our clients. Some examples are the turnaround time of client questions, deliverable quality, and contributing to firm-wide projects.

  • Prefer ditching the commute to work remotely
  • Want to learn both tax and accounting work
  • Are interested in working with small business owners
  • Willingness to learn

  • Comfortable collaborating virtually as part of a remote yet cohesive team
  • Willingness to work on your EA (Enrolled Agent exam) or CPA license within your first year
  • You have excellent organizational skills, are self-motivated, and detailed-oriented 
  • You are excited to learn new skills and stay on top of continuing education

More Details about This Role:

  • Access to your own wifi and cell phone are required.
  • This is a remote position so being able to work virtually is important.
  • Availability to work from 10 am to 1 pm PST for meetings.
  • Traveling once a year to Seattle, WA for our firm retreat.

  • Compensation: Salary $50,000 to $54,000, bonus compensation structure on top of base salary, Retirement Plan, PTO & Sick Time
