FP&A Analyst (f/m/d)


is Germany's best-known AI company. We develop neural networks to help people work with language. With DeepL Translator, we have created the world's best machine translation system and made it available free of charge to everyone online. Over the next few years, we aim to make DeepL the world's leading language technology company.

Our goal is to overcome language barriers and bring cultures closer together.

What distinguishes us from other companies?

DeepL (formerly Linguee) was founded by developers and researchers. We focus on the development of new, exciting products, which is why we spend a lot of time actively researching the latest topics. We understand the challenges of developing new products and try to meet them with an agile and dynamic way of working. Our work culture is very open because we want our employees to feel comfortable. In our daily work we use modern technologies - not only to translate texts, but also to create the world's best dictionaries, and solve other language problems.

When we tell people about DeepL as an employer, reactions are overwhelmingly positive. Maybe it's because they have enjoyed our services, or maybe they just want to get on board with our quest to break down language barriers and facilitate communication.

Your choice

We are constantly looking for outstanding employees! Currently, we offer remote work in Germany, the Netherlands, the UK and Poland. Whether you would like to work from home in one of these countries or from one of our offices in Cologne, London or Paderborn: the choice is yours. No matter where you choose to work from, our way of working is designed to make you an essential part of the team.

What will you be doing at DeepL?

During this phase of explosive growth, you will be able to apply your expertise in financial planning and analysis. As a strongly growing company at the cutting edge of technology, we want to evolve our financial rigor and insights accordingly. We are passionate about data, automation, and scalable processes. In this role, you will have the opportunity to design and roll out a collaborative, rolling planning cycle and analysis framework in a way that you would have always wanted to see it implemented. You will work closely with the CFO, the FP&A Manager as well as the other members of the finance team and our wider business functions. You will gain insights into all business aspects of a fast-growing technology business.


Your responsibilities

  • Participate and optimize core FP&A processes: annual and quarterly planning, monthly forecasting partnering with corporate functions
  • Evaluate and help implement tools, systems and processes by mapping cross functional dependencies to deliver operational excellence
  • Leverage data, analytics and business understanding to develop and monitor critical financial performance metrics, communicate key insights and support decision making of relevant stakeholders
  • Be an expert partner to the wider company on KPIs, financial analysis and competitive benchmarking
  • Help prepare monthly and quarterly management and board reporting - analyze financial results, distill key trends, assess business risk, and communicate key messages to senior leaders

What we offer

  • The opportunity to work and learn in a financial planning function that builds things the way you would have always loved to see it done: in a modern, cloud-based, user-centric and flexible yet robust manner
  • A small, effective, and highly skilled team enjoying mutual trust and truly short decision-making processes
  • Meaningful work: We overcome language barriers and thus bring cultures closer together. Did you know that DeepL is already used by over 100 million people?
  • Lots of flexibility to work fully remote or in our vibrant office in Cologne

About you

  • 2-5 years of FP&A experience, preferably in a high-growth SaaS environment supporting Senior Leadership; alternatively, you’ve started your career in a highly analytical function in investment banking, consulting or technology companies and now want to apply yourself in a high-growth ‘scale-up’.
  • Strong proficiency in Excel, planning tools and other cloud-based technologies. While you are hands-on, you hate solving problems manually but want to do everything in an automated, scalable way.
  • You have excellent communication skills (written and verbal) to support collaboration across teams, you build strong relationships at all levels, and communicate the state of the business to key audiences in the organization.
  • Ability to work independently, think objectively, and interpret meaningful and insightful narratives from both quantitative as well as qualitative data.
  • As our ideal candidate, you have exceptional skills in financial planning, financial analysis and data analytics and an innovative mindset to approach finance problems differently. Our innovation does not stay in Research and Development.
  • Fluent in English, German is a plus.

We are looking forward to your application!
