Accounting Services Associate - Cheyenne

FULL-TIME position in our Cheyenne, Wyoming office.

Big firm expertise with small firm customer service. With over 75 employees, MHP is the largest regional CPA firm in Wyoming. However, since our start in the early 1930s, MHP has been dedicated to personalized customer service to both our employees and clients. MHP is deeply rooted in the Cheyenne community, both figuratively and literally-not only have we been around for over 90 years, but our office is also located in the heart of downtown Cheyenne within walking distance of good food, coffee, and breweries.

Tradition meets modernization. While the wild west may come to mind when you think of Wyoming, and that is a part of our history we hold dear, don't think we've been left in the proverbial dust. Our city is home to topnotch restaurants, breweries, shopping, art galleries, and theater. Where you might see History and Today collide best may be Cheyenne Frontier Days, the largest and oldest rodeo in the world. Hundreds of thousands of people from all over come to Cheyenne to see the concerts, special events, and rodeo each year. If the outdoors are more your scene, Wyoming is not lacking there either. We have some of the best camping, skiing, fishing, hunting, climbing, and biking in the country.

You're more than a number. As part of our MHP team, you'll have the unique opportunity to make your mark on the company and advance your career in the area you desire. Managers and Partners have an "open door policy", which is practically unheard of in larger firms. We encourage employees to get involved in our community as well as with each other-we host several team building and employee events every year, including holiday parties, BBQs, cornhole tournaments, Friday Nights on the Plaza (a Cheyenne summer concert series), and more!
