At Trengo, we believe in a world where technology empowers the relationship between companies and their customers. That’s why our mission is to build the smartest customer engagement platform to replace repetitive work with meaningful conversations. How do we do that? Our software makes it easy for customer-facing teams to communicate with customers via multiple channels, all in one shared inbox. Email, Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp, live-chat, you name it. With a Series A investment of $36M led by Insight Partners and Peak Capital and becoming one of the four official WhatsApp Business Solutions Providers in the Netherlands, we empower our customers to scale their businesses and optimize the channels their clients truly prefer.

Imagine what that means for us! Trengo is in such an exciting stage and we need to embrace this amazing opportunity by bringing the way we make decisions to the next level through data. As our FP&A Controller, you have the possibility to see Trengo enhance efficiency thanks to your contribution. With your analytical eye, you will be able to make a strong impact by supporting and advising our management team on strategic topics that will help us improve the overall performance in the future.

When you meet anyone who works at Trengo, you'll most likely find them excited about continuous improvements, empowered to add their own touch to the world of online communication, and eager to collaborate with diverse people on a daily basis. So, Helene (VP Finance) and the rest of the finance team are waiting for you!
