We are looking for a detail-oriented Assistant Controller to join the Business Operations (BizOps) practice in Boerne/San Antonio. As a member of CLA’s BizOps practice, you will be a member of the CLA client service team and will work directly with our clients to provide customized accounting services to support them as they manage and grow their business or organization.

This position provides an outstanding opportunity to grow your career as you contribute to the success of clients’ businesses or organizations.
