Financial Controller Icon

Financial Controller

We are now expanding our Financial team both in Krakow and Kyiv. We are searching for exceptional professionals to make a significant contribution to running financial operations. Ideally, you will be able to blend your own vision into Railsware’s way of doing finances.

As our perfect candidate, you can operate easily with Management and Financial Accounting, Data Analytics, and Legal tasks. We need a flexible person willing to help us with a diverse scope of responsibilities.

Railsware tries to get rid of unnecessary bureaucracy. Our goal is to automate and conceptualize 80% of our processes, so those become UNBORING! This will let us achieve 100% super diligent results with less manual work.

Description of you

  • You are a strategic thinker and a problem solver by nature. You are flexible in sticking together smart policies, corporate structures, financial accounting rules and optimized processes. You also think which decision in long term makes most sense so the business can gain the most. While thinking long-term, you can also solve most important and urgent issues that bother us the most.
  • You are proactive in suggesting solutions that will complement our strategy. You can review current plans objectively, share your opinion, and add ideas when needed. You do not limit yourself to just confirming that everything that we do in a current setup is great. We are always ready to start doing things in a better way.
  • You can grasp context quickly and ask relevant questions to clarify things, trying to understand the deepest aspects of the context. You adapt your knowledge to the current context on which you work on and try to connect many contexts in your head, so you can easily navigate between them when working on different things.
  • You keep the ownership of the context through making notes. This is far more important than fitting into the speed of the meeting dictated by attendees. You know that it is crucial to understand as much as possible later on, instead of hoping that you can remember everything. That’s why you can pause somebody and say "wait, let me write this down" when needed.

Your responsibilities

  • Collaboration with our CFO and CEO on different projects related to the financial operations of entities located in different countries.
  • Management of all financial processes of the company. Building automation tools with Google Sheets and Data Blending approach to support them.
  • Ensuring that important documentation is done properly and on time. This includes preparing cooperation agreements, NDAs, bank references, and so on. , You will also manage our contractors’ database.
  • Management of benefits applicable to our team members.You will make sure that all their bonuses and perks are included in their salaries, and financial transactions are done on time.
  • Hardware and inventory management. This includes buying equipment and making sure that it is included in proper budgets.
