About System Six:

System Six was founded in 2008 with two equal missions:

  1. To provide our team members with an excellent place to work, where team members are cared for and treated with respect, afforded flexibility, given room to grow professionally, and compensated at the top of our industry
  2. To provide excellent and modern, cloud-based finance and accounting services to our clients

Thirteen years later, we are extremely proud of the nationwide team we’ve become and the business we are continuing to build.

Today, as we have grown to a 25+ person organization, we remain critically focused on our team and culture. We want each and every team member to experience System Six as a joyful, caring, high-paying career with ample opportunities to grow, and we work feverishly to ensure this experience.

This drive has enabled us to now serve hundreds of customers, ranging from small businesses to nonprofits to eight figure investor-owned businesses to wealthy families and more. And we’re focused on scaling our services and systems further so that we can help hundreds more clients in years to come.

We hope we’ve done a few things right, but we also fundamentally believe there is always better. So we are constantly pursuing new technologies, growing personally and professionally, and love that every day presents a great opportunity for each of us to be more. If this sounds exciting to you, please, join us!
