Compliance / Corporate Counsel at LeapTheory.com
Leap Theory is an already successful, fast growing adtech upstart that serves the consumer lending industry. It was founded by people looking to build a better workplace. Four things drive us: ethics, continuous improvement, gratitude, and teamwork. Yes, we aim for top performance in our industry. But, HOW we get there matters more. We understand your time is important. Who you spend it with is important. What you apply your talents to is important. Thanks for considering applying your time and talents to our company and learning what makes us - we believe - very different from other high performance tech companies.
We’re currently looking to add a Compliance Manager to our legal team. You’d report to the executive team and co-founders. Our team is excited about training and growing the hired candidate to become a world-class compliance professional who will manage ever increasing responsibilities.
You’ll work with other dedicated employees and executives at our ocean view office in Brentwood, located on a walkable, transportation-friendly street on San Vicente Boulevard near great restaurants. There are also many other benefits on top of competitive pay. We don’t think you’ll be disappointed.
Your initial duties will consist of, in order of percentage of time you’ll devote to them:
1) Supplier & Customer Compliance Reviews - you’ll be trained to collaborate with different roles (e.g., marketing, sales, engineering, executives) to assess whether new and current suppliers and customers meet our compliance standard, collaborate with different roles.
2) Continuing Education - you’ll receive ongoing internal training and need to keep your knowledge of applicable laws and regulations up-to-date through your own research, external resources, external trainings, and external conferences.
3) Process Improvement - you’ll work with the team to continually improve our compliance system, including documenting current system components (e.g., policies, procedures), identifying opportunities for improvement, mapping out an improvement plan, and executing that plan.
4) Training - you’ll share your growing knowledge of compliance laws and rules by supporting the company to provide role-based trainings to all employees and executives.
Regardless of your experience (or even if you have little to no relevant experience), we’re looking for someone who has these natural aptitudes.
1) Precise - you notice when anyone in the office gets a haircut. You read long documents and quickly pick out grammatical errors, inconsistent language, major points, and supporting facts.
2) Organized - friends have asked you to plan their wedding. You live by your calendar and create calendar items for travel time to/from events. Making lists that look like a college course outline makes you happy.
3) Language or numbers nerd - your friends ask you to edit their resumes or help them create financial spreadsheets. You took advanced writing classes or advanced math classes, or you currently develop these skills on your off time.
4) Adaptably systematic - you enjoy routine, but can use your emotional and analytical skills to adapt to new situations. You quickly assess how best to proceed and develop a system that allows you to lower the mental burden needed to continually perform well in any new situation.
5) Similar values - we’re looking for complements, not clones. But we are looking for someone who also highly values ethics, continuous improvement, gratitude, and teamwork.
In order of relevance, we’re looking for the following experience:
1) Compliance, legal, or auditing experience for adtech, fintech, or other regulated tech companies.
2) Compliance, legal, or auditing experience for regulated, non-tech companies that manage a lot of consumer data.
3) You’ve been successful in other roles, requiring the aptitudes outlined above, for adtech, fintech, or other regulated tech companies.
4) You’ve been successful in other roles, requiring the aptitudes outlined above, for regulated non-tech companies that manage a lot of consumer data.
5) You have no relevant professional experience, but have other experience showing you’ve successfully applied the aptitudes outlined above to solving real problems.
