Rockets are flying into space and landing on drone ships, cars are driving autonomously, and HD video calls can connect people on opposite sides of the globe. But a company doing their business taxes is still extremely manual, tedious, and just...painful.

That's why exists. We want to use modern technology to bring business taxes into the 21st century.

We're starting with the R&D tax credit. Our first product simplifies the complex and difficult process of helping companies apply for the IRS R&D Tax Credit, which puts hundreds of thousands of dollars into each company's pocket.

But this is only the start.

Our vision is to leverage AI to map the tax genome and help small businesses automate their taxes and optimize their entire financial strategy. In other words, what used to be available to the top 0.1% of companies is now available to all SMBs. In the future, will become the essential tax software stack for small businesses.

We just raised our series A, and we're now looking to build the team!

About the team

Our co-founders are:

  • a former IRS agent, who has been a CPA for over 20 years,
  • a Stanford PhD in machine learning, and
  • a former Intuit product manager

Along the way, we've picked up more people from engineering, product, design, sales, and taxes.

But now it's time to level up. This is why we need to grow our team, and this is where you come in! If you are intrigued by what you read, keep reading below. 😉

P.S. We are a remote company, but prefer to hire in time zones that can overlap with our HQ in Mountain View, CA.

About the Senior Full-Stack Software Engineer role

Engineers at make a lot of product decisions because you are a vital part of the product team that collaborates and solves problems for our customers. Because we make those decisions based on customer feedback, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with customers and build something that solves their problems.

Cultural Principles

At, we take our engineering culture seriously. Here's what we look for:

  • Humility
    • Communication is paramount to a strong engineering team, and the best communication is ego-free
  • Sense of Ownership
    • When a bug gets discovered or things start to break, you don't point the finger at someone else; you work with your teammates to come up with a solution
  • Resourcefulness
    • Given a problem, you learn and acquire all the tools you need to solve that problem—even if it's somewhat outside your comfort zone
    • If you're confronted with a hard problem you don't give up—instead you hustle, hustle, hustle.
  • Joy
    • When we meet you, we'll ask ourselves: "Is this person a joy to work with? Would I be excited to work with this person?"
      • We're not gonna lie—we shamelessly stole this from Stripe's "Sunday Test"
  • Curiosity + Growth Mindset
    • We hire for slope—not y-intercept!
      • i.e., we care more about your aptitude than your experience
      • No matter how seasoned you are, there's also something new we can learn from each other

  • Develop high-quality software design and architecture by producing clean, efficient code
  • Automate tasks through appropriate tools and scripting
  • Review, debug, and document code
  • Document development phases and monitor systems
  • Ensure software is up-to-date with latest technologies
  • Help assess and recruit future engineers


  • 5+ years experience in professional software development, ideally some of which you’ve spent in startups
  • Experience owning technically challenging and demanding cross-functional projects
  • Experience across the entire stack, from backend to frontend (and if you have a preference, we’d love to hear it!)
  • Experience in Typescript/Javascript and Python is ideal, but not required
  • In-depth knowledge of relational databases (e.g. PostgreSQL, MySQL) and NoSQL databases (e.g. MongoDB)
  • Experience with cloud-based deployment infrastructure like GCP, AWS, or Azure
  • Ability to make technical decisions quickly, while looping in key stakeholders, too
  • A customer-first mindset and an interest in talking with customers to make sure what we’re building meets their needs
  • Habit of introspection and understanding what’s helped you be successful in the past
  • Bonus points if you have experience in mentoring other team members, and have previously worked closely with designers and PMs
