    I worked at Canopy Tax full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Canopy is literally changing the game for millions of Americans and their tax advisors. It's incredibly expensive to build tax software but Canopy is one of only a few have done it (even Microsoft tried and abandoned it after a year or two) -- and Canopy has made the product simple to use, despite a tremendous level of complexity under the hood. The opportunity in tax prep is huge -- and nobody is better positioned to win than Canopy. When I left, they were already winning over customers from legacy incumbents. Only going to get better for Canopy and worse for the legacy players as the product continues to mature.

    Cons

    Lots of challenges come with scaling as quickly as Canopy has grown. The growth has been tremendous but at a cost. Tax prep was a massive undertaking but it will pay dividends.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Canopy Tax in December 2017.

    Interview

    The process was very quick. I had a phone interview that was about 15 minutes. Three days later, I had a face to face interview. I was given an offer two days after the in person interview.
