Tax Manager


At Picnic, we’re revolutionizing the way people buy groceries with our innovative and sustainable app-only service. We do almost everything in-house, developing cutting-edge technologies and processes to ensure we continue to grow rapidly without missing a beat. If you are passionate about Tax, we’re offering you the opportunity to join the diverse team at our German office in Düsseldorf and make a real difference in our scaleup environment.

🥜 In a nutshell

We're looking for a Tax Manager who can manage the day-to-day Tax matters for Germany, with the main focus on, but not limited to, VAT. You will report into the Tax Lead (based in Amsterdam) and you will manage all tax matters in Germany and coordinate with advisers where needed, together with the colleagues from the broader finance organisation, the legal department and the ‘operational side’ of the business. The main focus will be on VAT, including training of the team, but you will also be responsible for bringing the tax control framework to the next level and support the Tax Lead on various other tax matters, such as transfer pricing, global mobility and many other things. No specific experience is needed on these topics, as long as you are willing to learn and are enthusiastic to take on new things!

Besides managing the German tax matters of our rapidly expanding business, you will also be involved in bringing our VAT controls in other countries to the next level (for now, France and the Netherlands). You will make sure that the relevant teams and colleagues are kept up to date on any regulatory changes, take ownership and you will be ‘the tax contact’ with regard to the various new business initiatives, and you will engage/manage external advisers and stakeholders where needed.

🎯 What you’ll do

  • Take ownership of German and International VAT matters
  • Take ownership in bringing our tax control framework in Germany to the next level, where possible by further automating and optimizing our ERP system
  • Support on other general German tax matters, such as transfer pricing and reviewing of corporate tax returns (prepared externally)
  • Be the local tax contact person both internally and externally (suppliers, Finanzamt)
  • Educate and train the broader Picnic organization on relevant tax developments
  • Show a hands-on mentality in our daily finance operations
  • Be a good team player and do not shy away from supporting non-tax related projects

⭐ About you

  • 4-6 years of experience in a similar role. A combination of advisory and in-house would be a big plus, as well as exposure to other tax frameworks such as NL, FR or other EUR taxes.
  • Strong interpersonal skills
  • Structured and accurate
  • Pragmatic mindset, without compromising on compliance
  • Interest in Tech-integration & Tech-solutions
  • Fluency in German and English, both verbal and written, another language such as French or Dutch would be a plus.
  • ERP-system knowledge such as Workday, NetSuite or Microsoft Dynamics is a plus
  • Willingness to work from the office in Düsseldorf at least 2 days a week (alternatively, based in Amsterdam or relocation to Amsterdam negotiable)

🏅 Your benefits

  • Join a fast-growing business with significant upward potential and career growth
  • Engage with talented Picnic'ers with a lot of international exposure
  • Embrace the Picnic culture of wonderful free breakfasts and lunches, memorable parties featuring the renowned Picnic band and even a company ski trip
