What’s the job and who is Nuru?

As the Accounting Associate (AA) you will be an integral part of the Finance Team directly supporting Finance and Marketing & Development. You will report directly to the Finance Manager and collaborate with the COO and Nuru team members. This is an exciting entry level role where you will gain experience and in-depth knowledge of the nonprofit industry. You will thrive working remotely with limited guidance, and enjoy managing multiple projects across finance and the admin team in a fast-paced environment.

Founded in 2008, Nuru International establishes locally-led NGO’s in Sub-Saharan Africa which work to eradicate extreme poverty and unlock economic potential in rural farmer communities. This goal is achieved by transitioning vulnerable smallholder farmers from subsistence to professionalized farming as a business. While Nuru staff technically work for separate and distinct locally-run organizations based in various countries, we all operate under a shared vision to cultivate lasting meaningful choices in the most vulnerable and marginalized communities in the world.

Nuru International has been a fully remote team since 2008 and will continue to be one. All Nuru International staff members work from a location of their choice.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Process accounts payable and receivable transactions, including invoicing, payment processing, and reconciliations
  • Prepare and post journal entries, including accruals and deferrals
  • Perform monthly bank and credit card reconciliations
  • Assist with the preparation of Nuru’s annual budget, financial statements and reports, annual audit and tax filings
  • Maintain accurate and up-to-date financial records and files
  • Participate in the development and implementation of financial policies and procedures
  • Provide support for grant compliance and reporting
  • Manage semi-monthly payroll; collaborate with HR to maintain accurate state taxes and compliance
  • Assist with other financial and administrative duties as needed

What Nuru offers you:

  • Our culture encourages healthy work/life satisfaction, a flexible 100% work-from-home schedule, prioritizes your resiliency, and is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive work environment.
  • You will be an essential member of the team supporting all accounting functions directly.
  • You will be supported by a strong management team who values your input, is eager to coach you, provide feedback, receive feedback, and help you grow in your career.
  • You will work alongside a team of highly accomplished professionals across the globe who are all motivated by a shared purpose.
  • We provide an equitable and competitive salary based on recent industry data, an excellent benefits package for full time employees which includes medical, dental, vision insurance and a flexible spending account; long-term and short-term disability; 401(k) with company match, generous time off, paid parental leave, laptop, and more. Salary and benefits will be discussed in the first interview.

POSITION REQUIREMENTS

What you should have:

  • Coursework in accounting or finance
  • 1-2 years of experience in accounting or finance, preferably in a nonprofit setting
  • Strong understanding of GAAP and nonprofit accounting principles
  • Experience with accounting software (Netsuite and Quickbooks preferred) and Microsoft Excel

Who you are:

  • Detail-oriented. Your attention to detail is mind blowing. You stay organized, on top of your tasks, and nothing falls through the cracks. You demonstrate the ability to support multiple projects and departments at one time and overcome interruptions with ease and good humor.
  • Strong communicator. You communicate your needs with clarity and kindness in a 100% work-remote environment.
  • Self-starter. You are confident in developing and executing tasks and projects with limited guidance. Your time management is impeccable. You establish clear priorities, work plans, and meet deadlines.
  • Cross-cultural aptitude. You highly respect and eagerly learn from other cultures.
  • Aligned. You are motivated by and committed to Nuru International’s mission, theory of change, and Nuru values (fail fast/learn fast, equity, bold action, transparency, and servant leadership).
  • Contributor. Like other Nuru staff, you take your work seriously but you don’t take yourself too seriously. You appreciate the quote “culture eats strategy for breakfast” and you cooperate easily with staff, vendors, and donors working as a positive team player.
  • Globetrotter. You are excited to travel within the U.S. for team events or conferences and jump at the chance to visit other Nuru Organizations in Africa.
