Position Overview

We are seeking a self-motivated Tax Accountant to join our Corporate Tax team, who is self-aware and who takes initiative. As a Tax Accountant at Kiewit, you must be assertive to take on learning activities and grasp developmental opportunities. You must also have the ability to build relationships quickly and naturally, as these relationships will bring you the credibility needed to operate as a successful business partner within Kiewit. Whether you have a year or two of Tax experience, or you've only studied it in school, this is a great opportunity to work in the Private sector, with very little travel, and more work/life balance than Public Accounting. This is also a great opportunity to learn and grow with our organization, as we like to promote from within.

We depend on our high-performing operations support professionals - they're the glue that holds multiple areas of the business together and the catalysts that make things happen. We hire only the most driven people and we offer them diverse career opportunities, strong leadership and mentorship, rewarding, collaborative work, and responsibility they won't find just anywhere. We're always pushing new limits. You can too.
