Looking for an Accounting Administrator

By | October 2nd, 2014


Thank you for your interest, but this position has been filled.
Please check out our jobs page for additional great opportunities at Backblaze.

There was a time when Cecilia gleefully did our accounting, counted hard drives, and basically ran our office. As Backblaze has grown so has her workload and Cecilia is busy, busy, busy. She needs someone to join her team as an Accounting Administrator. Ideally this person would have solid computer skills (Excel, Word, etc.), some finance experience, be meticulous and detail oriented, and be willing to wear many different hats, including sales and office administration. Someone who could do all that would make Cecilia decidedly less monstrous.

This position is in our San Mateo, California office. Please follow the instructions at the end of this post to apply.

Accounts Payable:

  • Ensure timely and accurate payments to vendors and employees
