Stockholm, Stockholm, Sweden

Sep 7

Mentimeter is one of the fastest growing companies in Sweden (Gasell, EY, Deloitte), operating a global SaaS business from it’s headquarter in Stockholm. Our vision is to make it easy to listen and be heard by transforming presentations and meetings into fun and interactive experiences.

Our Group Financial Controller will go on maternity leave during 2023 and we are now looking for someone to take on that role in a 12-14 month interim assignment starting December 2022.

As a Group Financial Controller at Mentimeter you will be an integral part of a creative and driven cross-functional team that helps the entire Mentimeter organization be the best they can be (the team is called Catalyst).

In this role you will report to and collaborate closely with our CFO in owning and developing financial processes and analysis. You will be working with stakeholders from all parts of the organization and help build a scalable, analytics-driven and business minded finance organization from the ground.

What you'll do!

We are looking for a Group Financial Controller with specialist skills in Consolidation and IFRS that will sit with our Finance team in Stockholm.

We’re currently a small streamlined finance team consisting of four people with bookkeeping and accounting outsourced to a third party. In the fall of 2021 we opened our first foreign subsidiary and consolidated financial statements are prepared according to IFRS standards, and the parent company according to RFR2, in quarterly and annual reporting.

The key responsibility is to lead the group consolidation work on a monthly basis and delivering Interim Reports and Annual Reports working closely with the CFO and business stakeholders. You will be the main point of contact with our foreign accounting partners and will be responsible for making sure that our Transfer Pricing Policy is followed and up to date as well as keeping our accounting policies in line with best practice. In case of M&A this role will be heavily involved in the accounting and reporting matters that flow from such transactions.

Since the team is quite small there are also – from time to time - chances to get into the nitty-gritty daily tasks; keeping deadlines and helping getting reports delivered in good order . This is a team effort!

Considering the expansion phase Mentimeter is in, the role is both to keep the good current standard, and to develop and adjust policies and reporting procedures to meet any changes that will arise. Here an understanding of developments in IFRS is important and the ability to implement these working with the relevant business stakeholders.

You will be working in our ERP system PE Accounting, and in Konsolidator for consolidation. PE Accounting is also our outsourcing partner in terms of accounting and bookkeeping so they will be one of your key stakeholders.

This role will report to the CFO.
