Position Overview:

As the International Payroll Manager your focus will be on two main areas: (1) all transactional components related to the processing of payroll across multiple geographies (except for North America), and (2) strategic inputs, recommendations, and implementation of future payroll related tools/providers, processes, and entity expansion. Your work in these areas will be end to end, from transactional/strategic inputs through to the recording of the payroll in our books or the implementation of tools and processes. This is an individual contributor role with the potential to expand to a people manager role as the Company continues on its impressive growth trajectory.

This 100% remote position will report directly to our Senior Manager of Accounting while also working closely with our VP, Global Controller. This is a very key and foundational addition to an accounting team that is being built from the ground up. Leverage your prior experiences and build things the right way in a very fast paced growth-phase SaaS startup!


  • Ensure the accuracy and completeness of all payroll processing events across all non-North America geographies (currently two geos, with at least two more coming online shortly). This includes both regular and variable compensation as well as processing of all third-party consulting resources
  • Oversee all federal and local payroll filing requirements
  • Work closely with our People Team to ensure changes in compensation are appropriately captured and provide input to our ongoing HRIS implementation
  • Establish strong relationships with our third-party processing provider for all non-US payroll
  • Be a key participant in the organization's future processing tool platform selection and implementation
  • Own certain month-end close activities including reviewing/posting payroll related journal entries, owning certain balance sheet reconciliations (namely bonus accrual and capitalized commissions), and preparing certain financial statement analytics
  • Assist in the stabilization of NetSuite where applicable, and work closely with our financial systems manager on data migration, testing and training
  • Participate in our global entity expansion and provide strategic inputs on its scalability
  • Assist in the annual audit process including evidence gathering for external auditors and the group accounting department
  • Identify and drive process improvement with a focus on future scalability


  • Bachelor's degree in accounting or a related discipline
  • 6-8 years of relevant experience, with a mix of big company and start-up work preferable
  • SaaS and startup experience a plus
  • High degree of accuracy and attention to detail
  • Strong problem-solving skills
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team in a remote first environment
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills, with the ability to effectively communicate cross-functionally at all levels in an efficient manner
  • Highly motivated with the ability to work in a rapidly changing global and remote environment
  • Advanced Microsoft Excel
