Money Maestro: With a seasoned background in accounting, you understand cash-flow projections the way Neo understood the Matrix. You know your way around profit and loss statements the way Lady Gaga knows her way around a melody. You’ve got a razor-sharp eye for spotting financial inaccuracies, and a passion for producing the most insightful financial statements possible.

AND you love a fun, collaborative workplace where you get the chance to help millions of people live their healthiest, happiest lives. If that sounds like you, let’s talk!

AlgaeCal is looking for a Vancouver-based Senior Accountant who can hit the ground running as a valued part of our finance team.

Small print here We’re looking for an experienced senior accountant, so if you’re at the beginning of your career, this isn’t the opportunity for you.

But if it does sound like you…

This job will give you ALL the feels:

At AlgaeCal, we’re driven by a single idea: A world without fear of fracture and bone loss. In the United States, an estimated 54 million people have crumbling bones. And they’re scared. Scared of fractures. Scared of breaks. And, most of all, scared of losing their independence and the ability to live the life they love.

The good news? AlgaeCal has the world’s only natural solution that is clinically-supported to increase bone density. We give hope to thousands of frightened people. If you’re at a place in your career where you’re excited by the chance for your work to have meaning and help make a difference, you’ll find no better place to continue your career than at AlgaeCal.

You’ll love it here:

You’ll be working with a great team. The finance team has been there, done that, and got the t-shirt. And the best part? They’re friendly, funny, and easy to work with.
You’ll use your powers for good. This isn’t one of those jobs that crush your soul with mindless tasks. On the contrary! You’ll help change the lives of people by overseeing a wide range of tasks that spreads a powerful message – bone loss is beatable.
You’ll enjoy a high degree of autonomy. We’ll give you a straightforward set of Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) along with well-defined expectations, allowing you to focus on delivering results.

This job might be for you if you’ve got…

A proven ability to excel at day-to-day accounting functions, and you’ve got a reputation for always sweating the details.
5+ years of accounting experience in an eCommerce environment in an accounting/finance role.
The chops to quickly assume responsibility for our day-to-day accounting needs.
Experience at preparing CRA/IRS/VAT tax filings and working papers.
A degree in accounting and you’re currently pursuing your CPA/CMA designation.
The ability to effortlessly prepare monthly financial statements, reconcile credit cards, monitor expenses, and a million other money-related things. There’s no ifs, ands, or buts about it – you’ll need a solid knowledge of all things accounting/bookkeeping to succeed in this role.
A brain the size of a small planet! In this role, you’ll need to think imaginatively and act strategically to help us improve our financial reporting processes.
A resume that demonstrates your mastery of reporting. Sorry, but if you have to Google what IFRS is; or don’t know what GAAP stands for, this isn’t the position for you.
A good working knowledge of QuickBooks

If you’re reading this and thinking, “Wow, that sounds exactly like me!” We would love to hear from you. If it doesn’t, no worries, but right now we’re only seeking experienced candidates who will immediately light up this role.

What Will You Earn?

The salary for this position starts at $70,000 and can go up to $90,000 depending on your experience. If your salary expectations differ from this range, please let us know!

You’ll also enjoy the following benefits:

A generous healthcare package
Monthly team events and activities
Flexible Stat Holidays with the option to bank days for later use
Weekly team lunches
Hybrid work environment (we work from home 2 days a week)
Casual dress code
Incredible dog friendly, Yaletown office one block from SkyTrain
Professional Development: You’ll get the opportunity to attend professional development conferences or workshops that will enhance your skills, expand your network, and drive your career forward with our support! And of course, we’ll cover your fees, accommodation, travel, meals, and any related materials or resources.

And above all, you’ll join a team that you’ll never want to leave. Culture is everything to us. Yes, we work extremely hard to change as many people’s lives as possible. But we know how to have fun and reward ourselves too.
