Senior Tax Associate

In this unprecedented and uncertain time, you have come to the realization that you desire more flexibility in your career, while your talent and knowledge can continue to make a positive impact. You have worked hard for your professional achievements and deserve a supportive workplace which further develops your career growth and encourages work-life balance. In the age of mandatory work-from-home orders, our supportive and award-winning work culture has seamlessly transitioned virtual video meetings into the new way to visit with your favorite colleagues, in addition to conducting business as usual. Our mission is to support our clients first, but we do this by supporting each other.

We take culture seriously – recognized for nine consecutive years by Crain’s Chicago Business and Accounting Today as a “Best Place to Work.” We offer unlimited paid time off because we understand our professionals can manage work best when given the freedom to balance and enjoy life.

At Mowery & Schoenfeld, we believe in an entrepreneurial, growth mindset. We encourage ideas and solutions for our business and our clients at every level.

Does this sound like a place to build your career? We are growing quickly and invite talented CPAs, such as yourself, to come onboard as a new Tax Senior Associate.
