Telnyx is a next-generation Voice over IP (VoIP) provider based out of Chicago. We’ve built a private network using a ‘software first’ approach by leveraging bleeding edge and open source software on top of all the major cloud service providers. We are focused on building a real-time communication platform for developers and application providers to easily integrate voice into their products.


Telnyx is venture-backed and one of the fastest growing startups in Chicago, expanding from 5 employees to 50 employees over the last two years.  In addition to our brand-new Chicago office, Telnyx has expanded internationally with the opening of an office in Dublin, Ireland.  We are seeking our first accounting hire to scale our Business Operations and Finance teams.


As a Startup Accountant, you will assist our Business Operations and Finance teams by entering payables (vendor invoices, credit cards, and expense reports) in our accounting system (QuickBooks) and will help with our month-end accounting close activities (account reconciliations, accruals).  In addition to A/R and A/P responsibilities, you will participate in month-end, quarter-end, and annual financial reporting that will be viewed by professional investors.  Further, you will assist with the documentation of our internal controls and policies while researching, documenting, and applying accounting guidance to assist with system and process improvements and will also complete special projects as needed.


Additionally, you will partner with the team on fixed asset purchasing processes, perform various cost audits, and help manage the financial relationship with our vendors.  The Startup Accountant will also gain executive management exposure while assisting in tax planning for the company.
