Stake is looking for a Senior Accountant specialised in Self Managed Super Funds (SMSF) to join our team in Sydney. Stake is more than a brokerage, we’re a global brand that stands for progress. This is true for our customers but also for our team members.

Stake is not just changing the game when it comes to share trading, we’re also opening up the world of SMSF to an entire new generation of self-directed investors. Following the amazing launch of Stake Super earlier this year, we’re growing rapidly and reinvesting into a true next generation SMSF product. This role is an opportunity to work closely with the leadership team and customer base to deliver this vision.

Stake offers an exciting working environment where everyone is challenged to work with a focus on high-quality execution. It’s collaborative and high energy. It’s a supportive environment where people are encouraged to take ownership, try things and grow from them. Our internal mantra is ‘never settle’ and we all share an ambition to do whatever it takes to grow this business forward. This is your opportunity to join a global brand rocketing forward and a team hungry to shake up a category.

So if you’re a passionate person who’s looking to join a team that shares these values and are laser-focused on building something epic; Stake is for you.

About this role

In this role, you will be responsible for preparing the annual financial statements and tax returns for a rapidly growing portfolio of SMSF customers. You will leverage your SMSF industry expertise to guide our dedicated customer success team and deliver an outstanding experience to Stake’s customers. You will report to the Head of Stake’s SMSF product and act as their 2IC as the business scales in 2022 and beyond.

A bit about you

We’re looking for an Accountant with the following interests and experiences:

  • A passion for Self-Managed Super Funds and the willingness to make your mark in the industry;
  • At least 5 years of experience as an SMSF specialist or in public accounting with a focus on SMSF;
  • Excellent communication skills and a willingness to liaise Stake’s customers, auditors and internal stakeholders;
  • Experience with Class or BGL mandatory.

At Stake, we value hustle over honours degrees, so we’re more interested in you than your resume and if that means that we have to show you the ropes along the way, we’re happy to take you on the journey! So if you believe this is a role you want to jump into head first and be part of our mission, please apply and let us know why in your cover letter.
