We launched in 2013 and have grown to an international team of more than 200 people who are motivated by next-generation technology and design, supporting over 280 million registered users on our desktop and mobile apps across all major platforms.

About the Role

We’re looking for a Finance Business Partner to liaise between our Finance department and Senior Leadership team, influencing strategic and operational decision-making by providing comprehensive advice regarding the performance of, and opportunities for, MEGA’s Finance function. You’ll partner with internal stakeholders and apply a robust analytical framework to facilitate growth through relevant, timely financial advice and reporting, focusing on operational performance, industry dynamics, macroeconomic trends, and the competitor landscape.

Reporting to the Accounting Manager, you’ll make your mark by:

  1. Analysing and advising on MEGA’s Finance function through relevant, actionable summaries and reports, ensuring that policies and procedures are appropriately integrated and aligned with business objectives
  2. Identifying and expanding upon opportunities for performance improvement by reviewing internal controls, market trends, and competitor activity, seeking to understand barriers to success and arrive at their solution
  3. Administering and expanding upon the reporting, accessibility, and understanding of financial data for internal stakeholders
  4. Partnering with business units and management to monitor, manage, and report on cost allocation and drive the budgeting process
  5. Aiding in the development of pricing strategies based on projected demand, competition, costs, and other factors
  6. Contributing to ad hoc financial projects as required as part of the overall finance function 

About You

You’re a self-directed ‘doer’ with thorough attention to detail and a broad financial skillset. With your excellent business acumen, you can understand business objectives and work effectively with other leaders to achieve them. You actively demonstrate MEGA’s values by taking ownership of your work and pursuing life-long learning.

You also have:

  1. Proven ability in financial management, reporting, and control at a high level, ideally with experience at major multinational or listed businesses
  2. A successful track record working in project-driven corporate environments, preferably in the IT space
  3. A commitment to continuous organisational improvement with the ability to act as an effective change agent, building and sustaining relationships in order to achieve positive results
  4. The ability to understand, interpret, and clearly communicate regulatory requirements as they relate to the finance function.
  5. A robust awareness of, and sensitivity to, changing methodology and theory with regard to financial management and control
  6. A strong financial accounting and reporting background, ideally including proficiency with ERP systems such as NetSuite


You’ll need to have at least a Bachelor's Degree in Accounting or a related discipline, as well as Qualified Chartered Accountant status with CAANZ or a similar industry organisation.

Along with a flexible working policy, a deliberate culture of internal development, and top-of-the-line tools, you will enjoy a competitive remuneration package.

This is a stable role within a secure but dynamic industry, providing the opportunity to work with passionate people at the forefront of their field.

With attentive leadership and an emphasis on innovation, you’ll grow alongside MEGA as we continue to cement our industry-leading position.
