Who we are

ConnectCPA LLP is not your traditional accounting firm. We are an online/virtual firm, paperless, and tech savvy.   We are growing rapidly, and are in search of a team member that meshes with our unique firm culture.  

We are a Licensed Chartered Professional Accounting (CPA) firm that operates with a startup mentality:  We experiment, we collaborate, we embrace new technologies and we have fun doing it.

We are breaking every “accounting firm” stereotype:  We dress casually, we use Slack and Zoom to communicate and we have a culture of trying new things everyday.

Why us?

We’ve been there before. You are unhappy because you work in a bureaucratic culture where you are told how to dress, what hours to work and your voice is not being heard.

At ConnectCPA we want you to enjoy your career and here is how we make it happen:

  • You will be working from your home office (who doesn't love that?)
  • You will have autonomy and control over your schedule
  • We don’t track time!
  • We will provide you with a brand new laptop
  • Everyone's opinions and ideas are valued on how we can improve the firm
  • We are a young firm with an easy-going culture
  • No formalwear required

You'll join us on our annual team retreat, where we get to relax, hang out and improve the firm.  Pictures from our last few retreats can be found HERE and HERE.
