Accountant & Payroll Associate

Payroll Function

Superside is looking for a committed, data-driven Accountant & Payroll Associate to join our fast-scaling entity and growing Finance department. As a valuable core team member, you’ll support operational objectives through monthly payroll calculations and reporting.

Reporting to the Finance Manager, the Accountant & Payroll Associate will play an integral part in Superside’s payroll function.

You’ll be involved in certain operational aspects of payroll payment allocations, working with different systems and calculating various payment schemes. This means you will have a lot of exposure and opportunities to learn and grow within the role.

What you'll be doing

  • Perform monthly payroll model and department allocations transactions
  • Communicate with the People Team regarding staff members
  • Maintain the Payroll Database, prepare KPI Data and work on Ad Hoc Finance projects
  • Assist with month-end close procedures, payments allocations, bank reconciliation, and journal preparation
  • Update and maintain hiring plans for hiring managers
  • Maintain effective financial controls and reporting structures
  • Contribute to the daily functioning of the finance team and its performance
  • Act as the first point of contact for all payroll-related inquiries from other departments

Our biggest challenges right now

We are a rapidly-growing entity operating in a fast-paced environment. We don't have a structured, automated system and we're still building and improving our processes. On top of that, we’ve recently started implementing the Netsuite accounting platform. This means we have a significant volume of data and we don’t have all the answers. This is why we need someone willing to be out of their comfort zone, learn various financial tools and reports, and stay committed to where we want to go.


What you’ll need to succeed

  • Newly qualified CA or equivalent finance qualification
  • Experience with Excel, GoogleSheet and advanced formulae
  • Experience preparing and posting journal entries & supporting monthly financial reporting processes
  • Experience executing payroll advantages
  • Ability to work within a team in a remote working environment
  • Confidence in communicating new skills and procedures to increase efficiency in the payroll and operational analysis process
  • Capacity to perform detailed Excel calculations
  • Understanding of the accounting consequence of set calculations, with the ability to translate them to relevant departments
  • An operational-focused and data-driven mindset with a willingness to take ownership of the role and learn continuously

Why join us

We’re on a mission to create more equal opportunities globally. And with that in mind, we’ve built a natively remote company enabling us to attract the best talent no matter where they are.

Need more convincing? Here’s a skimmable, non-exhaustive list of reasons to join us:

  • A global community of talented people working from more than 60 different countries
  • Flexible working hours and fully remote setup. We've been remote from day one. No weird office legacy
  • A high-pace, high-energy, and high-performance environment
  • Trusting, ego-free and truth-seeking team members
  • Pioneering the future of work with a fair, friendly and supportive community. We’re pretty proud of this one
  • A career path towards increased responsibility, mentorship and leadership. We grow, you grow
  • We are a global company with 450+ subscription customers worldwide and are experiencing strong revenue growth. You will be exposed to all aspects of a business in startup mode and scaling quickly
  • We’re just the right size. Not a small startup and not a corporate entity either
  • See something you want to improve? Awesome. We’re a flexible and collaborative team that is always learning and growing
