Accounts Payable & Receivable Specialist (Dutch Speaking)

Job description

An Accounts Payable & Receivable specialist at Zivver has a sharp eye, a structured mindset and loves to get down to the nitty-gritty. You take care of the input of all our financial systems and monitor the follow-up. 
Big responsibility? Absolutely. But if you like numbers and spreadsheets as much as our finance & business controllers Teije and Hugo do, then this might be an awesome career move for 2022. You will work closely with both of them and they will help you to quickly get up to speed with your day-to-day tasks on Finance related projects, from accounts receivable and accounts payable to managing customer requests, creating new subscriptions in our systems and basically everything that comes with it.

Our company grows fast, and next to your day-to-day tasks you will be working on projects to further improve and professionalize our financial systems and processes. Just like our company, we like you to grow as well: our ambition is that you develop into a full-fledged finance professional with increasing responsibility over the record-to-report chain. That’s what your colleague Teije did too: “Working at Zivver you have good support in your colleagues and the freedom to voice ideas for improvements. The nature of a scale-up like Zivver leaves many opportunities to improve workflows & pick up more responsibilities.I have now grown in a role where I was able to pick up much of the L2C process, revenue recognition and ownership of multiple (new) finance management systems.


Hot takes

  • You can start your day an hour later because you’re so accurate that you don’t have to correct your mistakes

  • Your brain is a calculator and sponge at the same time

  • Leave no invoice behind


A day at Zivver

Around 08:30 AM you start your day working from home. Recent developments lead to an increased share of remote working, but there is also the possibility to work at Zivver HQ. You fix yourself a cup of coffee and you start off doing your magic in Exact, Excel and Salesforce, your favorite pieces of software. As it’s Tuesday, you do a routine invoice check. You notice something strange, so you call one of the Project Leads to understand the matter. Now that’s out of the way, you’ll finish creating the new subscriptions for the customers that joined Zivver this week.

In the afternoon your focus is on the expenses. You make sure all declarations are processed on time and send a few Slack messages to managers who haven’t processed their approval flow. You notice a colleague hasn’t used the right VAT percentage and correct the error. You also check the intranet how-to on declarations and update the process description so the mistakes are prevented from happening in the future.

After organizing your weekly tasks, you notice there’s still room for more things to do. You check with Hugo. if it’s okay for you to create the weekly report this time. As we encourage Zivvies to take on more responsibilities, Hugo is of course fine with you taking on this task. As you’d like this report to become one of your recurring tasks, you’re fired up and focused to ensure this week's report is the best one ever! After a final check by Hugo, you send it out yourself. Finally you join the daily end-of-day Finance call after which you close your laptop and look back on a rather productive day.
