Company Description

Join the team redefining how the world experiences design.

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 office is in Sydney, Australia, but we've made our way from down under, to hubs in Austin and San Francisco, which are now home to our US operations. So whether you're in Texas or California, you have choice in where and how you work in each of those states. 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.

We are looking for an Revenue Accounting Manager, who is highly motivated to solve complex problems and deliver exceptional customer service to internal and external partners. The successful candidate will be a team player, collaborating with finance and sales leaders within the organization to support the company's overall strategic objectives and growth plans.

Reporting to Finance Leadership, you will collaborate with teams across the United States, Australia and the Philippines to help us on our mission to deliver best in class quote to cash. You will take part in contract reviews, revenue recognition, billing and collections, and month-end close.

What you'll do:

  • Support the sales team, revenue operations group, and customers for B2B, ensuring best-in-class quote-to-cash processes all while providing an excellent customer experience.
  • Review enterprise sales contracts and ensure appropriate revenue recognition treatment in accordance with ASC 606.
  • Manage month-end close for enterprise sales to ensure revenue journal entries are recorded timely and accurately per US GAAP and internal policies.
  • Identify opportunities for process optimization and automation within the quote to cash process, implementing best practices to enhance efficiency and accuracy.
  • Collaborate with the Sales and Success and IT teams around enhancements to our contract management and billing and collection systems, to ensure GAAP and SOX compliance.
  • Work closely with the SOX lead and Accounting team to document processes and establish key controls within the quote-to-cash cycle to ensure compliance and risk management.
  • Compile and analyze quote-to-cash data, producing regular reports, metrics and insights for management and relevant partners.

You're probably a match if:

  • You have a Bachelor's degree in Finance, Accounting, Business Administration, or a related field. CPA is a plus.
  • You have in-depth knowledge of revenue recognition based on the requirements of ASC 606 (US GAAP).
  • Have proven experience in custom contract reviews, subscription billing processes and systems, invoicing, and collections strategies.
  • You are an expert in project management, system design and implementation.
  • You come with excellent communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to effectively collaborate with internal and external partners.
  • You have proven analytical and creative problem-solving skills, with the capacity to identify issues and implement solutions proactively.
  • You have the ability to thrive in a dynamic environment, with the ability to manage multiple tasks, priorities and deadlines.
