Full time

At Chuck Levin’s, we rely on a meticulous financial system to drive business forward. Our Accounts Receivable department keeps that system running smoothly by managing cash influx and collecting payment from clients. We’re searching for a skilled financial specialist to join our Accounts Receivable team to help process, track, and record payments in an accurate, efficient, and timely manner. The Accounts Receivable Coordinator will have both a day-to-day and ongoing impact on financial transactions - keeping us on track, on time, and on good terms with our valued customers.

Chuck Levin's Washington Music Center is well into our sixth decade of operation and is proud to be the largest family-owned music retailer in the nation. Our customers range from daily shoppers to renowned performance, academic, and federal institutions. The workplace is incredibly fast-paced but very casual, with a long-standing and tightly-knit small Accounting department. You don't have to love music to work here, but it certainly doesn't hurt!

This is a fulltime position Monday-Friday with benefits to include health, dental, life insurance, 401(k), paid vacation, and sick leave. This is the perfect role for someone who values the stability and flexibility of a legacy family-owned business but loves a bustling work environment that will keep you active and engaged at all times.

Salary is negotiable based on experience.
