Title : US Sales Tax Analyst

Location : Philippines (REMOTE WFH)

Shift : Late Shift (6PM-3AM PH time)

About The Role :

Our team is looking for a Sales Tax Analyst to join our onboarding team. At our company, we are fanatical about our clients having an incredible impression working with us.

And if you join us, you’ll be a big part of the reason why.

Internally, we refer to this role as an Existing Client Onboarding Manager. The purpose of the Existing Client Onboarding Manager is to serve as the principal contact for existing client accounts in the following areas : annual nexus reviews, application for new permits, permit closure requests, offboarding, tax settings, new sales channels.

At a glance, you’ll be responsible for organizing transaction data, compiling nexus information (with supervision), updating tax software, broadly overseeing the sales tax permit application process, and communicating effectively with your clients.

You will work directly with clients to help address any new needs or concerns that arise, and ensure your clients are having a wonderful time working with you.

In time, you’ll be considered a sales tax expert and someone that many will turn to when looking for advice. We are looking for more than just a traditional accountant.

We are looking for someone who is a little bit more on the outgoing and social side and would feel comfortable researching and then explaining (in simple terms) that information to clients - in English!

Don’t worry we’ll provide lots of training and help along the way. Your attitude and potential is much more important than your current knowledge and experience.

Since this role is 100% remote working from home, this requires having high-speed and reliable home internet.
