Big milestone for @ColumnTax! Raising a Series A and receiving IRS authorization is a significant step for the team here.

We're hiring across the board! If you work in Engineering, Product Design, or BizOps — my DMs are open, I’d love to hear from you!

About Us

Americans at lower income levels are disproportionately hurt by a complicated tax system. High-net-worth individuals have teams of accountants and lawyers to help them navigate and avoid taxes. In the same country, 3/4 of Americans don’t have access to financial or tax advice and are forced to wade into the complex world of taxes with inadequate preparation.

There’s a better way: year-round, API-first tax products that live in the financial apps people are already using every day. Software that acts like an accountant in your pocket: for every American.

That is the future we are building at Column Tax.

🏔️ As a Founding Product Designer, you’ll have the opportunity to:

  • Re-imagine and re-build the UI/UX for one of the most challenging tasks Americans face
  • Define the interaction model & system design for the Column UI
  • Build the interface & visual design for the Column product & brand
  • Manage Design, UX, and Research (create wireframes, write copy, manage contract designers, run UXR sessions)
  • Work with engineering to correctly scope and prioritize projects by effort/reward

💻 About you:

  • You have experience as a Product Designer for a B2C product (Bonus: Fintech B2C)
  • You have experience working closely with go-to-market teams and either (A) Running pilots with customers or (B) Launching new products with customers
  • You have experience communicating highly technical concepts and working closely with engineers
  • You have strong written communication skills
  • You get excited about doing the little things needed to get a product to market
  • You are able to handle ambiguity & change

⭐ Things we value:

  • Focus: we know that doing great work takes long blocks of uninterrupted time
  • Ownership: everyone at Column is empowered to make big decisions
  • Transparency: expect honest & vulnerable communication
  • Vision: everyone on our team dreams big about solving complex problems
  • Doing the right thing: Tax is an industry with a history of predatory practices; we’re determined to fix that

☑️ What happens after you apply:

  • Intro call with one of the founders
  • Portfolio review with some members from the team
  • Virtual one-day “onsite”: tell us about your previous work & values, see what working with us would be like, and work through a product problem live with the team
