At the Tesla EMEA head office in Amsterdam the new position has arisen for an International Tax Manager. He/she will report to the Senior Manager Tax EMEA and will become part of the EMEA Tax team which has been growing steadily and currently consists of 12 employees. The International Tax Manager will be responsible for a wide range of tax matters but the main focus will be on management of (strategic) tax projects and corporate income tax planning initiatives in the EMEA region. A proven track record in managing corporate income tax matters in multiple jurisdictions, combined with an excellent understanding of both local, European and international tax rules will be essential to succeed in this position.

The International Tax Manager will be responsible for the following:

  • Assist with implementing tax risk management and tax control processes for the group.
  • Building and maintaining strong relationships with external service providers, auditors and tax authorities.
  • Provide input and support to CIT compliance process and the statutory and US GAAP tax reporting processes where needed and prepare position papers on uncertain tax positions.

To keep in pace with the ferocious growth of the company, it will be essential to maintain a highly structured and disciplined approach.

The International Tax Manager will work closely with the business and other parts of the finance department, the wider International Tax team, as well as with external service providers.

As the role develops

As the company is growing very rapidly, both in terms of product diversity and geographical footprint, the role is expected to develop accordingly. This role is therefore perfectly positioned for growth as the organization expands.

The candidate is expected to develop in this role and independently manage tax projects and support in a wide variety of tax queries that come up in the region. You will find solutions and will need to be a trustworthy business partner who can maintain close connections and relations with the business and the rest of the tax team.


Tesla’s mission is to accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy.

Tesla was founded in 2003 by a group of engineers who wanted to prove that people didn’t need to compromise to drive electric – that electric vehicles can be better, quicker and more fun to drive than gasoline cars. Today, Tesla builds not only all-electric vehicles but also infinitely scalable clean energy generation and storage products. Tesla believes the faster the world stops relying on fossil fuels and moves towards a zero-emission future, the better.

  • University degree in fiscal economics or tax law.
  • At least 7-10 years of relevant experience in an international corporate income tax practice, in-house experience is considered a plus.
  • Hands-on experience with at least some of our larger jurisdictions in the EMEA region (Netherlands, UK and Germany) is a big plus.
  • Solid project management and planning capabilities, combined with an excellent feel for and understanding of finance processes and how to balance those against tax requirements.
  • Be capable of achieving short-term results, whilst never losing the right end-state out of sight.
  • Not be daunted by staggering growth and the development needs that come with it.
  • A self-starter who is able to work effectively and autonomously.
  • A great communicator who can build strong working relationships with external advisors and internal stakeholders.
  • Accustomed to multitasking, prioritizing and meeting challenging deadlines.
