Be a Part of the Next Generation of Accountants That Helps Intuit Innovate
Intuit® is actively seeking accounting professionals with a Firm of the Future mindset to roll up their sleeves and help Intuit innovate by participating in our Intuit QuickBooks® Accountant Council. The current Council has open positions starting June 2018. You can apply here; applications are being accepted through April 27, 2018.
For those not familiar, the Accountant Council is a forum that solicits the voice of accountants, bookkeepers and QuickBooks consultants on issues of strategy, product development, programs and services for Intuit’s Accountant Segment, part of the Small Business and Self Employed Group.
The objectives of the Council are to:
- Create a forum where Intuit proactively and intently listens to the voice of accounting professionals to better understand their, and their customers’, points of view on the issues and trends impacting small businesses and the accounting profession.
- Collect input regarding the direction of Intuit’s strategy, product development, programs and services for accounting professionals and their clients.
We’re looking for forward-thinking, future-ready accountants, bookkeepers, QuickBooks consultants and trusted advisors, who use and/or recommend Intuit products and services, and represent a wide range of geographic locations across the United States. Firms of all sizes, and various types of businesses (accounting, consulting, installation and setup, for example), professional designations, verticals and depth of product knowledge, are welcome to apply. Applicants should believe in the promise of cloud technology, the transition into a firm that practices value pricing and active engagement in social media to help market to their prospective clients. Members must be in public practice and they may not participate on any competitors’ advisory forums.
What’s in it for You?
As a Council member, you’ll have the opportunity to interact with Intuit’s senior level executives and product managers about future strategy and upcoming product/service offerings. You will also have the opportunity to network and learn best practices from your Council member colleagues from across the country. New Council members will join a class of eight peers that have just completed the first of their two-year term.
The Accountant Council meets at an Intuit location two times annually, and another two to four times a year via conference calls (phone and/or web cast).
Intuit pay Council members an honorarium of $880 per day for each onsite meeting, and will reimburse members for travel and meal costs for all meetings.

“My journey as an Intuit Accountant Council member was nothing short of memorable. Intuit continues to raise the bar on its commitment to enhancing their partnership with accounting professionals in order to help us empower our small business clients. It was an honor to represent both accountants and small business owners in multiple capacities throughout my tenure. I was able to collaborate with other fellow council members and provide valuable feedback and critical recommendations to various product teams, which ultimately helped fine-tune enhancements to the Intuit applications that we all love and lean on every single day. It was an absolute privilege to witness the selfless, sharp, loyal and dedicated culture at Intuit. In the end, in true Intuit fashion, everything that we accomplished together somehow ultimately benefited their accounting professionals and customers the most. I cannot properly express into words how grateful it was to be a part of this special team.” - Ryan Balfe, CubePros
