We offer rewarding, part-time, virtual bookkeeping jobs in Canada to certified bookkeepers.

Current Status as of May 1, 2019:

  • We are looking for a 25-40 hour a week bookkeeper certified in Quickbooks and/or Xero.

We are a well-managed company with good clients and you can expect coaching and support from your manager, Jonathan.  Jonathan is a former Procter & Gamble Brand Manager with extensive training and experience in managing teams.

He's been managing a virtual team of marketers for 10 years with Strategy Cube, his other company. You can read about Jonathan on his LinkedIn and Strategy Cube pages. We are based in Burlington, ON.

Our team of bookkeepers tell me they appreciate:

  • Being part of a team for support and encouragement
  • The flexibility of the role which allows them to take care of their families and still enjoy meaningful work and build their careers
  • The quality of the clients we attract and the rewarding feeling of building good relationships with them over time
  • The ability to get help from a CGA on our team for difficult problems
  • The coaching and support I provide
  • That we use state of the art software tools that they find efficient and useful

Details of the role:

  • You would be doing general bookkeeping including monthly reconciliations, sales tax management, payroll, invoicing and bill payment.
  • This role will start at 10-20 hours per week and could grow to 25-40 hours per week within 1-2 months based on how fast you want to ramp up.
  • We only use Xero and QuickBooksOnline for accounting.
  • You need to be comfortable learning new software quickly. In addition to the above, we use HubDoc, Plooto, Wagepoint, Harvest, Asana, Slack and Zoom but there are new tools coming out on a regular basis and we will always want to help our clients use the latest and best tools.
