The role

As a Commission and Reporting Analyst, you will be accountable for Sales and Channel Partner compensation administration. This person will be responsible for financial reporting and collaborating with various Operations and Sales teams, Corporate Payroll, Accounting, and IT. The role requires frequent interactions with stakeholders and has a high expectation of timeliness and accuracy of deliverables.

A typical day

This team serves the organizations of two Sales VPs and is responsible for administering 16 different compensation plans, varying in complexity and volume. There are several sales channels involved and this role is closest to seeing what revenue will be coming into Shaw Business in near future. Over time, the needs of Shaw Business have evolved, and the size of the teams has grown. As a result, the Business Sales Compensation team is slowly transforming our operational processes and a fair degree of flexibility and initiative is always required of the team. Over half the month, we run through different phases of the compensation cycle while in slower cycles, we run our special projects, audits, and housekeeping tasks. You will get to interact with our data team, who dresses up transactional information before it is passed to our team for review. You will also work closely with sales leaders as we go through statement review phase. We also join forces with our partners in HR, Business Development, Product Management and Sales Learning on various aspects to drive the business forward. A keen desire to automate processes and templates will bring more value to this job. There are learning opportunities available in areas of Alteryx and Tableau as we increasingly rely on those platforms for our monthly tasks.
