Chief Financial Officer

Are you the data-driven leader who’ll steer our rapid international growth?

FULL-TIME · AMSTERDAM

VanMoof is a fast-moving bike company set for major growth. We’re looking for a Chief Finance Officer who’ll take charge of our cash flow, provide laser-accurate forecasts, and identify key opportunities for growth.

As CFO, you’ll get involved at pretty much every level, expanding your team to help streamline our processes. You’ll turn raw data into workable strategy, connect with our international teams to capitalize on opportunities, connect with existing and future investors, and lead the charge to financial success on every front. 

Key responsibilities:

  • Present daily performance insights alongside reliable and consistent monthly figures and forecasts, supported by deep research
  • Take control of the financials, with the ability to explain differences between previous periods and forecast – no surprises, please!
  • Identify our current sources of growth, and show where it will come from in the future
  • Built and mentor a world-class finance team which can support future (large scale) growth
  • Take the lead and develop a rock-solid multi-year business plan
  • Get actively involved in company strategy and coordinate investment planning
  • Maintain and improve investor relations, expanding our investor base to match our growth
  • Liaise with tax and custom authorities
  • Protect VanMoof’s intellectual property, while mitigating risk


The CFO we're looking for has:

  • A Master’s degree in Business Economics, or equivalent
  • At least 10 years financial management experience, preferably in an international environment
  • People leadership skills
  • The willingness to dive into nitty-gritties to achieve results
  • Able to travel internationally
  • Excellent written and spoken English (Dutch is helpful, but not essential)
  • Bonus points for retail experience 

Our offer:

  • Competitive salary
  • Your own VanMoof, of course
  • A dynamic working environment in the heart of Amsterdam
  • A central spot in our ambitious, friendly, and rapidly growing international team
  • No boring days, ever

Now, the touchy-feely stuff:

We want someone to change the world with us.
We want to make the world a better place with our bikes, and to do that we need a rock-solid financial strategy to fuel the growth. We’re after someone who shares our vision...and goes the extra mile to bring it to life.

You’ll need to be as stubbornly focused as we are.
We do more with less here. So we’ll need you to identify opportunities for growth, invest where it counts, and make (really) difficult decisions every single day. 

And you'll have to be damn inventive.
We don't just want someone who can tick the boxes, we're looking for someone who can solve problems of all sizes, lean into the chaos, and help us get better every day. We're growing like crazy, so you'll also need the patience of a saint and the persistence of a bulldog. Things move fast here, but that’s all part of the fun. 

'Nuff said. Do you want to roll your sleeves up and get your hands dirty in all the making, building, problem-solving and growing we'll be doing in 2018? Click the yellow button below and let's get this party started!
