Hey, g'day, mabuhay, kia ora,你好, hallo, vítejte!

Thanks for stopping by. We know job hunting can be a little time consuming and you're probably keen to find out what's on offer, so we'll get straight to the point.

Where and how you can work

Our flagship campus is in Sydney. We also have a campus in Melbourne and co-working spaces in Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide. But you have choice in where and how you work. That means if you want to do your thing in the office (if you're near one), at home or a bit of both, it's up to you.

What you’d be doing in this role

As Canva scales change continues to be part of our DNA. But we like to think that's all part of the fun. So this will give you the flavour of the type of things you'll be working on when you start, but this will likely evolve.

  • Build modelling and conduct analysis to forecast spend and for procurement negotiations
  • Lead planning discussions and project reviews to align on the financial impact of cost initiatives, providing larger picture view on margin impact

  • Identify and articulate linkage between operational activities and financial performance
  • Present monthly financial outcomes, quarterly reviews, and annual budget outputs
  • Effectively communicate and share financial literacy to non-financial stakeholders

We'd love it if you had

  • Prior finance experience in a SaaS/technology business preferred, with a particular focus on Cloud Infrastructure finance (working knowledge of SaaS/Cloud business models)
  • Proficiency with financial modelling and analysis tooling (Excel, Power BI, Anaplan, Tableau)
  • Abundant intellectual curiosity and commerciality that drives you to proactively identify opportunities and solve challenging problems
  • A strong ability to see the opportunity in a high change environment, and operate in ambiguity
  • Exceptional communication skills that enables you to quickly build rapport with leaders and challenge the status quo where appropriate.
  • Team oriented mindset, with the ability to collaborate and seek feedback from team members
  • Experience in budgeting, financial forecasting and P&L management, as well as the ability to generate engagement with non-finance stakeholders.
  • The ability to ideate on and demonstrate the value of FP&A to the business beyond core P&L and budget functions.
