GrantTree provides a financial boost to some of the UK’s most innovative startups and tech companies by helping them make the most of government funding schemes. We're a fast growing company that provides specialist consultancy to the UK's most innovative firms.
One core business is R&D Tax Credits, and a key part of that process is the technical reports that lay out the uncertainties of the development process for HMRC. Fundamentally, we explain why a thing is R&D. We're on the lookout for technical writers who can work remotely and freelance to increase our capacity as we head towards a year of 100% growth.
-You'll have some sort of tech background. Although you might not be a developer, you'll have worked closely with them, maybe as a product owner, project manager or spec writer. Either way, you'll be able to write convincingly about other people's tech stack, and you'll know your Ars Technica from your Emacs.
-Discreet - all of the details you'll work on will be super interesting, but you can't chat about it in the pub.
-Regular - you'll be able to get through at least one claim a week. We have as many as you can fit onto your pudgy little keyboard fingers, though.
