  • Work with the finance teams and external advisors to ensure that Hotjar subsidiaries’ VAT returns are submitted;

  • From time to time, work with other Hotjar teams and external advisors to understand the tax and social implications of registering as an employer for the first time in new countries;

  • Completion of quarterly and annual tax schedules for Hotjar’s ultimate parent company for financial reporting purposes, including deferred tax.

Requirements

  • Excellent understanding of the principles of both direct and indirect taxes (detailed knowledge of individual countries’ tax requirements is not expected).

  • Good understanding of basic accounting principles and practices

  • Experience working with external advisors to manage tax requirements and advice;

  • Desire to work in a respectful, transparent, and collaborative work environment, following Hotjar’s company values, culture and ways of working.

  • Must submit to a background check confidentially processed by our third-party.
