Accountant

Job description

Are you an Accountant genius and looking for a steep learning curve? Great, because Felyx is expanding! The coming years we are facing hyper-growth in The Netherlands and the rest of Europe. Therefore, we are looking for an ambitious Financial Accountant to be a key member of the finance team and the right hand of the Finance Manager.

We are a young and driven scale-up, that is making swift door-to-door transportation the new status quo with our innovative and sustainable tech platform. We are working together as an ambitious team of entrepreneurs, operators and engineers, and looking to grow as we scale the business throughout Europe. Do you share our DNA: self-starting, open, driven and have values based on integrity? Great! Join our ride!

Here’s the challenge

Felyx is growing rapidly and we need you to be a key member of our finance team to assist the finance manager with taking our systems and reporting to the next level. Your primary responsibility will be owning the financial administration and making sure our records are clean and our financial data is accurate and up to date. You will report to and work closely with the finance manager. You are comfortable making suggestions, challenging the finance manager and using your expert accounting knowledge to improve systems and procedures. You are not afraid of rolling your sleeves up and getting stuck in. As a scale up we move fast so there are always new challenges. This is an excellent opportunity to learn and grow as a financial professional in an exciting, dynamic, growing company. Are you ready for the challenge?


What you’ll be doing

  • Supporting the finance manager
  • Month end reconciliation (bank, leger accounts, suspense accounts)
  • Preparation of first draft month end figures for review by finance manager
  • Responsibility for quarterly VAT returns (Netherlands, Belgium, Germany)
  • Assisting with creating and implementing standard accounting procedures across the group
  • Coaching junior team members with your excellent accounting knowledge
  • Answering daily questions asked of the finance team, both from inside and outside the company.


But, not important to forget, is that we encourage you to grow with the company and within your role (possibility to become junior finance manager) as we are continually growing in our journey towards ‘world domination’. Just kidding, market leader in Europe will do (for now).

Requirements

We truly get excited if you

  • Have an entrepreneurial mindset (creative problem solver, dedicated, motivated, self-starter)

  • Speaking Dutch and English, this is a requirement

  • Are a true bookkeeping genius, as stated above, and dream of excel

  • Are accustomed to delivering high quality and value pragmatism

  • Have experience (3-5 years) in a similar financial role

  • Know how to multitask, prioritize and build strong working relationships

  • See yourself as a flexible person in terms of getting the job done while becoming the leading global platform

  • Have excellent communication skills in both Dutch and English

Bonus points if you

  • Are getting exciting about operating an urban mobility service

  • Have experience in a startup environment

  • Have a degree in Accountancy/Business Economics (hbo/wo)

  • Have knowledge/experience with accounting software

Joining our ride is becoming part of the leading global platform in urban mobility. Having a direct impact on the business + getting on the job guidance and mentorship, however, with a high degree of independence, will give you the opportunity to develop yourself rapidly. Maybe also nice to know: we have a very strong team and great location on the Pilotenstraat!


At felyx we believe that the best workplace is one that represents the world we live in today. This means  we believe that diversity in the broadest sense of the word connects us and drives us forward as a company.

We believe that diversity goes hand in hand with different perspectives. It is these different perspectives that can help us become better and more innovative in finding solutions for our customers.

And because we believe this can be achieved, we are looking for colleagues who are intrinsically motivated and bring the right experience. Gender, age, sexual orientation or origin will never be a factor and will never become one.
