Job Description

Our client is an AI platform for accounting firms, providing accountants with a team of AI assistants. Accounting teams integrate the product directly into their accounting software (SAGE, Quickbooks, etc), delegating core workflows and automating time-consuming, manual work.

With a $3.6M seed round led by Better Tomorrow Ventures with participation from BoxGroup, Avid Ventures, several top accounting firms, and leaders from the accounting and machine learning communities.

Many businesses in America rely on their accountant for far more than the traditional roles of maintaining books and filing taxes. For many businesses, accountants are among their most trusted advisors, in charge of steering them through both routine planning and unchartered waters.

Unlocking the potential of these emergent abilities requires far more than chatbots bolted onto the side of a product. It requires being a core part of the workflow. This is why we partner with accounting firms across practice areas to build and iterate on solutions that are native to the workflows. The platform is already serving clients across CFO advisory, assurance, client accounting services, bookkeeping, and more.
