Job Description

Account Manager (SOFTRAX, A TELUS Company)

The world of Finance is going through tectonic shifts. Now, more than ever, companies are transitioning pricing and billing models to focus on recurring revenue and subscription billing. New regulations such as ASC 606 / IFRS 15 have created complexity in the recognition of revenue. No ERP platform vendor has been able to keep up. Both events carry significant complications and provide substantial compelling events to re-evaluate both systems and processes.

SOFTRAX, a TELUS company, is a fast-paced, dynamic, software company disrupting the Revenue Management Software market. Our software enables companies across many verticals to automate complex, back-office processes related to the order-to-cash, order-to-revenue recognition and billing processes. These include complex milestones, subscription and transactional billing, contract renewal management and revenue recognition under the ASC 606 and IFRS 15 guidance.

We pioneered the space of complex revenue accounting in the mid-90s. Our acquisition by TELUS into the TELUS Agriculture & Consumer Goods division in 2021 came with new investment leading to the next generation revenue management system platform we sell today.

We are positioned at the center of this activity and in an ideal position to maintain a high rate of growth. To maximize its growth potential, we are seeking high-energy individuals to assist in all areas of the business.
