Controller

| Greater Boulder Area

We’re a rapidly-growing, fast-paced SaaS company based in Boulder, Colorado. Our brand new, dog-friendly, open-concept office is located just off Route 36 and houses some of the smartest and hardest working people not only in the industry but, in the tech space. At our core, we’re a software company, but our people make the difference.

 

Who we are

We’re a tight-knit group with the utmost respect for one another and a “work hard, play hard” mentality. We love skiing, hiking, and getting active outside in our amazing surroundings as we’re pretty big on work-life balance.

 

Today we have over 500 clients worldwide and boast a 97% customer retention rate. With the energy of a startup, but the stability of an established business, we’re shaking up the contact center industry and are looking for smart, hard-working people to take us to the next level.

We’re looking for people who:

Are flexible and open
You may have the title of controller, but you might be pulled into brainstorms or asked to help in areas outside your usual wheelhouse. We work in small teams and it’s an all hands on deck environment.

Share ideas
Even if this is your first role in the SaaS world, you bring a unique perspective to the table. Don’t holdback. We look to individuals to share ideas and take ownership of tasks. This isn’t a show-up and punch the clock kind of place.

Ask questions
SaaS can be a confusing world and we’re an innovative place, constantly pushing our technology and features to do more. Learning the technology and the why or why not behind it is important for every member of the company.  

 

We offer
Competitive salaries, comprehensive benefits, high matching 401k, wellness benefits, generous paid time off, and a casual yet demanding and fast-paced work environment. Our “pay-for-performance” programs reward rockstar achievements and intellect. We also offer reimbursement for relevant continuing education, conferences, and skills development.

Additional attributes

  • Public Accounting experience required

Please apply by submitting your resume & a cover letter. In your cover letter, describe how you view the relationship that an accounting team has with the rest of a company. This can be short and sweet. Submissions without this simple little anecdote will be passed to the back.

We look forward to hearing from you!

An Insider's view of Connect First

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Connect first understands that we are people outside of work! They offer employees a lot of flexibility and understanding when it comes to personal lives.

Alex

HR Admin

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We deal with a variety of technical challenges, including: basic configuration questions about the proprietary software; SIP and Telephony analysis and troubleshooting; understanding of networking concepts and common issues... We also assist our customers with these technologies, to have the best experience possible with our Could-Based Platform.

Andy

Technical Solutions Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

Following the process that was laid out by our fearless leader! If you follow the steps that he teaches for the sales process, it works and helps with the closing part of the deal. We focus on the customer's needs and not just getting the contract signed. We make sure to help each company with their unique needs in order to help reach their goals!

Christina

Sales Manager

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

There’s a sense of freedom to take chances and calculated risks, start initiatives, optimize, and do things differently. If you’re going to fail, fail fast and move on. We’re constantly learning what works, what can be improved and what we need to abandon. It’s an inspiring and freeing way to work that cultivates innovation and amazing results.

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My initial role was responsible for customer and technical support with the ability to learn more technical skill set as I worked. I have been fortunate enough to receive support and opportunities to allow me to take on the role of Test Engineer. Now I work on software testing, with the frequent ability to contribute in other technical areas!
