Job Description

We are looking for an ambitious Accounting Manager with a detail-oriented approach and an eye for process improvement. In this role, you will collaborate with our outsourced accounting team to maintain and improve our invoicing, collections, vendor management, and monthly close processes. You will work closely with the Chief of Staff to update actuals and inform assumptions for the financial forecast. Experience with accounting and/or finance at a SaaS Company preferred.

Who are we:

A Human-First organization that is passionate about creating the fastest and lowest-cost path to decarbonize buildings. Real estate is the single largest contributor to carbon emissions, with buildings and construction generating nearly 40% of global carbon emissions. As the wave of sustainability incentives and requirements sweep across the US and the world, buildings are going to be right in the middle of decarbonizing, and it’s happening now. 

Last year we helped our clients save over 23,000 tons of CO2, which is the equivalent of taking over 13,000 cars off the road. Unlike our competitors, we require no new sensors, and no equipment upgrades. On average we see an 11% reduction in CO2 emissions for our clients. We are serving clients in 10 markets, including Canada, and serve some of the biggest brands in the market, including Empire State Realty Trust and Silverstein Properties.
