Jeff Maddux, CPA
Founder @ AccountantList, Accounting Technologist for SaaS & Ecommerce Companies
WHAT I DO:
I help startup founders understand their financial health, avoid compliance issues, review key SaaS business metrics, enabling them to make strategic decisions for their financial success.
HOW I DO IT:
I provide remote bookkeeping and accounting services to help run SaaS businesses, using best-in-class cloud accounting software, preparing and reviewing monthly financials, analyzing and interpreting financial records, and integrating current accounting standards into the ever changing tech industry.
WHY I DO IT:
I’m passionate about introducing the best technology to streamline accounting systems so founders and accounting professionals can spend less time doing work they hate, and more time doing work they love.
When I'm not helping SaaS and Ecommerce companies automate their accounting systems, I spend much of my time creating resources to help educate accountants how to advance their remote accounting careers with my blog, and remote accounting jobs board AccountantList.
