Senior Accountant at Framework | Powderkeg

Location: San Francisco or Remote (United States)

Employment Type: Full-time

Team: Finance

Who We Are

At Framework, we believe the time has come for products that are designed to last. Founded in San Francisco in 2019, our mission is to remake Consumer Electronics to respect people and the planet.

We've started with two award-winning products, the Framework Laptop 13 and 16. Our laptops are thin, light, high-performance notebooks that can be upgraded, customized, and repaired in ways that no other notebook can. Alongside this, we've launched the Framework Marketplace to enable an ecosystem of parts and modules. We've seen a fantastic reception to both of our laptops from customers and reviewers from outlets like Linus Tech Tips, [Ars Technica](https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2021/07/frameworks-new-lightweight- modular-laptop-delivers-on-its-promises/), and multiple Wirecutter reviews (including a recommendation among the best [Windows Ultrabooks of 2024](https://www.nytimes.com/wirecutter/reviews/the-best-windows- ultrabook/)), along with making[ TIME's Best Inventions lists in 2021](https://time.com/collection/best-inventions-2021/6112625/framework- laptop/) and [2023](https://time.com/collection/best- inventions-2023/6323599/framework-laptop-16/). As a company, we were #35 on [Fast Company's Most Innovative Companies of 2022](https://www.fastcompany.com/90722815/framework-innovative-laptop-easy- repair-electronics).

We come from successful consumer electronics startups including the founding team of Oculus, and have closed multiple rounds of funding to fuel our roadmap. Even better (and maybe unusually for an early stage startup), we're in a financially healthy position going forward off of our product revenue. We care deeply about building a diverse and inclusive team, and we hope you do too!

We are looking for a talented Senior Accountant to join our fast-growing team. If you are an experienced Accountant with a background in manufacturing, supply chain, or e-commerce, and you have a strong interest in making a difference in the consumer electronics industry – this is a great opportunity to join a fantastic mission-driven team. **If you’re not sure that you’re 100% qualified, but are up for the challenge - we want to you to apply. **

This role is a full-time remote position based in the US or Canada. If you’re local to the San Francisco area, we spend one day a week together in person at our headquarters. No travel is required unless we have on-site in-person meetings.
