About Team Tax
We want to make tax painless (our crazy big goal!).
Our mission is to modernise a traditional tax cost centre into “Tax-as-a-Service” to ‘protect and serve’ the business, the needs of our employees, our investors, global Government and Tax Authorities where we operate, and ultimately the users of Canva’s amazing product. Our guiding principle is to operate in a manner that reflects our core value of being a good global citizen. We want to do all this within a fun and engaging environment that promotes collaboration, forward thinking and continuous improvement, all whilst making tax as painless as possible.
Who we're looking for
As Canva continues on this exciting period of growth and traverses the ever increasing complexity of the tax landscape, there is now a need for another specialist for the Asia Pacific region. If you see the letter T or a cup of tea and immediately think of tax effect accounting (aka TEA) then this is the role for you.
You’ll have broad experience with both Australian and international tax concepts and are keen to expand your knowledge and skills within a commercial setting. Although this is a role for the Asia Pacific region, don’t fret if you only have Australian tax experience. We do not expect you to have international experience as long as you love to learn about different taxes all over the world (but it would be a bonus if you did).
You’ll work closely with the global tax team, other members of the finance team, the broader business and our service providers to ensure that the Group’s global tax obligations are met in all jurisdictions that we operate in.
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, with a strong attention to details and a proactive attitude.
Canva is currently one of Australia’s hottest technology startups and has been the ranked #1 Australian Workplace in Technology by JobAdvisor for the second year in a row. We mean it when we say we want to create a workplace that you love coming to. Our culture is unlike anywhere else and our offices are designed with workspaces for every mood, to help you do great work. At Canva you can be part of a company that is growing rapidly, building a product that users really love.
Being a Force for good.
One of our core values at Canva, “Being a force for good” means we are actively working towards a world that isn't just good for a small few, but one that’s good for everyone. We believe deeply that bringing together diversity of thoughts, perspectives and expression is key for building the best product for our equally diverse community. To achieve this, we need to constantly work towards making Canva the best place to work, for everyone.
