Bookkeeper

Job description

Are you a true bookkeeping 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 bookkeeper to be the right hand of the Finance Manager.

Felyx

As urbanization is rising and the air quality is deteriorating, we feel the need to make our cities greener and healthier by offering a sustainable mobility solution. Besides, we offer a new and fun way around town! At felyx, everybody within their own expertise is contributing to a cleaner city by making this swift door-to-door transportation the new status quo. We are working together as an ambitious team of entrepreneurs, operators, marketers, engineers, and looking to grow as we scale the business throughout Europe. Felyx is one of the few micro-mobility players in the world that is EBITDA positive on a group level. We are a young company with more than a hundred employees, working in the operations and at the head office in Amsterdam. You can describe us as passionate, playful, hands-on and entrepreneurial. Do you share our DNA? Great! Join our ride!


Here is the challenge

As bookkeeper you’ll have the unique opportunity to develop the Financial Control Framework of felyx. You are responsible for the overall financial administration of multiple entities in an international environment, optimizing the working capital of felyx and ensuring that management has the right insights to steer the organization.


What you’ll be doing

You will be the go-to person for all financial related questions and maintaining the financial administration of the felyx entities (invoice handling, managing debtors/creditors, preparing payments). You will be responsible for preparing financial management reports and assuring that our actuals are delivered on time. In short:

  • Making sure our invoices are recorded and paid out on time
  • Ensuring that we are in control of our VAT filings
  • Preparing cash flow forecasts; financial management reports and monthly actuals
  • Helping the founding team in making ad-hoc financial decisions

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

What's in it for me?

An ambitious team of entrepreneurial colleagues with a shared passion for our mission. You will work in a transparent, fast-growing and inspirational environment in which you are able to take the lead over your own career and will get challenged on a daily basis! And next to that:

  • 29 paid days off on a full-time basis: 28 on the roll and a day off on your birthday!
  • You will get free felyx minutes.
  • We want to invest in your future: a good pension plan is therefore in place (1/3 employee, 2/3 employer).
  • We offer 6 weeks of paternity leave with 100% salary for all (upcoming) dads.
  • We take your development seriously and encourage you to grow with the company and within your role.
  • Once we are able to go back to the office (hopefully soon!), we offer a tasty and healthy lunch.

Last but not least: fun, freedom and trust! We're not scared to work our butts off, but this is only possible once we all experience joy in the work that we do every day.

We are very proud of the fact that we have been named by LinkedIn as a top start-up to work at for the second time in a row, together with many other prestigious awards we’ve received since our start in 2017. We are operational in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Groningen, Haarlem, Eindhoven, Den Bosch and Brussels and will be launching many more (European) cities in 2021. We have a strong focus on scaling up internationally.

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.
