The opportunity

FAQs

 

What will I be doing as a Senior Payroll Specialist at Quantium?

 

You will be running the all elements of the day-to-day payroll process for our Americas team (currently 50 employees), be the go-to payroll expert for all of our internal and external stakeholders in the US, and take ownership of building a streamlined and successful payroll function from the ground up.  

 

This is a unique opportunity with the best of both worlds – the responsibility and stretch opportunity of being the standalone payroll expert in a growing team in the US, whilst continuing to develop and be supported by the expertise of our global payroll lead and HR team based in Sydney (we have over 800 employees globally).

Being part of a small and growing team comes with opportunities to diversify your skill set and add huge value to the success of Quantium. Whether it be in HR, Finance or perhaps helping to organize our next team social event, we are seeking team players who are willing to contribute to other areas of our company in their own unique way.

 

What is the team culture like?

 

We are a team of diverse and fun professionals working in an environment where colleagues quickly become friends. We are passionate, work hard and are always looking for new ways to learn and grow. In the office, there’s always someone around to grab a bite for lunch or to raid the snacks cupboard with. Quantium’s culture of collaboration also means that regardless of what team, level or position you’re in, your ideas will always be heard and there will be someone to help when needed.

 

How has COVID-19 affected the team’s working arrangements?

 

Currently, our team is working from home and continuing to connect with each other virtually. All interviewing and on-boarding will be done under this arrangement until it is safe to return to our offices. Currently adjusting to our new “normal” aka working remotely, we have continued to work productively and are staying connected as a team with virtual boot camps, lunches, happy hour and movie viewing parties.

What is Quantium looking for in the ideal candidate?

An Insider's view of Quantium

What's something quirky about your company?

Each year, we celebrate Quantium's birthday in style on a weekend away. Think food, drinks, games, music and a dress up party that is taken way too seriously (you’ll want to take it seriously too as there are prizes at stake). It’s known as “Quantium Day” and it is uniquely Quantium.

Kirstin Jung

Senior Recruiter

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

My team has built a robust forecasting engine for one of the biggest retailers in the world. It’s problems like this that have previously been unsolved in the industry that is so rewarding to be a part of. It’s always a fun challenge to translate real-world issues into an innovative data science solution.

What’s the vibe like in the office?

One of my favourite aspects of working at Quantium is the relaxed and jovial working atmosphere! The whole team is engaged and keen to jump into any brainstorming session or knowledge share, but also share a laugh, spin a yarn or catch up about the weekend. The combination of a challenging and friendly environment keeps me excited to come to work!
