    Financial Accountant | VC backed SaaS Start - Up | Central London



    Harmonic Finance are proud to be recruiting on an exclusive basis for one of Europe's fastest-growing property technology companies following a period of hyper growth in both headcount and revenue. Their SaaS product has revolutionized the ability of landlords (residential and commercial) to manage their property portfolios, and the services they provide within them - helping them to provide better service and to increase their efficiencies and margin. Unsurprisingly this has resulted in them gaining massive blue chip and privately-owned customers at a rapid pace, resulting in company headcount growing from 40 to over 150 in 18 months!

    The business has been recognized with four major technology industry awards over the past 12 months and the exec team are regularly featured for their thought leadership on both technology and company culture.





    The Role

    As a result of the business rapidly growing, with plans to double in size every eighteen months an opportunity has arisen for a recently qualified individual to join them as a financial accountant. The desired candidate will have background in SaaS or marketplace businesses as well as experience in a fast growth business from Series A onwards. The financial accountant will be an asset within the finance team and will be reporting directly to the group financial controller. The role is broad in scope (although emphasizing financial accounting, you can support FP&A for instance) and you will help to manage all day-to-day finance and reporting activities for the UK and international entities (DE and the US).



    The role is an excellent stepping stone to become a Financial Controller within a Series A or Series B SaaS / Tech scale-up.

    * Preparation of monthly bank reconciliations for all entities in the group, including commentary and populating investor templates.
    * Supporting the transactional finance in the UK, Germany, and the USA.
    * Contributing to commercial FP&A (20% of the role).
    * Managing the day-to-day queries from investors and reporting any challenges
    * Day to day management for all taxation matters including R&D tax credits, VAT, Corporation tax and EMI option management.
    * Assisting with tax/ VAT returns.



    Requirements

    * It is essential that the candidate is a full qualified accountant with at least 1 year post qualified experience in a startup or scale up.
    * Intermediate excel/googlesheet skills.
    * Experience in automating processes, data reconciliation and statutory accounts preparation
    * Understanding of UK GAAP
    * Previous experience working for a business which handles high volume of data
