About the role

We're building the one-stop shop for creator finances.

Your favorite digital creators—the ones you follow every day on YouTube, Instagram, TikTok or Twitch—aren’t just extraordinarily talented personalities and community builders. They’re also businesses. That means they have business needs—managing revenues, expenses, savings, credit, banking. We’re building products that help creators spend less time worrying about finances so they can focus on creating.

Our team is looking for a Senior Tax Accountant to work directly with our clients, helping them scale their business finances, and create great relationships. We want an individual who has the ambition and experience to grow with Karat.

Life as a Senior Tax Accountant at Karat: Communicate and advise creators on various tax matters such as: choice of entity and tax classification, deductions + 199A, depreciation, state nexus, reasonable compensation, crypto investing. Prepare tax returns for creator companies and their owners using ProConnect Tax Online. Prepare and audit an accurate complete set of books and records for creator companies. Review tax returns, work papers, and documentation prepared by Junior Accountants for accuracy and completeness. Knowledgeable of S Corps, LLC's, and being able to work with clients to help them understand the benefits. Devise, plan and execute complex tax strategies and research potential tax issues. Reconcile balance sheet accounts such as bank balances or credit card balances to monthly statements. Run payroll for creator companies and their employees. Navigate in a fast-changing environment while showing high accountability and ownership.

What You'll Need: Bachelor's degree with major or minor relating to accounting. You have an active Certified Public Accountant (CPA) license or are in the process of pursuing a CPA. You will be contacting tax authorities on behalf of your clients. 4+ years of experience at a small business CPA firm (or similar tax and accounting experience). Exceptional client facing experience and communication skills. Well-rounded expertise across tax, accounting, and payroll concepts for small businesses. Articulate complex tax concepts into simple explanations (ELI5) for non-finance personnel.

The base salary range for this role is between $85,000-$115,000.

About Karat Financial

Banks don’t understand creators. Our customers create content for millions as a full-time career but receive poor service and terrible rates from banks, wasting them both time and money.

We’re building a bank for digital content creators across Instagram, YouTube, Twitch and TikTok, providing them with better rates and savings as their followings grow.

Our team comes from Instagram and Goldman Sachs and we understand these creators are businesses with real income streams along with predictive metrics like fan base, growth, and engagement.

We're backed by investors like YC, Signalfire, Union Square Ventures, Coatue, CRV, and the cofounder of Twitch, and are hiring folks interested in building products at the intersection of fintech and media.
