Careers at PrairieView

PrairieView Partners was established to fulfill a purpose that was not, in our view, being adequately met in the marketplace. Individuals with net worth’s between $2 million and $15 million, our target market, have a multitude of needs related to investing, retirement planning, estate planning, taxation, education planning, charitable giving, and risk management. While there are many qualified professionals able to give expert guidance in one or two of these areas, what is too often lacking is coordination.

Providing highly personalized, unbiased, advice truly integrated across multiple disciplines is at the core of PrairieView Partner’s business philosophy. The goal is to serve as the central point of communication for our clients—to thoroughly understand their situation and objectives and to make sure their investment, retirement planning, estate planning, tax, insurance, and other financial needs are being appropriately met.

Our team of professionals is key to our success and maintaining our high client-retention rate. It is the mission of our firm to grow and develop highly motivated and competent staff by providing professionals the opportunity for growth and accomplishment, financial participation in firm success and an environment fostering team camaraderie and personal improvement. We have established career paths at all levels of our firm to provide unlimited opportunities for all members of the PrairieView team. Please send all inquiries to

Tax Professional with Interest in Personal Financial Planning

PrairieView Partners, LLC, an established St. Paul-based “fee-only” financial planning and wealth management firm, and Irwin Schaffer, LLC, a commonly-owned Minnesota licensed CPA firm, seek an experienced tax professional who is interested in personal financial planning. The successful candidate will have five-plus years of experience preparing and reviewing individual tax returns, familiarity with fiduciary taxation and estate administration, and the ability to be responsible for tax returns that can be filed without substantial additional review.

The ideal person will be a CPA and/or tax attorney working at a senior level for a CPA firm, law firm, or trust company with experience consulting directly with mid-to-high net worth clients. We are seeking a talented tax professional to use his or her tax knowledge as a basis to provide cross-disciplinary financial advice which virtually always has a tax element. Although possessing the CFP® designation is desirable, we are willing to train someone with transferable skills with the intent that they will take the CFP® exam through the accelerated/challenge path for CPAs and lawyers. We envision that this position will be dedicated about half to tax compliance and planning and half to personal financial planning, including retirement planning, cash flow forecasting, distribution sourcing, executive compensation consulting, estate planning, and possibly even an investment advisory role for someone with that background and interest.

We are a collegial 14-person firm serving over 300 interesting and appreciative clients with investment wealth in excess of $650 million. Our clients come to us through client and professional referrals and we are not sales oriented. We are located in newly renovated modern offices on the 22nd floor of the Town Square Tower in the business center of downtown St. Paul. Compensation is competitive and commensurate with experience and we offer a full spectrum of benefits.   Please submit your resume and letter of interest by email to
