Physical Demands, Working Conditions and Organizational Culture:

This is a full-time, 40-hour-per-week position in a regular office setting, although we are temporarily working remotely during the pandemic. It is expected that, when safe, we will recommence working together in our professional offices in Albuquerque.

We value work-life balance and, while overtime may be required to meet critical deadlines, these demands are comparatively modest. Travel is generally minimal, but may be required on occasion, especially within the Albuquerque-Santa Fe areas. Usual work location would be at the 501(C)PA office, or infrequently, at client offices, and during the pandemic we are all working from our home offices. Dress code at our professional office, on digital meetings, or at client offices, is described as “business casual”.

We strive to maintain a learning culture; our staff are friendly, intellectually curious, alert for ways to gain efficiencies for themselves and our clients, enjoy sharing their experience, and are motivated to increase their professional knowledge and abilities.


Minimum 3 years payroll work experience of a similar nature and an AA degree in accounting or similar field. A payroll certification would be a significant plus.


Competitive compensation & benefits are offered, along with a supportive and friendly work environment and a great quality of work/life balance.
The Payroll Specialist hourly rate will be between $18-$25, depending on prior work experience and education. This position is eligible for employee benefits. Employees who are expected to work at client locations will be reimbursed for mileage between client offices or between 501(C)PA and clients’ offices.

Qualified candidates should apply with cover letter and resume.
