Minneapolis, MNFull Time

Financial planning and oversight for operations spanning across an international network of client brands and factories is a daily undertaking for our business. The role of a Trade Accountant includes general bookkeeping for development and production projects; but also involves financial planning, auditing and oversight to ensure that our Manufacturing Team is making good decisions and that our factory schedules are on track. Our ideal candidate has reliable bookkeeping experience, and demonstrates a keen interest in project management and learning about international small business operations.

This position will train under our CEO and work closely with Trade Team members to learn the unique accounting requirements of a wide range of manufacturing projects. Initially, you will provide support on key projects, then quickly evolve to taking the lead on accounting oversight on production receivables, along with factory, workshop and supplier expenses. As you develop an expertise in fashion and performance product manufacturing, you will have opportunities to become more deeply involved in project and business model development.

Hiring Scams

In order to be considered for a job at Otabo, you must be in communication with an employee owning an otabo.com email address and have been interviewed in person. If you receive emails regarding job opportunities from someone who is not an Otabo employee or from an email address without an otabo.com domain, if you interviewed over the phone or chat, or have been offered a job without interviewing at an Otabo location, it is a scam.

Hiring scams should be reported to The Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3). The IC3 is a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C), and the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA).
