About April

April believes that every taxpayer should have a world class tax experience, regardless of their background, income bracket, or what they can afford to pay. We build products to improve their financial wellbeing, reduce anxiety around taxes, and provide tools that put their taxes to work for them.

For financial institutions, April is a first-of-its-kind tax experience that is completely frictionless and integrated with the financial services ecosystem. Unlike other DIY tax solutions, we leverage and reinforce their relationship with their members, driving mutual value, savings and new offerings. 

For developers, April provides simple and robust APIs for them to leverage every aspect of the US tax code, and perform calculations and AI-based simulations for creating new experiences within their application or platform.

We are looking for an outstanding VP Product to join our team and help us bring world-class human-centric tax experiences from ideation to production. We have an ambitious goal of reimaging established paradigms and making taxes work for the American people. Help make tax the next frontier in embedded finance.
