Staff Accountant

Anne Holland Ventures, an award-winning publisher and trade show media company, is seeking a Staff Accountant to join the accounting team for its subsidiary company Marijuana Business Daily (MJBizDaily).  MJBizDaily is the most credible and best-known producer of business news and conferences serving executives and major investors in America’s $8B cannabis industry.  The Staff Accountant will serve internal customers and external customers alike to ensure proper accounting of bill payments and revenue receipts.

This position is based in our Denver office and will receive a competitive salary, paid time off, 401(k), and health benefits.  As seen in Forbes and the Wall Street Journal, we are a highly professional company that has doubled in size in the past year.  We are looking for a talented and fun person to join our team.

Primary Responsibilities:

  • Accurately and timely record high volume incoming cash receipts.  Payments are received via check, wire transfer/ACH, and credit card.  We work with multiple credit card processors at any given time for various revenue lines and currencies; attention to detail when recording credit card payments is imperative to ensure proper payment application and revenue recognition.
  • Generate customer invoices in NetSuite as sales orders are received from Salesforce.com.  Review the invoices for accuracy (proper event, deposit amount, etc.) before sending to the customer.
  • Manage incoming customer emails and address in a timely manner (within 24 hours).  Common customer inquires include questions regarding invoices and payments and assistance with payment portal logins.
  • Assist with the entry of accounts payable invoices and expense reports and serve as accounts payable backup when needed.
  • Manage customer collections.  Develop a process to track customer deposit and final payment amounts and due dates and contact the customers (via phone and email) as needed to ensure payments are being received by required deadlines. 
  • Other projects as needed.  As the company continues to grow, the duties of this role will shift along with the growth.

Desired qualifications:

  • 3-5 years’ experience in a comparable accounts receivable/accounts payable role.
  • Demonstrated experience in a fast-growing startup company.
  • Experience with Microsoft Outlook and credit card processing systems/gateways.
  • Preferred experience with NetSuite and Salesforce.com.
  • Experience working with direct bill clients/conducting collections.
  • Recent experience with accounts receivable functions (cash receipts, invoicing).
  • Attention to detail is a must.
  • Flexibility and willingness to adapt as the company grows.
