  • Strong mathematical reasoning and quantitative skills
  • Strong ability to multi-task, organize and prioritize
  • Professional demeanor with the ability to maintain confidentiality
  • Excellent communication skills both verbal and written
  • Detail oriented, self-motivated
  • Reliability is an absolute must​

A Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting is a plus, but only in addition to hands-on construction accounting experience​

As a Construction Accountant, you’ll be responsible full-spectrum accounting including:

  • Accounts payable and accounts receivable functions
  • General ledger, reconciliations and journal entries
  • Payroll ​and Commission Calculation​
  • Preparation of related management reports
  • Communicating routinely with CFO and Project Managers regarding bonding, insurance, contract agreements and the like
