Job Description
Hi there!

We are actively looking to add a Staff Accountant to our ranks!  We're an established health club chain headquartered in the Central Valley and with reopening upon us are getting our accounting team back up to full strength. Our ideal candidate is someone with excellent reconciliation skills who has an adaptability trait (we just had a corporate restructure and are handling quite a bit of change right now).

Please keep in mind this position will be 100% remote although we would prefer someone semi-local to maybe someday meet face to face (we aren't anticipating any sort of in-person activities for the next year at least).

The Accountant reports to the Sr. VP, Accounting, Treasury & Procurement and is a significant contributor to the accuracy and efficiency of the financial reporting process. This individual will be responsible for reviewing accounting functions and financial statements in a timely fashion. The ideal candidate will be a self-motivated individual who can grow and adapt to our evolving company.
