Summary

High-growth? Technology? Start-up?

Canva is all of the above! A truly unique opportunity to watch the takeoff of a paradigm shifting business and help contribute to its success.

Finance function in that kind of environment is a rare, challenging and personally rewarding journey.

On one hand, I help manage the HR/Legal/Finance day to day operations, on the other I, We (as a function) and We (as a company) need to make sure that the foundation is in place to help support the accelerating pace of growth. Things that worked a few months before will break, processes that you do now may not work at a structural level, and if something is working well and scales - it's exciting to think how we can double down on that success. The pace is quick, challenges are demanding, successes are exhilarating, if you know how startups are - you get me.

In my past life, I was exposed to consulting and internal audit with extensive international experience in United States, Switzerland, Australia, UK, and Russia. As a part of a public cloud accounting practice, I also specialized in scaling startups by setting up processes and success routines, mostly accounting related, but not exclusively so.

Feel free to reach out, if you are an accounting professional or love startups we have a lot in common! You can also find my on Quora!
