Your challenge


At Spriggy, we’re building the future of money for families and young Australians. Spriggy launched in late 2016 and has had over 500,000 members join, with hundreds of new parents and kids joining Spriggy every day.

We’re looking for an exceptional Finance Manager to take over the responsibility of ensuring the integrity of our financial systems and processes as Spriggy grows from Australia’s most loved pocket money app, to a platform of products. You will be responsible for all aspects of our internal accounting function across multiple legal entities. 


We expect that you will have a background in finance, ideally working for an AFSL regulated business. Naturally, you will be a whizz with numbers, spreadsheets and querying databases.  Being highly detailed and process-driven you will have no problem taking ad hoc tasks and building them into a set of well-documented, controlled processes. You won’t be put off by the speed of change and rapid growth and will have a genuine passion for helping families be better with money.  

 

About Spriggy


Spriggy helps Aussie families teach their kids about money and makes it possible to manage it all from your pocket. We provide parents with a safe and simple way to pay their kids pocket money, set chores, manage savings, monitor spending, pay for school lunches and invest for their kids' future. 

 

Spriggy launched in late 2016 and has had over 500,000 members join and a 4.8 star rating average from over 20,000 reviews. We recently closed our Series B round of $35m and are backed by high-calibre Australian investors, including Mike and Annie Cannon-Brookes' Grok Ventures and NAB ventures.


We’re a rapidly growing team, with people from diverse backgrounds that include engineering, design, physics, genetics, medicine, sports, ex-founders and mathematics. We’re all passionate problem solvers and we truly care about how people learn to use money.
