Financial Controller, USA and Canada

Adyen is looking for a Financial Controller to grow the Group Finance team in Amsterdam. The ideal candidate takes ownership of our local financials for the North American region (USA and Canada), has a drive to understand these and is able to tie this back to where we’re heading as a Group globally. A good understanding of accounting will get you off to a great start in this role and in combination with an open mind and willingness to take on new projects, success is almost guaranteed.

Being part of the centralized Financial Controlling team in Amsterdam means you’ll be working in the (financial) engine room of a registered and listed financial institution; being part of a relatively small team means you’ll be (in)directly involved in a lot of very interesting topics that reach beyond the North American borders.


What you’ll do

  • Take on responsibility for the financial controlling of Adyen’s North American entities, which includes accounting, statutory filings, tax and treasury matters;
  • Liaise with the local teams in the USA and Canada to provide support where necessary and be able to link the financial results to the direction of the business
  • Support and improve month-end and (half) year-end close processes;
  • Connect and collaborate with other regional Controllers and Group Finance team members to build a world-class Controlling team;
  • Be open for joining or taking the lead in any new project that'll arise in the Group Finance team of a rapidly growing company and challenge prevailing assumptions. 


Who you are

  • You have 3-7 years of experience in financial control/accounting/audit;
  • You have experience with US GAAP (US CPA is a plus);
  • You are detail-oriented and have strong analytical and multi-tasking skills;
  • Proactive in projects you lead, able to work independently but never afraid to ask for help;
  • Able to think 2 steps ahead, making sure that implemented solutions are scalable for Adyen’s rapid growth.

Our unobvious approach is a product of our diverse perspectives. This diversity of backgrounds, cultures, and perspectives is essential in helping us maintain our momentum. Our business and technical challenges are unique, we need as many different voices as possible to join us in solving them - voices like yours. So no matter where you’re from, who you love, or what you believe in, we welcome you to be your true self at Adyen.

What’s next?

Ensuring a smooth and enjoyable candidate experience is critical for us. We aim to get back to you regarding your application within 5 business days. Our interview process tends to take between 4 or 5 weeks to complete. Don’t be afraid to let us know if you need more flexibility.
