Financial Controller

Are you ready to join our very ambitious scale-up, helping us to grow our business even further?

About us

Up to 15 percent of a major city’s space is used for parking. At the same time, roughly 85 percent of existing parking spaces are daily unoccupied. At ParkBee, we are on a mission to change that. We develop smart technology to optimise the use of existing parking space, thereby allowing cities to reduce on-street parking and give space back to the city. These last few years we have seen our business grow exponentially and our goal is to expand even further!

As a part of this growth, we are on the lookout for a top-notch Financial Controller. Someone with a good eye for detail, outstanding financial skills and the ability to execute plans for financial growth.

As part of our team, you will support the broader financial and corporate development team and report directly to the CFO. With your strategic planning and exceptional numerical proficiency, you assist our organisation in maintaining positive revenue and financial growth.

  • Monitoring internal controls and analyzing KPI’s 
  • Participating in budgeting processes
  • Developing plans for financial growth
  • Evaluating and managing risk
