Financial Controller (f/m/d)

Germany, Berlin, BerlinBackbone

Job description

Climate change and biodiversity loss are accelerating and threatening the foundations of our lives. Food, especially meat, is a major cause of greenhouse gas emissions. We know it, yet all too often we give in to our cravings and choose meat instead of sustainable alternatives. And did you know: global meat consumption is growing massively!
We are convinced that irresistible pleasures, not compromise, are key to changing people’s ways. What the world needs is new food, so delicious that billions of people indulge in eating it, saving the planet as a beneficial side effect.
There’s no time to lose. Join us now and let’s build this positive future together!

Financial viability drives the success of Project Eaden: The better our financial performance, the more value we can create, and the bigger is the positive impact we can have in the world. For that we need you as our Financial Controller to help us plan our future activities, and to get full transparency of our actual performance. The objective, quantitative fact base you create is the single point of truth and crucial input for our decision making in the team, accounting, and reporting to authorities.

Job requirements

🛠 Your accountabilities

  • You develop and improve our financial models for business planning and forecasting.
  • You support our decision-making with quantitative insights from financial and non-financial data sources. You identify dependencies and levers of positive change and growth.
    • You prepare our financial reporting and KPI reporting for our team, investors, as well as regulatory and fiscal authorities. You coordinate and oversee our collaboration with external tax and accounting firms. 
  • You regularly measure, benchmark and report our performance related to environment, society, and governance (ESG)

☯ You are a good fit if …

  • have a passion for numbers, are hungry for mathematical truth, and can put numerical results in the context of reality
  • intuitively check results and spreadsheets for consistency, probability, and accuracy
  • think in logical chains and can explain complex interdependencies in an easily understandable way
  • have 3+ years work experience in financial controlling or consulting and a degree in Business Administration, ideally with a finance spike

💌 Why you should apply now

  1. We have just started. We can build everything from scratch without any legacy or constraints!
  2. Some of the brightest minds believe in us. We are backed by top tier VCs and awesome angels (happy to share details once we talk)
  3. The time is now! It’s the beginning of a new era. Food is undergoing a massive transformation. Let’s make sustainable food so irresistible that millions of consumers switch away from meat, fast!

🦄 A word on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

We believe in equal opportunities for all. We embrace diversity in every respect. The most important thing is that we all share the same basic values and can align on Eaden’s purpose. We welcome applications from all suitably qualified candidates, irrespective of age, colour, national origin, race, religion, gender, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or marital status.

🏯 Workspace and culture

We’re about to build something massive – a gentle giant. In around two to three years’ time we’ll have an internationally distributed team, which is why everything has to work remotely. For starters, though, we strongly believe that our culture and team spirit will benefit from spending most of our time together at one workplace, our beautiful office and kitchen-laboratory.
