About Staffbase

At Staffbase we believe that Internal Communication moves people, and people move companies. Our mission is to empower leaders and communicators to drive transformation through internal comms solutions, strategies, and insights. Our most recent Series E funding led by General Atlantic, officially launched us to 🦄  UNICORN 🦄  status!

We’re headquartered in Chemnitz, Germany, with offices in many locations throughout the world, including Vancouver, Kelowna, New York, Amsterdam, London, and several locations in Germany! Our international team counts roughly 600 employees from 45+ nationalities and we have a growing base of 1000+ enterprise customers that want to transform their employee experience. We are rapidly scaling, post-Series E ($115 million funding), have strong-growing revenue, and our customers love us.

We would like to expand the Accounting & Controlling team within our Finance organization and we are looking for someone to lead the North American Accounting & Controlling team (currently 3 people) with passion and willingness to take on responsibility for all things accounting for the North American market.

As a digital first company, we offer greater flexibility in working locations. You would be able to work in a hybrid model from one of our locations, ideally Vancouver. Fully remote option available as well!

The role requires that you can build strong relationships in- and outside the company, move quickly, not be constrained by how things “used to be” and most importantly that you are ambitious, curious, and passionate leading a team on the one hand but also about doing accounting in general on the other hand.


Your tasks include but are not limited to:

  • Heading the NA accounting team 
  • Ownership for timely and accurate financials of our NA entities (SB Inc. US, SB CA Systems Inc. and more to follow)
  • Oversee all full-cycle accounting processes from procure-to-pay, order-to-cash, and record-to-report within NA 
  • Coordination of local statutory (tax) reporting and corporate income tax returns  with internal and external stakeholders for US and Canada
  • Setting up and monitoring our sales and use tax strategy including all processes & tools around evaluating US nexus positions and the collection, remittance, and reporting of local taxes 
  • Pro-actively contribute within the global accounting team which is leading the company-wide IFRS conversion, group consolidation procedures and the general up-leveling of our accounting practices
  • Support the year-end close audit procedures with our Big4 auditors
  • Bring in your experience, ideas, and support regarding the development, optimization and documentation of internal processes and policies
  • Support and proactively participate in special projects such as post-merger integrations

Your profile:

  • CPA (or equivalent) with 5+ years of related experience (could be a team lead, and previously in accounting role progressing into a management role)
  • You would describe yourself as communicative, persistent and eager to improve things
  • Ideally experience working in Big4 (audit or tax) or field accounting in a SaaS environment
  • You enjoy leading a team of currently 3 accounting professionals (and growing!)
  • Previous exposure to IFRS standards
  • You have group consolidation knowledge and are willed to work yourself into the topic, group consolidation experience is a plus
  • You’ve been part of professional audit processes
  • Workday ERP experience is not a must, but also a big plus

Office : Vancouver, Kelowna or remote North America
