Upon hiring






We are Vinokilo.

We are a growing team on a mission to make secondhand fashion more desirable than new, fast fashion. Why? Because we believe fashion should be stylish and sustainable. We are based in Bodenheim, a beautiful town in the middle of wine country, 12 km south of downtown Mainz on the edge of the Frankfurt Rhine-Main Region. Our proximity to the airport and our central European location makes us open to the world.


As Accountant, you will join our Finance Team to help us build the biggest vintage kilo sales in the world. This may seem like a wild statement, but it's more realistic with you on board because: 

  • You book all business transactions.
  • You control the completion of receipts.
  • You provide end of month reports in cooperation with Tax consultants.
  • You are the point of contact for tax consultants. 
  • You control outbound invoices and payments.
  • You maintain and improve the bookkeeping system and the bookkeeping accounts used.
  • You maintain inventory accounts and depreciation accounts.
  • You maintain the bank accounts and conduct transactions.
  • You provide, inform and discuss monthly reports with CFO & CEO.
  • You also have other accounting responsibilities.


  • You take a leading role in the fight against fast fashion.
  • You are enthusiastic about sustainability and secondhand fashion. 
  • Your work is significant and challenging and has a noticeable impact on the future of Vinokilo.
  • You can set up processes independently.
  • You can work with a diverse team that, like you, wants to change something and works to achieve this together.
  • You value long-term profitability and sustainability rather than short-term profits. 
  • There is plenty of room for growth, for the company and role.
  • You like to take responsibility and calculate risks.
  • We are in one of the most stunning areas with the beautiful countryside on our doorstep, yet a short hop, skip and a jump away from Mainz, and the hustle and bustle of Frankfurt and its International airport. 
  • We believe in working flexibly and putting the onus on you to create a schedule that works for you and the company. 


  • University degree in business / finance / accounting  ( Or equivalent with major financial accounting)
  • Work experience as accountant min. 3 years
  • accounting certifications or licenses may be required
  • Commitment to working efficiently and accurately
  • Good interpersonal, time management and problem-solving skills
  • Proficiency with computers, especially Datev software
  • Very good MS office Skills

NB: We know lots of people, especially women and minorities, do not apply for roles unless they hit all the requirements listed in the Job descriptions — these are normally wish lists. Either way, if you feel this is your perfect role, we want to hear from you.
