Job Overview

OwnerRez is seeking an experienced back-office administrator, comfortable using modern computer technology, who would like to work from home, for a position as Staff Accountant. As a virtual company, all OwnerRez employees work from home, which can be anywhere with a reliable Internet connection and good working environment.

As OwnerRez’ Staff Accountant, you will be responsible for handling all accounting tasks for OwnerRez and affiliated companies. This will include standard accounting data entry; cost accounting and reporting; month and year-end reconciliation and closeout activities; tax and other filings; payroll and benefits analysis and associated paperwork. While OwnerRez is a small company, there is a wide variety of back-office functions that you will be responsible for, not just bookkeeping.

Since OwnerRez is a small, fast-growing tech company, there will be other duties and responsibilities as the company grows and accounting needs change.
