Berlin - Finance

As one of the most successful FinTech companies in Europe, Taxfix is an exciting place to work. We’re revolutionizing filing taxes – and saving people money, time and stress by putting a personalized digital tax consultant in the palm of their hands. 

In just 2 years, Taxfix has raised €42 million from some of the best investors in the world.  We achieved this by putting our customers at the core of what we do and helping them save millions of euros every week. 

 

Our Mission:

Our mission is to help people get their maximum tax refunds in a convenient, transparent and timely manner, hassle-free. Our user-friendly Taxfix App enables people to file within 25 minutes, without any prior tax knowledge or complicated forms. 

Our talented team creates products that help people improve and simplify their lives. Our diverse group of over 80 people come from over 20 nations, with a shared a passion for product development and creating an outstanding user experience. Join a team of smart, ambitious, driven people who value open communication and processes. 

 

Role:

Your job is to build an internationally scalable accounting infrastructure. We are currently migrating our accounting in-house, implementing an ERP system that you constantly refine and optimise. You will always have an eye out for automating recurring tasks with the help of our project managers, data engineers and external consultants. Together with a world class team of accountants you take pride in delivering timely, accessible and accurate financial reports for management and investors. 

You proactively communicate your own ideas and make your voice heard when it comes to shaping internal processes and systems. Under increasing workload, your first thought is automation, not hiring. You love getting lost in the details, but are no micromanager, because you trust your team. You are a mentor to your accountants and help them become the best version of themselves every day.

 

Requirements: 

You have a strong theoretical and practical background in accounting in an international context. You have not just operated accounting software but have also been closely involved in implementing and optimising it. 

Ideally you’ll have worked in a large start up / scale up environment for at least 3 years, independently driving international growth from a financial perspective. You thrive in international and diverse teams, act on strong leadership principles and have strong communication skills. You have detailed knowledge of more than two VAT regimes (one preferrably outside the EU) and have a full grasp of local GAAP in at least one continental European country as well as IFRS. You’re fluent in English and - ideally - speak conversational German.

 

What You Gain:

  • Get to make an impact on thousands of people’s lives every day 
  • Be paid a competitive salary with stock options 
  • Benefit from remote work opportunities and flexible working hours 
  • Have the option to take German language courses 
  • Be supported to grow and take leadership from day one 
  • Work with the best and learn from other competent and brilliant people
