We are looking for someone who will help us in overseeing and optimizing the financial operations of 24Slides with the purpose of improving the economic and financial performance of the company. The role should ensure control, accuracy, and predictability in revenue and costs. 24Slides exist to empower people in emerging markets and this role is really about building a solid foundation to enable that.
You will have both a day-to-day and ongoing impact on company operations, helping us to analyze, strategize, and grow our financial position. You should not only understand current accounting practices and trends, but also have an understanding of a global setup with multiple legal entities and internal transfers. You will be reporting directly to our CFO, and you will be comfortable in a role that demands clear communication and presentation skills as well as an urge to continuously challenge and improve the status quo.
We live by these important values at 24Slides.
We care about each other, our team, ourselves and we make sure to show that in everything that we do.
We are ambiguous:
We shoot for the moon and speed of execution is important to us. At the same time, we make sure to make the best possible decision for 24Slides, for our team and for ourselves.
We keep growing:
We invest in making everyone the best version of themselves through training as well as providing feedback to each other. It is important to see mistakes as an opportunity to learn and grow.
We trust in each other:
In our team, all ideas are welcome, also the weird ones. We are open and transparent and make sure to communicate proactively with each other and the rest of 24Slides in order to continuously build trust.
We are brave:
Even if we feel it is uncomfortable, we make sure to challenge ideas, conclusions and in general voice our opinion even though it might not be a popular one in order to get to know each other better and to also make the best decision possible. We believe in working as a team and coming up with solutions together.

We’re growing fast and are always looking for the best talent to join our team.
But we’re not just about presentation design. Our ambitions are much greater. As a B-Corp, we have a strong mission to make a positive impact in the world, improving the lives of our team members in emerging markets through education, sustainability, and support. That means things like full health insurance, investing in their growth, healthy lunches and much more. We pride ourselves on making sure our teams in Indonesia, Ukraine and Peru enjoy working conditions that are even better than here in Scandinavia.
Why do we do this? Because by showing the world the amazing talents available in emerging markets and empowering those talents with the tools to compete on the global stage, we want to prove that there IS a better way to do business with emerging markets and encourage others to follow suit.
