Your team

While the Finance team may be a small team here, they do make a large impact on us – they handle our money after all. As you may have guessed, this means planning, organizing, auditing, accounting for and controlling our finances. Yes, they’re smart people and love crunching numbers but they also enjoy the fresh outdoors.

Your Mission

As a financial accountant, you will be responsible for the accounts of our Swiss company and its foreign subsidiaries. You will be the one overseeing and fulfilling the daily operational tasks and the opportunity of developing processes and improving efficiency just rounds it all up for you. This role covers the following areas:

  • Financial accounting for the Swiss company, including associated administration, plus accountancy services for our foreign companies (currently using Abacus)
  • Coordination and preparation of the consolidated monthly, quarterly and annual financial
    statements (coordination, accruals and deferrals, preparing the reports for Controlling), including reporting according to the Swiss Code of Obligations (OR) and SWISS GAAP FER
  • Responsibility for accounts receivable for our subscription business via Zuora
  • Accounts payable, including approval of expenditure and expenses, as well as payment runs
  • Preparation of the tax return and value added tax returns in Switzerland and abroad
  • Assisting with and preparing for the audit as well as support with the budget
  • Development of processes with the goal of improved financial accounting efficiency
  • Point of contact for CEO and CFO in all matters pertaining to accounting

Your Story

  • You have a Swiss Federal Professional Education and Training Diploma in finance and accounting.
  • You are experienced as a financial accountant in an international setting.
  • You have good IT skills (especially Excel and Abacus; other ERP systems are an advantage).
  • You are no stranger to balance sheet accounting, invoicing and statutory requirements (OR, SWISS GAAP FER, consolidation).
  • Your friends would describe you as a problem solver, pragmatic, easy-going, independent but also a team player.
  • You are self-motivated, authentic, efficient, curious, and always honest.
  • Your attention to detail is impeccable.
  • You take a high degree of ownership over your work.
  • You’re proficient in German and English.


Frontify is a very dynamic company where things change quickly and opportunities arise often, providing a lot of space for personal development. We're big on flexibility, and providing our Frontify family with time for side projects. Our office is pretty great, but more important is our culture of freedom, trust, learning, advancement, and happiness. Our word only counts for so much, though.
