Virtual Accounting Technician
Do you love the traditional office setting? Do you get excited to jump out of bed in the morning, dress up in stuffy clothes, and battle gridlock traffic to get to work on time? Do paper cuts get you jazzed up? Yawn – us either. Have we peaked your interest? Good, read on.
Maxim Management is a virtual CA firm that has completely adopted the cloud accounting ecosystem. We love apps, innovation and anything that makes our clients’ businesses run smoother. Keeping current with the latest and greatest cutting-edge technology and cloud-based software, we offer a totally virtual experience to our clients, allowing them to conduct business with us from wherever they are.
Our home base is located in a technology incubator in Lethbridge, Alberta, but don’t worry if that’s not in your neck of the woods. We aim to hire the most talented, passionate, and innovative professionals, and we recognize that these rockstars might not all be growing in our own backyard. That’s why we have created a virtual firm, allowing us to cultivate the top talent from across the country.
Are you our next rockstar?
