You’ll be backed up by a seasoned accounting team who knows our business and will be ready to help you utilize our historical  accounting data to glean insights for the future. Lastly, this is an opportunity to build and refine a team and business insight capabilities. You will think “full board” about the business and ways to help it grow, while hopefully having a little fun too.  

Experience & skills you’ll need

  •  Plans and Aligns: Be a pro juggler. You will need to manage a heavy and  diverse workload without breaking a sweat. To do so you’ll have to be proactive,  able to prioritize, and be a strong communicator.
  •  Decision Quality: Integrity and a commitment to the highest possible ethical  standards. The only thing not funny about Jellyvision is our books. 

Anything else?

Our credo is a simple one: be helpful. And we think we can be most helpful if our workforce is as diverse in thought, perspective, and culture as the people who use our  products. We are looking to add amazing people to our team who will bring diversity  across many lines, including race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, age, marital  status, disability, gender identity, sex, and country of origin. 

Jellyvision’s headquarters is in Chicago, and, post-COVID, many of us will be returning to the Chicago offices (by choice, not requirement -- our philosophy is “Flexible First”).  But this position is also eligible for work by a remote employee out of CA, MI, MN, NY, OR, TX, or WI.

Thanks for your interest in Jellyvision!

An Insider's view of Jellyvision

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Jellyvision is a place where I truly feel like leadership wants me to be healthy/happy. They really show me they want you to have a work/life balance. The company does everything they can to avoid unwarranted stress with unlimited PTO, flexible Working From Home, emails reminding me to take care of myself, and ways to get help from my teammates.


Implementation Manager

What makes someone successful on your team?

The product team is full of self-driven, curious, scrappy individuals. The most successful are the least afraid of jumping into ambiguity and getting creative in overcoming the numerous obstacles thrown at them every day. Their ability to adapt to change quickly while keeping their teams calm, cool, and collected makes the job look easy!


Principal Product Manager, New Concepts

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

Implementation is a team of ballers, constantly impressing me with new ideas. Our most recent ideas are new classes around Professional Development and a pilot approach to quickly implement customers. These ideas came from folks on the team. When my coworkers have these ideas, my job is to give them the support and resources to run with them.


VP of Implementation
