Payroll and Benefits Specialist


Job Function
Toronto | HR | Intermediate

As our Payroll & Benefits Specialist, you will join our existing team who are responsible for managing the full-cycle payroll process and for managing the Group Benefits program for 500+ employees across Canada, US, and the UK. You will prepare and process payroll in accordance with company and regulatory requirements for all employee groups, including processing new hires, employee changes, and terminations, tracking employee vacation, and processing ROEs. You will report to our Manager, Payroll & Benefits and work closely with other team members in the HR team. We take a team approach in managing the payroll and benefits process. 

You will work closely with the ecobee Finance Team, ensuring proper maintenance of employee data and further developing our payroll processes. You will administer our group health plans including enrolments, terminations, and changes to the plan. You will leverage your excellent communication skills to manage employee queries related to payroll and benefits. You will also support the team with processing year-end reporting and tax forms (T4/T2200, W-2, P60 etc.) and preparing ad-hoc reports, as required.  

But it’s also so much more than that! We are looking for someone who can work cross-functionally between HR and Finance to review and recommend improvements to streamline processes and increase efficiencies. We are updating our HR/payroll system in the next year, so you will be a key part in making that transition smooth alongside other team members.
