Experience with IT/software is advantageous as it’s what we specialise in, and you will be using technology to solve problems. You will have multiple career pathway opportunities, but it is entirely up to you to make this job your own and steer your own direction.

The ideal candidate has shown ambition to grow and is a self-starter, not willing to settle. You will be encouraged to develop your technical and interpersonal skills where you will constantly be challenged on a day to day basis.

  • Excellent technical accounting skills and intermediate Excel (V-lookups, pivot tables)
  • Hungry, creative, enthusiastic, and data-driven with a diverse skill set to thrive in an environment of fast growth and ambiguity
  • Experience with NetSuite ideal but not essential

  • Remote-first and flexible working arrangements
  • Our Sydney office is dog friendly and remains open for team meetings, collaboration days and those who need a day away from their home office (we are a COVID-safe workspace for those who choose to use it)
