Financial Controller

Simacan is changing the world of Logistics & Supply Chain and growing fast. And so is the Finance team. We are therefore looking for an enthusiastic and driven Financial Controller with a background in a B2B environment. Do you have around 5 years of work experience and are you ready for the next step in your career? Is your passion for financial reporting and setting up administrative processes in addition to your regular duties? Then read on!

The Role 
As Financial Controller you are responsible for the financial administration, you ensure an optimal design of the administration and associated processes, you provide liquidity forecasts and cash management and you prepare the financial reports/analyses, budgets and annual accounts. You are also the contact person for external parties such as the accountant, banks and subsidy providers, tax authorities, clients and suppliers. Simacan is working on further professionalization, including efficiency improvements in finance.
What else is involved?
Simacan as a company is in the scale-up life phase and we are also taking our first steps outside the Dutch borders. The rapid growth that comes with a scale-up and the first steps outside the Dutch borders, asks a lot of the Finance team and offers you opportunities for broad development. You will therefore be given a lot of freedom. We expect you to use this freedom to grow with the organization. You will implement efficiency measures and thereby lift the financial administration to a higher level. This will demand a lot from you, but fortunately you will be well coached in this process. Ultimately, your development path is not set in stone; if the analysis side suits you better, you can grow into Business Analyst. If your ambition is to be ultimately responsible for the financial administration, you can also grow into Finance Manager.

We are the most innovative scale-up in supply chain software and we have a lot of impact on making the industry more sustainable. We don't want to be the biggest but the best. Simacan is growing organization with over 75 employees and part of the top 250 fastest growing companies of The Netherlands. Millions of people experience the benefits of our platform every day. Our platform integrates real-time traffic information into the primary business processes of our clients. This is how we help companies such as Albert Heijn, Jumbo and PostNL to optimize their logistics processes.
