We are a rapidly growing AI-driven startup founded in Ireland in 2020. We are a blend of accountants, data specialists, engineers and designers, all from diverse backgrounds who are disrupting the traditional accounting practice with a modern, forward thinking and technology enabled alternative. Outmin provides bookkeeping and accounting services to SMEs in Ireland and the UK through a combination of our unique AI and cloud technology, supported by our team of professionals. To date we have received over €650k in investment to build out our platform and drive customer growth across Ireland and the UK, and are currently doubling the size of our company each quarter.


We are looking for people who are passionate about making accounting more than an expensive compliance exercise for small businesses and who see that they are currently poorly served by the accounting industry and technology platforms.


The role is customer facing and ideal for an accountant who enjoys interacting with clients on a regular basis. More akin to an 'account manager' in a traditional software company, the successful candidate will manage a book of Outmin clients and ensure they receive a high level of customer experience at all times. It is a 100% remote role.

Requirements

Must-have

  • 4+ years of small or medium practice experience

  • Excellent communication skills, in particular helping clients understand the accounting issues that their businesses face
  • Comfortable using modern online productivity tooling such as Google Drive and Sheets
  • The ability to work as part of a team or on your own.
  • The capacity to work at a high level under pressure and the ability to meet deadlines to the standard required by startups
  • Honesty and discretion as you will be handling confidential information.
  • A methodical, thorough and analytical approach.


An Ideal Candidate

  • Customer service orientation and negotiation skills
  • Extensive prior experience with a small and medium accounting practice
  • Strong maths and English skills
  • A genuine interest in business and finance
  • Experience of multiple accounting territories / countries
  • The ability to clearly communicate system optimisations to the Outmin engineering team


Value you'll deliver

  • Rapidly responding to customer queries with high quality guidance that may be complex or simple on a given day for a given query
  • Problem solving complex issues that arise with an energetic and supportive accounting team
  • Working with a software team to improve your workflow and system tools every week


Benefits

  • Health Insurance
  • Full remote working
  • 25 days paid holidays per year (21 days flexible and 4 set company days);
  • Management approved education and career development support.
