The role

Personio raised its Series D of over $125m in January this year, valuing the company at $1.7bn and making it one of Europe’s most valuable tech startups. While Personio is experiencing an exciting period of fast growth, with a team of currently over 1,000  employees across four offices in Europe, corporate and strategic finance topics become more and more relevant. We are therefore expanding our team and are looking for a Corporate Finance Associate (m/f/d) to join us.

As a Corporate Finance Associate, you will work on a broad range of exciting topics, from analytical and operational tasks (such as taking ownership of our comps analysis) to highly strategic projects (working on fundraising execution or investor reporting) and everything in between.

  • You are very structured about how to prioritise work and time
  • You bring a high-level of proactivity as well as a get-stuff-done mentality to drive continuous improvement
  • Your workstyle is diligent and you like analytical tasks, but you’re also happy to do manual tasks if they are needed to move the company forward
  • You have proven the ability to quickly learn new things
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills in English are a must
  • Effective communication skills demonstrated by the ability to convert complex topics to insightful outputs

Your learnings

  • Bring an external capital markets perspective to internal discussions and decision making (e.g. market sizing, industry benchmarks, valuation levels)
  • Take ownership of Personio’s peer set analysis (continuously upgrade set of comparable companies and reporting around it)
  • Coordinate and compile ongoing investor communication (monthly reporting, quarterly and annual submissions, ad hoc requests)
  • Support funding related activities as they occur
  • Support treasury related activities like strategically managing our cash balance and communication with partner banks
  • Contribute to financial analysis, reports and dashboard creation
  • Support strategic projects and initiatives as they emerge (BIFL department or company-wide)
  • Support with preparation of presentations on an ad hoc basis for strategic finance topics
