Application Support Engineer Finance




Software Development



Most order-to-cash processes are firmly rooted in the nineties
At Raet our love for them is mostly nostalgic at this point

Let’s get one thing clear: Raet develops cutting-edge eHRM suites. We have company barbecues in the cloud and are this close to releasing an API for the platform that lets public organizations futureproof their HR-policies. But when you extract the DNA of our internal order to cash platform, you’ll discover it’s the love child of Madonna and Michael Jackson. That’ll change soon though, since we’re transitioning to proprietary software. That means we offer Application Support Engineers a great opportunity to rewire our financial motor. In tandem with the business. And with a focus on simplification, consolidation and data visualization.

What will you do?
Participate in challenging projects that propel our corporate finance, controlling and reporting processes into the now or (if possible) the near future. Since these are mission-critical systems – without streamlined procurement, invoicing, auditing and control processes the order to cash machine grinds to a halt – you have to assure existing applications keep doing what they’re supposed to do. Downtime is not an option! What makes this even more challenging, is the breadth of our ambition: we want to fully deliver upon BI promises, so that our financial experts can make better-informed decisions. 

Any travel buddies?
Absolutely! You’ll join an autonomous Scrum team – one of 40+ we deploy – that’s dedicated to elevating our finance solutions. You’ll work closely with Data/Business Analysts and Solution Engineers within the team. Business contact is also a given, because we expect you to actively support end users, e.g. by troubleshooting application/data warehousing issues, configuring applications to meet evolving demands, coordinating releases, and to guide stakeholders through UAT’s. We also invite you to liaise with nearshoring IT partners.

Who would we welcome aboard?
An Application Support Engineer with accounting software knowledge. Whether you started out in IT and landed a job in corporate finance or wanted to take the financial world by storm, but ‘somehow’ ended up as the key/super user, doesn’t matter. What does matter, is that you feel at home in finance applications (ERP, invoicing, procurement, control, et all). We’re ideally looking for Power BI experience, but if you know Oracle and Exact inside and out, that works too. Professional credentials aside, we’d appreciate it if you had a client-centered approach, but aren’t afraid to challenge those same clients. Because, you know, sometimes demands simply can’t be immediately met.

Your tech/application stack
As a minimum, a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science or Information Technology Engineering or equivalent work experience
A minimum of 3 years’ experience in Corporate finance applications
Experience in financial reporting tooling (e.g. Power BI, Exact, Oracle)
Analysis skills in Excel
Experience with XML, SharePoint, ERP and CRM (or the eagerness to learn these skills on the job rapidly)

Where, what and why?
Raet is located in Amersfoort. Here, you’ll meet most of your new colleagues, including 300 IT professionals. At Raet, we work hard, but we don’t believe a competitive culture nets the best results, so the atmosphere is open, inviting and collaborative. As you might expect from an HR-solutions specialist, we offer a benefits package that is a cut above the rest, and not only includes a fair salary and ample opportunities for personal and professional growth, but also flexible work arrangements. Of note: you’ll work in an international setting, where English is the preferred language. Als je dit kunt lezen, is dat natuurlijk wel mooi meegenomen
