Accountant - Paternity leave 6 months

Everyone loves receiving packages. Our mission is to make shipping easy and transparent for people and businesses throughout the world!
Packlink is an online shipping service offering individuals and business customers a fast and easy way of booking parcel deliveries with the world's top couriers. Packlink is based in Madrid but operates across Europe. Our aim is to become the leading provider of shipping technology for consumers and eCommerce merchants selling online.
The service first launched in Spain in 2012, making headlines and partnering with major national and international couriers by integrating with their booking and parcel tracking systems. Packlink currently serves over  215k  business customers and has integrated its platform with the leading eCommerce platforms and marketplaces.
We are a marketing and technology company, built on talent and teamwork. We believe in a dynamic, motivating startup environment and great company culture centered on innovation, outstanding customer service, and a happy team.

Our passion for getting shipping right led us to develop a platform that uses cutting-edge technology. Our solution is based on a microservice and event-oriented architecture using Scala (with a little bit of Java here and there) for a sturdy backend, and ReactJs for a fancy frontend to catch our customers' attention. We use contract & resilience testing to prevent any issues that could impact UX. All of this, combined with our DevOps mentality, allows us to develop high-end software. 

This time we are looking for a talented, highly motivated and experienced Accountant to cover a paternity leave in our headquarters in Madrid.
