It all started over fish tacos in 2012 when a couple of guys thought there had to be a better way for businesses to handle sales tax. Others were doing it, but they knew technology could drive a better solution and the customer experience should be better. More than ... Read more

    I have been working at TaxJar full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    • 100% remote company - not brick and mortar with some people working remote or sometimes working remote.
    • Great culture. They have and continue to build a culture of collaboration and connectedness.
    • You get to trial out the company (paid) before you make a decision if it's really for you or not.
    • Great benefits.

    Cons

    None that I have run into at this time.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to build and nurture the culture as you grow.

    Partner Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at TaxJar in January 2020.

    Interview

    I applied online. They required a cover letter, which is annoying in itself especially when all of that information can be found on a resume. About a week after I applied I received an email from the HR admin that they're "in the process of narrowing down candidates" - I got about 3 of these emails about a week apart until the last one, where later the same day I was told that they wanted me to speak to HR for the job. I set up time to speak, and the call went well and was told I'd hear back in a day. or so if the hiring manager wanted to speak with me. I heard back that they 'didn't want to move forward' despite that I was overqualified for the position, and they want to keep my resume on file for future consideration for a 'comparable position'... which is a racket every time you hear it and I know they won't contact me. I feel like this company wasted weeks of my time with the 'narrowing down candidates' updates and then not to even have a chance to speak to the hiring manager after that was ridiculous. This company just wastes your time, and then expects you to put in time for their "trial period". I also learned that they haze new hires by making them sing at their first "employee retreat" so I likely dodged a bullet.
