"TaxJar's remote team of Rubyists are some of the finest engineers I've had the pleasure of working with. We write well-tested code that's easy to maintain and we ship it fast. Most of us have built our own startups. We share our knowledge, help others, and contribute to open source. It's refreshing to be part of a real company with thousands of paying customers and a transparent, fully remote culture that's always improving."
