Who We Are:
At Wagepoint, we’re good people. Sure, maybe we’re biased. But that’s only because Wagepointers bring the best versions of ourselves to do some of the best work in our careers.
We’re an authentic team who bring our diverse backgrounds, ideas, experiences and cultures together to make payroll magic. Speaking of, we “pull rabbits out of hats” for thousands of small business owners across the US and Canada who rely on our payroll software to pay their employees and process their payroll taxes. And we’re just getting started.
We’re growing and looking for more awesome people to join our merry band of misfits. We are looking for people who share our understanding that when it comes to our commitment to our customers: we mean business. Especially given that the consequences of getting payroll wrong can sometimes be dire.
If you are the kind of person who has always wanted to make a difference and be heard at work, Wagepoint will give you plenty of opportunities to do just that.
The Role at High Level:
We’re looking for a talented Payroll Compliance Specialist who doesn’t shy away from tackling hard problems and interesting (well, most times) subjects like payroll and HR technology. This role is responsible for ensuring that all the calculations in the system are accurate as per government regulations and that includes testing, writing requirements and keeping up to date on changes to payroll legislation.You will report directly to our Chief Product Officer.
What you’ll be doing:
Responsible for the payroll ‘math’ in the system i.e. ensuring that payroll is accurate as per the CRA and Revenu Quebec guidelines for Federal and provincial taxes
Responsible for double-checking changes to Federal, State and Local taxes in the US
Keeping up to date with tax updates in both US and Canada
Researching correct application of taxes for incomes, benefits and deductions
Performing QA functions as it relates to testing the ‘math’ in the system or for any new releases
Works with members of the product team to provide or update requirements to the engineering team
Works with payroll associations in both Canada and US for research and for better understanding tax consequences
What you bring to the table:
PCP or CPM designation
5-10 years of payroll experience (Canadian and/ or US)
What we bring to the table:
The opportunity to work with the world’s friendliest team, solving interesting problems together.
The ability to work from home, forever! Wagepoint is a remote company, so you don’t have to worry about commuting to an office. Plus, more time with your pets is always a bonus!
An autonomous work environment – we’re a growing startup, so we’ll be looking to you to roll up your sleeves and dive right in! No red tape, just bring your great ideas and your powerful work ethic.
An endless amount of laughter — we don’t take ourselves too seriously. We work hard, but we always have time for a bad joke or two.
If all the above feels right and proper, please don’t feel like you need to send us an uninspired cover letter. Just send us your updated resume and perhaps a few lines on what excites you about the job – we really want to get to know who you are, not just about how we can work together. If we believe you’re a good match, someone from our team will reach out to schedule a call.
