Job description


At Bene Bono, your grocery shopping makes a difference!

Bene Bono offers environmentally & socially shopping with prices up to 40% lower.

In concrete terms, we provide a weekly selection of top-quality products directly saved from waste at discounted prices.

By shopping with Bene Bono, you:

  • Support producers and manufacturers in upgrading their products,
  • Take control of your consumption by actively participating in waste reduction efforts,
  • Save money without compromising the quality of your groceries.



  • 200% saved from waste: products directly sourced from producers and manufacturers that would have otherwise gone unsold due to arbitrary distribution standards (size, shape, color, overproduction, etc.),
  • 100% top quality: all our products adhere to our rigorous quality policy (taste, freshness, no harmful or controversial ingredients, ethical sourcing, no heated greenhouses for fruits and vegetables, etc.), including organic and locally sourced fruits and vegetables,
  • 100% flexibility: subscription with no commitment (we're not like Free, but we understand), weekly deliveries, easy skip option for when you're away or unable to receive the delivery.

Today, we have already saved over 2600 tons of products, thanks to 23,000 satisfied customers. Tomorrow, we aim to save thousands of tons of products and deliver them across Europe!

As a fast-growing startup (with millions in ARR), we are focused on our mission and have the ambition to build an exceptional team in France and abroad (currently in Spain, but throughout Europe in the future). We already have more than 80 team members, called "Benies," and we continue to hire to support our growth. It's the perfect place to enjoy working as a team, have rapid career growth opportunities, and make a significant impact on the environment. 



    💕 A few words about our values, which are deeply important to us at Bene Bono.

    Save what's good: We fight against waste for the benefit of producers, consumers, and the planet.

    Save tons:
    To tackle this issue on a large scale, we aim to become Europeans' go-to choice for high-quality, affordable products.

    Better every day:
    We constantly question and improve our ideas and practices.

    Value time:
    We optimize our most precious resource—our time—to maximize our impact.

    Feel safe:
    Together, we create a nurturing environment where everyone feels comfortable and can grow.



    We're on the lookout for an amazing Senior Finance Manager to join the Bene Bono team, aimed at reinforcing our finance team and preparing us for an exciting future of growth towards a 100M€ revenue goal. This role is designed to work closely with our CFO, Thomas (since 10/2022), and our Finance Officer, Alaeddine (since 02/2023), providing a unique opportunity to shape the future of Bene Bono's finance function on its path to profitability.

    The key responsibilities of the role includes:

    • Monthly Closing: Take charge of producing and refining our monthly accounting reports for both our French and Spanish entities, including comprehensive P&L, balance sheet, and cash flow statements.
    • Yearly Closing: Collaborate with our accountants to generate consolidated financial accounts and oversee the annual audit process with our auditors.
    • Finance Ops & Processes: Ensure our processes (such as expense validation, cash flow management, and management reporting) and our toolkit (currently Pennylane, Spendesk, Pivot, Odoo) are optimally configured to support Bene Bono's growth trajectory.
    • Financial Planning: Develop quarterly budgets and take ownership of our 5-year Business Plan.
    • Performance Controlling: Analyze monthly performance against budget, identify discrepancies, and communicate findings in operational terms. Prepare materials for investors and board members.
    • Financing: Engage in upcoming financing activities, including fundraising, securing non-dilutive instruments, and arranging working capital financing.

     Additionally, a valid residence permit allowing work in France is a necessary requirement.



    We're looking for someone with a minimum of 4 years of hands-on experience supporting teams in a fast-paced environment.

    We expect a deep-rooted understanding and practical experience with the three crucial financial statements: the Profit & Loss statement, Balance Sheet, and Cash Flow statement. This knowledge should extend beyond mere familiarity, providing you with a comprehensive ability to both prepare and analyze these documents with precision. 

    Your proficiency with Excel or Gsheet should enable you to manipulate data swiftly and accurately, ensuring integrity and reliability in your work.

    But it's not all about the numbers ! 

    You're meticulous in your work because you know the devil's in the details. You've got a knack for spotting trends, gaps or patterns making complex issues seem like a walk in the park. 

    Your business intuition is top-notch, helping you see beyond the numbers to what really matters. 

    And when it comes to navigating the exciting world of a fast-growing company, you're as savvy as they come, ready to lead the charge in shaping new processes and tackling challenges head-on.

      We value diverse profiles at Bene Bono! We take great pleasure in welcoming individuals with unconventional backgrounds, rich stories, and multiple life experiences. So, don't hesitate to send us your application!
