We're a laid back group of people working hard on a tough problem. Bookkeeping is a universal pain point for passionate entrepreneurs trying to pursue their dreams. They want to run their businesses, not do accounting, so we make that disappear. 

We’re a team of the brightest minds in Vancouver who're on a journey to change the way accounting is done in the world of small business. As a VC backed startup with over $20m in funding, it’s no surprise that we’re growing fast. If you’re looking for a company that will give you real responsibility from day one and will develop your professional acumen, this is the place to be. You’ll be maintaining relationships with small business owners from various professional backgrounds and industries, both on the phone and through our proprietary bookkeeping technologies. With or without an accounting background, we’ll provide you with all the tools and training you’ll need to be a phenomenal Accounting Associate.

When you throw in with us you're not only joining a company that’s changing the way business is done, you're joining at an inflection point. Bench is post Series B, capitalized by a team of Silicon Valley and New York investors. We’re scaling fast and we’re not slowing down anytime soon. In just a few short years, we’ve grown from four co-founders to over 250 Benchmates.

  • Troubleshooting service-related problems and adapting to the needs of your client portfolio
  • Providing insight and feedback into the current bookkeeping process
  • Building friendships with a group of smart and savvy Benchmates
  • Entertaining your coworkers with your good-natured wit and charm

You’ll fit in well if you:

  • Have a post-secondary degree in business, science, or mathematics (preferred but not required)
  • Have experience in customer service and relationship management
  • Are not afraid of numbers, simple math, or problem-solving 
  • Have an articulate phone and written presence that conveys confidence and charm
