Finance & Operations Manager, Finland

Job description

We are looking for a Finance and Operations Manager to strengthen our team. This role is a unique opportunity to have an impact on Icebreaker's mission, build processes and be part of an exciting and growing industry!

Icebreaker.vc is a venture capital fund with €140M under management. We started Icebreaker.vc because we wanted to provide better support for founders to take their ideas forward and build winning tech companies. We invest in the idea- and pre-seed stages. Our companies have raised funding from some of the top venture capitalists from around the world.

How will you contribute in taking Icebreaker.vc to the next level?

To support our work with the founding teams we are investing in, our own operations, reporting and finances should run smoothly. We are looking for a person who gets excited about organizing and running finance operations. You have love towards numbers, connecting dots and organizing sometimes complex matters. As our Finance & Operations manager, you are able to handle complexity, understand the requirements, keep in touch with stakeholders and make it all come together in a timely manner making the process enjoyable for everyone. It’s challenging but rewarding, and you get to work with great people and get an insight into an exciting industry.

The role will evolve over time and we are looking for someone who enjoys taking ownership and pro-actively improving our ways of working. Good knowledge of financial reporting, setting up processes and love towards technology and startups are must-haves. Much of the reporting is in Finnish and English so fluency in those languages is required. We have been doing all these tasks in-house so far so we can support you, but we are looking for someone who can take the work to the next level.


In this role, you'll get the opportunity to:

  • Develop and grow – you’ll be encouraged to grow and take ownership of your work and the processes. You will have both external and internal support if and when needed.

  • Be flexible in how and where you work. You’ll have the opportunity to work autonomously and decide the structure of your own work.

  • Be creative – we value ideas over hierarchy and are always eager to hear what you got in mind!

  • Have impact – we want to be the best in supporting early-stage teams to build global winners and that’s why we’re constantly measuring and improving our own ways of working.

  • Have fun – we are passionate and work hard while having a lot of fun! We also organize quarterly team days which are always a hoot!
