International Tax Analyst

Are you ready for a massive professional challenge?

Do you love learning how to build things from scratch while honing your Finance skills? Are you looking for a finance role experience that isn't like any other company? We have a team looking for exactly that kind of person.

Groupon’s mission is to become the daily habit in local commerce and fulfill our purpose of building strong communities through thriving small businesses by connecting people to a vibrant, global marketplace for local services, experiences and goods. In the process, we’re positively impacting the lives of millions of customers and merchants globally. Even with thousands of employees spread across multiple continents, we still maintain a culture that inspires innovation, rewards risk-taking and celebrates success. If you want to take more ownership of your career, then you're ready to be part of Groupon.

 

From tax to treasury and FP&A to A/P, our teams connected to Finance handle monetary complexities at a global scale in a new business category that continues to expand. As a conglomeration of number-savvy professionals who encompass multiple teams, they ensure everything from our month-end close processes to our P&L ownership and SG&A are on point. Our Tax team is responsible for the worldwide tax compliance, provision calculations, and planning for the company. We have it all – technical issues, process development, technology implementation, and communication needs to name a few. You will have access to some of the top authorities in the field as we complete each project.

 

As a Tax Analyst, you will join our dynamic Tax team based in Chicago, IL. We partner closely with internal teams to identify and analyze the innovative activities and tax implications of our various business channels as the global e-commerce and mobile markets are continuously evolving. You will take on challenging projects that impact Groupon's worldwide effective tax rate and operations. Additionally, you will work in matters ranging from tax planning and compliance, transfer pricing, and tax audit matters.

 

We're a "best of both worlds" kind of company. We're big enough to have resources and scale, but small enough that a single person has a surprising amount of autonomy and can make a meaningful impact. We're curious, fun, a little intense, and kind of obsessed with helping local businesses thrive. Does that sound like a compelling place to work? Check out our finance blog to learn more about the department.

 

You’ll spend time on the following:

  • Assist in ensuring global tax compliance

  • You will assist with transfer pricing matters

  • Assist with tax aspects of M&A transactions

  • Assist in the tax provision process, both for US GAAP and statutory accounting purposes

  • Research, analyze and document US and international tax provisions as they apply to business transactions and operations

  • You will participate in tax examinations and audits

  • Maintain the team’s tax documentation

  • Prepare written memorandums to document/support audit activity and research conclusions

  • You will use tax compliance software, like OneSource

 

We’re excited about you if you have:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Finance or Accounting

  • 1+ years of public accounting, consulting, or equivalent corporate experience a plus

  • CPA certification preferred, MST is a plus

  • You're comfortable with MS Office, with Excel being your secret favorite

  • Knowledge of tax compliance software is preferred

  • You can juggle multiple priorities, projects, and deadlines without breaking a sweat

  • You're a details person with a penchant for preparing meticulously accurate work

  • You can switch seamlessly from working independently to working as part of a team

  • You're enthusiastic, adaptable, and see challenges as an opportunity to grow

  • You thrive in an often-times ambiguous environment

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills

An Insider's view of Groupon

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Groupon provides an environment where I can strive for maximum work-life effectiveness, room for growth, and there is always something new to do. I enjoy spending lots of time at work because I love what I do; the hours are not burdensome, Groupon fits me. I define success in my own terms & Groupon provides us with the flexibility to be successful.

Milan

Senior Manager of Operations

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We are working on arriving at the optimal attribution models across different areas of our business. For example, the attribution of a purchase to a specific experience — a home page feature, an email, a push notification — likely has a different window of time where we can reasonably say a specific purchase is a result of a specific experience.

Kristi

Data Scientist

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Here at Groupon, what you do matters. I got my start at Groupon as an intern and have had the opportunity in the past (almost) 5 years to build out a global volunteer program that has engaged over 5,000 employees in over 63,000 hours of service supporting the work of close to 650 nonprofit organizations.

Alicia

Program Manager, Employee & Community Engagement

What projects are you most excited about?

Recently, we committed to having 100% of our job descriptions reviewed for gender balance by the end of 2018. Also for 2018, work will continue with our Employee Resource Groups, who play a pivotal part in the attraction and selection of diverse top talent, and themselves can be developed and promoted into company leaders.
