News Flash: on the surface, how could something like ‘governance’ or ‘compliance’ in an industry such as the one ACL plays in just can’t be all that sexy, right? The industry seems irrelevant to your daily life — you wouldn’t touch them as a consumer — so why work here? It’ll take a bit to explain, but trust us, it’s worth it. Here are a few good reasons…
Young At Heart
We are a 30-year-old company that moves like a startup. It’s the best of both worlds. We have huge customers (90% of the Fortune 500), impressive revenues, and are not worrying about our next funding round. At the same time we’re creating new SaaS products with the latest and greatest technologies, inventing new things, and doing so rapidly.
We are helping to change the world for the better
Our Customer Success team is lucky enough to work with some of the largest brands in the world. And we are helping them to make our world a safer, happier and more ethical place. Our software has helped a federal agency track down missing children, help companies avoid vendors that use child labour, and even help banks find patterns that suggest terrorists, drug dealers or other criminals. Talk about having an impact!
We have an awesome team
Our Customer Success team is made up of pros with a wide variety of skills - from consultants with in-depth industry experience, to Customer Success Managers that make it their mission to ensure our clients are successful. The common thread with our entire team is a desire and passion to do whatever it takes to ensure our clients are the most sought-after within their own organizations. This includes painting a vision of how our data-driven software can give them insights into their business as it relates to GRC.
Not your Typical Career
Many candidates in the accounting, audit or GRC industry have never imagined working for a tech company. From project and client management, to sales and software design, we have so many unique opportunities that will lead to a challenging and rewarding career path. Layer on things like fun team events, community involvement and volunteering and driving the company Torino (seriously), how can you not enjoy it?
We are Damn Proud of our Work
We have been awarded more GRC 20/20 Innovation awards than any other vendor. We are recognized by industry analysts such as Gartner and Forrester. We have been awarded top employer awards and team awards in Canada. Our trophy case is getting crowded thanks to the awesome team at ACL.
But enough about us. We take recruiting seriously at ACL. Our team is awesome and we are picky about adding more awesome people. Our ideal new team member will be:
Intense about Customers
You exceed all expectations with your clients, from deadlines to deliverables. You can paint a vision and deliver a beautiful customer experience. You are proactive in your interactions and constantly add value, making them the most sought-after individual in their own organization. You play a key role in ensuring that the customer never, ever wants to leave ACL.
A Disruptor and Innovator
You are not afraid to look at things differently and implement better ways to do them. You have an innate desire to move the needle when it comes to the performance of your team and the company.
You play nice in the sandbox with others. You know you don’t have all the answers or that there may be someone else that is better than you to help solve the problems. And you are not afraid to collaborate with them and ask for help to get the job done. People want to work with you – they are the first person they think of when assembling a team. Clients demand you on their projects.
A Problem Solver
By asking the right questions, you are able to understand what problems your clients are trying to solve, and then go solve them. Need we say more?
- Strong passion to work in the audit, compliance, internal controls and/or risk management field. You don’t need to have had experience in these areas, we are fully prepared to teach you that stuff
- Experience in a consulting or client facing role
- Amazing communication skills – you are not afraid to speak with our clients to understand their needs, provide solutions, facilitate workshops or deliver effective presentations or training sessions
- An ability to effectively manage your time and multi-task in a fast-paced environment
- Undergraduate degree or diploma in a relevant area (e.g. Accounting, Business, Finance, Engineering, or MIS)
- You will be expected, with ACL’s support, to work towards relevant professional accreditations such as CIA, CA, CGA, CMA, CPA, CFE, CISA
- Previous experience with GRC and/or data analytics software is a plus
Not sure if you’re a perfect match? Well, if you kick an exceptional amount of butt in project and client management, are a quick learner and not afraid to try something new, get in touch. We might be able to work something out.
