Founding Product Manager

🎯 Our mission

Our mission at Column Tax is to democratize access to financial help and meaningfully improve people’s lives. Today, high net worth individuals in the United States have teams of accountants and lawyers to help them avoid taxes, while in the same country, 3/4 of Americans don’t have access to any financial or tax advice. Over 100M adults in the US report that they would not have the funds to cover a $1,000 emergency bill.

It’s not right. And Column Tax is fixing it.

👥 Our team

We're a fast-growing, tight-knit team on a mission to remake the income tax landscape in the U.S. Our founders (ex-Waymo) and early engineering team (ex-Google Brain, ex-Intuit ML) are passionate about building products that will directly impact the financial security of millions of Americans.

We're backed by world-class investors including Bain Capital Ventures, Core Innovation Capital, South Park Commons & Operator Partners.

We’re a remote-first company and we have flexible offices for in-person collaboration in strategic locations like San Francisco & New York.
