Job Description

We’re on a roll so we’re hiring! And if you give a “sheet” about paper then that’s a great start (especially if you can tolerate other tearable puns). Case Paper is a family-owned business that is renowned for its commitment to extreme customer satisfaction. We’re literally and figuratively “On the Case” and have been for 78+ years.

Case Paper is one of the largest privately held distributors and converters of paper and board for the printing and packaging industries. We’re not talking copier paper (think more about paper used for signage, brochures, or direct mail) and not the cardboard that carries your Amazon Prime orders (our products are used more for packaging cosmetics, food, technology, and cannabis to name a few). Our core values are (1) Flexible, (2) Own It, (3) Reputation Matters, (4) Teamwork and (5) Humor. It’s easy to remember if you’re a Star Wars fan…may the “F.O.R.T.H.” be with you! We are always looking for those who can aspire to improve our workplace atmosphere through honest hard work, a great attitude, a little bit of curiosity, and a big sense of humor.

We’re adding a new role to our team here: Staff Accountant! What exactly does this position entail, you ask? Well, in addition to the standard battery of magic tricks and superhuman feats that we expect of all our teammates, this position will have primary responsibility to maintain financial procedures and confirming financial compliance through preparation of a company’s reports and statement. Duties include confirming compliance with IRS rules, reconciling bank statements and balancing the ledger for regular reports. If that’s not specific enough for you, try this list on for size:

  • Review financial statements for accuracy and legal compliance
  • Assist in budget preparation
  • Prepare and file tax returns
  • Enter accounting related information into business logs
  • Inspect account books for efficiency and accuracy
  • Organize and update financial records
  • Recommend ways to reduce costs and enhance revenue
  • Perform monthly bank settlements
  • Prepare documentation for external auditors

Do you have what it takes?

We’re looking for a teammate with at least 3-5 years of relevant work experience in finance operations. It would be super if you had experience in a manufacturing environment and even better if you have worked in paper, packaging, or print. We’d love it if you’ve had previous management or leadership positions. This work experience will give you a baseline understanding of the manufacturing process that you can apply to this position.

You’ll impress us if you have a college degree in related field (finance, accounting, business management, industrial/mechanical engineering, statistics/mathematics, etc.) -OR- if you have commensurate work experience in related discipline(s) and/or relevant certifications. Your background should provide you the tools and ideas you need to be successful in a highly analytical and detail-oriented role. While this is a high-level contributor position, we value the hard work, experience, curiosity, and best practices you can bring from other positions and workplaces, with or without the formal education.

The knowledge you have learned from training and workplace experiences is important, but as Shinichi Suzuki once said, “Knowledge is not a skill. Knowledge plus ten thousand times is a skill.” Here are some things we hope you have done ten thousand times or so to become skilled among other requirements:

  • Bachelor’s degree in accounting or finance required
  • At least two years’ experience in accounting or a related field
  • Strong mathematical and analytical skills
  • Proficient in Microsoft Word and Excel
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills
  • Proven ability to handle multiple projects simultaneously
  • Ability to read and analyze financial reports
  • Strong understanding of US tax regulations
  • A good sense of humor

All Sound Good? Here is the Silver Lining

At Case Paper, we value diversity and welcome all qualified applicants, regardless of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender, national origin, disability, age, pregnancy, family status. In addition to a competitive salary, we offer 401(k), paid holidays, vacation, personal time, and sick leave, as well as multiple options for medical and dental insurance. We also offer optional life, short-term disability, long-term disability, and accident insurance. But most important, you’ll have a chance to make awesome products and work with fantastic people who are great at what they do!
