Why You'll Love This Role:

In this newly created role reporting to our SVP Corporate Controller, the Director of Global Tax will provide critical enterprise-wide leadership and drive our global tax strategy including tax provision, tax planning and tax compliance. This leader will work closely with Go1’s accounting, finance and HR teams to support the overall financial objectives of the organization. This is a chance for you to join a scaling ed-tech company where you will not only work on the everyday stuff but be part of material projects that will help us go to the next level.

What does a Director of Global Tax do every day at Go1?

  • Lead the quarterly and annual tax reporting process, managing the collaboration with the accounting team as well as maintaining excellent relationships with external auditors
  • Ensure compliance with US, Australian and international tax laws and regulations and other domestic and international requirements
  • Actively partner with foreign operations on local tax matters (income tax, VAT, withholding tax, etc.)
  • Manage indirect tax compliance and risks, advise on employment tax
  • Lead global projects, review tax opportunities, develop forecasts and optimize tax operations
  • Continue to develop and implement transfer pricing strategy, monitor transfer pricing policies and related documentation
  • Be the technical leader on all tax accounting matters.
  • Maintain knowledge of current and proposed tax laws and analyze their impact on the Company.
  • Research technical tax matters and prepare documentation to support tax positions
  • Support strategic tax planning, identify, recommend, and implement policies, procedures and best practices
  • Champion operational excellence through process improvement and technology transformation

Why You're a Great Fit:

A slam dunk is someone with knowledge of both Australian and US tax. You will be hands on, a “one person shop” that can build a small team over time with enough experience to manage a complex tax strategy, provide strategic advice and manage complex external relationships. Implementing international strategy and having a point of view on entity structure is something is you have done before and comfortable taking charge on.

You will have:

  • Minimum of 8 years of related experience with a combination of Big 4 public accounting and industry experience
  • Proven ability to conduct thorough tax research
  • Experience and understanding of Tax Residency and Corporate Tax requirements
  • Ability to balance strategic thinking with operational leadership
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Experience in a fast moving, high growth environment with ability to react quickly to unexpected challenges and opportunities
  • Strong oral and written communication skills, with ability to communicate complex subject matter to leadership, peers and other levels in the company
  • Extremely well organized and able to manage work requirements to meet reporting deadlines

Join our team at Go1 and be at the forefront of transforming education through innovative learning solutions. Together, we can change the world. One learner at time.

While technical skills are important, it is just as important for us find people who will positively contribute to our diverse culture. We welcome you to apply, even if you don't exactly meet the criteria above.
