🗞 In the News
At ComplYant, our mission is to make tax resources more accessible to small business owners and solo entrepreneurs! Based in Los Angeles and Venture-backed by Techstars, Craft, Mucker, and Slauson & Co, our goal is to provide entrepreneurs with technology that helps them feel confident in their business tax management with deadline tracking, budgeting, and so much more.
Our vision is to upend the status quo and level the playing field so that small businesses can benefit from great tax support like big companies do, and avoid tax penalties. We are not a tax firm. We are a technology startup putting the power back in the hands of the business owner. We want to completely upend the status quo that says only the rich can benefit from great tax support.
Our core values are the pillars by which we operate, lead, and learn. It's the energy that permeates all we do within the company and the truth that we strive to stand by.
|🙌 Lead with support||Leadership is not the act of standing over someone and giving instruction but of standing beside them and giving feedback. We do this by learning how to give and receive effective feedback, by allowing autonomy with work, and by giving clear deadlines, and the freedom to execute with creativity.|
|🔗 Connect through transparency||Because we are a remote-first environment, authentic connection requires transparency. This means transparency in salaries, titles, goals, metrics, the financial position of the company, and anything else that attributes to the success of ComplYant as a whole. We also encourage our team to communicate with each other as honestly and transparently as possible.|
|🚧 No shortcuts on integrity||We are a tool that’s focused on improving the tax process. Taxation is extremely regulated and audited. Our customers trust us to provide the highest integrity when dealing with their personal information. No shortcuts, even if it's easier, we will always choose the path that ensures we are protecting our users' sensitive data|
|📢 Call out the foolishness||If you see something say something. That goes for inappropriate behavior, mistreatment of others, a lapse in integrity, or anything else that can attribute to a psychologically or physically unsafe work environment. These things will not be tolerated.|
|💖 Show up as yourself||Be true to who you are and you are guaranteed our respect. Being anything else is a sacrifice to your mental health that we can not allow.|
<aside> 🛠️ We believe in what we’re building. Our team believes what we’re building is going to help entrepreneurs thrive and make the lives of many small business owners much easier. We’re really, truly excited to help.
<aside> 🏡 We are remote-first. ComplYant is a 100% remote company and has been from the beginning. We believe people are happier and ultimately more productive when they can have their lives back, in their own space with the flexibility to be able to go to appointments, pick up their kids, or do a load of laundry.

We understand that you’re a human being first, and a member of our team a little bit further down the list. Life happens, and we’re here to support our team members however we can.
<aside> 💻 How we work: We segregate work into teams to help guide your work to ensure we all stay on task and collectively continue to build something we all believe in. This also means that you’ll be able to join other teams to learn and grow because we don’t believe in siloed skills or teams. We are better as a whole if we all can contribute anywhere and everywhere our skill sets could be of value.
<aside> ✌️ We are diverse, equitable, and inclusive. Our team was built on these foundations, and we do whatever we can to support and lift up minorities, as well as, foster an environment of inclusiveness, equity, and diversity.

We believe meetings should be held when truly needed, otherwise, we use other tools to do the job. We have regular team check-ins and one-on-ones, as well as a regular all-hands meeting, but otherwise we try to allow people time and space to get their job done, rather than keeping folks in meetings all day.
They "put their money where their mouth is" as far as culture goes. It's very open, honest, supportive, and trusting. - Work/life balance is great because you're really truly allowed to have it. - When you need support or have a question, you feel very comfortable asking. - Teammates are pretty much all stellar… HR is actually there to support the people over the company as a whole, it's pretty wild - There's no false sense of urgency - if something needs to get done by a deadline, you understand why and how to get there, and what the impact is getting it done by then.
