Senior Accountant

About Us:
=========

myKaarma is an ensemble of people that endeavor to streamline the service operations of automotive dealerships and make the customer experience frictionless and touchless. Challenging the status quo is part of our DNA.

Exec: I see this greenfield opportunity to grow our business

Sr. Accountant: We did not budget for this but let me work with you to create a plan to account for this additional “spend” and how we get an ROI out of your innovative efforts!

We want someone who will strive to implement new ideas, methods, and technologies to better meet the ever-evolving requirements of our business. You will work on anticipating future needs, rather than simply finding a response to a currently changing situation.

The successful candidate will establish processes using  lean  (Toyota Production System) principles.  One of your key areas of responsibility will be to develop strategies based on a culture of constant, continuous, incremental improvement (kai-zen). We are a results-driven organization that is loosely coupled but highly aligned.  We believe in guide rails vs strict boundaries.  If you believe that you can thrive in an environment like ours which sports a blistering speed of execution combined with an environment of “organized chaos”, please submit your application by sending an email to hr@mykaarma.com.
