Sales Executive – Vancouver, BC

Boast helps companies in the US and Canada automate the complicated process of claiming R&D incentives from the government. Some of the tax programs we work with include US R&D Tax Credits, Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED), and Interactive Digital Media Tax Credits (IDMTC).

While the US and Canadian governments provide more than $10 billion in R&D incentives each year, the qualification criteria are confusing, the documentation requirements are onerous, and the claim preparation process is tedious.

Boast takes over this burden and manages the entire claim process, so our clients can focus on building their businesses instead of chasing R&D credits.

Our software connects with a company’s existing systems such as JIRA, GitHub, Asana, Slack, Basecamp, Email, Payroll etc. and identifies the necessary documentation to support R&D tax claims. Our in-house engineers and CPAs review this data on an ongoing basis and prepare claims proactively throughout the year. This approach combining software and experts ensures that the R&D tax claims are maximized and are defensible in the event of a government audit.

We are based in San Francisco, Vancouver, and Calgary. We’re currently looking for a Sales Executive for our Vancouver office.
