Account Manager (Payroll Specialist)

Portland, OR
  • Posted: March 16, 2023
  • $60,000 to $75,000 Yearly
  • Full-Time

Welcome to Aliat! We care deeply about our culture, clients, and what we do on a daily basis. Our motto is "Do what you love, we'll do the rest" because while we might be passionate about payroll, HR, and benefits - we know not everyone is! If you are passionate about helping small-to-mid sized businesses getting back to what they love, we'd love for you to consider joining our team.

As an Account Manager, it will be your responsibility to accurately and timely complete payrolls for client companies, with guidance from the Chief Relations Officer. This position is client-facing and precision is a must. Over time, you will be the sole Account Manager for numerous clients and will be relied upon to know the ins and outs of those clients and their needs. Most of our clients have been with us for years, so these relationships are built for longevity.

While this position is a hybrid of in-office and remote, we are currently looking for candidates in the Portland Metro area.
