Are you looking for a future-proof career path within Finance? In this high-impact financial reporting role you will get to help us figure out how to turn large amounts of data into useful dashboards that will improve the way we make our business decisions. And all of this for a great purpose - you will be directly contributing to the good of the internet!

Financial Reporting Specialist (Senior Financial Administrator)

Location: From our office in Amsterdam and from home

We are looking for an experienced and business-savvy finance professional to take full responsibility for the internal reporting process. You will play a pivotal role in driving change and efficiency in our organisation.

This function goes beyond standard monthly management reporting. Over the past two years, we have implemented business intelligence within our organisation using the BI tool Tableau.

In this role you will:

  • Improve current reporting, look at additional reporting possibilities and needs, and develop new reports that enable our executives to make sharper, data-driven decisions;

  • Take operational financial reporting activities within strategic, continuous improvement projects beyond the regular cycle;

  • Ensure smooth month (and year) closings in close collaboration with the Finance team (understanding reporting possibilities and driving improvement);

  • Initially focus on internal reporting, with the possible external reporting in the future;

  • Drive process optimisation through simplification, standardisation and automation;

  • Work with different stakeholders across multiple departments (high visibility and impact within the organisation).

Ideal profile:

  • Around 5+ years experience in financial administration and reporting; 

  • Solid understanding of accounting, monthly closing and other functional finance areas;

  • Business acumen;

  • A self-starter with a taste for driving change and improvement;

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Finance, Accounting or Business Administration;

  • Experience with Excel is a must (AFAS & Tableau are a big plus);

  • Fluent in English;

  • Excellent communication skills, and ability to confidently interact across different levels of the organisation;

  • Strong analytical skills;

  • Attention to detail.

What can we offer you?

  • A modern, flexible and informal work environment with a true commitment to a healthy work/life balance;

  • A beautiful office right at the heart of Amsterdam, with lots of space and an incredible view;

  • A strong compensation package.Excellent secondary benefits, including a non-contributory pension scheme, health insurance coverage for you and your family, annual technology budget for your internet connectivity and an annual budget for health and transportation.

  • 30 vacation days plus 3 collective days;

  • We will also support your growth and development with a generous annual training allowance.
