  • Grow and develop the accounting team
  • On occasion prepare formal presentation materials for senior management and Board of Directors

  • Knowledge of GAAP accounting, financial statements, payroll, and taxes
  • Excellent communication skills, both verbal and written
  • Strong computer skills including Microsoft Office products as well as finance and accounting software applications

We believe talent and drive are worth more than words on a resume, ideas and execution are more important than titles and everyone is an owner. We collaborate with highly-motivated, intelligent people to stay true to our motto - Redstoners are doers.

At Redstone, we’re looking for people invigorated by our mission, not just those who simply check off all the boxes.
