Full time Product Manager

Job Description

🎯 Our mission

Our mission at Column Tax is to democratize access to financial help and meaningfully improve people’s lives by providing game-changing tax solutions. 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 team (ex-Google, ex-Intuit, ex-Khan Academy) are passionate about building products that will directly impact the financial security of millions of Americans.

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

  • Work with the founders to align on a product vision & convert that into a product strategy
  • Jump in and solve problems across the product & business (we're all owners at Column Tax)
  • Run pilots with Column Tax customers
  • Oversee end-to-end creation and management of technical software products
  • Manage Design, UX, and Research (create wireframes, write copy, manage contract designers, run UXR sessions)

  • You have experience communicating highly technical concepts and working closely with engineers
