Natural Health Sherpa Charlotte, NC

Excited to work from the comfort of your own home while you tackle the full-spectrum of accounting functions including accounts payable, accounts receivable, account reconciliation, transaction processing, financial statement analysis and related functions?

Eager to join a team of high-performing, yet humble A-players that simply get things done? Excited to be a part a rapidly growing $250 billion+ industry while measurable improving peoples lives?

If so, and youre a seasoned, results-driven, detail-oriented accounting/finance professional with lots of experience working independently and has an incessant drive towards excellence, thrives in a cloud based environment and a get-it-done now mentality, wed love to talk.

To be clear, we are seeking someone who can grow into the role of a Controller... someone with existing staff accounting experience (or limited Controller experience) who has the passion to learn and grow into the role of a Controller. We want to invest in you just as much as you want to invest in us.

Weve posted this role to describe the actual opportunity and the day-to-day responsibilities. To be 100% clear, this involves heavy hands-on transaction processing and reconciliations as well as strategically analyzing existing processes and systems and identifying ways to do things more efficiently.

Were really looking for a seasoned accountant who has made lots of mistakes, has learned from those and mastered the art of executing in an accurate, disciplined, efficient manner.

Who We Are:

We're an 8-figure direct response company that's been profitable since our founding in 2010. Were in the process of re-branding our company to Metabolic Living. As part of this, were launching a branded e-commerce website that more accurately reflects our full suite of products weve developed.

And to help lead us into our next stage of growth, were hiring a hands-on, detail-oriented Senior Staff Accountant to continue building out our small, but highly efficient accounting and finance team. There are a number of exciting opportunities we need a full-time Senior Staff Accountant to be responsible for.

We're riding the $250+ billion annual tidal wave of demand for natural health products. And were positioning our new brand to be right on top of that wave. It is an extremely exciting time for us now.

Our nutrition courses and exercise programs are designed to deliver the most results in the least time. For example, our exercise videos deliver the same or better benefits in just 15 minutes, 3 times a week than do traditional exercise programs that require 60 minutes, 5 times a week. Yes, really.

You can see an example of one of our exercise products at as our e-commerce happens on product-specific websites for now. All e-commerce will happen on as part of the re-branding.

We also formulate state-of-the-art nutritional supplements and functional foods that fuel your metabolism to generate the energy you need to consistently perform at your peak. For example, instead of taking weeks to notice a difference, it takes just days to feel better.

We practice what we preach: our company is designed so everyone both enjoys their work challenges while having plenty of time to do what they love to do the most in their life. We recruit only high-performing, humble people who produce in fast cycles, hold themselves accountable and have fun.
