Job Details

Adam Shay CPA is currently seeking a Tax Manager to do all the normal stuff you’d expect from a tax manager position (review returns, help junior staff develop, prepare complex income tax returns, work with clients, and recommend and implement tax planning strategies) but we aren’t your average firm.

You won’t find our team in a cubicle crunching numbers quietly. Instead, we’re proactively reaching out to our clients, staying in tune with their tax needs, but also remaining dialed into their lives -- which of their kids just started college, how they’re enjoying the boat they purchased last year, and what kind of renovations they’re making to their office.

We want an individual that will be a motivated and dynamic member of the team. An individual that helps the firm to innovate -- constantly creating more efficient processes and workflows, bringing new technologies and strategies to light. The status quo is not a thing around here. And, although we love our offices -- headquartered in the beautiful, coastal area of Wilmington, NC -- we’re happy to welcome someone to the team in a fully remote, hybrid, or completely in-office position.

At Adam Shay CPA, we believe in being transparent and honest in all we do. We are passionate about our work and we strive to have fun while we do it. We also recognize the importance of change and entrepreneurship and we embrace both. We serve our clients with the latest technology and approaches. We see our clients as individuals, not just numbers. Our team doesn't keep timesheets or track billable hours. We work in a collaborative team environment to provide our clients with quality products. Does this sound like a culture you could contribute to?
