Copenhagen

Every month 700,000 new reviews are posted on Trustpilot for one of the thousands of businesses on our review community. It’s no exaggeration to say that we’re growing at lightning speed. Every single day Trustpilot helps consumers choose with confidence while enabling companies to grow their businesses. Behind our global success is a passionate, international team working in a fast-paced, fun, vibrant environment. Does this sound like your kind of workplace?

Accounting & Tax is a shared service center function for the 5 group companies (DK, UK, DE, US and AU). While most of us sit in Copenhagen we have a close collaboration with employees and managers across the 6 offices globally and especially with team FP&A and the CFO who is situated in New York.

To support Trustpilot’s rapid expansion, we’re looking for a dedicated finance professional to help grow the team, scale and mature our operations and increase reporting quality.
