I have tried to find information on what rights the account that starts/stops jobs in the QMC need. I know its easy to say admin it is but is there any other right that is sufficient? We want to limit the accounts with admin rights.
QlikView Administrator rights should be enough.
You can look into the Document Administrator concept:

Re: QlikView Document Administrators - still required?
Service account needs to be part of administrator group and Qlikview administrator group.
Basically to have read and write access to the Qlikview related folders such as logs,qvw files etc.
