Finance Fool: Staff Accountant - Payroll Motley Fool
Finance Fool: Staff Accountant - Payroll
Although we have the most amazing company and inspiring jobs in the DC area, Fools still want to get paid for their efforts. Imagine that!
We need someone to make that happen ? it?s kind of like making dreams come true, only a little more specific and highly regulated. If you are looking at this position you probably have some idea of what it requires ? if not, go check out a different job here: jobs.fool.com.
If these words excite you, then this is your lucky day: general ledger, documentation, accuracy, compliance, GAAP, accounting principles, payroll, fixed assets, accounts payable. It?s also our lucky day because getting excited about that is rare and somewhat abnormal, but we know you are out there. And abnormal is pretty normal around here.
We?re not talking about ?Hey, I guess I could do that? but, ?WOW! I LOVE THAT!!!!? Seriously, if you love detail, perfection and repetition and the word ?meticulous? makes you smile, come smile with us (and make sure my paycheck is in the bank on the 7th and 22nd).

We should, however, make you aware that there is one notable exception to this policy. It is our strict and earnest intention ? and the company?s historical record will bear this out ? we will never hire any of the following: robots, replicants, or morlocks. Now keep in mind we are well aware that all of the aforementioned have intentions of world domination in the future, but as of now we have no place for them at The Motley Fool ? unless the year is 2122 and the revolution has already occurred. If that is the case we welcome our new robot, replicant, or morlock rulers!!! Perhaps we have said too much?
