TSGI Corporation, TECHNOLOGY ADVISOR (CLOSED March 7, 2017)
The Business Context
TSGI is a top-tier professional services practice based in Calgary. We are a client-focused team, dedicated to assisting organizations operating in Western Canada to fund their research and development (R&D) activities. We do this primarily by ensuring that our clients receive their full entitlements under the SR&ED (Scientific Research and Experimental Development) tax credit program. TSGI’s clients are dynamic, innovative, high technology leaders from a diverse range of industries. Our vibrant team is composed of multi-disciplinary professionals: Technology Advisors (scientists and engineers) and Tax and Financial Advisors (Chartered Professional Accountants).
As a Technology Advisor, you will get a first-hand look at cutting edge technology, evaluate these client initiatives for eligibility as SR&ED projects, and prepare the reporting for SR&ED Investment Tax Credit claims for clients. In addition to the rewards of being an important player in leveraging clients’ projects, you will have the opportunity to be involved in the local technology development landscape. Developing and maintaining relationships with clients is a critical aspect of the job.
As an organization, we demand the best from our employees while providing a fun and flexible work environment and a respect for work-life balance. We encourage initiative and creativity in getting the job done and are committed to the professional growth of our employees.
You have an advanced degree in science/engineering and have familiarity with technical aspects of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and/or Computer Sciences. You are a natural learner, for whom technical writing comes easily, and you have a passion for being part of the progression of all forms of science and technology.
An outgoing personality with strong communication and interpersonal skills, you are able to interact well with key individuals at all levels in our diverse client base. Your congenial, confident personality contributes to your ability to advocate for your clients and support technical opinions in discussions with technical counterparts within the SR&ED program. You are a goal oriented individual who works well both independently and teamed up with our financial experts on a wide variety of clients. Your enthusiasm for technology and science will underpin a dedication to serving your clients and lead naturally to developing positive business relationships.
Training will be provided within a supportive team environment. TSGI believes in continuous learning and provides a competitive remuneration and benefits package.
