As we continue to scale and mature our Finance team, we’re on the hunt for an experienced Accounting professional to join us in Tallinn. As an accounting implementation project manager you will contribute to scaleable finance integrations of our new and existing product suite. 

This is not a standard project management role – we are looking for someone that loves the challenge of delivering complex projects. You will be working independently on integrations into the finance system, navigating an array of diverse and at times conflicting stakeholder needs. 

Your mission:

  • The customer side of the Accounting team ensures that anything launched in Wise which has a financial impact is integrated into our financial systems and is properly represented and controlled This involves working across different teams within the business to ensure launches are built and completed in a timely and compliant manner.

  • Apply your in-depth knowledge in accounting – Challenge your technical skills, knowledge and abilities via applying them in a dynamic role
  • Inspire teams with your ideas, strategy, an self-starting attitude
  • Grow with the role – You will have the opportunity to develop your leadership skills as the business and Finance function grows in complexity.

About you:

  • Theory – You have a professional finance qualification such as the ACA, ACCA, CPA or equivalent with proven post qualification experience. You have a thorough knowledge of accounting principles.
  • Practice –  You have managed projects and demonstrated resilience to break through and overcome challenges. You may have built things from scratch.
  • Ownership –  You work independently, assume responsibility and make your own judgements. Be prepared to take ownership over complex new areas and solve problems with minimal guidance.
  • Balance – You have demonstrated experience and confidence in decision making with respect to prioritisation of multiple deliverables based on risk, business need as well as other factors. 
  • Love getting things done – You are not afraid to roll up your sleeves and take responsibility to do whatever needs doing to solve problems.
  • Collaborative and Influencing Skills – You work well in an international team environment, and know how to have an impact through others. You have partnered with a complex internal and external stakeholder group and have strong communication skills. 
  • Development – You are keen to learn and develop your knowledge of how a FinTech and fast growing scale-up operates. 
  • You enjoy getting deep into the processing logic. You like to be thorough and understand how things work and all their dependencies in-depth. 
  • Travel – you’re happy to occasionally travel internationally to other Wise offices (e.g. London) or for team offsites.

Extra experience that would be great:

    • Relevant industry experience (fin tech or financial services)
  • Basic SQL 
  • Working with business analytics tools (e.g. Looker)
  • Communications and presentation skills

We’re people without borders — without judgement or prejudice, too. We want to work with the best people, no matter their background. So if you’re passionate about learning new things and keen to join our mission, you’ll fit right in.
