The job

You will play a pivotal role in shaping the future of our company. You’ll work closely with the Managing Director and the management team to set financial goals, manage budgets, and drive growth. Your strategic thinking, expertise in financial planning, and leadership abilities are key to our business’ long-term success.

In this role, you are a member of the company’s management team and work closely with the business areas’ management teams. You oversee your organisation’s strategic and operational execution and lead a 10-member finance function (with three direct reports) aligned with the company’s goals. You also provide support for other public segment Visma companies when needed.

What’s needed

You have a robust professional experience in senior financial/leadership roles (a minimum of 10 years) ideally from a SaaS or technology environment.

We expect you to have exceptional financial modelling, analysis, and forecasting skills and proven experience in M&A’s. We also see value if you have experience in working in companies of different maturity levels. Due to compliance regulations, excellent Finnish language skills are mandatory.

You are proactive, innovative, and always informed. You are an excellent listener, communicator, network builder and show confidence around you. You are adept at understanding the cause-effect relationships of different business functions. You thrive in a fast-paced environment. Even though we expect you to operate at a strategic and tactical level, we hope it does not mean you are disconnected from finance routines.
