Octopus Deploy is one of Australia's fastest-growing software companies (and we're taking on the world). After bootstrapping for a decade, in 2021, we quietly raised Australia's second-largest ever venture capital raise, accepting a USD 172M minority investment from Insight Partners.

Due to the company's continued exponential growth, we are looking for an experienced Accountant to join our remote team.

Reporting to the CFO, you will be responsible for the day-to-day running of finance and accounting at Octopus, ensuring that everything we do is in accordance with accounting standards, company policies, legislative requirements, and industry best practices.

With operations in Australia, the US, the UK, and New Zealand, this role is an excellent opportunity for an experienced Accountant wanting to join a fast-growing company and take ownership of this area of the business.

What is this role about?
    • Handle monthly, quarterly, and annual closings
    • Reconcile accounts payable and receivable
    • Ensure timely bank payments
    • Monitor the day-to-day financial operations such as payroll, invoicing, and other transactions
    • Ensuring that the company's statutory reporting, annual audit requirements, and tax obligations are met
    • Lodging GST, BAS, US Sales Taxes, and other returns
    • Maintaining strong financial controls while mitigating financial and operational risk including leading the internal audit reviews

Who are we looking for?
    • You live in Brisbane
    • You possess impeccable attention to detail
    • 3+ years of relevant accounting experience
    • Strong work ethic and a keen eye for detail
    • You are self-motivated and can work effectively in a remote environment.
    • You are organised and efficient, manage competing priorities, and double-check your own work.
    • CA/CPA qualification is highly desirable

Why Is This A Great Opportunity?
    • We offer great benefits, including generous laptop and home office allowances, plus stock options!
    • We value transparency and fairness in every aspect of our business. For example, Paul (our CEO) shares monthly updates on company performance, and our pay structures are designed to pass the 'printer test'.
    • Trust and autonomy. Octonauts are treated like adults and are trusted to find the best way of working for the task at hand, without managers looking over their shoulder.
    • You'll be joining a high-growth company with numerous opportunities to learn and advance your career.
    • Remote first: work from wherever you feel most productive.
    • We are a supportive company where everyone's contribution is valued.
    • We respect and encourage work/life balance.

Equal Opportunity
    • We've built an inclusive workplace culture and understand the true importance of culture-add, versus culture-fit.
    • From day 1, you'll have a buddy helping you get your bearings. You can book in coffee chats with anyone in the company. We encourage everyone to have a voice in all aspects of the product and the business. So much so that we have an open chat policy (all channels are public by default) and everyone is welcome!
    • Also when it comes to inclusivity, we mean it, check out our handbook!
    • If you'd like to work at Octopus, reach out and say hello!

How To Apply
    • You must have ongoing unrestricted work rights in the relevant job ad location (Australia, New Zealand, United States, United Kingdom) to apply for this opportunity.
    • Submit a CV - your LinkedIn profile is also acceptable as long as it contains enough information for us to assess your fit for the role.
    • We welcome any other relevant documents or portfolios necessary to showcase your skillset and why you think you'd be a great fit here at Octopus.

About the company

We make Octopus Deploy, software that enables teams to deliver working software to production. We've become the "best in class" tool in our category by focusing on doing one thing and doing it very well. Founded in 2012, we have helped 25,000 companies to automate complex deployments, and we employ 200+ wonderful people.

We're a growing, profitable business. Our goal is to build a company that will last forever while enjoying the journey and doing work that we're proud of. Our business model is all around understanding our customers, building great software, backing it up with great support and customer service, and making it incredibly easy to discover, learn and use. After bootstrapping for a decade, we quietly raised Australia's second-largest ever venture capital raise, accepting a USD $172M minority investment from Insight Partners.

Most of our team is based in Brisbane, Australia, where the company started, though we've spread to other parts of Australia, the US, NZ and the UK. Because our team is distributed, everyone works from home, so we've built a remote-first culture.

We've made our company handbook public, and it's a great guide to how we think about just about everything - including career progression and compensation, our vision and what we care about, how our company is structured, feedback loops, training, remote work and more. Please take a read of our handbook, and reach out if you think there is a good fit.
