About Bob W

Bob W is a fast-growing aparthotel brand providing an authentic 5-star experience to every single guest at scale while leading the world’s transition to sustainable hospitality.

Bob’s apartments cater to the 21st-century traveller who wants it all: the consistent quality of a hotel and the authentic flair of a short-stay rental. We combine the best of both worlds in our climate-neutral apartments in the coolest neighbourhoods across Europe. As we expand fuelled by venture capital and investment from top-tier real estate equity firms, we are building the technology to give every guest a local, five-star experience at scale.

    • Prepare and present financial reports, highlighting key financial metrics and trends.
    • Ensure compliance with accounting standards and regulations.
  • Collaboration, Relationship Building, and Cost Management:
    • Cultivate strong relationships with department heads and operational teams, acting as a trusted financial advisor and supporting cost management efforts.
  • Project Evaluation, Training, and Development:
    • Evaluate project viability, providing financial insights and aligning goals with business objectives.
    • Offer financial training to non-finance teams and support operations managers with on-site training to ensure reporting standards compliance.

A 5-star candidate has:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Finance, Accounting, or a related field. Advanced degree or professional certification is a plus.
  • 5+ years of experience as a Finance Business Partner or in a similar role.
  • Strong financial analysis, modelling, and reporting skills.

  • Experience with Italian, Greek, and Spanish accounting regulation.
  • Fluency in English and ideally one Southern European language, preferably Italian or Greek.
  • Hospitality / real estate industry experience is a strong plus.

What we offer:

  • The opportunity to re-invent the world’s largest industry by shaping a young and dynamic tech company with huge growth ambitions.
  • Voluntary health insurance and sports compensation with Stebby.
