The Virtual Senior Bookkeeper is a management-level position. The main function will be the management of complex clients in Quickbooks Online and Xero. This position will also be responsible for providing one-on-one support to clients and subordinate bookkeepers while maintaining their own list of clients.

This is a part-time, virtual position for an independent contractor who is available during normal business hours. The position is only open to US-based bookkeepers who are available for occasional conference calls during the workday.

As a manager, the ability to be empathetic, ask the right questions, see the ‘big picture’ and troubleshoot errors are a must. This is not just a bookkeeping position; extraordinary communication skills and strong project management capabilities are required.

This position also demands a strong sense of professionalism, decorum, and discretion. Our final round of candidates will need to pass a skills assessment and will be asked to provide references that can speak to their work ethic and treatment of confidential information.
