Your responsibilities will include:

  • Collaborating with cross-functional stakeholders to review, assess, improve and shape our compliance-driven policies and procedures
  • Assisting as needed with contract management

  • A minimum of 4-6 years’ experience in legal operations or compliance preferred
  • You will seek to develop and maintain an understanding of data privacy and compliance requirements and best practices relevant to our operations
  • You thrive on bringing easy to access and implement processes through project management skills that will enable you to tackle a wide range of matters. The role is well-suited to a motivated self-starter that wants to broaden their skill set in a role that will continue to grow with the business.
  • Keen attention to detail and process management is essential. You love keeping projects organized, efficient, on task and on time.
  • Familiarity with process management tools that promote efficiency and transparency in workflow and process management
  • You will possess strong business judgment and the ability to determine when to resolve issues on your own, and when to escalate or seek guidance
  • Familiarity with contract terms and contract management will be helpful; this role may include some contract negotiation
  • While the ideal candidate will have a solid foundation in privacy & data protection, this role provides an opportunity to develop skills and experience, working with professionals dedicated to privacy, security and legal compliance
  • You are invigorated by the opportunity to be involved in all aspects of our developing compliance program, understating that this role will evolve

  • Ample paid time off as needed we are about getting things done, not face time
