Topline Business Controller


VanMoof is a fast-moving bike company set for major growth – but we can only grow with a strong foundation of reporting and budget control. That’s why we’re looking for a Topline Business Controller to help us build and support our business control efforts. 

As Topline Business Controller, you’ll report directly to the Business Control Manager and collaborate with the Financial Control and the Corporate Finance & Analytics teams. You'll partner with leaders on both the financial and commercial sides of the business to drive financial excellence through: best-in-class budgeting, a critical review of actual performance, and continuous improvement. You’ll identify any discrepancies and prepare action plans with Business Owners so we can improve with every month. You will be a go-to expert for sales and marketing activities.

VanMoof continues to grow, as will your responsibilities. Our ideal candidate is experienced, and eager to learn and improve within their role. You should have a collaborative, flexible, and persevering mindset, and excellent communication skills.

What you’ll do:

  • You'll provide financial support to our commercial marketing processes, such as cost monitoring for marketing activities, ROI, and evolution of revenue to plan.

  • You'll assist in preparing the monthly business update from a finance perspective for our external management accounts, adding and improving upon on your insights each month.

  • You'll prepare monthly financial performance reports, discuss performance with the relevant stakeholders, and make the necessary adjustments.

  • You'll perform profitability analyses such as unit economics, customer lifetime value, variance analysis, and gross margin analysis together with the Corporate Finance & Analytics team.

  • You'll participate in our financial planning activities such as the annual forecast, monthly budget, and latest estimate (rolling forecast).

  • You'll assess and improve team budget controls within your area, and report and evaluate our monthly performance.

  • You'll partner with the business by assessing expansion and other growth initiatives through the preparation of business cases for decision making.

  • You'll work closely with the Financial Control and Accounting teams on improving baseline registration of data (including both accounting and non-financial data).

  • You'll contribute to the development and activation of an IPO readiness plan.

  • You'll support our annual closing procedures.

What you'll bring:

  • You have a bachelor’s or master’s degree in Business Administration, Finance, or equivalent.

  • You have at least six years of experience in a Controlling or similar role, with demonstrable successes in Topline (sales and marketing) controlling.

  • You have a thorough understanding of financial processes and IFRS accounting principles (Dutch GAAP and/or US GAAP is a plus).

  • You’re experienced with ERP software – bonus points for Odoo or LucaNet.

  • You have excellent modeling and presentation skills (in Excel and Powerpoint).

  • You have strong interpersonal and communication skills.

  • You want to work in a strong team and improve it with your own unique strengths.

  • You have a good command of the English language, both written and spoken.

  • You have experience working in e-mobility and/or retail.

What you'll get:

  • 26 paid holiday days for you to unwind

  • Pension plan by BrandNewDay

  • Your very own VanMoof bike (lend-lease)

  • Laptop, screens, and software tools

  • Insider experience in a rapidly-growing international company
