    • Support the design and implementation of sales compensation plans, policies and processes each fiscal year (or as needed) that support business objectives

    • Assist with plan effectiveness assessment through data analysis of relevant compensation, HR and target attainment data
    • Partnering with the Finance department to support accrual entries
    • Auditing the current guidelines and processes and finding the opportunities for improvement

    • High attention to detail and a laser focus on the task at hand
    • Strong knowledge of Microsoft Excel
    • Quick learner and tech savvy to be able to adapt and learn multiple tools

    • Strong customer service skills - building trust is at the core of everything you do
    • Ability to thrive in a fast-paced, ever-changing environment

It would be great if you also have:
