Part Time Job

Accounts Assistant

Come and make a real impact in one of New Zealand's rising tech stars, helping over 30,000 farms across the world manage their financial performance and be better, more profitable, and sustainable operations now and for future generations.

We have taken our vision from Aotearoa to the world and now have teams across Australia, the United Kingdom and North America.

As a company, we pride ourselves on our people-first culture; we provide unique opportunities that are equally challenging and rewarding and an environment where people are celebrated for the impact they make, encouraged to bring their whole selves to work and supported to grow and develop.


One of the biggest causes of stress for farmers comes from not knowing their financial position, not feeling in control, and not feeling supported. Figured provides peace of mind by providing them with clarity and control, and by connecting them to their financial advisors.

Figured is a SaaS platform that works with other cloud accounting softwares, to enable Farmers, Accountants, Bankers and their advisors to work together on a single set of financial data, bringing together production information with financial data to create a clear picture of the farms financial position, variance to budget and forecast position.

This is an opportunity to be part of a business which is making a significant difference in the lives of farmers and their financial advisors everywhere in the world. Perhaps you tried your hand at being an accountant but prefer to flex your financial muscles in a different way, or grew up on a farm and would love to give back to the industry while experiencing life in a high growth tech company.
