Fonoa is a product-led company. We’re always thinking about our end users, our ability to build world class technology, measured processes and well defined product proposals.

Some pointers about our culture:

  • Our people are given problems to solve, rather than a list of tasks to execute.
  • We always try to understand the customer’s needs before thinking about implementation details.
  • We work in lean, small teams. We co-own the product roadmap with product managers
  • We chose collaboration, compassion and trust over individualism and politics
  • We prefer innovation, constant iteration and trust over competition and perfect solutions.
  • We support each other, are kind by nature, and give as much feedback to all improve as professionals


Fonoa has a suite of API products that automate tax-related workflows for any internet company. Check them out below:

We may discover novel customer needs as we learn, and spin up new products as needed. We expect our engineers to own them as they pop up.

  • We work with dedicated, open-minded people from all backgrounds who bring in their different perspectives to help us on our mission to make taxes simple.

We work remotely

We are building a fully distributed team. We like writing to communicate when meetings are pointless, and meet when it matters. This allows us to work flexibly, efficiently, and focus on achieving goals.

  • We focus on deep work and put our time where it matters the most - decisions.
  • We trust you to work on your terms. You decide how you work and where you work.
  • You have ownership over your work that directly influences the roots of our company.

  • Work with product managers, engineers, and other product designers to define both the long-term strategy and short-term tactics for our product suite
