SummerWinds is looking for a dynamic, business-oriented, full-time accounting manager who can take over the management of our small but vital accounting team. This job works out of our Boise, Idaho office with some opportunities for partial work from home.

Future growth into a Controller role is available for the right candidate.

If you are great at leading a team, can ensure that that team produces accurate and timely financials, and have the ability to use those financials & your insights to help our executive team make decisions, this might just be the job for you.

About Our Company

SummerWinds Garden Centers is a leading high-end retailer of garden and nursery products. With headquarters in Boise, Idaho, SummerWinds operates retail nurseries in the greater Phoenix area of Arizona, and in the Bay Area of California, ranking as one of the largest independent retail nursery companies in the nation.

Here is what one of our former employees posted online:

"Incredibly refreshing and enjoyable! - Working at Summer Winds has definitely added something of great and sincere value to my life, inside and outside the workplace. My fellow employees worked excellently with our entire team, management was just and fair and sincerely cared about who worked for their company. The environment was fast-paced and could be stressful at times, but it was very easy to pick up the skills and time management necessary to breeze through even the most trying of situations. Being serious and proud of my position, I found it to be second nature to simply pick up all aspects of the job in order to do my best, and I used my knowledge and skills to fully benefit my customers and fellow employees alike. I feel working with SummerWinds was more of being part of a family than just an associate."
