Why you’ll love Softchoice:


At Softchoice, our purpose is to unleash the potential of people and technology. 


Our company was built around the idea that there is no success without team success. We foster a culture of inclusion and fairness, where diverse interests, experiences, and backgrounds are celebrated. We strive to empower and unleash the potential of everyone, to ensure that every employee has a path to success. We are in it together to make life better for each other, our customers, our partners, and our communities.

The impact you will have:


There are two kinds of financial analysts in this world – those who are comfortable operating in the unknown, who can spot patterns in the chaos and create business-defining strategies with authority, cleverness and speed. And then there are those who are more suited to the predictable, day-in, day-out world of budgeting and back-office number crunching.

  • Provide support for M&A activity as required. 

  • Provide support for high impact projects based on a thorough understanding of the company’s financial position and business model. Examples of such projects could include capital structure analyses and build vs. buy decisions.


What you'll bring to the table:


You are a well-rounded and ambitious finance professional, with excellent financial modeling and cross-functional capabilities. You come with a deep understanding of FP&A, M&A, investment banking, and/or management consulting, gained from in dynamic, large-scale industries with a focus on technology and customer experiences. You are looking for a new and unique challenge in a creative environment, where you will be able to grow your career and your impact. You thrive in teams, excel in fast-paced environments and seek to join a high-caliber, high-performance team that puts its people first, always.
