Then we’d love to hear from you!

  • Collect missing receipts and documents from employees and provide them first-level support in our internal helpdesk
  • Actively liaise with our external accountant and tax advisor during month-end and annual closing, collect documents, and prepare input files

  • Drive excellence in departmental and project cost reporting with thorough quality checks in our accounting and staying on top of the reporting process
  • Maintain our policy framework and keep it up-to-date
  • Be actively involved in topics such as cost controlling, budgeting, financial planning, and analysis and support our Head of Finance with ad-hoc reporting tasks

Klang is an independent game development studio based in Berlin. It was founded by three Icelanders in the spring of 2013. In July 2015, Klang launched its first project, ReRunners: Race for the World, for iOS and Android devices, which was extremely well-received by both the gaming press and the gaming community. Now, Klang is working on its next project, Seed, a simulation MMO utilizing SpatialOS technology.
