Welcome to the first edition of my *new* newsletter.
It’s been quite awhile since I last sent a newsletter letting you know about the latest happenings with AccountantList.
Today, I’m excited to share the newest company profile on AccountantList: Blumer CPAs
Fun fact: Back in 2014 when I thought I wanted to start my own accounting firm, I looked at the founder, Jason Blumer, as inspiration for the type of modern day firm I wanted to create. In retrospect, I would have rather worked for a firm like Blumer CPAs, than attempt (and fail) to start my own firm from scratch. I don’t remember if they were hiring remotely back then, but now they are!
Before I even started AccountantList, I was obsessed with researching the best places to work as an accounting professional, because I reached a point in my career where I valued gaining more freedom & flexibility over more money.
Given that I lived (and still live) in a not so big U.S. city compared to LA, NY, or SF, there weren’t many progressive employers that embraced workplace flexibility, so I made it my mission to find, curate, and build a database of flexible and remote-friendly employers.
Well, I took all that research and data and made my latest project: The Cloud Accounting List
. This is a list of all the cloud accounting firms in the US and Canada that have popped up on my radar over the past few years. I’ve analyzed each and every company on this list for their perks, flex factors, and key tech.
My goal with this List is to go beyond the job board - not just see who’s hiring *right now*, but what firms you want to work for, before they’re even hiring. It’s not quite done yet as I’m still making adjustments so I haven’t announced it publicly, just to the AL community. More to come soon…
And on a personal note, my wife and I are about to become first-time parents to a baby girl in less than a month. I’m super excited and ready for this next chapter in my life. I’m taking the maximum amount of paternity leave at my day job (3 months) to bond with my baby and help out at home. And I’m sure when I have the time for it, I’ll likely be researching the best companies for new parents to share with you ;)
