About the Role
As an EMEA Indirect Tax manager you are responsible for analysing transactions (and contracts) from an indirect tax perspective to enable key business stakeholders to make informed decisions.
In your role, you will work closely with EMEA tax regional leads (40 jurisdictions) and tax business leads (Rides, Eats, Freight, Jump). Your past experience and detailed indirect tax knowledge will support teams to introduce new products onto the market.
