  • Management Accountant

    February 10, 2017

    Who are we?
    We’re Flexion, a fast-moving fully-funded tech growth company based in Chelsea Harbour, London. We don’t make mobile games, but we are actively involved in the mobile gaming industry - an industry worth USD 40bn. We’re driving the creation of an open market for Android games by allowing game developers to distribute and monetize in the fragmented Android landscape.  We are world leading, disruptive, highly growth focused and we work with most of the top names within mobile.  

    Due to our growth, we need to expand our small, dynamic, flat and fast-paced finance team to assist the Financial Controller. 


    • You will be working with the Finance Assistant and report to the Financial Controller
    • You will prepare accurate management accounts on a monthly basis, with the push to meet tight deadlines
    • You will prepare and submit VAT returns, EC sales lists as well as MOSS returns
    • You’ll keep Flexion’s books in tip top order with regular balance sheet and profit and loss reconciliations and reviewing team members work
    • You will drive improvements in management accounting, financial controls and processes as we are preparing the company for a growth stock listing
    • You will support our annual audit 
    • You will provide support in the production of settlement reports to our partners
    • You will communicate with management, sales team and clients to ensure accurate and timely invoicing
    • You will handle customer on-boarding and financial customer service
    • You will occasionally support the CFO with company forecasting, board reporting, ad-hoc projects and analytical work

    Who are we looking for?
    You will have one to two years of solid experience in management accounting, good data management skills and a real commercial sense. You are strong in accruals accounting and you have Excel skills that make others envious but are still looking to further develop your skills. SAGE 50 experience and an accounting qualification is a plus but not essential. 

    As a person, you’re ambitious, eager, enthusiastic, willing, able to learn quickly and you strive in an environment with constant new challenges. As a tech growth company, we are looking for somebody who can handle an extensive work load and possesses a can-do attitude. As you are expected to work independently, more or less from day one, it’s also very important that you are well organised, structured, detail oriented and accurate. 

    Application
    If you are interested in applying for this position, please explain why: i) you are strong in management accounting ii) you can handle big data excel analytics, and iii) you have a strong and broad commercial sense, attach your CV and email your application to finance-careers@flexionmobile.com.

    We will reply to successful applicants within one week of receiving your CV. It is with regret that we are unable to respond personally to each individual application. We will not respond to any recruitment agencies.
