Head of Finance

Berlin, Germany
JustWatch provides data-driven digital marketing to the global entertainment industry. We own the world’s largest streaming guide for movies, TV shows & sports and utilize the user data to run digital marketing campaigns for Hollywood’s latest blockbusters and great independent movies.

JustWatch has grown from a very lean start-up into a company of 200+ people who are working from our headquarters in Berlin, one of our offices abroad, or remotely. We never raised shiny VC rounds but focused on building a profitable business while keeping our strong growth momentum.

We are looking for a Head of Finance who fits our unique culture of constant learning, delivering results, and creating value. You will report to one of the founders and be responsible for all finance-related functions with a focus on accounting, controlling and reporting.

  • Several years of experience in finance, ideally in a high-paced (startup) environment
  • Strong background in accounting (HGB and IFRS) and automation of financial processes
  • High expectations of yourself and of everyone you are working with
  • Pragmatic decision-making, hands-on attitude, and good project management
  • Analytic, number-driven mindset and attention to detail
  • Intrinsic motivation and a positive attitude to everything you do
  • A clear and precise communication style in English and German

What You Will Be Doing

  • Be responsible for the P&L and BS of JustWatch
  • Lead and expand a highly professional and lean finance department
  • Ensure consistent quality and timeliness of monthly and annual closing processes
  • Streamline and automate processes in accounting, controlling, and reporting
  • Introduce a lean treasury function to manage liquidity, interest, and FX risks
  • Prepare regular financial plans, forecasts, and shareholder reports
  • Manage relationships with tax advisors, auditors, and other service providers
  • Support the management team with the strategic development of the group

What We Promise

  • You will become part of a passionate, professional, and fun team with a high level of exposure to the founding team, especially our founder and CFO Michael
  • You will have the chance to build a world-class finance department with lots of room to develop and drive your own ideas
  • You will get in-depth insights into all areas of JustWatch and be part of a great success story off the beaten track of VC-funded start-ups
  • A challenging environment with an open feedback culture and a strong focus on personal development
