Team Lead Accounting, this is your challenge

Your responsibilities

  • 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.

 

 

We’re a fit if you bring these qualities with you: 

  • 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’s in it for you?:

  • Get to make an impact on thousands of people’s lives every day 
  • Be supported to grow and take leadership from day one 
  • Work in a beautiful, inspiring office near Alexanderplatz
