About Gusto

Gusto is a modern, online people platform that helps small businesses take care of their teams. On top of full-service payroll, Gusto offers health insurance, 401(k)s, expert HR, and team management tools. Today, Gusto offices in Denver, San Francisco, and New York serve more than 300,000 businesses nationwide.

Our mission is to create a world where work empowers a better life, and it starts right here at Gusto. That’s why we’re committed to building a collaborative and inclusive workplace, both physically and virtually. Learn more about our Total Rewards philosophy.

About the Role:

This is an amazing opportunity to use your payroll expertise to reshape our customer experience. You’ll showcase your passion for customer support by resolving tax notices while delivering a world-class customer experience. You'll act as a detective and problem-solver discovering payroll discrepancies, researching tax laws, and identifying the root cause of notices. You will be working closely with tax agencies as well as our cross-functional partner teams to reach the best outcomes for our customers and provide feedback on tools that streamline the resolution process and prevent similar issues in the future.

This role is very hands-on, with an emphasis on research and analysis, excellent communication skills, and first-principles problem-solving. A strong work ethic and desire to be part of the team is critical for success, as well as the ability to retain and apply large amounts of critical information. You must also possess and take pride in high attention to detail, organization, and task management, and be comfortable working in a fast-paced, deadline-driven business environment.

About the Team:

The Tax Resolution team is within the Payroll Operations organization and is at the core of providing services that give our customers peace of mind. Tax Resolution exists to ensure impeccable delivery of key customer needs. There are thousands of critical operational tasks that are completed for our customers accurately and on time, every time, in a proactive and scalable manner. We collaborate, help each other, and work cross-functional in a positive environment.

Here’s what you’ll do day-to-day:

  • Provide exceptional service to our customers.
  • Interact professionally with our customers via email and/or phone, simplifying the tax notice experience for our customers.
  • Research and resolve payroll tax notices on behalf of our customers with guidance from more experienced team members.
  • Provide clear and concise case documentation.
  • Collaborate with our Compliance, Engagement, and Tax Operations teams.
  • Communicate with government agencies to represent Gusto and advocate for our customers under supervision.
  • Manage your time effectively to meet set goals.
  • Handle a queue of tax notices daily, including updating cases as needed, informing customers of any changes, and seeking assistance from peers on escalated issues.

Here’s what we're looking for:

  • 2-4 years of payroll experience, notice resolution experience is a plus.
  • Ability to work collaboratively with cross-functional teams.
  • Capability to manage multiple priorities within a high-volume, fast-paced environment and adapt to shifting priorities daily.
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills with guidance to resolve issues from complex variables.
  • Excellent communication skills, both written and verbal, with the ability to simplify complex topics.
  • Highly organized and proactive in improving processes.
  • Dedicated to providing an exceptional customer experience during key moments in our customers' journey.

Our cash compensation range for this role is $23.56/hr to $25.48/hr in Denver. Final offer amounts are determined by multiple factors, including candidate location, experience and expertise, and may vary from the amounts listed above.

Gusto has physical office spaces in Denver, San Francisco, and New York City. Employees who are based in those locations will be expected to work from the office on designated days approximately 2-3 days per week (or more depending on role). The same office expectations apply to all Symmetry roles, Gusto's subsidiary, whose physical office is in Scottsdale.

Note: The San Francisco office expectations encompass both the San Francisco and San Jose metro areas.

When approved to work from a location other than a Gusto office, a secure, reliable, and consistent internet connection is required.

Our customers come from all walks of life and so do we. We hire great people from a wide variety of backgrounds, not just because it's the right thing to do, but because it makes our company stronger. If you share our values and our enthusiasm for small businesses, you will find a home at Gusto.
