  • Work closely with Global and Regional Tax teams to ensure the proposed solution has the highest level of assurance along with well-defined service level management approach to effectively manage risk of engagements
  • Support the delivery teams on Service Transition and Service Management when the engagement is being setup up; at least until service delivery stabilization is achieved
  • Ensure both personal and professional skills are kept up to date for successful execution of role

Preferred experience

  • 10+ Years of indirect tax software B2B and pursuit management experience
  • Hands-on experience of successfully selling and solutioning applications across different technologies

What we look for
We’re interested in flexible professionals with excellent problem-solving skills and the ability to prioritize shifting workloads in a rapidly changing industry. You’ll also need the confidence to give professional advice and guidance to colleagues and clients from a diverse range of cultures, often with limited information – both verbally and in writing. If you’re a fast learner, with strong influencing skills and a genuine passion for shaping and selling large technology operations deals, this role is for you.
