Senior Tax Analyst

Yelp, Remote, Remote, United States

Connecting people with great local businesses

Duration: Full-Time

Yelp is a growing company and with that comes growth in all our departments including this opportunity on our tax team.

The Team:

What really sets us apart from most other finance roles and teams is that we really prioritize work life balance and want to ensure this is a “grind-free” environment. Our team works closely with other teams across the Company including, but not limited to, the entire Finance organization, Legal, and Product. We do not work in a silo, so you will truly get exposure of areas outside of the norm to help make you a well-rounded professional and, well, mingle a little!

This is a team that truly embodies the Yelp culture of having a great deal of mutual respect, collaboration and pitching in to help each other. 

While we like to have fun and laugh, of course there are times we get busy, so let’s break it down...

The Role: 

With at least 2+ years of experience in a tax, accounting, or finance related position, we’re sure you know what’s expected in this type of role, but aside from working on domestic and international income tax, indirect taxes, and tax accounting processes, there are lots to get your teeth into here! 

There’s the feel-good-factor and opportunity to fulfill your benevolent, altruistic side since one function of the department is to assist with tax and compliance related matters of The Yelp Foundation (you can check out our most recent venture here): http://bit.ly/YelpFoundation
