  • Corporate tax governance: Manage quarterly Wayfair sales tax testing and the associated sales tax registrations. Ensure franchise, gross receipts, and business licenses are filed timely in coordination with our registered agent. Manage nexus jurisdiction setup in Avalara, and vet all tax notices for appropriate handling
  • Drive process improvement, implementing the Paylocity interface/API with Intacct.
  • Evolve into an Intacct super user, maintaining the GL account and department structure and financial report templates

  • Solutions-oriented problem-solver; can take ownership of tasks and drive them to completion
  • Systems experience with cloud-based applications such as Intacct, Avalara, Paylocity, Bill.com, Expensify, and Salesforce

Bonus Points:

  • Experience with U.S. GAAP and IFRS accounting standards; have also participated in audit readiness
