Assistant Controller (Part-time) at Tablespoon

Tablespoon is a boutique provider of outsourced accounting and financial technology solutions, delivered through our partnership with Sage Intacct. We are proud to serve successful restaurant and retail concepts of all shapes and sizes (from independents to national franchises) and are growing very rapidly, as demand for modern technology and industry-specific financial expertise accelerates coming out of the pandemic.

Why choose Tablespoon

  • More flexibility and balance. We are 100% remote and offer the flexibility to find balance between work and your personal schedule.

  • Culture of innovation. As a small but rapidly growing firm, we operate more like a startup than a traditional consulting firm. Innovation, agility, and continuous improvement are at our core.

  • Growth. Through one-on-one coaching, training, and ongoing feedback, we help you develop the skills and experience necessary to grow your career.

  • Opportunity to make an impact. Our solutions help transform the way our clients work, enabling more healthy and sustainable growth.

The Role

As the firm’s Assistant Controller, you will be responsible for managing our finances and internal accounting tasks, including month-end financial and KPI reporting. You will also own all day-to-day accounting functions (AR, AP, payroll, etc.) and support our leadership team in forecasting and analyzing business performance.

The ideal candidate will have previous experience in the SaaS industry and knowledge of applicable GAAP accounting standards (especially ASC 606). Strong technology skills and prior experience with Sage Intacct advanced modules are a differentiator.

This position will initially be part-time (25 hours per week) and will report directly to our CEO.

  • You are looking for a flexible work schedule averaging around 25 hours per week

  • You have prior experience with Sage Intacct or NetSuite at an intermediate to advanced level

  • You have strong technical accounting skills and experience with building financial models

  • You excel at creating process and structure in ambiguous and occasionally chaotic circumstances

  • You are extremely organized and detail-oriented but can step out of the details and see the big picture

  • You are naturally curious, observant, and fascinated by solving problems

What you’ll do

  • Take ownership of all internal financial operations (billing, payroll, AP, etc.)

  • Complete month-end close with appropriate reconciliations/support

  • Prepare revenue recognition entries and schedules consistent with SaaS industry practices

  • Prepare internal financial reporting and KPIs for the leadership team

  • Collaborate with the leadership team on financial forecasting and budgeting

  • Manage the financial aspects of the firm’s key strategic and vendor partnerships

  • Prepare and file monthly sales tax returns; manage state registrations and compliance

  • Identify and implement software solutions to automate client billing and other accounting processes

  • Serve as the primary point of contact for all internal accounting and financial matters (insurance, banking, year-end taxes, etc.)


As a part-time role, this position will be compensated on an hourly rate basis commensurate with experience, and will not be eligible for benefits.

Since Tablespoon is a virtual firm and this is a remote position, the successful candidate will also need:

  • A secure place to work from home with no interruptions

  • A reliable high-speed internet connection

  • Ability to work independently and self-manage competing priorities and deadlines

  • Strong technology skills and experience working with modern business SaaS applications and communication tools (Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Box, etc.)

  • Must be comfortable communicating and meeting with clients and team members in a virtual environment (including frequent video meetings)
