Bonfire is an opportunity for you to make an impact and accelerate your career. We’re in a unique position, growing from 40 to over 100 people in the next year. We’re looking for team members who will:

  • Make an impact

The Role

Bonfire is growing their Finance team and looking for an Accountant to join their team. As our Accountant, you will report to Kim Veenstra, Director of Finance.  You will be responsible for performing general accounting duties while having the opportunity to work on initiatives that will have an impact on the overall business, including, developing processes, systems, and reporting to support rapid scale.

This is a brand new role, which means you’ll have the opportunity to carve your own path and be given the autonomy to make an impact. Kim doesn’t like to micromanage so she’ll look to you to own your responsibilities and make recommendations for improvements.  If you have experience in the tech industry it would be huge brownie points, but we’re open to candidates with experience from different industries as well. What’s really important is you come with a positive attitude, excited about learning and can collaborate cross-functionally. Tech can be unpredictable and messy at times, you have to be able to roll with the punches and be adaptable.

If variety in your work and continually learning excites you, we’d love to hear from you!
