[As of June 2020, Quora has become a "remote-first" company. This position can be performed remotely from anywhere in the United States, regardless of any location that might be specified above.]

About Quora:

The vast majority of human knowledge is still not on the internet. Most of it is trapped in the form of experience in people's heads, or buried in books and papers that only experts can access. More than a billion people use the internet, yet only a tiny fraction contribute their knowledge to it. We want to democratize access to knowledge of all kinds — from politics to painting, cooking to coding, etymology to experiences — so if someone out there knows something, anyone else can learn it. Our mission is to share and grow the world's knowledge, and we're building a world-class team to help us achieve this mission.

About the Team:

The Finance and Operations team ensures that Quora maintains a healthy, fun, and productive foundation from which the broader company can work together to achieve our mission. In FinOps, we support this by staying nimble and efficient, simplifying complexity, and working hard to preserve the best things about working at Quora as we scale. We seek a balance between being strategic and operational while learning quickly from the past, then focusing on what it means for our future barriers.

About the Role:

We are looking for a tax expert to help with income tax and other compliance areas with the growing company. The Tax Manager we seek should have experience working in a fast-paced environment with a problem-solving mindset. This is a role for someone who is seeking experience in different tax areas.
We take our work seriously while having lots of fun along the way. If this resonates with you, come join our team!

  • Prepare income tax reporting function, including both domestic and international tax provisions, and work with external auditors.
  • Facilitate and manage the preparation of company federal, state, and international tax returns and the accurate, timely filing of all tax forms.

  • Develop & maintain effective control procedures over all aspects of the tax process.
  • Assist in special projects including, but not limited to, indirect tax engine implementation, analysis of income tax consequences of non-standard transactions, tax studies (e.g. R&D credit, tax attribute limitations), equity reconciliation, and cross-functional business initiatives.
  • Support Remote First initiative by completing relevant US multistate and international country registrations with outside vendors, as well as researching and drafting policies.
