Why Keeper Tax?

Call it the gig economy, the passion economy, or side hustles, over half of Gen Z workers are now getting paid with 1099 contracts. Tax law is confusing and many workers with 1099 income don’t realize how many write-offs they’re missing.

Keeper Tax’s mission is to build software for this new generation of workers. Our product helps them:

  1. Identify tax write-offs automatically
  2. E-file at tax time
  3. Connect with tax professionals for any questions they might have

On average, customers save $1,200 per year using our product!

As a data engineer at Keeper Tax, what will I be working on?

Here are some examples of projects on our roadmap:

  • Deploy GPT-2 in-house: We would like to experiment with hosting our own GPT-2 model to clean transactions and predict write-off categories.
  • Improve scale and reliability of our pipeline: We would like to transition our data platform from our current cron-based system to a modern platform like Airflow.
  • Add table version control: We would like track changes in some of our critical business entity tables over time (e.g., validated merchant names, validated merchant to category mappings).

You would be a good fit for Keeper Tax if:

  • You want to move fast, and you don’t like being blocked. You're a problem solver. You find a way to get things done. We believe in "ask forgiveness, not permission."
  • You care more about solving problems for the user than about the specific technologies used. We use Python, SQL, and Kubernetes because they're standard. They have a lot of libraries that are well-used and well-maintained, and there are a lot of resources for getting started and for debugging advanced problems.
  • You want to have a significant hand in planning and managing your own work. At Keeper Tax, you will own projects end-to-end. You'll brainstorm with data, plan out your work, do the implementation, add tests, deploy to Kubernetes, and monitor your improvements post-release.
  • You believe that a team is stronger together than apart. You are willing to help other engineers with questions, code review, and brainstorming. You are willing to help data and PM with technical questions.


  • You have shipped data pipeline updates to production using Airflow (or an equivalent Python-based, data pipeline technology).
  • You have good working knowledge of SQL.
  • You live in SF or are willing to relocate. We're a small team (20 people), and at this stage we're looking for people who want to work in person with us. We have a flexible WFH policy (3 days WFH per week).
  • You don’t require visa sponsorship. Unfortunately, we don't support F1 or OPT visas.
