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

About the candidate
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 in this space. 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.
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 Group operates 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.
Please note that this role has a big focus on international tax in addition to Australian tax. Whilst we will not expect you to be an expert in foreign tax laws, we do expect a broad understanding of international tax concepts. We will be looking for someone who is keen to expand their capability in the international tax arena as well as wanting exposure in other fields of Australian tax such as transfer pricing, fringe benefits tax and tax controversy.
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.
