Senior Accountant Job Posting



Are you looking for a meaningful and rewarding career with all the perks and support that are lacking in so many run-of-the-mill jobs?  Keep reading, you’ve just found that opportunity.

Niscon is a fast-growing engineering company based in Burlington, Ontario, primarily engaged in developing, manufacturing, and installing Motion Control Systems in Live Entertainment Facilities worldwide.  We build the equipment and provide the software to make circus performers fly, scenery magically appear, concert stages move, and architecture that immerses the viewer in an unforgettable experience.  Our mission is to ensure that producers, productions, and audiences everywhere enjoy uninterrupted performances day or night, experience after experience.

The work we do is challenging and deadline based, but it is rewarding and satisfying when you get to see the curtain rise or hear the roar of a crowd.  Yet, that is not all there is to life and that is why we offer competitive salaries and benefits, retirement savings plans with company contributions, personal wellbeing support with paid sick days, vacation, and personal time off, and a flexible work environment.

We are a team, but we feel more like a family.  We pull together, we have each other’s backs, we challenge one another, we enjoy each other’s company, and support one another when needed.  We sail, run, cycle, scuba dive, play hockey, camp, travel, canoe, kayak, fish, craft, build, weld, invent, restore, and ride bikes.  We are progressive, inclusive, creative, mothers, fathers, fosters, fur-parents, and grandparents.

If you think you are up for the challenge and want to join our diverse group of engineers, software developers, technicians, project managers, and administrators we want to hear from you.
