Work at Abacus

We’re on a mission to expand what’s possible with money – and we’re always on the lookout for great people to join our team.

Financial advice is “what” we do.
Core Values are “how” we do it.

Our core values guide how we operate.

Serve Others

Being in service of our clients, our communities, and each other is at the heart of what we do. As a way of integrating this value into our culture, we also support service through volunteering, employer-provided charitable donations, and pro-bono consulting.

Listen Deeply & Speak with Care

Communication is an art and we work hard to foster an environment of respectful, open dialogue. We offer training and support to practice mindful and intentional communication with our clients and with each other. 

Bring Genius

We each come to Abacus with different backgrounds, passions, and skills. We celebrate our individuality and diversity and encourage each other to continually discover, pursue and share our unique genius. 

Enjoy

We love what we do, and we have fun doing it. Whether it’s Team Tuesday lunches, holiday parties, or catching up on our latest adventures, we spend 1/3 of our lives at work, so let’s make it enjoyable.
