More about this company

We are Settly! We are a purpose-driven HR tech scale-up on a mission to redefine the relocation experience for the new generation. We believe everyone deserves to feel at home, no matter where you come from, what you earn, or how long you’re staying. Diversity & Inclusion is our DNA and the foundation of what we do and why. In our first year of operation, we were named top 200 inspiring diverse start-ups by Techleap.

25-50 employees
Noord-Holland, Amsterdam e.o.
60% Female / 40% Male / 0% Non-binary
Settly’s cultural values
Doing the right thing especially when nobody’s watching. Make an impact now. Stay humble. We are passionate. Always developing.
Why Settly thinks DE&I is important
It’s our core business to relocate people and we strongly believe that everyone deserves to feel at home. No matter where you come from, what you earn, which gender you identify with or how long you stay. Every day we strive to achieve this for both our own people and our clients. Foundational to this is Diversity & Inclusion which is both in our DNA and the essence of what we do and why.

Their biggest challenge in DE&I

We are a bit of the odd one out in the start-up world though, as we’re majority female (60/40%) across all levels, and teams, including leadership. Also, the industry (HR tech) is predominantly female. We’ve built our foundation and values around DE&I so the focus will be more on maintaining and being a role model to other start-ups.

The challenge

In this role you will develop and build the tax processes that will help our clients navigate the nuances of the Dutch tax system as expats, including submitting 30% tax ruling applications. You will be working in a fast-paced environment, across finance and operations. As we continue to grow you will be given the opportunity to grow your team and fully own the new product and services that you will have the autonomy to develop with support from our leadership team.

Furthermore, you’ll be partnering with our product team to continuously optimise and automate our processes to enable our team to work effectively, deliver top notch customer service, make a real impact on our business and allow other colleagues to excel in their work.

Some of your key responsibilities 

  • Build and implement a full range of tax services in compliance with Dutch laws and regulations.
  • Collaborate with our external tax advisor to partner on ongoing casework and enable transition of other work.
  • Build relationships and interact with clients to provide excellent planning, consulting and expertise on global tax matters in support of their global mobility and international talent strategies.
  • Manage client expectations and questions, and provide effective issue resolution.
  • Manage a team providing tax support and advice to our clients.
  • Provide innovative tax planning and review income tax returns.
  • Identify and mitigate tax risks for our clients.
  • Manage tax support and reporting and tax compliance processes.
  • Enhance operations and delivery by developing or implementing best practices.
  • Support clients with preparation and coordination of tax audits.
  • Collaborate with Product team to develop and improve application tracking and other innovations.
  • Work closely with the Ops & Finance teams to establish and optimise processes.

The biggest challenge in this role?
We are bootstrapped, value driven and ambitious. So we have to be lean and creative in everything we do. We want to grow fast and scale across multiple countries whilst maintaining a top notch client experience of 9.5. Are you up for the challenge?
