At Avalara, we’re redefining the way companies worldwide manage transactional tax. While you might not see us when you shop online or at your local store, there’s a good chance our technology is working behind the scenes. Making this happen takes people who want more than a job, but an opportunity to make a real impact and be a part of an industry-leading technology.

Traits for success at Avalara
Over the years, we’ve found the following characteristics to be common among our most successful employees. They form the basis for our winning culture and we value them highly.
“Of course we can.” We’re corporately allergic to “it can’t be done.” Great accomplishments never arise from small thinking, so maintaining a positive attitude is vital to success at Avalara.
“Care. Really care.” We live and breathe to take our business to the top and are tormented by an insatiable hunger for success.
“Ride the wave of change.” We accept change as our only constant. There’s no instruction manual for our business. We’re fast, agile, aware, and willing to turn when circumstances shift.
“Presence, not pretense.” We never assume we have all the answers. We know we can improve and embrace all opportunities to learn — from others, and from our own mistakes. Job descriptions are only starting points. There’s no task beneath anyone.
“Work hard, play hard.” At Avalara, we’re serious about fun. We know how to work hard, but joy is also a key ingredient to success. High expectations and high performance are not sustainable in a stilted environment, so we encourage a fun, friendly atmosphere.
“G-in’ the JD (Getting the job done).” Success is our duty, obligation, and responsibility. We don’t make excuses, and we never say “it’s not my job.” We insist on accountability, in ourselves and our colleagues.
“Seek knowledge. Insist on understanding.” We ask “why?” every day and don’t stop until we understand. We benchmark ourselves against the best and constantly seek ways to improve.
“Life is short. Make a difference NOW.” Speed matters in our business. We thrive on pressure and recognize that our time is now. We value a mentality of aggressive action as well as persistence until success is achieved.
“Understand, systematize, automate.” We’re in the simplicity business and refuse to pass the burden of complexity to our customers — internal or external.
