JOB DESCRIPTION

At Canva, we create tools that empower the world to design. Our mission is to democratise design and empower creativity for anyone and everyone, on every platform! Inspired by a team of talented thinkers, an amazing culture and remarkable growth trajectory – we’re out to change the world, one design at a time.


Since launch in April 2013 we have grown exponentially, amassing over 35 million users across 179 different countries who have created more than 200 million designs. We are one of the world’s fastest growing technology companies and we have only achieved about 1% of what we are capable of!


About the team

The finance team’s mission is to protect and serve Canva and its key stakeholders; that is protecting Canva from external pressures and risks whilst balancing the need to best serve our teams.


The vision is for Canva to be recognised and commended by its peers and stakeholders as having a world-class finance team.


As part of this team you will have the opportunity to:

  • Gain experience working at the headquarters of one of the world’s fastest growing tech companies; your work will impact millions of Canva’s global users
  • Learn from and work with some of Australia's best talent, including Canva’s founders, engineers, product and growth professionals
  • Develop and grow in an inaugural role with the ability to make decisions that impact the development of the business


About the candidate

The finance team’s mission is to protect and serve Canva and its stakeholders. As Canva continues on its rapid trajectory of growth, the need to provide the finance team and the wider business with timely financial and strategic insights increases. A team member with a background in strategy and analysis is essential if the finance team is to quickly and accurately report key insights to Group Leadership and founders to help them to make real-time business decisions.


As the finance teams duties and activities continue to develop and expand to support the growth of the business across multiple geographies and products, there is now a requirement for a dedicated Financial Analyst to help support the Finance team as well as Group Leadership with specific modelling and forecasting needs.


About the Role

Working within the Strategy and Analysis team, this role will be responsible for all things modelling-related, including maintaining and improving the Canva financial model, building operational models for different groups within Canva and scenario modelling to assist with strategic decision-making. As this role will understand metrics and performance of our groups intimately, they will also play a key role in supporting other groups within finance and the wider business.


We’re a fast moving business so change is frequent, you’ll be comfortable working in a hands on, dynamic environment and have excellent communication & negotiation skills.


Reporting to the Leadership Team, the core responsibilities of the role include:

  • Building and maintaining models as well as analysis, reporting and relationship building with key stakeholders in the wider company.
  • Consistently innovate and evolve Canva’s forecasting processes and improve forecasts as necessary for our rapidly growing business.
  • This person will be key in developing and maintaining modelling for our Groups, working closely with Finance Business Partners to ensure strategic initiatives are modelled, sense-checked and understood in the context of Canva’s overall strategy and mission.
  • Monitoring and reporting on performance vs goals set by individual teams and the company.
  • Working with Data Analysts and automating retrieval of data to the fullest extent possible.
  • Working with the broader Strategy & Analysis team to democratise strategic thinking and support groups in the goal setting / monitoring process.
  • Ad-hoc involvement and support in wider strategic initiatives through providing modelling and forecasting expertise.


What we look for:

  • At least 2+ years of relevant experience in a role primarily focused on modelling, financial analysis or scenario-based analysis.
  • Candidates currently working in Deals Modelling or Valuation teams in an Accounting / Corporate Advisory firm will definitely be considered, however a majority of the role's modelling work will be bottoms-up, operational and scenario-based modelling;
  • Experience in analysing large volumes of data and building forecast models, being a wizard at Excel is a must;
  • Strong business acumen with problem-solving creativity and commercial judgement;
  • Degree level qualification in a relevant field such as commerce, finance, accounting, management or economics;
  • Highly organised with the ability to work under pressure and within set deadlines;
  • Exceptional communication and stakeholder management skills;
  • Self motivated with a desire to learn;
  • Experience with analytical tools or SQL would be an advantage


If you are a commercially-minded Excel whiz with a keen eye for detail and passion for modelling then this could be the role for you. You will enjoy upholding high standards of excellence and integrity in the services you deliver and have a strong desire to keep learning and growing. Operating in a fast paced environment you will be able to adapt quickly, manage workloads to meet deadlines with support and oversight. You will have excellent communication skills and approach tasks with a problem solving attitude, with a constant lens of continuous improvement.
