Junior Finance Officer

We’re in an industry that’s all about numbers and typically really outdated when it comes to its finance processes. Can you guess what it is? Yep... Insurance.

That’s why we’re looking for you to help us fix it. We’ve managed to automate most insurance-based processes for 10 different products, and we’re ready for you to lend us a hand in automating our finances.

You’ll be joining us part-time to help our team take care of all the financial aspects of a small company. The best part of this position is that you’ll get the chance to own a finance role, establish the processes that we’ll follow, and make decisions in a competitive industry.

Why work at Feather?

  • Small team, flat hierarchy, and mission-driven. The usual buzzwords here, except we actually mean them. We’re small, lean, and we love what we're doing.
  • €1,200 annual learning budget. You can spend this on educating yourself: books, conferences, classes, etc.
  • €500 office furnishing budget. On top of all the company equipment that you'll be getting (MacBook, Monitor…), you'll be able to spend €500 on a nice and comfortable home office setup.

  • University degree in Accounting, Finance, Business, or similar related field

About us

Feather was founded in 2018 by Rob Schumacher and Vincent Audoire after both of them struggled to navigate the insurance system in Germany (even though they are European). They wanted to create insurance products that were as simple as they knew it could be. That’s why we’re building insurance to make all interactions easier and more transparent: from signing up and filing a claim to canceling. Our goal is to give people honest, unbiased advice, with the information they need to make the right decision. And, because of how complicated insurance is, we offer tools, articles, and support where people can reach out to a human about problems or questions they have. Currently, Feather has helped people from over 150 countries get insurance digitally and is expanding quickly.
