Accounting Associate, Accounts Payable

Making more from less is just what we do: more of that home-cooked quality from a smaller-scale, allergy-friendly bakery, and more community and personal impact from the small, everyday choices we’re making to live our values of betterment through mindfulness, and collaboration through transparency. Because delicious food doesn’t have to be at odds with nutrition or safety, and at 88 Acres we’re growing that change seed by seed.

88 Acres is a true growth-stage startup. We are a lean team of passionate foodies who punch above our weight. What does that mean? It means that everyone on our team wears many hats, gives 110% effort every single day, solves problems, innovates and has a ton of fun.

We produce a variety of seed-based foods right here in Boston - bars, butters, seednola, dressings - selling through a multitude of distribution channels - distributors, discovery retail, online, food service, and partners such as JetBlue and Jamba.
