Finance Manager / Controller // CANDIS

February 14, 2019

Your position will be cross functional reporting involved in all processes and departments of the company.

You will own…:

..all finance processes

  • financial reporting
  • detect, define, explain and improve processes
  • built (financial) controlling processes and identify cost reduction potential
  • ensure that all stakeholders have the financial data they need

…growth and opportunities

  • help departments identify the right KPIs to track progress
  • work closely with the BI team to set up reportings
  • identify and fix loopholes in processes and unlock opportunities for growth
  • coordinate adhoc report requests between different stakeholders and the BI team


You are an analytical and highly organized person. You combine a love of detail, whilst never losing sight of the bigger picture, with outstanding communication skills. After all – processes change and empathy is key if you want to successfully work together with all stakeholders. You realize why understanding our processes and reaching our objectives is essential. With your support all departments define their KPIs and learn what assumptions to make based on the data the BI team provides.

On a personal level, you are a hungry professional, with roughly 2 years experience in operations management, business development or business intelligence. You are hands on, active and don’t back down from a challenge. You have solid experience in Excel, SQL is and advantage (but not a must have) and in the best case you have experience in using salesforce or a comparable CRM tool as an admin. Always following your objective, you are able to filter any stream of information to reduce it to the most important point. A little chaos and frequent switching between tasks does not scare you, but challenges you to continuously improve yourself.


We’re offering you the unique opportunity to take on mission-critical responsibility in a post-Series A FinTech startup. We’re on our mission to pave the way for automated financial and accounting processes in SMEs and have just raised our Series A funding round with a world-renowned Silicon Valley VC. We currently develop two products (CANDIS Smartbooks&CANDIS Workflows) for a diverse range of audiences (SMEs & tax advisors/ accountants) and are now looking for someone to join our operations team.

You will work within a highly experienced team (Rocket Internet, Uber, DriveNow, Teufel, DeinHandy…) from diverse backgrounds (we’re still working on Antarctica but aside of that, people from all continents work at CANDIS!). Regular, personal feedback is a standard and fast personal and professional growth is expected of you. Currently we’re just under 80 people across 2 offices (Berlin & Bamberg) with a clear upwards trend. We’re optimistic technologists, eager learners, meticulous technicians, and committed to serving our customers. Take your chance to gain knowledge in one of the world fastest growing industries! We’re a passionate team that supports each other and succeeds together. Oh right, flextime and home office is the icing on the cake. ;)
