Accounting Associate

Maybe you’re bored and need a new challenge. Or your employer doesn’t really leverage your knowledge and skills. Whatever the reason, we want you to know that LT is different. And not just air quotes “different,” but more like “breathing easy for the first time in a long time” different. 

It’s a place where you can write your own story and make a difference along the way. At LT, you’ll have the freedom and flexibility to do what you think needs to be done, and you’ll get to do it while working alongside a team of other curious individuals who love a good challenge too. 

We’re currently looking to add an Accounting Associate to this club of ours. Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to take over the day-to-day accounting activities within LT, including service invoicing, bookkeeping, payroll, financial reporting, and improving accounting operations. How do you know if you’re successful in this mission? It’s simple, we’ve set some mission objectives for you to work towards below:

  • “No Vacation Policy” Vacation Policy. If you need time off, you take it. It’s as simple as that.
  • Professional Development Led By You. We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to – well, anything really – but especially not when it comes to your own learning. We’ll work with you to set goals and then help you work toward ‘em.
