Student Assistant, Business Development Finance at Milestone Systems

Expires in 5 days

If you are at your graduate studies within e.g., finance or business and you are looking for a student job that can give you far more than just a pay check, this is it. Milestone is a Danish founded software company. Throughout the last 20 years we have grown to become a leading, global provider of video management systems used for e.g., security at big events like the Champions League final.

Today we are +1,000 employees with headquarters in Copenhagen and development centres in e.g., Barcelona and Sofia. Business Development, Finance was established as a new functional area in December 2020, with reference to the CFO. Today the area counts 1 person and is run out of our headquarters.

The overall responsibility of the area is to support and drive key strategic initiatives from scoping to execution. The projects typically vary in size and character but are all related to development and/or growing the business and carry a finance aspect. It could be M&A activities, such as acquisitions of companies, new technologies or licenses.

Business Development, Finance is part of an ambitious Business Support team, including approximately 60 employees within Finance, Legal and Performance Management.

And by the way. Milestone is a fantastic workplace where the saying “people first” is basic DNA, not just another fancy wall poster.
