Join the team redefining how the world experiences design.
Hey, g'day, mabuhay, kia ora,你好, hallo, vítejte!
Thanks for stopping by. We know job hunting can be a little time consuming and you're probably keen to find out what's on offer, so we'll get straight to the point.
Where and how you can work
Our flagship office is in Sydney, Australia, but we've made our way from down under, to hubs in Austin and San Francisco, which are now home to our US operations. So whether you're in Texas or California, you have choice in where and how you work in each of those states. That means if you want to do your thing in the office (if you're near one), at home or a bit of both, it's up to you.
What you’d be doing in this role
As Canva scales change continues to be part of our DNA. But we like to think that's all part of the fun. So this will give you the flavour of the type of things you'll be working on when you start, but this will likely evolve.
About the Tax team
We want to make tax painless (our crazy big goal!). Our mission is to modernize a traditional tax cost centre into "tax-as-a-service", to 'protect and serve' the business, the needs of our employees, our investors, global Government and Tax Authorities where we operate, and ultimately the users of Canva's amazing product. Our guiding principle is to operate in a manner that reflects our core value of being a good global citizen. We want to do all this within a fun and engaging environment that promotes collaboration, forward-thinking and continuous improvement, all while making tax as painless as possible.
About the role
As Canva continues on this exciting period of growth and traverses the ever-increasing complexity of the US and international tax landscape, there is now a need to grow the tax function to include a Head of US tax. You'll have a passion for making the complex simple and deep expertise in US corporate and international income tax with extensive knowledge of taxation related to outbound investments and foreign reporting.
This role will include understanding ever-evolving and complex tax laws requiring someone who loves to continuously update their knowledge and share that knowledge with others to build up expertise within the global tax function. We want you to help develop tax knowledge at all levels and enjoy giving and receiving feedback to make a big impact.
Here is a snapshot to help you start imagining your future in this role:
Mission possible: You’ll bring an innovator’s mindset to developing and executing a strategy to monitor and manage Canva’s presence in the US to ensure its smooth global operation and truly make tax as painless as possible to support growth
Complex turned simple: You’ll be a force in Canva’s journey of adopting US GAAP and calculating and preparing accurate tax balances and disclosures
Be a force for good: You’ll become a trusted business partner, embodying our mission of “Tax as a Service” and helping play our part as good global citizens
