General Ledger Accountant
Your daily mission: Make sure our financial foundation is as strong as our coffee!
WHO ARE WE?
We make coffee. More specifically, we make deep, dark, delicious coffee. And we’ve done it for over 20 years.
It’s exceptional tasting coffee. And that could be why we’re Canada’s #1 selling Whole Bean coffee. But it could also be because all our coffee is Organic. And all our coffee is Fairtrade. And it’s all roasted right in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. It could also be because our customers are loyal, fervent and demand goodness in every cup.
And it’s not just our coffee that’s good. We’ve been named the Best Workplace in Canada by Great Place to Work for 2018! Our Kick Ass blend was named Canada’s Fairtrade Product of the Year in 2016. We know how to work hard and have fun. And we think we’re just getting started.
We believe great coffee is the answer to many things. But our question to the world is, “How will you wake up with us?”
WHO ARE YOU?
Some people dream in colour, some dream in black and white. You? You dream in numbers. You’re meticulous. We’re talking fine-toothed-comb fastidious; not even the tiniest detail gets past you unnoticed. You’re organized, efficient and methodical. Solving puzzles revs your engine. Shying away from a challenge isn’t your style. You pop open an excel sheet, rub your hands together with glee and say, “giddy up!”
WHAT WILL YOU DO?
Defender of accurate data, you will make sure our general ledger is balanced, that all money is where it needs to be and that our foundation for financial reporting is rock solid.
