Avalara – Why Work For Us?

Our Headquarters on Bainbridge Island, Washington is a modern, sprawling, 3-story building. And while most of us tend to take the stairs, the elevator ride is short. Which is why it’s good that our “elevator speech” is short as well.

“We provide the fastest, easiest, most accurate and affordable way to manage sales tax compliance.”

That’s our value proposition, and it’s all there in a nice little nutshell. But if it were a longer elevator ride – a really big high-rise, our story might be longer. We’d talk about how Avalara is a Software-as-a-Service, cloud-based, transaction-tax solution that integrates directly into existing workflow processes. We eliminate the tedious work and complexity of calculating, collecting, reporting on, and remitting taxes across multiple jurisdictions.

We offer integrations with more financial, e-commerce, point-of-sales and mobile applications than any other transactional-tax solution on the market.

Today our tax decision engine processes more than 1.7 million tax calculations every day. We file more than 500,000 tax returns every year for more than 25,000 licensed users throughout the U.S., Canada and abroad. And with the stunning growth we’ve been experiencing, you can know that as sure as you're reading this, those numbers are already outdated.
