Fully Remote

2020 taught us all that in order to be productive you don’t need to be at work, you need to be working. Fonoa’s founders Filip and Ivan (both ex-Uber Sr. managers) knew this from day one, and are building Fonoa as a fully-remote startup. They both believe that a great company should be based on great-fit talent coming from anywhere and working from anywhere.

Joining a remote-company will enable you to disconnect from your local constraints while working for a growing international startup. This is a career-move in which you can become a great global developer and not just a great local one.

As a member of our growing Backend team, you will get to design, build and own a sub-set of the product that will be composed of several high-availability scalable microservices (written in .net core or Node.js).  Fonoa is a technology startup founded in 2018 which launched its SaaS product in mid-2019. We have paying customers, a healthy sales pipeline, and backing from world-class VC funds and business angels from Europe and the US.

Fonoa seats at the intersection of Globalization, Technology and Local tax compliance. Filip and Ivan pinpointed a missing link in a world where global companies are offering local services –  local taxation compliance of transactions. This happens when you order a cab (Uber), order your launch (Ubereats, Grubhub, DoorDush, Wolt) or any other type of purchase that you are making locally via a global provider.

Fonoa’s SaaS automates taxes for platforms, marketplaces, digital service providers, and e-commerce globally. Their software helps service providers to eliminate manual work, reduce the cost of operations and compliance, and optimize their revenue.
