Director of Accounting

Overview:

Director of Accounting is a pretty cool title. We’re looking for a pretty cool person who isn’t hung up on a title but more hung up on understanding the core functions of the business and how the numbers make the business run. We also want this person to mentor and lead a team that uses these numbers to power the business and strategic decision making to propel the company forward. It’s a big job. Leadership will lean on you to help identify and prioritize improvements from a financial operations perspective and drive these priorities forward.

Who are you and what have you done before? You’re a seasoned professional who has experience in hyper growth verticals and understand the impact that proper financial strategy planning can have on a company. You’ve had to make pretty big financial decisions in past roles and been able to explain the why. You’ll be responsible for ensuring Corporate Tools has effective, efficient and ever improving accounting operations. You’ll oversee a few departments and be accountable for the work done, but really, we look for leaders who come alongside their team with a teaching mindset verses a command and control mindset.

Corporate Tools is located in Post Falls, Idaho and while we support regular work from home opportunities, our expectation is that this role works in office at least 2-3 days/week. Why? Because we believe it’s important that our leaders are building relationships and collaborating with not just their team but other teams and departments as well. We know that some of this can transpire virtually, but we find it’s done best with regular face to face interactions.

Why you might like this job:

You have a deep desire and genuine interest in understanding what turned the main cog, but more importantly, what will keep it turning in the future. You see the numbers like others see words on paper and can see the big vision but understand where to break the numbers down to implement your strategy. You implement change, process, and consistency through human motivation, mentorship, and continually building up the army around you. You may be the technical lead on how accounting works, but your real desire is to build an army that uses numbers to power the business.

Not a lot of fancy titles to make you feel good, and no one here will know what your title is or really care. You’ll be an important, valuable member of our team, just like all of our employees. It’s your chance for a transparent job where you can do what you’ve wanted to do; unmicromanaged. The sky is the limit to what you could do here. But the work itself will have to motivate you and be what makes you tick.
