Job description

As a Finance Manager at Linktree, you'll be a unique combination of being highly organised and detail orientated but at the same time, extremely comfortable with ambiguity. Your plan for the day might be thrown out the window at 9am and that's fine with you. This isn't a do the tasks on the job description kind of role. It's constantly evolving, changing, and growing due to the nature of a scaling startup. 

Our Finance Director Dom needs a Finance friend as he is doing a lot by himself, someone proactive that can identify tasks that need doing before they are asked to do them. A skill set broad enough that you can lend yourself to a wide range of tasks, from payroll (local and international), expenses, budgeting and reporting through to preparing investor reports. Linktree went through a Series A raise last year and we've grown from 20 to 60 staff in the past 12 months and Dom has been doing 90% of the finance-related tasks himself. 

Processes will be a big thing in this role. Identify where we can be more efficient, find the solution and set those processes up. 

Amongst the chaos of a growing startup is amazing people, flexibility - including where you are based, our head office is in Melbourne but you don't have to be - and interesting problems to solve.


Job requirements:

  • Must have experience within SaaS startups in finance/accounting roles, to be familiar with some of the processes and be used to the speed of change
  • CPA/CA qualifications would be ideal
  • At least 4 years experience in Finance/Accounting roles
  • Commercial experience with tools like Xero, AirWallex, Chargbee & GoogleSheets
  • Be highly adaptable to change
  • Experience in preparing reporting for investors
  • Can demonstrate examples of processes improvements made in previous roles

What you'll be doing:

  • Monthly Payroll, Employee setup and related HR processes
  • Management of payment platforms and payment methods for subscriptions across our tech stac
  • Support Budgeting, forecasting and various financial modeling as required
  • Banking and Supplier payments
  • Revenue Recognition
  • Ensuring an accurate set of accounting records in accordance with accounting standards

We hire with a people-first approach, so more importantly as a human, you will be collaborative, curious, enjoy solving complex problems and have empathy for the growing pains of a rapidly scaling startup.

Linktree's company culture and values are based around collaboration, diversity, inclusion, and flexibility. Those are all nice words but to give you some more specific examples:

  • We are a family-friendly and flexible work environment with our team with a number of our team working hours around school and home commitments.
  • We have several diversity and inclusion initiatives underway, including a D&I council, training for all staff on neurodiversity and the incorporation of a transgender inclusion policy.
  • Our team is diverse across age, gender, and race and we are very proud of that.
  • Due to COVID we are all remote but even when COVID is behind us, we will be a mixed remote and in-office company. With our team already spread across 8 locations and 3 countries, we will always be some form of remote.
  • We prioritise our team's mental health, with all employees have free access to Smiling Mind & Uprise, including 1:1 coaching sessions from qualified psychologists or counsellors.
