We love construction. We love accounting. We make people’s lives easier by customizing their accounting software so that they can run their construction companies better.
Here’s what you get:
80k – 110k starting wage depending on experience & certification(s).
2 weeks paid time off per year, plus holidays. You can’t just work all the time.
The work is fun, fresh and dynamic. You will be working directly for our founder, Michael, and helping him with a mix of projects and support.
We aren’t big on stress. So, while we will expect you to work efficiently and get things done, we focus on open communication and getting things done right the first go around.
After 90 days you can open a retirement account and we’ll match your contribution up to 3%.
After 90 days you will also be eligible for health insurance.
Once you’re comfortable with your tasks, you will have the flexibility to work remotely some of the time, or even take working vacations.
After a year here, you get a share of the profits. That means the hard work you put into making the company succeed gets rewarded with cold hard cash.
After 2 years of loyal service, you get an additional 2 weeks of paid vacation per year, but it comes with a catch! It’s not optional and you must take it consecutively without access to email (seriously!). We call this the Intermission and it helps us strengthen our internal processes just as much as it helps you relax and unwind.
Here’s what the job duties entail:
A Keeper of the Books at Silvertrek is responsible for management-only financial statements for our customers. While we do not provide reviewed or audited financials, our CPAs/Accountants provide meaningful monthly financials to our construction clients.
In addition to the “real” accounting work, you will also be heading up our nascent accounting support team, and helping our customers get unstuck. This will be done in conjunction with an ad-hock team from across the company, including IT staff, developers, and experienced accountants.
Managing a small team of Junior Accountants (we call ‘em “Scribes”) to help get the day-to-day work done.
Note: Since we work with construction using Vista by Viewpoint, please highlight in your cover letter any construction-related accounting you’ve done, and if you have any experience with the software.
Here’s what we expect from you:
You need to be the type of person who gets joy out of getting things done. Every day there is a lot to do. Fun stuff. Important stuff. Necessary stuff.
You will be on the phone a lot. So, you need to enjoy talking with people and giving/getting direction
You need to nail down the details. You don’t need to race through work and get things done half-assed (Michael could do that). We need you to slow things down and get them done right.
You need to be a person who loves to deliver remarkable experiences to other people. You know, you need to be someone who feels good by making other people feel good.
Our office is casual, but we do expect professionalism and punctuality
Ultimately, your job will be to help the entire team in any way you can.
We automate systems for our customers using a wide range of technologies. Most of these projects involve Vista by Viewpoint. To learn more about us, check out https://silvertrek.net
In addition to being a detailed person, you must follow systems and processes. In fact, just to prove that you are detailed oriented and can follow procedures when you apply for this position in the subject line of the email you must include “I’m ready to join the trek!” in the subject line. Yep, that’s our little trick to sort out the people who blanket send their resume to anyone and everyone, from the folks (that’s you) who are truly interested in this position.
We are looking to bring our new colleague on board as soon as possible, but we will spend the necessary time to find the best fit both in abilities and culturally. One thing that will give you a BIG leg up (but is optional) is to send a quick video in along with your resume. In your video tell us why you think you’re perfect for this job and why you will be perfect for this position. This is purely for us to get a sense of your personality. And if you decide not to send a video (that’s ok), please tell us why you chose not to send in a video.
