As our Accounting Manager, you’ll be responsible for all accounting operations across Europe and the US. You’ll report directly to the Head of Finance, and work closely with the Finance Controllers and the Tax Manager. Your key focus will be to motivate, manage, and coach a team of seven financial accountants, and you’ll be expected to drive quality and efficiency improvement across all areas of accounting. You’ll make sure that our processes are consistent across the internationally expanding company, and you'll work with the Finance Manager based in Asia to make sure our teams are always closely aligned. You’ll investigate efficiency and automation opportunities, and implement improvements accordingly to enhance VanMoof’s internal control framework.

  • You’ll make sure we always comply with local reporting requirements such as tax and accounting standards by monitoring and analyzing accounting data.
  • You’ll support our local audits and other compliance activities.
  • You’ll collaborate with other departments to improve satisfaction within our growing rider community.
  • You’ll develop and document all accounting processes.

What you'll bring:

  • You have experience with (ERP) software (ideally Odoo, Magento, and LucaNet).
  • You have excellent Microsoft Excel skills.
  • You live and breathe operational excellence.
  • You’re eager to learn and grow within your role. 

What you’ll get:
