    Ready to move on from a corporate environment or CPA firm? Have you ever considered working in a fast paced early stage company? If you have an interest in being part of a quickly growing company focused on helping entrepreneurs across the nation, this opportunity might be for you.

    About Clarus R+D

    Started by two co-founders and friends, Clarus R+D is a high growth early stage company headquartered in Columbus, OH. The R&D tax credit is America’s largest tax incentive for innovation, but traditional obstacles have caused this credit to be largely unclaimed. Why does this matter? Running a small business is hard enough. We wanted to make it easy for entrepreneurs to take advantage of all of the resources available to them.

    At Clarus, we develop technology driven solutions that help great companies claim benefits that they have earned. Our software offers a simple and cost-effective solution for startups, SMB’s, partners and corporate taxpayers to grow their businesses by claiming the R&D tax credit. Our impressive growth has allowed us to work with 800+ customers across the country, and to help them claim over $70M in tax credits.

    We are seeking passionate individuals to join our team who share our mission to get money back into the hands of hardworking entrepreneurs to help them innovate, hire, and grow our economy.
