The Staff Accountant works within our small team which processes all accounting functions for both The Front and its sister company, Vertical Solutions. The Staff Accountant reports directly to the Controller of The Front Climbing Club.
You're organized, number obsessed, and driven. You're flexible with your process, open to learning new ways of doing things, and ready and willing to contribute new ideas and methods. Your attention to detail is second to none.
Finally, and most importantly, you're ready to dive in. You have the experience to hit the ground running and take control. You enjoy updating and creating new processes, staring at spreadsheets, problem solving, and doing a happy dance when all the numbers line up.
Indoor rock climbing has become an incredibly popular mainstream sport and will soon be featured in the Olympic Games. Nearly every state in the nation is now home to at least one rock climbing gym, and all forecasts predict the sport will only continue to grow. We intend to grow with it!
The Front Climbing Club was Utah's first indoor rock-climbing gym, and one of the first in the nation. From our humble beginnings as The Body Shop back in the 80's to three best-in-class facilities today, we have never lost our soul or connection to our roots.
Like all industries, there are some who do it poorly, some who do it well, and some who do it best. Vertical Solutions, The Front Climbing Club's sister company and the nation's largest domestic climbing wall manufacturer, does it best. We build indoor climbing walls throughout the country with distinctive materials that set us apart from (and above) the competition, and we have set the industry standard for design and aesthetics. Our walls are fabricated at our headquarters in Salt Lake City by an expert team of carpenters and welders and shipped to job sites across the country for assembly by our traveling field crew. VS also produces a full fleet of climbing holds and pads, and offers in-depth business development consulting, making us the only true full-service gym builder in the U.S. The rapid expansion of our company and industry ensures ample opportunity for career development and upward mobility.
We do not offer easy jobs. We simply cannot slow down enough to kick back and relax while we are at work, but we highly encourage you to shut off your devices and email and disappear into the mountains on your own time.
Our culture is built on this level of work ethic, as well as integrity, community (we do not use that word lightly), and unity.
All that said, we also know how to have a good time.
PRIMARY AND ESSENTIAL FUNCTIONS//
The Front's mission is to create innovative spaces that maximize the climbing experience, inspire meaningful connections, and foster an engaged community.
Distinctive Facilities with Emotional Depth//
We design and build outstanding and unique facilities that are the "3rd place" for the broader outdoor community, and we maintain and improve our facilities with the utmost attention to detail and care. This creates a foundation for organic and fostered emotional connections with our members and between our members, leading to long-term, loyal, and proud members.
We add depth and authenticity to our facilities by supporting and contributing to our local communities through volunteerism, educated activism, and both financial and non-financial support.
Operational Prowess and Superiority//
We develop and continually improve elegant, efficient and documented operational processes that underpin a disciplined approach to effective facility operations. We look outside the climbing industry for guidance and inspiration, and strive to be at the industry forefront in all respects. We safeguard our industry edge and protect company assets through discretion and care.
We use data to inform and guide our operations. Data gathering and analytics are foundational in improving our facilities, increasing our operational efficiency, expanding our individual capacities, and facilitating efficient teamwork. We adhere to efficient and organized business practices that utilize technologies to continually improve the level of operational excellence we promise to our members.
Employee Excellence and Growth//
We value the positive contributions of our employees and strive to make The Front an enjoyable yet challenging environment to accomplish important work and experience personal growth.
We value listening to and learning from one another. We endeavor to be clear and authentic in all our interactions. We value candor and diverse opinions, yet when decisions are made, we unite to achieve their success.
We have high expectations of one another-to work hard and to be thoughtful. We take pride in and maintain integrity in our work. We are disciplined, focused, and resilient. We thrive on the sharp end. Falling short of a challenging goal, when a thoughtful and concerted effort is employed, is not failure. We undertake challenging projects with forethought and see them through to comprehensive completion.
We collaborate and innovate as a means to create exceptional value for our members, our company, and ourselves.
