Role Overview
We are looking for a Finance Manager who has found his/her calling in the practical development and quality assurance of top financial systems for high-growth companies. The person we seek for this role does not only love numbers, but also knows how to ensure their quality, and collect and present them to serve as a foundation for fact-based decision-making in a business. Attention to detail is not stress, but rather pure enjoyment to you; and you believe that finance as a discipline is not a means to an end, but rather the top function for strategic direction and organisational efficiency.

• You enjoy brainstorming and can deploy out-of-the-box thinking to solve problems, even outside of Finance
• Throughout your minimum 5 years of work experience, you have developed a strong entrepreneurial spirit and “can-do” attitude which you consistently deploy in your work and interactions

Your responsibilities
• Take responsibility for the execution the day-to-day financial operations within the company, such as payroll, supplier payments, invoicing, and other transactions
• Establish and maintain financial policies and procedures for the company, collaborating with colleagues across the organization to enforce them meaningfully
• Contract and manage outside service providers for bookkeeping, tax preparation, auditing, banking, investments, and other financial needs as necessary
• Track, plan and forecast the company’s cashflow situation, including the determination of core metrics for regular investor reporting
