  • Assist in processing various customer payments (e.g., checks, wire transfers) and updating payment records in our accounting system
  • Assist customers with billing inquiries, payment discrepancies, and account reconciliation, ensuring timely and professional resolution
  • Contribute to the preparation of reports and analyses related to order-to-cash processes, including accounts receivable aging and cash collections
  • Identify opportunities to streamline processes, boost efficiency, and improve customer satisfaction, and assist in implementing these improvements
  • Support the OTC team with ad hoc projects and tasks, including data analysis, research, and special assignments

What you need to be successful

  • Fluent in both German and English, as you will be part of an international team
  • Interest in gaining practical experience in accounting and finance,  especially within the order-to-cash cycle - previous work or internship experience in Finance/Accounting would be a plus
  • An analytical mindset, a strong attention to detail and the ability to prioritize tasks and manage time efficiently
  • A team player with a customer-oriented approach and a proactive attitude

What you’ll get

  • Learning Curve - as a Working Student at Staffbase, you’ll be fully integrated to the team and gain valuable experiences that help you to foster your future career. Not rarely we’re hiring former working students as full-time employees after their student time with us. 
  • Office Sports - join our free sport courses in the offices. 
  • Connect with your team - you will participate in team offsites, on-site meetings and our yearly Staffbase camp
  • Wellbeing - in addition to our yearly vacation of 30 days, we’re running a 4-day-work week every year in August with full payment. 
  • Volunteers Day - you’ll get one day off per year for supporting a social project. We will donate a small amount for that project in addition. 
  • Hybrid Work - as a working student, you will join the office regularly to get the best learning experience. But for times you work from home, we support you with an extra monitor, keyboard, computer mouse and headset. 
  • Employee Referral Program - one of your friends is a fit to one of our full-time openings? Refer them and get a referral bonus paid.
