Who we are

We're building a Catholic meditation app. Think Calm or Headspace, but for prayer. We believe that people are searching for peace & spiritual growth, and that there is no surer way to find it than by learning to sit in silence with God: “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest” (Mt 11:28).

Our goal is to build something that combines the beauty of the Church’s spirituality with truly world-class tech & design.

We launched the app in the Apple and Google Play stores in December of 2018 and so far we’ve been humbled with incredible growth & traction. We've been downloaded over 7 million times and have over 150,000 5-star reviews. We're blessed to be backed by some of the best VC investors in the world and are excited to build out the team to help a lot more folks grow closer to God.

Tldr: We are scaling and growing quickly and are looking for a contract accounting associate to help us maintain healthy financials and improve our month-end close process. This person will play a critical role on our finance team in delivering insights that help us shape the business.

What You'll Do

    • Serve as a main liaison between the Hallow team and our external accounting firm, especially to review and resolve discrepancies during the month-end close.
    • Prepare month-end schedules for certain accounting areas, including but not limited to B2B sales, gift cards, content licensing, and marketing expenses.
    • Own accounts receivable and revenue collection. Work with our sales team and accounting firm to ensure proper invoicing and accounting based on contract terms.
    • Provide cross-functional support by running the payment request process for our global content and marketing partnerships.
    • Assist in preparing weekly and monthly financial and KPI reports.
    • Handle various other accounting & finance tasks as assigned.

What You'll Love

    • Mission: This work is incredibly humbling. Every day we hear amazing stories and we get the pleasure of working on something that’s impacting lives.  
    • Ownership: You’ll be a key driver of the month-end close process with our external accounting firm and a critical player in delivering reports that help our leadership team understand how the business is doing. You’ll also serve as a cross-functional partner, especially for our content, marketing, sales, and international teams.
    • Growth: From day 1, you’ll be a part of the startup journey. We’ll need your help to drive continuous improvement in our financial processes as we seek to grow and scale our app and experience for an international audience.
    • Flexibility: This is a remote position. We are open to global candidates, but would like to maximize work overlap with the U.S. Central Time Zone.
    • Comp: We will pay competitive market rates for this hourly position.

What We're Looking For

    • Passion: First & foremost, we’re looking for someone excited about our mission. It makes it a lot more fun :) 
    • Experience: Associate's or bachelor’s degree in accounting, and at least 2 years’ experience with exposure to U.S. GAAP general ledger accounting, month-end close, and financial reporting. Strong Excel skills (Google Sheets experience a plus). Ability to interpret standard contract terms in order to apply accounting policies. Quickbooks Online experience is a plus but not required.
    • Grit & detail-oriented: A start-up is tough and we really care about what we’re doing. You'll be coming into a fast-moving team, so perseverance and attention to detail are important.
    • Flexibility & adaptability: This role will start at an average of ~15 hours per week, with a heavier workload during the first two weeks of the month for month-end close. While the work schedule is fairly flexible, ability to handle tight turn-arounds will be important! There will also be opportunities to expand responsibility over time, including in the near-term.
