Online accountancy firm adds 100 jobs with option for remote work

11 Oct 2021

Accountant Online is hiring for jobs in tech as well as accountancy, with remote and hybrid working options for all.

Online accountancy firm Accountant Online will create 100 new tech and accountancy jobs over the next four years, tripling its workforce in Ireland.

Accountant Online currently employs 51 people. It has offices in Dublin, Derry and Letterkenny, as well as remote workers in Ireland and abroad.

The company already practised a remote working model prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, with all staff afforded the opportunity to work remotely. The new jobs announced will also include remote and hybrid working options for all.

These skilled jobs will span technology as well as accountancy, while there will also be ancillary staff recruited to the team.

This expansion will bring Accountant Online’s workforce to 150 people by early 2026.

Founded in 2015, the company currently has more than 2,000 clients, mainly in tech, software and consulting. It provides financial and business services and, last year, was named Practice of the Year at the Irish Accountancy Awards.

“When I set up the company, the accountancy industry was still at a very traditional stage,” said founder and CEO Larissa Feeney. “While there has been a lot of digital transformation in the industry, there is still a lot more room for clients to benefit from further innovation and digitisation.”

With technology already at its core, Accountant Online was able to capitalise on the recent acceleration of digital transformation across all sectors. “Dramatic advances in CRM and cloud technologies are also allowing us to service our clients really well and more efficiently than traditional accountancy practice methods,” added Feeney.

Accountant Online makes use of automation and AI to optimise its processes and make efficient use of its team’s time. Its current growth is driven by increased adoption of digital services as Irish companies become more confident in conducting business wholly online.

The company saw a 45pc increase in turnover during the pandemic and is on track to reach €3m for the year ending March 2022. It now predicts further increases to €10m by 2026.
