ANZ Junior Accountant

 Reports To:  Head of Finance ANZ

Location: Sydney, Australia

Employment Type:  Full Time

About the Company

Kegstar provides a comprehensive solution designed to eliminate the inefficient and costly method in which kegs have traditionally been owned, tracked and retrieved by breweries. As partners with its brewery clients, Kegstar has mastered the keg management process, allowing its brewing partners to focus on their craft—brewing beer.  Launched in Australia in 2012 and expanded in the UK in 2016, the business has grown into a multinational organization.  Kegstar is now family to MicroStar Logistics (“MicroStar” or “M*”) headquartered in North America.  Internationally we manage a pool of nearly 6 million kegs and the corresponding logistical needs for craft brewery customers.

MicroStar Logistics (“MicroStar” or “M*”) was founded over two decades ago with one simple idea: How can we help the world’s best brewers do what they do best? Over that time, and by staying focused on brewer’s needs, MicroStar has become the leading keg solutions provider in the industry. The values that sparked MicroStar’s growth are still at the heart of their business: A “Customer First!” approach and a strong commitment to people, quality, innovation and sustainability. This has made MicroStar a trusted partner for some of the world’s best brewers for over twenty years, including ~half of today’s top-50 brewers.  In addition, through MicroStar’s recent acquisition of Kegstar, a leading keg solutions provider in markets including the UK, Europe and Australia, MicroStar is positioned for the next 20 years of growth.
