Thrillworks Careers

Director of Finance
Toronto/Burlington, Ontario, Canada

Introduction

Thrillworks is looking to level up our management team by adding a proven financial professional who believes the impossible is possible and is looking to be part of the team that will change what it means to be a Digital Agency. 

We consider this a critical role in our transformation and continued growth. With the pace, we have set and scale we aspire to, finding the right person to fulfill this role is critical to drive our finance capabilities to new levels.  

As the successful individual, you are unapologetic and driven, steadfast with your opinions, and not afraid of healthy conflict - you tell it like it is. You have likely spent time working for a large international accounting firm and want to have more influence and control over decisions and the ability to drive actual change. Perhaps you’ve come from the audit department where you have developed a keen eye for detail and a desire to do more with your insights than just providing the mothership with data. You may have spent time in Merger and Acquisitions where your true powers are not being leveraged and you are ready to take your ability to assess what makes a company valuable to the next level.  

We are less concerned about the title of this position than we are in finding someone who is looking for an opportunity to unleash their thought leadership and break free from constraints placed on them by larger and more rigid institutions.
