Here is a guide to how we groom future-ready leaders.

  • There is a vast difference between 'getting the job done' and 'getting the job done right' - an average performance is not a sustainable performance
  • Success is not an end goal, but a process is – it is a series of challenges that must be met and conquered. It is an opportunity to do better than before
  • In a world of ruthless competition, change is the only constant - the sooner we adapt new ways and new technology, the faster our progress
  • There is no work below anyone’s dignity
  • It is crucial to the success of any organization that employees love what they do - work environment needs to be light, healthy and most importantly fun
  • There is a new challenge to overcome and there is something new to be learnt every day - a positive and optimistic attitude is a must
  • You will only know your limits when you push them - the need to know the nitty-gritty of operations that will help employees learn better and explore better solutions
  • There's no point in having a ten-year plan if we don't have a 'right now' plan which ensures that the customer needs are met
  • Delegation ensures even the biggest of problems are resolvable and that every employee is handed a share of work to keep the wheels turning

The Code
A message from our CEO & Founder, Scott McFarlane

It is clear to me, anybody can make money; however, being an innovator and market leader is much harder. Avalara has developed something new and great for sure; however, it can only be achieved with a can-do spirit and an ever-present sense of optimism. I was profoundly moved by a book I read about the “Code of the West.” In fact, we at Avalara are much like the cowboys of the west. We are risk-takers who lay it on the line each and every day and are accountable for the results. I believe the code they developed on the open range is the perfect set of values to manage ourselves by:

  • Live each day with courage
  • Take pride in your work
  • Always finish what you start
  • Do what has to be done
  • Be tough but fair
  • When you make a promise, keep it
  • Ride for the brand
  • Talk less, say more
  • Remember that some things aren’t for sale
  • Know when to draw the line


Our business is centered on the concept of “Cult of the Customer.” This is not some trite marketing phrase; rather it is the essence of Avalara’s business philosophy. Cult of the Customer is simply a commitment to ceaselessly work to meet and exceed our value proposition to our customers by creating the fastest, easiest, most accurate and affordable way to manage sales tax compliance. Anything short of this is unacceptable. This means everybody’s measure of success is based on improving value for the customer. We pay attention to our competitors, but we obsess over customers. Cult of the Customer is how we view our individual and collective value to the business and how we ultimately measure success.


We are all riding together in this venture. We have to be able to rely on the integrity and character of each other and to live by our code.
