Are you passionate about creative activism, social movements and Quickbooks? Are you a detail oriented, number-literate activist? Here is an opportunity to work with a network of creative changemakers as they build a more solid organizational foundation for either world domination or financial sustainability, whichever comes first.


Beautiful Trouble is looking for a new financial whiz to step into the giant shoes of our soon-to-be-departing Czar of Numbers (job title self-chosen, open to change), who is leaving us for the greener pastures of law school.

  • Start date: September 1, 2015
  • Pay: $15/hour (with possibility of raise after 6 month review)
  • Hours: 15 hours/week
  • Location: Anywhere there is the interweb, though NYC would be a huge plus

Candidate will be responsible for:

  • Steering the Beautiful Trouble financial ship
  • Developing strategies for financial health and growth
  • Recording day-to-day financial transactions
  • Maintaining the organization’s Quickbooks file and running reports as needed
  • Generating budgets for grant proposals
  • Managing bank accounts
  • Generating 1099’s and W-2’s

Your skills and experience should include:

  • Basic bookkeeping and accounting
  • AP & AR
  • Spreadsheet wizardry
  • Online banking
  • Extreme appreciation for detail
  • A wicked sense of humor
  • Ability to multi-task
  • A love of creative approaches to social change

To apply, please send an e-mail with your resume or equivalent and a short note about why you’d like to work on the project, to this address.

Beautiful Trouble is committed to doing our part in the struggle for collective liberation. We prioritize applications from members of historically oppressed and marginalized groups in all hiring decisions, and strive to foster a working culture in which new hires feel supported and valued.

Yours in trouble, The Beautiful Trouble team
