We constantly work towards creating a profitable, growth company that is a great place to work. To achieve this, we have brought together an ambitious team, with experience in the switchgear industry and with scaling companies.

We encourage our employees to take ownership, embrace collaboration and constantly challenge the status quo.

  • closely collaborate with our international external tax offices (we have accounting in-house) regarding closing and audit preparation
  • be the sparring partner for implementing the ERP accounting solution in the next 6 months
  • act as an internal POC for all financial questions as well as contribute to cross functional projects
  • analyze monthly financial statements (balance sheet, income statement, and statement of cash flows) and effectively convey analysis to colleagues on demand
  • ensure operational compliance with policies, procedures and regulations for all entities

What you need to bring in:

  • Demonstrated experience in successfully building up the accounting function, ideally in a growth start-up environment - experience in leading the function is a plus
  • 5+ years of experience in financial accounting, audit/assurance, management consulting or similar
  • Strong understanding of German HGB accounting as well as IFRS
  • Experience with accounting and accounting related tools, Datev, Sage, Exact, QuickBooks or similar
  • Experience in reporting and planning tools, like Adaptive, Anaplan, Lucanet or similar
  • Experience with finance related workflows and cross functional process definition in an ERP System is a plus
  • The ability to thrive in a dynamic professional environment
  • A structured, results-oriented, and self-driven way of approaching tasks
  • Fluency in English and very good German language (B2 plus)

What do we bring into our relationship?

  • A sustainable, down-to-earth, and passionate company
  • Family-friendly work environment
  • Free snacks, drinks and fruit basket
  • Exciting and regular team events, including a Christmas party, summer celebrations with a budget for departmental events
  • You will be part of an innovative group of high-performance and experienced people from diverse backgrounds
  • We are committed to your growth and will challenge you directly to become the best professional version of yourself
  • We believe in a culture of trusted ownership, caring meritocracy, and constructive feedback where we elevate each other and challenge the status quo
