Seattle-based tax software company Avalara is laying off employees, according to several posts on LinkedIn by affected workers. Avalara, which went public in 2018, was acquired late last year by Vista Equity Partners in a $8.4 billion deal. The company has more than 30,000 customers that use its compliance automation software to manage their sales and other types of taxes. Customers include Zillow Group, Pinterest, and others. GeekWire reached out to Avalara for details about the cuts and we’ll update when we hear back.
