A month ago
ERP Implementation Role. Excellent career opportunity for a systems savvy accounting & finance professional with implementation experience who is eager to work with a technology company. This successful, growing, and well-established company has a great team culture that emphasizes customer service and giving back. This is a full-time permanent employee role, and can be based from anywhere in Canada! This company is officially certified as a “GREAT PLACE TO WORK.”

Who- the Company: 

Our client is a reputable technology company with operations across Canada. They are well-established and work with a variety of high-profile customers and partners. The company is very values-based and puts an emphasis on giving back time, money, and services to the local communities in which they work. They were recently recognized on Canada’s “Great Place to Work” list! 

What- the Role: 

Our client is seeking a new ERP Implementation Consultant for their accounting & finance portfolio. This is a net-new headcount due to establishing new clients and continued growth and success of the company. Several people working in this capacity for the company were previously Accountants, Controllers, Financial Systems Analysts, etc. 
The Specialist will manage several client projects at once and ensure on-time, in-scope, and on-budget project delivery. They will be the liaison between the clients, the internal technology team, and the internal sales team. The projects will primarily involve the implementation of Sage Intacct and other cloud-based Sage products for small and midsize companies across Canada. The Consultant will collaborate with the team to analyze, assess, design, document, configure, and validate in the lead up to delivery of software solutions for diverse clients (both existing clients and brand-new clients), from demo stage right through to implementation execution and go-live.

Who- the Candidate:  

We are looking for an Accounting & Finance professional, or perhaps a Payroll professional, who has experience with at least 2 system implementations (preferably cloud-based systems). Experience working in consulting firm with a varied portfolio of clients is highly preferred, although individuals who have in-house implementation experience and who are very interested in this type of opportunity will also be very seriously considered. Experience consulting to, or working in, small-to-midsize business (SMB) is an asset, as is experience working for an NPO.

Longer-term, there are a few offices in main cities in Canada this employee can be based out of, or they can continue to work full-time from home.
