Posted on Friday, January 20, 2023

Join our small, fiery team on our mission to usher in the Bitcoin golden age. Shakepay is one of the fastest growing startups in Canada. We've grown 10x in the last year. 2% of Canadians use Shakepay. We're building something really special. We need true believers to join our team. We're looking for ambitious professionals with a thirst for knowledge that are interested in working with the most exciting financial innovation ever created: Bitcoin. Bitcoin is important because it enables wealth to be stored with a person without need for a third party. Its fundamental use-case as a store of value with a predictable monetary policy is having profound implications on freeing people into financial sovereignty.

Corporate Finance Manager

Shakepay has an amazing, one-of-a-kind community of now over 1,000,000 shakers (aka “customers”) who are as passionate about our brand as they are about bitcoin.

Are those actually opposites? You tell us.

In any event, we’re looking for someone who’s brain sounds like level 1-2 in the original Super Mario Bros. Y’know… “data data data.” As a Corporate Finance Manager you’ll be a sound partner for department heads in all financial planning and analysis, and corporate finance related matters. We’ll look to you to build complex financial models to support decision making, maintain relationships with external partners, and perform ad-hoc analysis when needed. Data data data.
