Only 22% of students from low-income communities earn a college degree, compared to 67% of their peers from high income areas. At OneGoal, we believe that all students – not just those with the best grades or the most resources – have the ability and deserve the opportunity to earn a college degree. What’s more, we have developed a solution that works, and we believe this problem is solvable within our lifetime.
We are looking for individuals who will join OneGoal during this unique window in time:
You believe – and your work has demonstrated your belief – that all students can earn a college degree and the life that comes with it. The Staff Accountant is a member of the Finance and Operations team, which is charged with building and managing the systems, processes and policies necessary to become a scalable, sustainable, and enduring organization over the next five years.
As the Staff Accountant, your mission is to maintain the day-to-day accounting of the organization. Your primary responsibilities will include:

You value working collaboratively and innovatively.
Guided by a clear set of core values and beliefs, you will join an impressive group of more than 150 OneGoal staff across the country who believe in the untapped potential within students. The OneGoal team challenges themselves and others to regularly ask, “Is there a better way?”
