Ziba is full of dynamic, intense, passionate, and committed team members – it requires an up-for-the-challenge energy. In our accounting corner, we don’t have a lot of volume (not many AP invoices), but we have a lot of complexity (multiple related party entities).

Managing and supporting a group of creatives is hard work, but can also be invigorating; you really must enjoy the organized chaos a little bit to be successful. At the end of the day, all of us at Ziba and the Ops team care deeply about each other and the firm and that’s what helps us be successful.

You have:

  • Some human resources experience up your sleeve (preferred, not required)

    • Reconciliation and Entry of Payroll Journal and Benefit Invoices
    • AP and AR entries in collaboration with Sr. Project Accountant

      • Termination package and off boarding support
      • And any other related tasks that may come up


  • Primarily on-site and in-person with some possible hybrid scheduling/coordination.
  • Have great attention to detail – accuracy is key – but also be willing to admit errors and learn from them.
  • Be experienced and facile at using Microsoft Office 365 and able to learn other new programs, as needed.
