Moss Adams offers opportunities to build your expertise and grow your career in assurance, tax, consulting, and wealth management. Where will you grow?
Assurance services are more than an examination of a company's business—they’re an opportunity to take a global view of an organization, evaluating a company’s overall financial and operational performance to help solve complex business challenges.
As part of the assurance team, you’ll gain experience performing the following services:
Successful tax planning requires the help of experienced tax professionals with the technical skills, knowledge, and strategic thinking to address challenges and make the most of timely opportunities.
You’ll help clients and gain expertise in the following areas:
Federal, state, and local governments constantly seek ways to stimulate economic development and investment. One lever used frequently is tax credits and other incentives designed to foster innovative research and development, keep businesses in certain jurisdictions, or give them a reason to move to those jurisdictions.
On these teams, you’ll help companies apply and qualify for credits and incentives; ultimately, discovering opportunities to save clients money on federal, state, and local taxes and turn what would have been tax expenditures into positive cash flow to help grow their business.
Many companies have some form of activity outside their national jurisdiction, whether it's foreign subsidiaries, joint ventures, international suppliers, or import-export relationships. These arrangements can provide distinct competitive advantages, but also create challenges for organizations to remain in compliance, reduce risk to individual employees and the company, and succeed in the marketplace. On the International Tax team, you’ll help companies understand the international components of their overall business operations and enhance their value.
Our team provides a variety of state tax consulting services, including but not limited to, income and franchise tax, sales and use tax, property tax, and tax controversy representation. With a large multistate Tax Practice, our State & Local Tax team helps clients across industries remain in compliance and reduce their tax burden.
Our team of tax, family office, and investment advisory practitioners work together to help families, executives, and business owners plan for the future and achieve their goals. As part of Moss Adams, you’ll have the opportunity to work with clients that are doing amazing things: writing the next chapters in their family stories, building companies, creating legacies, and impacting communities.
We have several different technical tracks within our wealth management team. Common among them is a vision for collaborating to meet our clients’ needs and to learn and grow with each other and positively impact client outcomes through multiple perspectives and technical disciplines.
Our personal tax team works with clients to develop a comprehensive tax strategy tailored to their unique circumstances and helps preserve their hard-earned wealth. Our goals are to help reduce their tax burden and financial risk by creating a plan that works in concert with the other components of their financial framework and lifestyle.
It takes careful planning to employ tax-saving strategies.

Core services include financial administration, financial reporting, coordination with other advisors, and major purchase consulting.
Operational team members manage our business, are responsible for our centralized processes and technology, and strive to ensure we deliver an excellent client experience.

Our services are designed to meet the client’s needs and can include support for accounts payable, fixed assets, bank and balance sheet account reconciliations, and month-end activities. Our goal is to be seen as an integral member of the client’s team and an advisor to their business operations.
Our team offers a wide range of back-office financial services to real estate funds, joint ventures, and syndicators. We work across all property types including multifamily, commercial, industrial, and development from acquisition to disposition.

In an increasingly complex regulatory environment, compliance risk management is essential, whether to meet statutory requirements, adhere to practices in corporate governance, or reduce reputational risk. On the Risk Advisory & Compliance team, you’ll work with clients in three specific areas:
Our IT Compliance team focuses on compliance around technology supporting financial compliance, ranging from internal financial audits, public company audit requirements, to IT internal control validation and audits for businesses processes and technology.
Day-to-day work on this team involves assessing internal controls, mitigating risks, conducting IT audit reviews, and implementing controls to promote compliance with regulatory requirements and industry practices. This team works in close contact with our firm’s Assurance and Internal Audit teams. Junior team members could be exposed to both System and Organization Control (SOC) Examination and IT Compliance engagements.

Internal audits help clients achieve reliable financial reporting and regulatory compliance. As part of our internal audit team, you’ll help clients with both tasks while navigating risk through internal audits, Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) consulting and compliance, process and control improvement, and internal controls reviews.
You’ll also help businesses mitigate the risk of fraud by evaluating the quality and effectiveness of their controls, providing solutions to improve their responses to warning signs, and lending your expertise to forensic investigations.
