Hired! Job Posting: Bookkeeper

Update February, 2022: Welcome aboard to team troublemaker to our new Monarch of Moolah, Zena!

January, 2022

Are you passionate about creative activism, social movements and Quickbooks? Are you a detail oriented, number-literate activist? Here is an opportunity to work with a network of creative changemakers under a 501(c)3 umbrella as they build a more solid organizational foundation for either world domination or financial sustainability, whichever comes first.


Beautiful Trouble is looking for a new financial whiz to step into the giant shoes of our soon-to-be-departing Monarch of Moola (job title self-chosen, open to change).

Start date: ASAP

  • Pay: $30/hour to start, increases over time

  • Hours: 10+ hours/month 

  • Location: Anywhere there is the interweb. Must be comfortable with videoconferencing, google docs, and working with a remote team mostly based in far-flung locales.

Candidate will be responsible for:

  • Recording day-to-day financial transactions and performing bank reconciliations

  • Paying bills

  • Maintaining the organization’s Quickbooks file and running reports as needed

  • Generating budgets and statements for grant proposals and grant reporting

  • Managing multiple bank accounts

  • Generating 1099s

  • Assisting accountant with tax preparation

Your skills and experience should include:

  • Familiarity with 501(c)3 financial requirements

  • Bookkeeping and accounting with Quickbooks

  • Billpay through Bill.com

  • AP & AR

  • Spreadsheet wizardry

  • Online banking

  • Extreme appreciation for detail — we have many subprojects, contractors, and moving parts that all need to be kept track of at any given time

  • Ability to multitask (see above)

  • A wicked sense of humor

  • A love of creative approaches to social change

To apply, please send an email with your CV and a short note about why you’d like to work with Beautiful Trouble to chelsea@beautifultrouble.org
