Many accountants work in stressful firms with seemingly endless demands, deadlines, travel, and overtime. Such firms seldom have a purpose other than to maximize profits or satisfy customers, leaving their employees drained and unfulfilled. That’s not us.

At Coalfield, we genuinely care about the career and well-being of every individual we employ. We expect you will provide 40 hours per week of excellent work, not 60 hours of burnout. We expect smart priorities and results from those priorities; we do not expect you to “do it all.”

You will have a sense of purpose that can only come from serving others, being the change you want to see in the world, and being involved in creative solutions to the world’s problems.

You will feel a sense of comradery and belonging that can only come from working alongside a passionate, diverse, quirky, eclectic, and compassionate team of personally and professional invested individuals.
