Required Qualifications:

● Strong substantive experience with SEC reporting and stock exchange compliance;
● Deep knowledge of federal securities laws, particularly the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and regulations, and corporate governance standards and trends;
● Organized, hard-working and highly professional, with the ability to thrive in a fast-paced work environment, manage numerous projects simultaneously without
compromising attention to details, and exercise sound judgment;
● Ability to communicate professionally and effectively, write clearly and concisely, and manage people and tasks to deadline;
● Ability to represent the company professionally, thoughtfully and with the highest standards of integrity;
● Ability and confidence to present in front of c-level executives; and
● Excellent written and oral communication skills and a team-oriented approach are a must.

This is an opportunity to work with a great legal department and a superb manager. Opportunity to learn new substantive skills through internal rotation provides the successful candidate with unique career development opportunities. Wonderful culture, good work hours.
