Rewind is one of Ottawa’s fastest growing startups. We’re backing up Shopify, BigCommerce and Quickbook Online data in the cloud today and adding new platforms regularly. We are looking for someone with a passion for building big ideas, running with them and helping to build our Rewind brand locally. Ultimately, you’re a self-starter, someone who gets stuff done, and is ready to make a significant impact.


We’re looking for someone to join our team in Ottawa, to help manage our finances and operations in our main office. This person will be responsible for developing and implementing financial policies for Rewind, managing our finances, measuring and providing metrics on the business, and overseeing the operations of our main office. We plan on raising additional funds later in 2019 - this person will be responsible for managing that fund raising.

  • Bachelor of Commerce in Accounting or a related field. An MBA is a plus.
  • CPA, or plans to get one in the next few years (we'll even help you pay for it!)
  • Bookkeeping experience and knowledge. QuickBooks knowledge is a plus
  • Expertise with Microsoft Excel and pivot tables. If you know SQL that's even better
  • An understanding of SaaS metrics
  • Experience in finance and a willingness to learn
  • Up-to-date with the latest trends and best practices in finances and SaaS metrics
