A bit about us: while most retailers only want you to buy what they’re selling, the Grommet is focused on helping people discover things worth buying. Through our e-commerce shop and wholesale business, we shine a light on great new products from small businesses and help them compete with the big guys, so that the best ideas win.
The Grommet is seeking an experienced Controller to oversee and direct all financial accounting activities. The successful candidate will be responsible for overseeing payroll, accounts payable, accounts receivable, internal and external financial reporting and compliance with local, state and federal government reporting requirements and tax filings including sales tax filings. This person will report to the CFO.
