Accounting Lead

London, England, United Kingdom


There’s a big shift in the way people work towards self-employment and entrepreneurship in the UK and around the world.

Coconut is a current account that takes care of accounting and tax. It’s designed specifically for freelancers, self-employed people and small business owners.

We launched our first product in January 2018. We’re at an exciting point in our journey having opened our first 5,000 current accounts. Our mission is to free millions of people around the world from business admin by combining banking and accounting into one simple product.

Our current account and core technology are loved by our customers. Our product is the first of its kind, taking transaction data and automating tax treatments with growing accuracy whilst offering guidance about tax rules. The next phase is to connect customers to world-class accounting services through the app so that they can ask questions or get their accounts reviewed and filed. We want our customers to have everything they need to manage their business in one place.

In order to achieve this, we are looking for a highly driven Accounting Lead to help build and execute our processes for offering accounting services to customers. We plan to deliver this with a mix of in-house resource and partners to transform how our customers experience accounting and tax submissions.

We are looking for an expert in self-employed and small business accounting with a passion for technology. You’ve learned your craft in a fast paced accountancy role, servicing a high-volume of customers and understand the accounting and tax filing process innately. But you love technology and what it can do for people and have always had much bigger ambitions to build something totally new and transformative for your clients.

This is in opportunity to help build a ground-breaking accounting function from scratch supported by a transformative technology platform. You’ll work alongside a product team that is creating highly disruptive and accounting technology. You will service our customers supporting with their accounting needs and design processes to do this. You will use your technical experience, love of customer service and fascination for technology to transform how customers experience accounting and tax.
