OUR MARKET POSITION
Great Minds’ Eureka Math is the most widely used curriculum in the history of American education. It enjoys an unrivaled 40+ net promoter score. Eureka and its sister products, Wit & Wisdom English and PhD Science, embrace much higher expectations for all students and all teachers. In a market dominated by scripted, procedural materials that drive expectations down, Great Minds produces curricula that celebrate knowledge, respect the craft of teaching, and acknowledge the true capabilities of students.
The Senior GL/Payroll Accountant is responsible for managing the entire payroll functionality, including the preparation of payroll and all related financial reporting. Working with ADP, this position is responsible for set-up and monitoring of payroll tax withholding; register and open new payroll tax accounts; and handles tax related correspondence for federal, state, county, and city. In addition, this position is the internal contact with Avalara for business registrations relating to sales tax reporting and processes employee expense reimbursements.
Great Minds utilizes ADP Workforce Now for processing semi-monthly, multi-state growing payroll of 700+ employees. This position operates in fast paced, diverse, and hands-on environment. As the company continues to grow, the Senior Accountant must be able to adapt quickly to meet the changing needs of both the organization, as well as state and federal payroll/tax changes. The ideal candidate will be able to work independently as well as in a highly collaborative team environment.
The Senior Accountant’s success will be through a proactive approach to their job, highly customer service oriented, passionate about accuracy and detail in the payroll function, adaptable and flexible to the changing organization needs, and ambitious in their career aspirations.
