Oregon State Treasury is recruiting for the two Senior Internal Auditors. One position will be located in our Salem, Oregon location and one position which will be focused on investment audits will be located in our Tigard, Oregon location. These positions will report to the Chief Audit Executive.

OST is led by the State Treasurer, a constitutional officer and statewide elected official.

OST manages the daily investment of nearly $100 billion in assets, held in a diversified investment portfolio of domestic and international equities, fixed income securities, alternative and opportunistic investments, real estate and cash. Additionally, Treasury also maintains supporting functions including internal auditing, investment operations, legal, compliance, corporate governance and cybersecurity. The 140+ member OST staff takes great pride in their statewide and national reputation for progressive approaches to service delivery.
