Job description and what you’ll do:

We’re looking for an early-career Accountant to administer IN3’s accounting system (Deltek Costpoint) and all of the corresponding processes that go along with it. The ideal candidate has experience as an Accounting Generalist that has touched on all aspects of the Accounting workflow… and likes them all. We’re a start-up and growing… so you have to be open minded. But so are we… we’re very flexible based on your interests. Want to get involved in some IT stuff? Great! Interested in Project Management? We can think about that too. Plus, there’s going to be plenty of room to grow with us… so if you’re a motivated person that is interested in working in a fast-paced environment, this is the job for you.

Who you are/what you have:

  • You have at least basic experience and are comfortable with all aspects of the Accounting cycle: entry, billing, analysis, reporting, basic cash management/banking skills, timekeeping. Our PEO takes care of payroll, so you won’t have that on your plate! If you can do all of this in Deltek Costpoint, all the better. But, be ready to tell us about the systems you’ve worked if we get to an interview.
  • You have at least some knowledge of government cost accounting and how to appropriately financially administer government agreements of all types.
  • You’re very detail oriented and process-focused… a procedure is written and you stick to it. But, you’re wise enough to know when a procedure isn’t working… and make recommednations to fix it.
  • You like people and are great at communicating.
  • You’re an Excel wizard and like the data analytics side of the business.
