Role Background

Wolt is a Finnish technology company and we’re best known for our food delivery platform. We’ve grown significantly in the last three years, expanding our operations from just four countries across the Nordics, to 23 countries across Europe and Asia today.

Our Finance team has played a key role in this journey - supporting our global operations from their central Helsinki hub has been no easy feat, but this group of dedicated and motivated professionals have made it seem effortless!

As we continue to scale, we’re now looking for an Accounting Specialist to help us focus on our local accounting efforts in Japan. You will sit with the local country team in Tokyo, but also you work directly with the centralized Finance team in Helsinki HQ. The Accounting Specialist is working with the local accounting and reporting related matters while assisting the local teams with accounting related enquiries, such as payment follow-ups, explanations of reports provided to restaurant partners etc.

What makes the Finance team so special is our ‘service first’ approach to the job - we enjoy creating strong communication loops with the wider business, so that bottlenecks are minimized and that things get done quickly and efficiently.  

Everybody is accountable for their own workload and takes pride in being meticulous and precise. We also enjoy learning and developing as we go - it’s important that you share this approach! :)

What you'll be doing

  • Assisting in local statutory accounting and reporting and tax compliance matters; including but not limited to; preparation of monthly closing procedures, preparation of local financial statements, corporate tax and consumption tax returns 
  • Processing and booking of purchase invoices
  • Processing of expense claims
  • Co-ordinating and reporting local inventory counts
  • Assisting with local audit requests.


 

Our humble expectations

  • Good experience with local statutory accounting- and tax compliance
  • Solid background in relevant bookkeeping or accounting roles, preferably from a multinational company
  • A degree in accounting or CPA is a plus
  • Demonstrable experience of autonomous problem-solving in a fast-paced environment
  • Excellent MS Excel skills
  • Prior experience in NetSuite is an advantage
  • Fluent in Japanese and English, both spoken and written
  • Must be able to be based in Tokyo.
