Our story:

Every year millions of people are either filing their taxes in fear or giving up on their tax refund altogether. We're working on fixing that. Our intuitive app enables anyone, regardless of education or background, to file their taxes with newfound confidence.

Spread across Berlin and Madrid, Team Taxfix is a compassionate group of solution-finders. We speak our minds openly, and with 500+ professionals from 45+ different nationalities, we're rich in ideas and voices. In four years, we've raised over 300 million euros in funding and helped people reclaim more than one billion euros.

Your team:

We believe in Internal Open Source because it cultivates a strong spirit of collaboration and fast evolution, while allowing us to maintain a high standard of quality. We leverage TypeScript (and JavaScript), and the ecosystems around React, React Native and NodeJS to maintain a rapid pace of development. We also utilise Elixir in the reasoning engine used to write our tax logic. Everything runs in containers — orchestrated by Kubernetes and powered by the Google Cloud Platform.

Our cross-functional team structure allows developers to work with a broad scope of our stack. We're passionate about decentralised, end-to-end ownership and deep collaboration. We live our development values by learning from one another through internal meetups, hackathons, and close collaboration.
