Senior Accountant


Fully flexible hours

Job Description

What do we do?

Paddle offers SaaS companies a completely different approach to their payments infrastructure. Instead of assembling and maintaining a complex stack of payments-related apps and services, we’re a Merchant of Record for our customers, taking away 100% of the pain of payments fragmentation. It’s faster, safer, cheaper, and, above all, way better.

In May 2022, we joined forces with ProfitWell. ProfitWell provides BI solutions that improve retention and monetization automatically through unmatched subscription intelligence. As one team and one platform, we offer the "done for you" approach to SaaS payments, billing, and growth.

We’re backed by investors including KKR, FTV Capital, Kindred, Notion, and 83North and serve over 3000 software sellers in 245 territories globally.

The Role:

We are looking for a Senior Accountant with mid-level experience who has a passion for numbers, financial reporting, problem solving and process improvement & automation. This is an ideal role to develop your career in a fast growing and dynamic tech environment!

You will form part of a very collaborative and energetic finance team and report directly to our Financial Controller. The role will be fast-paced and varied and will allow plenty of opportunity for personal and professional development as Paddle continues to grow. Strong time management skills and excellent communications skills are key to succeed in this role.

What you'll do:

  • Ownership of PL & Balance Sheet reconciliations and reviews

  • Deep-dive into current processes and drive process improvements, efficiency & automation
  • Support in the implementation of a new financial system
  • Assisting with the year-end audit process and ad-hoc projects as and when required
  • Work closely with the FP&A team when drafting analytical commentary
  • Support in leadership and growth of junior team members
  • Provide support with other matters where needed

We'd love to hear from you if you are:

First we assess the flexibility options Paddle provides and then we anonymously survey a statistically significant proportion of their employees to make sure Paddle is as flexible as they say they are.

What employees are saying

"Paddle have always offered a flexible working from home policy, and with the impact of COVID-19, they have strengthened their approach to this culture. We have an office available if we want to work around the team, or we can work from home whenever we like. It's a great balance! The parental leave is also awesome, we're super dog friendly and have some excellent benefits. I never feel pressured to work particular hours or stress that I have to be in an office."
