Job Description

We are looking for an eager CPA-type who is looking for a change of pace from a typical corporate or accounting firm life. If you are interested in joining a young, dynamic team on an exciting fast-growth company and want to take an active role shaping the business of a well-funded startup from the place it matters most, the bottom line, we’d love to talk to you.

**Who are we?**

Factory is the new model for office space, designed for entrepreneurs by entrepreneurs. We provide fast-growing startups and technology companies with flexible, well-designed office spaces with communal areas for networking, sharing and collaboration. We aren’t a coworking concept, business club, accelerator or office broker - but rather a team of passionate entrepreneurs shaping how technology companies interact with space and one another. Our Playbook is our bible and it helps define how we operate. We have collaborated and hosted events with some of the biggest brands in the startup and technology sectors, and are now - with a new set of tech and real estate investors - expanding to more cities within Europe.

**The Role & Responsibilities:**

Factory is changing the way real estate is built for startups and we need a detail-oriented and assertive team member to help us structure our business as we scale to challenge this sector. This role covers bookkeeping, accounting, budgeting and business planning for Factory as well as our daughter companies, such as Silicon Allee. You’ll be the steady backbone that keeps our company running. Ideally this role could also grow quickly to manage our business operations on a global scale.

If you’re structured, organized, can perform magic with spreadsheets and are willing to jump into a tax tornado and tame it, let’s talk!

Core duties:

• Keep the books of Factory and its daughter companies organized and well-structured.
• Work closely with the senior management to create and manage budgets.
• Communicate with accountants to make sure taxes are filed timely.
• Manage accounts received and payable.
• Manage the execution of contracts (internally and externally).
• Communicate with external partners and service providers.
• Help plan and book travel.
• Work closely with the Community Lead to coordinate and quickly solve tenant needs.
• Work closely with Events Lead to make sure event costs are covered.
• Manage the team office space.

**Our Ideal Candidate:**

We’re seeking a structured individual who is excited to join a fast-paced startup and grow together with our company. You should be eager and excited to take an active role structuring the company for growth, not just punching the clock. You should be excited about change:

Must have:

• Prior experience in bookkeeping, accounting, finance, or office management
• Fluent in German and English
• Experience in creating business plans
• Highly Organized
• Independently-minded
• Detailed-oriented
• Ability to multitask
• Proficiency in spreadsheet software (Excel, Google Sheets)
• Willingness to travel
• Visa or allowance to work in Germany (ideally EU)

Nice-to-have:

• Experience in Law or Contract-writing
• Experience in Real Estate
• Experience managing venture-backed startup companies
• An established international network of startup / tech players
• Interest & experience in Social Media / Content
• Interest in Event Management
• Experience working in a Coworking space
• Knowledge of German company tax requirements
• Proficiency in online invoicing software (Wave, Freshbooks, etc)
