Are you a freakin’ master of accounts payable?

Are you a freakin’ master of accounts payable? Do you have serious skills in the art of managing day-to-day accounting and finance requirements? Are confidentiality, excellent organization and accuracy virtues you cling to like Velcro? How about good customer relations and the ability to communicate clearly to people who sometimes think numbers are a foreign language? Can you withhold judgement on those who may still rely on their fingers for math problems? Yes?! Then you are the person we’ve been dreaming of.
