"I'm not going from private industry to a public accounting firm."
Whoa! This is something that’s actually different.
Meet Joe & Paul - our founders.
Former firm guys who started Avalon because they believe small businesses deserve a better deal.
Our team is made up of amazing professionals who also happen to be trombone players, Slack meme creators and masters of buffoonery.
We’ve got an amazing team and love what we do - and who we do it for.
I really enjoy working with smart, enthusiastic people who don't take themselves too seriously. Also, Avalon's use of technology allows me the flexibility to work from home or wherever I decide to be!
- Jon Candel, CPA
Why working with us would be awesome for you
Life at Avalon is different: we don’t have the typical busy search of most accounting firms. None of that soul-crushing, “what happened to my life?” stuff here.
Here’s what your life at Avalon does look like:
- You work remotely or in our co-working space as you wish - anywhere there’s Internet
- Your time won’t be tracked: we are strictly a result-over-work environment
- You’re required to have scheduled, mandatory fun (see our “buffoonery” value)
- Working towards your CPA designation? We’ll pay for and support your education
- Already a CPA? We’ll pay your membership dues and professional development costs
- Cell phone stipend
- Profit sharing
- Health benefits

I resonated with the values of Avalon (especially buffoonery), and felt like I would be a great fit. Also, the people seemed alright.

We find a better way.
We care, and we show it.
We seek first to understand.
We do what we say we are going to do.
We succeed and learn together.
No squirrels allowed.
We bring a brisk and cheerful willingness to all we do.
We value the ridiculous and amusing.
I joined for the beer on tap! (No, not really). It was mostly Avalon's website. It had humour and personality to it, and Joe and Paul looked like friendly people to work with.

Roles we’re looking for
