Scroll to content

At Happy Socks we have made it our mission to spread happiness everywhere, and you only have to spend a few minutes with us to realize how seriously we take it! In fact, our fun, positive approach is probably the reason we’ve seen such amazing growth over the past couple of years. Our products are spreading happiness in over 90 countries and we have a turnover around 800 Mkr.

We are now looking for an analytical and driven Business Controller who enjoys responsibility from day one and a broad range of questions; from solving day to day issues within the team to working strategically with the management. Joining Happy Socks means being a part of a happy and extremely fast-moving multicultural company of around 180 people from 25 different countries 🌍. You’ll be a key member of our Finance department of 16 people and this role is based in our HQ in Stockholm. The majority of your team is also based in HQ, with a few colleagues in Germany and the US, which are our two biggest markets. 

As a Business Controller you’ll conduct high qualitative business and financial analyses - both for commercial and strategic operations. You’ll work closely with parts of our management group and have a lot of contact with various functions of the business. You need to have a good understanding of the company’s processes and what data the management group and owners (private equity company) need to determine business performance and set the strategic direction of Happy Socks. You’ll report to our Head of Business Control. 

Tasks & Responsibilities 

  • Monthly reporting (both historical data and forecasts)
  • Cost and investment analysis, as well as other ad hoc analyses
  • Being a business partner in strategic projects and expansion plans 
  • Continuously work on improving the finance related processes and tools to make sure relevance and efficiency is as high as possible
  • Being part of the development of BI within your area of expertise 

Requirements & Skills 

  • Bachelor degree in Business Administration or Economics (but preferably a masters degree!)
  • 3+ years of experience from similar work, either as a Business Controller or from an accounting firm
  • Fluency in Swedish & English
  • Excellent knowledge of Excel 
  • Knowledge within e-com and/or retail is a big plus! 

You are an analytical master with a sense of urgency, who loves to roll up your sleeves and have an entrepreneurial “do-it-yourself” attitude. You enjoy working in a fast-paced and global company. You are meticulous and have an eye for details but are at the same time able to see the bigger picture. 

We would love to hear from you as soon as possible since we’re going through applications continuously! 

Or, know someone who would be a perfect fit? Let them know!
