Why We Work Here

Jake Johnson
Platform Integrations

"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."

Ryan Thompson

"Imagine a job where you literally have no geographical boundaries to find and work with the best teammates in the world. That's TaxJar."

Matt Anderson

"Ditching the commute for remote work was great, but it has been so much more rewarding being a part of building a truly distributed team at TaxJar. I've learned so much from this experienced team and I'm constantly amazed by what we have done in such a short time."

Lizzy Greenburg

I am so thankful that I get to work with such fun and caring teammates. Doesn't feel like "work" anymore."

Alec Carper

10/10 would recommend. I enjoy working with a frighteningly intelligent team that has better communication than my previous in-office jobs.

Tom Spang

"TaxJar is great because I know what my role is, how to execute it and the results show. I feel trusted and am given the tools to do my best and I feel like I'm making a measured impact on the business. Also I love the flexibility I have to balance work life and home life."

"TaxJar's (virtual) office culture is one of my favorite things about this company -- the team feels like a family. Working in customer success, no two work days are the same, and it's a really fun challenge I look forward to every day!"
