At Sovos, we're dedicated to more than just solving compliance challenges – we're committed to making a positive and lasting difference in everything we do. Our teams operate on the modern edge of digital technology, working not only to solve complex business challenges but also to enrich our personal, professional, and local communities.

Don’t worry if you don't check all the boxes – apply anyway! We're focused on hiring the right people, not just the "right" resume. It's not about what you've done elsewhere; it's all about what you're capable of doing here.

The Work You'll Do:

As a Regulatory Compliance Engineer II, you will be primarily responsible for validating the quality and accuracy of the rates and rules contained in our tax calculation engines and related products. We update our solution multiple times a month, and ensuring the rules work as intended is critical. While our content quality assurance process utilizes a suite of tools and automated processes, we ultimately rely on the team's diligence to ensure everything is correct every time.

Sovos actively collaborates with several state governments under state-sponsored compliance programs (e.g., Streamlined Sales Tax). Members of this team are responsible for ensuring the completeness and accuracy of the data we are required to supply for these programs.

Ideal candidates for this role are sharp, adaptable, work well under constant deadlines, and have tremendous attention to detail. They should be interested in developing, owning, and continuously improving a successful Quality Assurance process.

What are my responsibilities going to be, more specifically?

  • Become a subject matter expert in "tax" and "tax software" — understanding how tax rules work, their intended functions, and their proper implementation in software.
  • Create and review suites of test scenarios (unit, automated, and regression) designed to validate the accuracy and completeness of our content changes.
  • Enhance and evolve the utilization of automation in our testing process.
  • Understand the data we provide to states under our compliance programs (current and future) and take ownership of ensuring its timely and accurate delivery.
  • Develop and cultivate cross-functional relationships with Product and Development teams, Client Support, Professional Services, Compliance Services, and external state regulators and third-party auditors.

What We Ask of You:

  • Demonstrated inclination towards a career in technology
  • Academic or work experience in .SQL and/or Python preferred
  • Interest in working at the dynamic intersection of tax and automation
  • Self-directed learner, personally accountable for your own professional development
  • Passionate about accuracy
