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.
