Klaviyo is growing rapidly and profitably. Our platform handles billions of events and consists of multiple building blocks that can be combined and reused to deliver outstanding value for customers. Our hypergrowth opens up many interesting opportunities to excel and grow - from scaling to 10X the previous year workload, to being part of internal start-ups that seek to explore markets that our technology can help, to being part of a team that is constantly reinventing themselves to continue to deliver customer value faster even as we continue to grow in size.

The Director of Tax will report to the Corporate Controller and will work with the other members of Finance in scaling the tax function in support of Klaviyo’s broader business initiatives and customers. The ideal candidate will have a breadth of experience in tax and driving process and technology initiatives in a SaaS technology environment and have the ability to operate independently in a fast-paced environment. The candidate should be passionate about building and managing teams, and developing talented individuals. The candidate must also have experience building relationships with internal stakeholders (including leading cross-functional projects), and the ability to automate processes and collaborate with numerous functional teams across the organization. Additionally, the candidate should have working knowledge in tax technical areas (Subchapter C, international tax, M&A) with the ability to apply such knowledge in reporting transactions on the provision and return.

  • Drive US and international sales tax operations and compliance processes, including managing existing and future sales and use tax registrations, overseeing sales and use tax filings, and performing regular review of use tax compliance
