We’re the premier, remote accounting, tax, and consulting firm built exclusively to serve the craft brewing industry.

Our mission is to help craft breweries grow profits and build deep successful relationships. And our team is filled with expert, autonomous, adaptable, technology-driven high performers.

Are you up for the challenge?

We're looking for a full-time, remote Brewery Accountant to join our specialized team. The main objective of this role is to lead our outsourced accounting engagements in accordance with the SBS Core Values.


About The Role

This role will report to our Brewery Accounting Manager and is accountable for fulfilling the following responsibilities:

  • Accounting service delivery for our brewery clients. In the primary function of this role, you’ll work hand-in-hand with our brewery clients and your Accounting Team members to ensure their books are up to date, reconciled, and closed each month. Because breweries involve a complex set of sales, manufacturing, and general business transactions, this process requires a deep technical proficiency and comfort with process and technology.
  • Client account management. Beyond the technical execution of the accounting work, you’ll also act as the main point of contact for each of your clients and be responsible for ensuring the relationship is healthy. This involves setting an effective cadence of communication, establishing excellent working relationships with key contacts within the brewery, and ensuring the client adheres to our processes and recommendations.
  • Support your Tax and Consulting teammates. Additionally, you’ll be responsible both for supporting the annual tax return filing process, as well as providing financial and operational insights to the Consulting Team so they can effectively advise our clients.
  • Participate and contribute to the overall success of our team. Each week the team meets to share wins, progress, and knowledge, as well as identify and solve issues at multiple levels (company, team, individual). Your full participation in this process is critical to ensure that we are operating as a cohesive, high-performance unit.

About You

We’re looking for an individual who:

  • Has the technical chops. You’ve got the fundamentals covered. Integrations with QBO? Got it. Payroll accruals? No problem. Inventory reconciliation? In your sleep. Chart of accounts re-organization? Easy-peasy.
  • Can effectively solve problems. When a sync breaks, rogue inventory transactions appear, or a clients sales tax filing portal goes down... you keep a level head, get to the root cause quickly, and use the resources at your disposal to get the job done.
  • Is a skilled communicator. You can translate your accounting-speak into clear, straightforward communication, can manage scope and negotiate boundaries, and can just simply make relationships with clients… work!
  • Enjoys continuity. You enjoy the regular rhythm of working with a core set of clients week-in and week-out. “Consistency is key” is your motto.
  • Is a manager of one. Unlike working within a traditional firm, in this role you’ll be in the driver’s seat, managing your workflow and workload in order to meet the standard set of deliverables required for each client.

About Our Culture

We’re fully remote, with team members and clients located all across the U.S. and have developed our own unique culture we call The SBS Way, within which we operate, evaluate performance, and make decisions using our core values as a guide:

  • Be Antifragile. Everything we do, good or bad, makes us better. And every experience is an opportunity for learning and continuous improvement.
  • Play The Long Game. We make decisions, to the best of our ability, in the long-term interest of our firm, our team, our clients, and our broader industry and community.
  • Embrace Technology. We welcome new technologies with open arms, and are always exploring, testing, and implementing them in the interest of enhancing both our internal capabilities and our client’s outcomes.
  • Build and Trust The Process. Each member of the team is committed to building, following, and improving the processes we use to deliver exceptional results for our clients.
  • Act as A Team of Expert Knowledge Workers. We openly and willingly collaborate, communicate, and provide rapid, direct feedback in the interest of learning, improving and developing ourselves.

Working At SBS

What it’s like working at our firm:

  • High flexibility. We believe in the ability of our team to determine the best way to complete their work. We measure outputs, not inputs. We don’t have time sheets. We don’t track hours. We don’t pay attention to when and where our team works. Your schedule is yours to make.
  • High accountability. What we care about most is that we deliver on what we promise to our clients. In this respect, we measure and manage to our deliverable performance metrics and ensure each team member takes ownership over their accomplishment with a high level of quality that aligns with our core values
  • Great pay for great work. We pay based on the characteristics that matter: position (and its market value), level of mastery, and longevity with the firm. All of which aim to ensure each member of the team feels they are compensated well and can focus on great work.
  • Performance bonuses. Beyond the base salary compensation for each role, individuals who go above and beyond to achieve a higher level of productivity and contribution to our goals will be eligible to receive significant additional performance-based compensation.
  • Merit-based career progression. We have clearly established career tracks, performance benchmarks, and mastery levels set for all of our core positions. How quickly you progress is entirely under your control, with a quarterly review and bi-annual promotion consideration cycle in place to evaluate your progress.
  • Generous benefits. We offer a generous benefits package that includes medical, dental, and vision insurance enrollment; as well as an IRA match, tech stipend, 3 weeks of paid time off, and entry into our profit share bonus program after two years of service.
  • Personal and and team development. In addition to our overall continuous learning focus, we also provide support for personal development in the form of expense coverage for continuing education (books, courses, training, certifications, etc.) as well as experiential learning (brewery visits, industry events and conferences, etc.). Each year we also meet in person for an all-expenses-paid annual retreat as a team. No work. Lots of fun. Lots of client beer.
