We work closely with eCommerce partners like Amazon, Shopify, eBay, Square, Magento and WooCommerce to help eCommerce businesses thrive.

We offer TaxJar Reports, a simple web-based reporting tool that organizes sales tax data into return-ready reports by state, AutoFile, a service that automatically files sales tax returns (this is the team you’d be joining), and SmartCalcs API, a modern, accurate, sales tax API for developers to outsource sales tax rates and calculations.

HOW WE WORK

We all work remotely from wherever we work best for each team member. For most of us, that's home. For others, that may be a local coffee shop or your summer vacation house. The only requirement is that you're working from a place with WiFi and you're able to get your work done. We talk all day over Flowdock and each of our teams have separate rooms to discuss what's necessary.

We meet daily in individual team 'stand ups' for 15 minutes to go over the team's plan for the day. We meet as a company weekly to go over priorities, and every Friday, we have a company-wide social/culture meeting to just talk. We do all of this because we know we need to keep the team "together" while being distributed, and it's easy... You just click a button and you're in the Hangout.

We’re committed to working remotely as a team. We don't worry about rush hour. We don't worry about having to pick kids up from school and wondering what our bosses will think. We don't need to hunt to find open conference rooms. We love being a distributed team, and are looking for others that will thrive in this unique environment.

We’re a happy TaxJar team and we all really love what we do. We've created a space where high-achievers can succeed, but are also safe to fail.
