Head of Accounting

Transfer Galaxy is a fast-growing fintech startup helping people in Europe send money to support their loved ones in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. We’re a diverse bunch of people from different countries and cultures with all the excitement and challenges that come with it. As a Transfer Galaxy employee, you can be yourself, do the work you love, learn, and grow, and really impact other people’s lives. 

We’re looking for a Head of accounting to lead our accounting processes as we are growing. We are a Swedish company, but also have employees in Germany and Pakistan. Furthermore, we have a subsidiary without employees in Norway and shortly another one in the U.K.. At the moment most of the bookkeeping is outsourced to accounting firms, but we do certain elements of the accounting in-house. It’s not out of question that we will bring all accounting for our Swedish entity in-house going forward, in which case you will be responsible for leading this work. You will be the third employee of a growing finance team and report to the CFO.

As we’re a fast-growing company your tasks and assignments may shift over time and with short notice. At the current time we foresee that you will:

  • Have end-to-end responsibility for accounting processes, including such things as monthly reconciliation, creation of financial reports and consolidating accounts
  • Support in the budgeting processes and financial planning, including treasury management
  • Automate and streamline internal processes, drive implementation of new systems, establish appropriate accounting methods, policies and principles
  • Be the responsible contact person towards external auditors and accounting firms

What we’re looking for 

  • A degree in finance/accounting/business with >5 years of professional experience of accounting or audit/finance with a strong knowledge of accounting
  • Good knowledge of K3 and IFRS
  • Excellent English and Swedish oral and written communication skills
  • Detail-oriented taking pride in their work
  • Ability to work with a low-ego attitude in a highly collaborative team
  • Excited about working in a multicultural, fast-paced, and dynamic environment

Your place of work will be in our Stockholm office, but the role involves frequent travelling to our headquarters in Örebro.

At Transfer Galaxy, we believe that a diverse and inclusive workspace truly enables us to make money transfers to loved ones easier and faster for everyone. We encourage applications from people of all backgrounds, ethnicities, sexual orientations, religions, and cultures.

More than just an office

At Transfer Galaxy we value the diversity of opinions and perspectives. We believe that it is only when people from different backgrounds come together that new solutions to old problems can be found. 

We are convinced that these solutions will be so much better if we have fun along the way. That's why you will see a lot of smiles both around and outside of the office. Whether it's our weekly football games or dinners together, we make sure to have fun together outside the office!
