  • What we’re looking for:
  • You have 3-5 years of experience working in a corporate accounting department, start-up background a plus
  • You’re a master of Quickbooks and/or Sage accounting software, and Google Sheets or Microsoft Excel is your best friend
  • You’re a superb collaborator and communicator, and you thrive working in cross-functional groups coming from a range of backgrounds
  • You are a relentless prioritizer and organizer
  • You have a proven ability to identify and drive process and system improvements
  • You flourish in fast-paced and ambiguous environments and are always willing to roll-up your sleeves to get things done
  • You can adapt to new tasks and responsibilities as the business grows and changes
  • ABOUT SPRUCE Spruce is the platform that enables fast, frictionless, and transparent real estate transactions across the country. We believe the future of real estate will be driven by automation and empowering homeowners, so our mission is to make real estate transactions amazing for everyone involved in the process. As a small, ambitious startup there is lots to do, of course, but everyone at Spruce is passionate about supporting each other and making the office a fun and comfortable place to spend time. Located in Flatiron, our dog- and family-friendly office is bright and sunny – just like our disposition.
