over de organisatie

Imagine a future where you can earn 500€ per year just by charging your car. Now imagine a job where you helped make this happen. Our Deftpower team has big ideas for improving electric car charging and draws on more than a decade’s worth of experience in the EV charging business in realising them.

We are rapidly building Europe´s most advanced platform, recalibrating electric vehicle drivers, their cars, charging points and the grid in a sustainable eco-system. One in which everything is integrated, and anyone can join. We believe that this market needs to grow quickly, and that with the right team - our clients and EV drivers can be happier, businesses more profitable, and society cleaner.

Because very relevant people and companies believe in us, we can grow rapidly over the next two years. As a result, we're on the lookout for new, geeky, funny, and brilliant team members to join us!

To help us in our mission we are looking for a Business Analyst, for our offices in either Arnhem or Berlin.


For this position, it is important that you are from the EU (Deftpower is not acknowledged referent) and therefore have a work permit to work in the Netherlands or Germany.

Of course, we hope you reveal hidden treasures in the budget but most likely you will be explaining your colleagues what is not possible and when they are behind schedule. As Business Controller you will be the one responsible for the financial planning, budgeting, analysis, and reporting. You will work in close relationship with the founders, the finance department, sales, and operations.

Here is more specific what responsibilities you will have:

1. Financial Planning and Analysis:

  • Conduct financial analysis to support strategic decision-making.

2. Financial Reporting:

  • Prepare and ensure the accuracy of monthly, quarterly, and annual financial statements.
  • Ensure compliance with accounting standards and regulatory requirements.

3. Performance Measurement:

  • Develop and monitor key performance indicators (KPIs) to assess company performance.
  • Analyze variances and trends, providing insights for improvement.

4. Cost Control:

  • Analyze cost structures and implement strategies to control and optimize costs.
  • Collaborate with department heads to identify cost-saving opportunities.

5. Risk Management:

  • Identify and assess financial risks, implementing measures to mitigate potential issues.
  • Stay informed about market trends and potential impact on the business.
  • Regularly review and update financial processes and procedures.

6. Decision Support:

  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to provide financial insights for strategic initiatives.
  • Evaluate financial implications of business decisions and provide recommendations.

7. Compliance and Audit Support:

  • Coordinate with external auditors to ensure a smooth audit process.
  • Stay current with changes in accounting regulations and ensure compliance.
