What Do You Actually Do for Work?

Currently finding myself in a position for where I feel "stuck" in the corporate world.
Purpose of this post is to find out what other roles are out there, and just spark dialogue RE: different professions.
Without the fluff, and without trying to sell your job, knowing this is an anonymous forum and you've no pride to protect, what really is your job…what does it require you to do? And if you're comfortable disclosing, roughly what do you earn?
I feel like when I ask my colleagues/friends/network, they're all always hyping up their role in an attempt to "sell" how happy they are.
I'll kick us off - I work as an Auditor at a B4 firm. My job requires me to go on-site to where my clients are located, to "test" their financial statements. i.e. The annual report that they release each year, and the numbers within it…their integrity is the responsibility of my team.
It involves a lot of reperforming, and recalculating what the client has calculated. i.e. if they say they have a couple hundred mil in a bank account, we call their bank/s and double check that the balance is indeed correct.
It's a pretty boring job because it's pretty repetitive. Plenty of menial/robot-like work.
What about you?
Edit: me, $60-$70k approx
