May we proudly introduce think-cell

Launched in 2002 and completely bootstrapped. A great software for presentation creation. A large and vocal user base of professionals driving our sales by word-of-mouth, leading to 10-15% annual revenue growth and ~EUR 100m annual SAAS revenue. A super-lean organization, with every recurring task automated, just 50 people and a profit margin of over 90%. Now backed by European PE powerhouse Cinven with the common vision to make think-cell even more successful than today.

So, what’s the plan?

We have tremendous growth potential by increasing think-cell users through various sales and marketing initiatives. Therefore, think-cell will grow in scale and scope, and we need to strengthen our finance set up. For that, we are looking for someone to lead, transact and further develop our accounting and consolidation processes.
