Hear from the founders

What is the core problem you are solving? Why is this a big problem? What made you decide to work on it?

Startup founders want to focus on building their products, not trudging through state department websites to learn about obscure rules and opening countless tax accounts just to pay their teams in those places. Today, more startups than ever before are starting fully distributed – the new frontier of startups looks different. They have full-time employees in multiple US states, but also international contractors in the mix. Being able to comply with the US state tax regime in every state as well as managing international workers is much more of a problem today than ever before. We started Warp to fix this because we believe founders should not have to spend their time dealing with routine tax account compliance or worrying about whether their team will receive their next paychecks on time.

What is your long-term vision? If you truly succeed, what will be different about the world?

Our mission is to build the most delightful, complete, and reliable software stack for founders to run their startups. We are building Warp to enable this new frontier of distributed startups lowering the barrier to starting and running new companies.
