The position

Are you excited about growing with Hive and passionate about Accounting? If so, this might be the perfect position for you!

Your Mission: As a Junior Accountant for our German entities, you will play a crucial role in scaling our Finance team and ensuring timely accounting closes and invoice processes (AP & AR). You will drive the invoice process using Spendesk or Datev to maintain streamlined and accurate bookkeeping of expenses and payments. You will become the team's expert around invoice processing in Germany.

You will prepare payment runs for multiple entities, actively optimizing our cash flow and working capital by monitoring payment goals, incentives, and addressing any potential challenges coming up along the way.

Of course, you will also:

  • Collaborate with the Finance team during monthly and annual closes, and assist in consolidating financial statements according to German GAAP (HGB).

  • Participate in various automation projects and process improvements, from invoice processing to financial reporting.

  • Work with our auditors to ensure the reliability of our financials.

Your profile

We know - sometimes, you can’t tick every box. We would still love to hear from you if you think you’re a good fit!

  • Education: Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in accounting or finance.

  • Language: You have good communication skills and fluency in English. A bit of German doesn't scare you.

  • Curiosity: You have a high interest in learning how a Finance function works ground up, from receiving, processing and reporting invoices and their financial impacts to various stakeholders. You want to create financial insights to facilitate an effective steering of the company.

  • Task management: You are not afraid to proactively engage with different work streams and team members within our company - balancing requirements of financial compliance, internal teams and overall company goals. A fast-changing environment pushes you to new heights.

  • Experience: You gathered first experiences in AP & AR processes and you have worked with some accounting or ERP systems. Excel or google sheets are part of your daily workstack.

  • Not required, but appreciated: Knowledge around Datev, Lucanet or Spendesk is a plus.
