International Financial Controller (m/w/d)
Who we are
Innovatise is the developer of myFitApp, the number 1 mobile marketing app solution for gyms and leisure centres. Over 2,300 sites in the UK, Europe and the Middle East use our branded member apps to retain members, acquire new ones, communicate their brand and deliver digital fitness using the unique power of mobile. Over 10 million of their customers have downloaded our apps on their phone and we’re sending over 20 million notifications to them per month. Our @home live-streaming and on demand platform has been keeping gym members fit and engaged during the pandemic and we’ve streamed over 2 million workouts.. Our business is 10 years old, growing and profitable, we’ve grew 2x during 2021 and we recently became part of a major US software group ClubEssential Holdings.
We are a team of “athletes not specialists” – we’re looking for those who are generally smart, intellectually curious, quick on their feet, learn quickly, are great communicators and have DNA for drive/initiative.
We work in small teams with really big ambitions, both for what we want to achieve and also the environment we work in. We want our company to remain thoughtful as we scale and try to be genuinely progressive in how we operate. We want people to really own what they do and be given the autonomy and freedom to make mistakes, learn, and create something meaningful. We all work incredibly hard because we really care about what Innovatise is here to do – we’re looking for exceptional people who are proactive, hungry to learn and take pride in their contribution to our collective achievements.
