Job description, responsibilities and duties

Amazon’s vision is to be Earth's most customer-centric company; to build a place where people can come to find and discover anything they might want to buy online. Originally known as an online bookseller, Amazon has dramatically expanded its range over the years both in terms of products it sells and how it sells them, as well as diversifying into web services, online video, and so much more.

The team is growing, opening now new VAT Controllership Team location in Slovakia (Bratislava).

The role will have EMEA VAT focus, including design and implementation of VAT controls, identification and mitigation of VAT risk, management of quality control, and identification and implementation of process improvements. The role will involve also participation in cross-functional business projects and will therefore also require project management ability, understanding of financial systems, and technical accounting awareness.

Responsibilities include:
· Working with the VAT C&C team on implementation of strategies to improve controls and reduce risk;
· Actively working as part of teams supporting cross functional project launches end-to-end, from scoping through to testing and launch;
· Actively participating in rolling out an enhanced “VAT Control Framework”;
