We also need someone with well-honed, professional communication and organizational skills who will be comfortable making direct contact with our tenants and vendors in a professional manner and with a high degree of integrity and responsibility, acting on behalf of the business as if it were their own.

  • Demonstrable knowledge and experience in applying Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) and financial/tax reporting.

  • Customer service oriented

  • Highly professional written and verbal communication in making direct contact with tenants and vendors

  • Efficient time management

  • Impeccable documentation and record-keeping 

  • Epic attention to detail

  • Comfortable working independently as well as part of a team

  • The ability to adhere strictly to policies and procedures for handling confidential documentation and information.

  • A successful track record in setting priorities; keen analytic, organization, and problem-solving skills to support and enable sound decision-making.

  • Ability to think critically and creatively.

  • Some exposure to real estate business, project management, general contracting, and/or property management is preferred 

  • Familiarity with other software tools such as Bill.com, Asana, and Pipedrive

As Bookkeeper, your primary responsibilities will include: 

  • Owner of overall bookkeeping and accounting process

  • GL, AR, AP, financial reporting

  • Handle accounting-related mail and deposits 

  • Liaise with tenants and vendors for AR and AP-related communications 

  • Manage collection/reconciliation of rent and security deposits

  • Manage payment of vendor invoices 

  • Monitor credit/debt 

  • Work with the CFO and CEO for monthly budget review and financial reporting 

  • Manage renewals of city business licenses & related records

  • Prepare financials for annual tax filings 

  • Work from home (Pacific Time zone preferred)

  • Manage to “perfect data” using and updating our project management, CRM, internal documentation, and other systems on an ongoing basis
