The Role

As Financial Controller for, you will take full ownership of the accounting operations for a rapidly growing blockchain-based online travel agency offering hotels, flights, activities and concierge services. The ideal Financial Controller will have a passion for travel and/or blockchain, and will be looking for an opportunity to make a real difference in a high impact role.

You will report to the VP of Finance and manage one Assistant Controller, as well as working with external contractors, with a view to building the team over time. We’re a remote first company with staff and contributors all over the world, but the VP of Finance and Assistant Controller are both based in western Canada.

This is a challenging role with the opportunity to develop the accounting and reporting function. The VP of Finance has been Controller for the past two years, and will provide the support and guidance needed to make the candidate successful in the role.

The Responsibilities


We have several entities in our corporate structure with several different reporting currencies. This role will not only take control of all internal and external reporting requirements, but also improve systems, controls and efficiency.

  • Issue timely and complete consolidated and stand-alone financial statements
  • Recommend benchmarks against which to measure the performance of company operations
  • Calculate and issue financial and operating metrics
  • Manage the production of the annual budget and forecasts
  • Calculate variances from the budget and report significant issues to management
  • Provide for a system of management cost reports
  • Provide financial analyses as needed
  • Comply with local, state, and federal government reporting requirements and tax filings


The accounting team itself currently has two members, an Assistant Controller and a VP of Finance. The role further requires building relationships with all departments in order to obtain information required for financial statement preparation. You will also work with a variety of external accounting and regulatory advisors.

  • Maintains and enforces a documented system of accounting policies and procedures
  • Manage outsourced functions
  • Oversee the operations of the accounting department, including the design of an organizational structure adequate for achieving the department’s objectives
  • Oversee the accounting operations of subsidiary corporations


Our Assistant Controller manages most of the day to day transactions, so your role here is more managerial. There are some crypto and fiat transactions you’ll manage directly, however, so a strong attention to detail is critical.

  • Oversee accounts payable and receivable
  • Oversee and approve payroll
  • Review and approve bank reconciliations
  • Maintain the chart of accounts
  • Maintain an orderly accounting filing system
  • Maintain a system of controls over accounting transactions
  • Perform some bookkeeping tasks as needed

Your Skills

We are looking for someone who already understands how to be a Controller. The appeal here is the opportunity to use your knowledge to develop and professionalize our accounting and reporting functions. As a remote-first company we all work pretty independently - we want someone with the drive and resourcefulness to get things done.


  • Bachelor’s Degree in Business, Accounting, Finance or related discipline
  • CPA designation or international equivalent, with a public audit training background
  • Minimum 5 years accounting experience in a senior accounting or financial management role with good understanding of what it takes to excel in a Controller position
  • A “roll up the sleeves” attitude that demonstrates a bias towards action and impact
  • Intellectual curiosity and a passion for creative problem-solving, sometimes with incomplete data
  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills
  • Impeccable analytical and organizational skills, attention to detail is critical
  • Self-motivated and self-directed
  • Ability to work closely with a senior management team
  • Takes enormous pride in their work.

Bonus if you also have:

  • Experience in the travel industry
  • A demonstrated passion for crypto / blockchain
  • Experience with remote-first tools and web3 technologies
