About the Role

Onboarding consists of the experience from after payment and becoming a paid member to establishing legal entity for their businesses. It also includes a set up of necessary softwares (i.e. accounting and payroll) to be on “auto-pilot” for Collective’s recurring bookkeeping, accounting, and tax services. All members will experience onboarding and the goal is to have all members and their businesses understand Collective’s services and set up to receive Collective’s recurring services.
