Are you excited to be part of a top-tier team?

Then Jobber might be the place for you! We’re looking for a Controller to be part of our Finance department on a 12-month contract.

Jobber exists to help people in small businesses be successful. As featured in the Globe and Mail, we work with home and field service companies to help them better quote, schedule, invoice and collect payments from their customers. Having been named the #2 fastest growing software company in Canada and one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies in 2020, it’s clear we’ve come a long way from our first customer in 2011 – but we’ve just scratched the surface of what we want to accomplish for our customers.   

Our product provides entrepreneurs the flexibility of working in their office or the field and we offer that same opportunity to our employees. You will have the choice to work in either our Edmonton or Toronto offices or remotely anywhere within Canada. We’re committed to ensuring the best experience for all Jobberinos to do impactful work. We weren’t named a top workplace in Canada for nothing!

The team:

The Finance team at Jobber is responsible for anything money related to better help plan, budget, and implement Jobber’s best ideas.

The role: 

Reporting to the Director of Finance, the Controller will manage and oversee all accounting operations for Jobber. As our Controller, you’ll seek to continuously improve internal controls, financial transactions and financial reporting while managing and developing an existing team of talented accounting professionals. 

The Controller will:

  • Manage  a growing team of accountants and optimize results through effective performance management planning.
  • Drive large projects within the Finance team
  • Develop and implement internal control policies and processes
  • Review management accounts against budget and provide variance analysis
  • Oversee month-end and year-end close processes
  • Manage and coordinate the preparation of regulatory reporting and tax filings
  • Provide required financial reports in an accurate and timely manner
  • Identify and provide guidance to staff on ways to improve current processes and data analysis techniques

This role is for a 12-month contract to cover a parental leave. 

To be successful, you should have:

  • 8+ years of overall accounting experience, including 5+ years post CA/CPA experience
  • CA/CPA designation
  • Experience managing a team in a fast-paced environment
  • Experience with NetSuite (or like software) and system implementations
  • Strong understanding of intercompany transactions and consolidations
  • To think big, yet manage the details. You can see the big picture, but are also laser focused on delivery and execution. 
  • Next level communication and relationship building abilities. We move fast, which means you’ll need to build a high degree of trust with peers and key stakeholders. 
  • Ability to communicate and articulate strategic ideas with executives and deliver on high-level concepts. 
  • An incredible passion for our customer and a connection to our purpose – to help small businesses be more successful. 

It would be really great (but not a deal-breaker) if you had:

  • Experience with US GAAP
  • Experience with sales tax in Canada and the US
  • Experience working for a software company
  • Experience working for a publicly traded company

All interviews are currently being conducted virtually – via phone or video.

  • A unique opportunity to build, grow, and leave your impact on a $400-billion industry that has no dominant player…yet.
  • To work with a group of people who are humble, supportive, and give a sh*t about our customers.
