Economic Incentive Specialist & Client Success

Remote USA


We're hiring our team of founding incentive specialists and client service representatives. You will help us create and maintain the first ever comprehensive database of local, state, and federal economic incentives and tax credits and to work directly with small business owners to help them access these programs. You will work directly with the co-founders, President, product and engineering teams, and deeply engage with our first clients.

About you

People we think are likely to thrive:
Willingness to tackle large thorny problems in a systematic and thoughtful way.
Open to trying new ideas and ways of doing things and not afraid of change.
Strong communicators internally and with clients across medium: email, phone, and Zoom. Comfortable writing documentation and artifacts for other team members to learn from.
Those who embrace charting a course through ambiguity.
Know how they’d perform in a remote work environment.
Two to four years of economic development, consulting, or tax related experience in the government or private sector.
Bachelor's degree or equivalent in Accounting, Business Administration, Real Estate and/or Economics/Finance.

About the role

We are looking for individuals who are interested in:
Researching credit and incentive programs. This includes reviewing program statute, rules and regulations, and any proposed legislation that could impact the programs.
Preparing applications and amended returns for various credits and incentives on behalf of our small manufacturing clients.
Drafting filings, such as petitions for redetermination, refund claims, and various other administrative replies.
Performing detailed calculations of credit and incentive benefits and client eligibility.
Some familiarity with economic incentives that fall along at least one of the following dimensions:
Employment-specific, including training, wage subsidies, tax credits, pay per job grants and recruitment assistance.
Operations and financing, including utility discounts, subsides, exemptions and reduced cost financing.
Location-specific, including enterprise zones, empowerment zones, Tax Increment Financing (TIF) districts and new market tax credits (NMTC).
Capital investments, including tax abatements, tax refunds, tax credits, project grants and infrastructure.

Why you might be excited about us

Big mission. We’re working to unlock massive amounts of productivity from American small businesses in a space that is beginning a shift of trillions of dollars of economic activity.
We're small and just getting started! You'll have a massive impact over fundamental aspects of the business.
We believe in developing people and putting our employees first. We will work together to shape your role in such a way to meet your long-term professional goals.
We have big technical challenges to solve and a huge revenue opportunity to unlock.
We have backing from top-tier investors and thought partners who you will meet throughout the interview process.

Why you might not be excited about us

We're small, so if you like more established companies, it's not (yet) the right time. We're looking for someone to help build our company's culture.
Since you'll have a lot of autonomy and creativity over projects, they may not be defined perfectly initially. You'll be expected to bring your own experience and perspective to help us do the right things and raise flags if you think we should do things differently.
We’re refactoring the way money flows from governments to small businesses. This can and will get messy.
