Accounts Payable Technician

Location: Derwood, Maryland
Date Posted: 10-24-2017
Do you bring out the best in others, and would you love to work in a place where you feel a strong sense of community? XcelHR is a well-established company that's big enough to offer you a strong Benefits package and broad career exposure, yet small enough to know all of your colleagues (and be known) personally. We have company picnics, and holiday parties gathering colleagues at our Rockville, MD headquarters from our West, South & Northeast offices. We work hard and also value work-life balance.

An opportunity exists to join our Accounting team, as an Accounts Payable Technician!

Please consider the following before applying:
Impeccable reliability is required - since our business is deadline-driven and we promise reliability to our clients, punctuality and excellent in-office attendance are very important.
We often work when others don't - there's not much 'down time' in December and January, for instance, so out-of-town holiday travel isn't really feasible.
More horizontal career growth opportunities than vertical - this is an amazing environment for great beginnings and solidifying your current stage of career development. We want you to feel richly connected to all of the learning experiences you could want and need to support your career evolution, whether you find it here or not. 

ARE YOU STILL INTERESTED? Great! Are you also:
• Respectful, understanding and appreciative of all kinds of diversity?
• Kind and emotionally mature?
• Flexible and resilient, with good stress management skills?
• Quick to roll your sleeves up and do what needs to be done?

OK! Read on for more about the position!
