Interim Financial Accountant (f/m/x)
Berlin, Berlin, GermanyManagement
In the last few years, traveling has, unfortunately, become too stressful, too complex, too inconvenient, and too time-consuming. And although everyone in the industry is working very hard to improve the passenger experience - much more can be done!
Traveling and retailing should be seamless, simple, transparent, fast, and convenient. And digital. Here is where Duffle comes in.
The timing could not be better to emerge as a category winner: the global pandemic has accelerated the demand for a better and renewed approach to global travel retail, and as the world begins to open again, pent-up demand for travel and travel-related retail is set to boom as brands, retailers, airports, and airlines are doubling down their efforts to make up for lost sales.
