Payroll Specialist

Payroll Specialist's Mission

Hi. We’re Jam3, a design and experience agency. We help modern brands launch their products and design new customer experiences in digital, and beyond.

Our team brings folks together from around the world. We have Strategy, Creative, Experience Design and Production all under one roof (four roofs, actually). This amazing fusion of talents lets us make things we could never make alone.

Innovating all day makes us pretty fun people to work with too. We’re curious about new ideas, we know how to make them happen, and we’re always there to support each other throughout the process.

If you like making good things even better you’ll fit right in.

As our new Payroll Specialist you will be a key member of the Accounting and HR teams, working closely with the Controller and Human Resources to manage payroll, source deductions and perform a range of financial and administrative functions as directed. You will have the opportunity to develop your payroll management skills, elevating you to the next career level.

You’ll be responsible for timely and accurately processing of payroll for approximately 150 employees between Canada and U.S. on a semi-monthly basis. We're project-based, so we're always working with someone interesting, be it adidas, Facebook, Google, Oculus, Netflix, or Diageo.

Read on for details! We’re looking forward to meeting you.
