Chief Financial Officer (CFO) (M/F/X) at Medbelle


Chief Financial Officer (CFO) (M/F/X)

Full-Time in Berlin, DE - Executive - Finance

My name is Leander and I am one of the co-founders here at Medbelle, where it is our mission to build the first digital hospital.

First of all, let me tell you what Medbelle is all about.

As the first digital hospital, we are rebuilding the patient experience for elective medical procedures from scratch (started with cosmetic, bariatric and eye surgery and now also orthopaedic). We work with the best surgeons and rent operating space from selected facilities - while providing an outstanding, digital-first and transparent patient experience and a personal patient care adviser to guide our patients from start to finish. This is what allows us to provide patients with a stellar level of care that we would love to experience ourselves. By also providing technology that integrates the entire patient journey for providers, we can reduce costs, make their lives much easier and, therefore, improve elective procedures across the quadruple aim: better outcomes, better patient experience, lower costs, better provider experience.

Your role includes three responsibility areas:

  • Operational Finance
    • Management and growth of the finance team and all of its processes
    • Ownership and management of budgeting & cost analyses, financial statements, intercompany transfer pricing, cash management & liquidity planning
    • Coordination of all external advisors (i.e. tax advisors and lawyers) with regards to tax- or legal-related matters
  • Strategic Support
    • Active involvement in Medbelle´s strategy development and company steering together with the top management team with a company-wide view on the entire business
    • Projection and modelling and hands-on support of Medbelle´s strategic and operational performance
  • Investor Relations
    • Management of the communication with investors and preparation of all necessary documents for respective meetings
    • Active involvement in acquiring the capital needed for growth and support the founders throughout upcoming funding rounds

Your profile

  • You have an advanced degree in accounting, business, finance, or a related field; an MBA or CPA is also highly desirable or equivalent qualification
  • You bring along experience in high-performance organisations (e.g. M&A) and high growth companies
  • You have excellent analytical skills, love working with numbers, use basic statistics to inform your decisions on a regular basis and have proficient knowledge with common tools
  • You have a strong digital affinity and have digitised finance processes before
  • You have a good understanding of Venture Capital, having raised larger VC rounds and managed VC shareholders is a plus
  • You have a highly cooperative leadership style and contribute to a productive and positive work environment
  • Excellent English and good German skills
  • Industry expertise in healthcare, especially hospitals, is a plus
  • A very structured approach to tackling problems
  • Cooperative leadership and communication style and passion to improve healthcare together with a team of visionaries (cultural fit is highly important to us)

What the Medbelle family is like

Our Medbelle family is a small and truly international team (80%+ internationals). We pride ourselves on our company culture that’s focused on building a great service with a professional emphasis on numbers and growth.

As a typical Berlin startup, we, of course, have the usual fun stuff: free coffee & British tea, fruits, pancake Tuesdays, an amazing office in Kreuzberg, Friday memes and team events we probably shouldn’t talk about here. But what I love most about our team is the honest desire to help improve the experiences of our patients - that’s what keeps us motivated and driven.

As an essential part of the management team, you can leave your mark on the digital hospital and how we will look at medical procedures in the future
