Part-time Graduate/Assistant Accountant

Melbourne, Australia

We're looking for a Part-time Graduate/Assistant Accountant to join the Fastmail team in our Melbourne office. Come work on the original social media platform—email—at a place that strives to put the customer's needs first.

About the Job

Fastmail is growing! Our Finance and Administration team, assisted by a full-time Data Scientist, is looking to add a third part-time member. You'll help us streamline our monthly accounting operations, so we can improve and build out new forecasting, cash flow projections, and cross border tracking.

The key responsibilities of this role include:

Working at Fastmail

This job is based in Melbourne CBD. We have a strong in-person culture and are looking for someone who will be on-site and part of that culture.

We also have an office in Philadelphia, USA, and we're in close communication with them. Because of the time difference, occasionally you might need to be available outside of your usual schedule for a team meeting.

We value people who are enthusiastic to learn and improve their skills—and we give you a professional development budget to do so, and we'll cover your annual certification costs.

You can read about our values, and our blog contains interviews with some of the people who will become your colleagues at Fastmail.

Like everyone on our team, you'll get good benefits (including 4 weeks paid parental leave), equipment, books, and whatever else you need to do your job comfortably.

We see this as a part-time role where good communication is essential. All staff spend a portion of their week in the office and you'll need to spend some of your work time physically present in our Melbourne office too when lockdown restrictions allow. There's flexibility in that though — we are partners, parents, and carers ourselves. Talk to us if you're unsure.

We welcome all applicants regardless of race, colour, religion, age, pregnancy, gender identity or expression, disability, or sexual orientation.

The thing we can't help with is visas or sponsorship. You must already have the right to work in Australia.

Sounds great, what’s next?

Email us at to introduce yourself and tell us why you would be a good fit for the job! As part of your application please also include a PDF of your resume. We'd also love to hear what you’re interested in, what makes the job interesting, and anything else you want to tell us up front.

Job Type: Part-time, 3 days/week.
