Grossberg Company LLP, a mid-sized Washington DC area CPA firm, is a premier provider of accounting, tax and business consulting services. We provide a solid, friendly work environment and are seeking skilled Staff Accountants to join our team in Bethesda, Maryland.
Staff accountants are integral members of our professional team. The work they perform is at the core of what we do for our clients. They are exposed to auditing, accounting and tax work providing support to a variety of client engagements and have many opportunities to put the business and accounting theory and knowledge learned in school into practice across multiple industries.

Staff accountants are the main source of our firm’s future seniors, supervisors, managers, and partners.
