Working at Backyard Bookkeeper is the dream job that I didn't even know I was looking for.  I get to work with amazing people each and every day.  Each day is different from the day before and so I never get stuck in a mundane rut.  There is flexibility in the hours that I can work.  This means that I can have the best of both worlds by being able to work and still take care of my family.  I have never worked for a company that cares as much about their employees as Backyard Bookkeeper.  I feel incredibly blessed to be a part of their team.

I love working for Backyard Bookkeeper. The people I work with, both co-workers and clients are wonderful. This is a job I look forward to every day, and I can work from home on my time-frame. It has been the perfect fit for me as I've grown and learned in my responsibilities. And the owners are constantly looking for ways to improve our company. It's not often you find a company that values family and their employees the way Backyard Bookkeeper does. I'm so grateful to have this job!

I was looking for a position and a company where I could utilize my skills from my previous workplaces, work from home and work with very capable and dependable people. I was very fortunate to become a part of this team where it's not focused on being competitive and stepping on each others toes to get to the top, but very much centered on a team effort to take care of our client's needs. There are also many opportunities for commissions, bonuses and pay increases, which is all the more reason to want to work for this company!"
