Controller & HR Manager

SUMMARY OF THE POSITION:

We’re looking for a unique candidate for a unique position.  We operate two website-related companies and are looking for someone that can help us to better manage finance and people between the two organizations.

Bytes.co is an established digital agency providing website design and development, hosting & support and digital marketing to businesses and organizations mostly located in the Northeast US.  Bytes.co has 350+ clients and 22 employees.  We’ve consistently grown the business every year with the exception of last year’s Q2 Covid-19 setbacks.

Accessible Web is our web accessibility startup that spun out of Bytes.co in 2019.  Accessible Web offers tools and services to help businesses and organizations upgrade their websites to meet the “Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)”.  WCAG makes websites accessible and compatible with the assistive technologies that people with disabilities use to browse the web. Accessible Web has 10 employees and approximately 30 current customers. We are planning to grow Accessible Web aggressively in the coming years.

This role would report to Peter Jewett, the founder and CEO of both companies. Our primary goal is finding somebody to manage our bookkeeping and finances.  Our secondary goal is finding someone to manage HR, payroll, and help with hiring. We’re looking for someone that is experienced, mature, and can confidently juggle multiple responsibilities. Help us be more strategic about forward-looking planning to maximize growth!
