Our team of technical writers often acts as our private R&D detectives, piecing together project puzzles and deciphering complex ideas and concepts. As part of our start-up culture, they are continually solving problems, making sense of R&D technologies, and taking initiative every step of the way. At Sycamore Growth Group, we’re looking for applicants who can easily turn thoughts into writing and love to analyze and connect ideas. Our ideal candidate enjoys learning new things every day, exploring the hard sciences, and collaborating with a team of visionary individuals.
As one of Sycamore Growth Group’s technical writers, you will:
Create R&D project summaries: four- to six-page narratives that describe how the client overcame pressing technical barriers through R&D efforts.
Analyze R&D projects across a range of industries: manufacturing, software development, pharmaceutical creation, etc.
Interpret and organize supporting documentation, design specifications, test data results, audio interviews, etc.
Revise other team members’ project summaries.
Our financial analysts are part of a team that prides itself on embodying the sophistication of top accounting and consulting firms while keeping the trailblazing mindset of a start-up. The goal of a financial analyst is to formulate a strategy for calculating, filing, and defending any government incentives that can make an impact. We're looking for someone who is analytical, enjoys complex problem-solving, and has completed extensive coursework in accounting, finance, or economics.
As part of our analyst team, you will:
Collect, process, and compile accounting documentation and related information provided by clients.
Organize spreadsheets and summarize technical information.
Help maximize our clients' R&D tax credits according to federal guidelines.
Interact with our clients and understand how their companies operate.
Conduct interviews with our clients’ engineers and related technical staff to gather information necessary to document/summarize R&D projects.
For both the technical writing and financial analyst internships, we primarily hire students pursuing an undergraduate degree. Our interns have the opportunity to work flexible hours, receive competitive compensation, and collaborate with each other in a casual yet innovative environment. At Sycamore, our interns should feel valued and respected. That is precisely why we invest enough supervision and training that we can give our interns meaningful work. We expect high-quality results — and we have yet to be disappointed.
