About the role

Canva is look for a qualified CA/CPA with a keen eye for detail and a strong desire to learn. You have a strong sense of ownership and approach tasks with a problem solving attitude, focused on continuous improvement. You’re someone that loves creating clarity from chaos. When operating in a fast paced environment, you’re able to adapt quickly, manage workloads and meet deadlines with support and oversight. You excel at all forms of communication, being able to clearly communicate insights and ideas in oral and written form to both finance & non-finance stakeholders. 

Day-to-day you'll be the owner of global marketing spend and will be responsible for:

  • Reporting across all of our campaigns and paid channels, including commentary and insights
  • Budget tracking, reporting and post-completion analysis for our major tentpole campaigns
  • Supporting planning activities, such as annual budgeting and monthly forecasting with the central team that maintains the overall forecast model
  • Helping weave the story and interpret what both financial & non-financial metrics are telling us about performance, and where risks/opportunities lie
  • Be the key driving force for process improvement – identifying areas of improvement, both financial & operational, and helping us take the business on a journey
  • Act as a key stakeholder for the operational marketing team – helping monitor spend and performance, giving them complete transparency and flagging potential risks
  • Ad hoc involvement in wider finance projects and other business partnering.

Key skills we’re looking for

To be successful in this role, you’ll bring with you:

  • Communication skills (written & verbal)
  • Innovative problem solving
  • Financial modelling & reporting skills
  • Stakeholder engagement skills.

About Canva

Before Canva, creating a professional looking design was a complex process - you had to purchase expensive software; learn how to use it; purchase stock photography and fonts for the software; decide on a layout; slice images; receive photos and content via email; design something; upload and email the pdf only to find revisions needed to be made … and then finally be able to prepare your design for web or print.

Since launching in August 2013, Canva has been changing the way in which we communicate. Today our design tool has attracted over 15 million happy users across 190 countries, who have collectively created more than 1 billion designs.

At Canva, we believe that everyone has the power to achieve goals, push through challenges, learn new skills and develop exciting ones, regardless of how many years of experience they have on their resume. You’ll be supported by a global team of big-thinkers who are also on their own journey to pursuing excellence.
