  • Prepare payroll reports for team leads as needed

Within three months, you’ll

  • Define the strategy for scalable payroll function and lead payroll transformation activities to harmonize payroll processes, enhance automation and implement new systems or vendors (as appropriate)
  • Help with new market set up and ensure payroll in compliance with country specific laws and regulations
  • Operate with a continuous improvement mindset to constantly streamline as we grow 
  • Maintain and update documentation of payroll process and procedures; perform audits to ensure data integrity across HRIS, payroll systems, and accounting activities
What You'll Bring 
  • 6+ years of accounting and finance experience.
  • Proactive, attention to detail and solid auditing skills
