The Role

About the opportunity

As a Senior Tax Accountant at Mavenlink, you’ll report to our Controller to help navigate the company through the intricacies of tax responsibilities on a broad spectrum. The role provides an opportunity to flex your analytical muscles by owning projects, proactively working with jurisdictional bodies, and creatively streamlining processes that scale. 


Goals and Responsibilities

You’ll be instrumental in our financial scaling and add immediate value by owning a sales tax compliance project. Of course, the ongoing impacts of providing tax support to all levels of the company can’t be overstated. Tax reporting, tax preparation, records maintenance, and taking on special projects relating to our tax obligations and needs will all be part of your day-to-day. The keys to accomplishing success here include:

  • Preparing tax filings such as sales and use tax, UK VAT tax, property tax, business tax, business licenses and annual reports
  • Performing Nexus studies and manage the registration process in new states and jurisdictions
  • Assisting with tax audits and the implementation of solutions including the sales tax system
  • Continued research on sales and use tax for various US jurisdictions, tax compliance questions and issues, and upcoming tax amnesty programs in jurisdictions where Nexus is created to recommend solutions while weighing risk
  • Overseeing tax notices and information requests by various taxation authorities and resolving tax-related issues

Your Profile
You have a natural ability to multitask and manage numerous simultaneous priorities while demonstrating strong project management skills. High ownership of a work product excites you and dedication and commitment to driving results guides you. You’re a high-energy, independent thinker with the ability to work in a collaborative team environment and have excellent communication and analytical skills to boot. Our new Senior Tax Accountant will bring with them:

  • 3-5 years’ experience in sales & use tax, property tax, and other business tax
  • A bachelor’s degree in accounting or finance
  • Proficiency in tax industry systems and other reporting tools including, but not limited to, Avalara AvaTax, NetSuite, and Excel
  • A demonstrated ability to work well in high-pressure situations in order to meet deadlines
  • General knowledge of GAAP accounting standards

Bonus points if you have:

  • Experience working in technology and/or software industry
  • A CPA certification or on-track to obtain CPA license
  • Maintained tax compliance for a multi-jurisdictional company

Our Philosophy
Working for a successful late-stage startup is a lifestyle choice rather than a job choice.  We believe every company can be successful with the right technology and when people are at the core.  We believe that we’re better together - that working hand-in-hand brings the best thoughts to the table and creates an environment of learning and growth.  Here, you’ll enjoy:

  • An intentionally engaging culture - ditch the silo!
  • Competitive pay and benefit options
  • Strong work-life balance as a focus of the company
  • The chance to learn from some of the best people in the business, including the company’s founders
  • A vibrant, collaborative and devoted team, who still makes time for fun
  • Snacks? Check. Drinks? Check. Game nights? Check!

At Mavenlink, we strive to create an inclusive workplace that upholds the dignity of all people. We value, respect, and celebrate everyone’s unique strengths from all different walks of life. As we continue to cultivate diversity within Mavenlink, our product (and people!) innovation continues to flourish.
