Finance & Accounting Manager for industrial software company

Do you want to build the finance and accounting function in a software company with ambitious plans for growth? And do you dream of a flexible working day with room for a life in balance? Then you might be our new Finance and Accounting Manager.

Working out of our office in Aarhus, you will play a key role in ensuring the solid economic foundation required for delivering software solutions that make a real difference to leading companies within pharmaceuticals, industrial manufacturing and more.

About the job

As the finance function has been handled by an external partner until now, you will be our first ever in-house Finance and Accounting manager. So, if you dream of building your own department from scratch, this is your chance.

You will head up the finance and accounting function in CIM. In the beginning you will rely on the assistance of our external partner, but over time we would like to insource the different functions related to finance, accounting, reporting, bookkeeping, project follow-up, invoicing, salary payments, etc. This means that you will also be responsible for building a team around you with the right competencies for these functions.

You will have full-stack responsibility – economic and financial strategy, budgeting, forecasts, accounting, invoicing, payments, VAT, salaries, etc.

CIM is owned by the Swedish listed company XANO Industri AB, so most of the reporting is done in collaboration with our parent company.

You will be working closely with the CEO, CCO, and the directors in software development.

About you

We imagine that you

  • have at least 5 years of experience in a similar role, as business controller, auditor or CFO
  • have a relevant degree in financing and/or economics
  • possess great communication skills and are a strong team player
  • combine business acumen with a secure sense of how best to create value in your work
  • can translate your professional knowledge into layman terms
  • speak and write English at a professional level

We encourage anyone qualified to apply for the position regardless of age, gender, religion or ethnicity.

What we offer

Freedom and flexibility
Do you prefer working from home, or do you show up at the office on Monday morning at 7 a.m., ready to hear about your colleague’s weekend? With us, you choose how to organize your 37-hour working week, because we know that you are the expert on what makes you happy and efficient. Whether that means that a 4-day working week, an extended summer vacation, or something else is up to you.

A chance to make a difference
Our solutions create real value in a wide range of industries in which they contribute to efficient production with much less waste, reduced carbon emissions, as well as better, safer medicine and industrial products. We are quite proud of that.

The best colleagues
Many of us have been part of CIM for decades, others have just joined us. We all have in common that we are highly competent individualists who also value being part of a team. We go on an annual skiing trip together, and you are more than welcome to join us, whether you are a beginner or a complete pro.

Focus on what is important
We think that your working day should be filled with what you do best, and we focus on creating the best framework for that. This means that we keep meetings to an absolute minimum and that time-consuming processes and office politics are something that we actively avoid. The physical settings are spacious and bright — and with a great lunch every day, of course. 

Who is CIM?

With software products and solutions covering the entire chain from data collection to analysis and presentation, we help our customers make critical business decisions based on data. Our customers comprise most major Danish industrial companies such as Danfoss, Siemens, Vestas, GN, Grundfos, and Mærsk. In the pharmaceutical industry, we have a foothold with some of the largest companies in the world, including Pfizer, Novo Nordisk, and Merck.

We are a Microsoft Gold Partner and National Instruments Center of Excellence, and, with more than 20 years in the industry, we dare say that we have more knowledge and know-how than most. The team consists of 50 bright individuals working in our offices in Aarhus, Hørsholm, and Fredericia. Our ambitions and growth plans are big and, as part of this great journey, CIM has recently joined the Swedish industrial group XANO Industri AB.
