Job Description

What does it mean to be a Homie?

Being a Homie means compassionately looking out for others, doing the right thing even if it’s the hard thing, and showing up as your true, authentic self. At Homie, we’re a friendly group of curious dreamers and expert operators who believe the status ain’t quo. For too long, the way homes have been bought and sold has been outdated, costly, and overcomplicated. We’re here to change that. Through a combination of technology and expert, full-service agent support, Homie is simplifying the real estate process and eliminating high fees and commissions.

Homie launched in 2015. Five years later, we're one of the fastest-growing technology companies in the country and the #1 listings brokerage in the great state of Utah. With real estate, home loans, and insurance services under one roof, Homie is disrupting an industry and paving the way for what real estate can, and should, become. We’re on a mission to make homeownership affordable, easy, and accessible for all — and we’re just getting started.

Homie Values

Disruption: Real estate is ready. The time is now.
Loyalty: Homies come first — our customers, team members, and communities.
Balance: Work is an important part of your life, but it’s not your life.
Humility: Grateful isn’t dead. And there’s always more to learn.

Job Description

It’s time to add another sharp, engaged person to our accounting team! This is a full-time position to help us support Homie’s growth. If you join us, you’ll work from home. However, we do still get some paper checks and other things through snail mail, and you’ll share the responsibility with our other accounting clerk for managing that in person. Our office is in South Jordan just off I-15 at 10600 South; you’ll need to live reasonably close by and be able to make mail runs there.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Become the resident expert at accounting classification. Know what goes where on the books (mainly account, department, market/geography), apply the rules consistently, and be prepared to have the rest of the team come to you for questions
  • Enter bills into our AP system (part of this will be automated)
  • Reconcile accounts receivable and follow up with title companies/banks as needed (this is not a collections job; we’ll answer any questions you have around this in the interview)
  • Classify transactions in our credit card platforms
  • Import bank transactions (using another robot!) and categorize them in our accounting system
  • Check the mail, deposit checks
  • Create and maintain a highly organized filing system
  • Perform account reconciliations and other accounting close processes
  • Assist with other projects (including process improvement, systems implementation, audit support)
     

Job Qualifications:

  • Ownership (always work as if the buck stops with you – fully own your processes, catch your own errors, schedule and use your time effectively, etc.)
  • Next-level organization and precision
  • Intellectual curiosity (want to understand the “why” behind everything)
  • Accounting degree from accredited college/university (or actively working toward it)
  • 1+ years of relevant experience (bookkeeping/accounting)
  • Excel proficiency
  • G-Suite (especially Gmail/Google Sheets) basic knowledge 
  • Netsuite/Bill.com/Divvy or similar experience preferred
  • RPA experience a plus

What you’ll love about working at Homie:

  • Holidays: 13 paid holidays, including our very own - Homie Day! Oh, and you get your birthday off!
  • Time off: To begin you will receive a week of separated sick time and starting PTO at 3 weeks per year (accrual), with an increase each service year.
  • Mental health is very important to us! We have online assistance programs that include things such as virtual yoga, meditation, and even the ability to book virtual counseling.
  • Health benefits: Medical, Dental, and Vision with an HSA option. Life and Disability coverage.
  • Company stock options.
  • Discounted rates on Homie products: Title, Mortgage, Insurance, or new home purchase.
