Senior Controller / Director of Accounting and Tax

Vancouver, BC
We're looking for a top-tier Senior Controller / Director of Accounting and Tax to have full ownership of preparation of financial statements and variance analyses. You’ll play a key role in growing a business through your insights, and you’ll help shape the way a revolutionary new technology is introduced to and adopted by new audiences. Every day, you’ll collaborate with a world-class team (and some very cute dogs) in our Vancouver office.

Every one of us shares a common vision: to create the future we want to live in. We need the right people to help us realize that vision.

A little about us:
Axiom Zen is the venture studio behind several successful startups including Dapper Labs (the makers of CryptoKitties, the most popular blockchain game), ZenHub (the world’s leading developer-focused project management platform), Routific (the world’s leading route optimization engine), and many others. Formed in February 2018, Dapper Labs was spun out of Axiom Zen to spread the benefits of decentralization through the power of play, fairness, and true ownership. Notable investors in Dapper Labs include Andreessen Horowitz, Union Square Ventures, Venrock, Google Ventures, Samsung, and the founders of Dreamworks, Reddit, Coinbase, Zynga, and AngelList, among others.

Axioms are humble and curious entrepreneurs, builders, and tinkerers who share a passion to demystify blockchain technology and tap its potential to create change in the world. Our people are our greatest strength: our diverse crew flourishes in a distributed hierarchy where personal autonomy and professional growth are encouraged. We value our culture above else: regardless of where you came from, what you studied, or who you used to work for, your role here will necessitate both a high level of creativity and strategic thinking on complex issues. Everyone here is a founder, and no one fits in a box. We’re all driven by an insatiable thirst for learning and development, and that’s what brings us together.
What we’ll accomplish together:
  • Full ownership of preparation of financial statements and variance analyses across all companies.
  • Partner with CFO in FP&A and forecasting to drive strategy across the organization.
  • Reporting responsibilities for all tax filings, including but not limited to income taxes, GST / PST, and VAT in foreign jurisdictions, where applicable.
  • Proactive oversight of all tax strategies, federal and provincial tax incentives, and other economic programs for funding / R&D incentives.
  • Optimizing reporting and financial / accounting policies to support the overall corporate structure - including transfer pricing, management of third party service providers (including assurance services in preparation for an audit process in 2019 / 2020).
A little about you:
  • BBA Accounting or equivalent required.
  • Completion of CPA required.
  • Extensive knowledge of reporting standards, including ASPE, IFRS, and US GAAP.
  • Successful growth with a company from $10 million in revenue to over $100 million preferred (from 100 employees to 500+) preferred.
  • Strong mentoring and coaching abilities.
  • Willingness to roll up sleeves and tackle tasks directly.
