**Are you ready to thrive as a Financial Controller in a Dynamic SaaS Environment?** 

Nice to meet you! I’m [Laura](https://www.linkedin.com/in/laura-honkanen-01a00b60/) from LeadDesk’s Talent Team. Together with [Kaisa](https://www.linkedin.com/in/kaisa-r%C3%B6nkk%C3%B6/), our CFO, we're strengthening the Finance team. 

Founded in 2010, LeadDesk is on a mission to transform the call center industry, empowering agents to close deals and resolve cases efficiently from day one. 

As part of our Finance team, your role as a **Financial Controller** is crucial. We prioritize accurate reporting, robust controls, and strategic financial planning to drive LeadDesk's objectives forward.

• *What’s in it for you**
• Monthly salary of €4000–4500.

• Role... with an immediate impact on the company’s financial day-to-day operations.
• Fin-tastic team along with an action-packed and supportive environment. We don’t take ourselves too seriously! Besides numbers, we love, e.g., delicious team lunches and occasional after works.
• Flexible office hours and a **hybrid** work model. Our HQ office is situated in the heart of Helsinki, conveniently accessible via public transportation. It’d be a win-win if you reside in the Helsinki metropolitan area as the team works onsite 2–3 days a week.
• As **benefits** we offer a phone benefit, lunch- and sports benefit (Edenred), wide Occupational healthcare, snacks, and coffee/tea at the office (smoothies, protein drinks, porridge, fruits etc.) as well as sports activities paid for by the company.

Here’s what your future colleague Kia has to say about her experience at LeadDesk: 
• “The opportunities to grow within the company are multiple. But if I had to choose our very best asset, it’d be people. We support each other and strive to help others learn and succeed.”* 
• *What** **you can expect as our Financial Controller at LeadDesk**

In your role, you are responsible for the accuracy of group consolidation and company level accounting, as well as tasks related to financial statements and taxation. You work closely with outsourced partners like auditors and bookkeeping. Your responsibilities include active participation in activities such as period-end closing procedures, quarterly reporting, preparation of journal entries, reconciliations, and updating balance sheet specifications.
