Description

Position at GVW Group, LLC

 Do you want to be our Investment Accountant?

 

Can you be comfortable being uncomfortable? Are you fine with always speaking your mind? Can you lead, execute, and stay focused despite many distractions, and do the work yourself if needed?

We invest in and grow businesses that disrupt their industries by putting the customers’ needs first. From big data to industrial manufacturing, we deliver tools that transform the work of the people that use them.

It takes a special kind of person to be a part of this business in transformation. We are privately owned and expect our team members to act with an owner mindset: Relentless about creating value for the customer. Dogged about finding efficiencies and eliminating waste. Standing arm in arm with the rest of the team until the job is done, and ready to do it again the next day, with a smile. It is not easy to do things differently. But we do it, because we are passionate about improving our business and the lives of the people who use our tools.
