Hiring a Senior Accountant / Senior Fund Analyst

Join the Square Peg team

Square Peg is a global venture capital firm whose mission is to back the most outstanding entrepreneurs solving important problems. When done well, we know that this helps to create world-changing and industry-defining businesses such as Prospa, Fiverr and PropertyGuru whom – along with thirty other ambitious companies – we are proud to partner with.

As a team, we have built, financed and worked in startups that are global success stories. We know what it's like to sit on both sides of the table. As a result, we are passionately committed to building a venture firm that is the world's best for entrepreneurs, investors and our team. Currently, we invest over half a billion dollars into early- stage companies from our offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Tel Aviv and Boston.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, disability status or sporting team affiliation.

Role

This will be a diverse role in which you will take ownership for all aspects of fund / financial accounting, corporate accounting, and financial reporting, monthly board and management reporting, forecasting, budgeting, financial planning and analysis, financial modelling, tax and structuring.

You will report to the Chief Operating Officer.

This is a dynamic business, anticipating further strategic evolution and you will be responsible for the organisation and management of finance related projects as they arise. The potential to expand your remit to include other matters currently covered by the COO is a given for the right candidate.

This role will be based in Woollahra, Sydney.

Qualifications / Experience

It is crucial you are an independent thinker with energy and enthusiasm to effect positive outcomes both operationally and commercially in a high growth business.

You will work effectively across the business and build collaborative relationships with internal and external stakeholders. You will also manage the fund financial statement audit and annual tax distribution preparation process as well as participating in improving the accuracy and efficiency as the company grows.

This varied role would suit a CPA/CA qualified candidate (Big 4 trained highly desirable), with a proven track record derived from investment/funds management. Prior experience within a funds management environment, especially private equity or venture capital, would be advantageous but is not a prerequisite. It is essential that you can build strong and effective relationships both internally and externally and have demonstrated success in investment and fund management. Successful applicants will be able to display a proven technical finance and fund accounting background including corporate accounting.

We expect you will have 5+ years of experience.
