The ideal candidate will possess at least 7 years of diverse compliance experience at a top law firm and in-house legal department.
The successful candidate will be responsible for a wide range of compliance matters including corporate, regulatory, HR, IP, and insurance.

• A JD with a State Bar membership (top academic credentials required)

• Experience implementing and monitoring a U.S. compliance program in a publicly traded company or fast growing private technology company
• Ability and desire to roll up your and go beyond the traditional boundaries of the role

The successful candidate will be responsible for the implementation of compliance programs in the U.S. This attorney will work closely with legal, finance, HR, business teams, managers and other leaders throughout the organization to embed the compliance culture and practices in daily operations and activities within the region. Other duties include the following:
• Communicating with and training employees on new policies and procedures as they relate to the organization’s compliance programs, and
• Performing periodic risk assessments on regulatory and legal matters and making compliance recommendations to executives

The Senior Compliance Counsel must be a hard worker, responsive, proactive, team player, critical thinker, intellectually curious and a creative problem solver. This attorney must be able to thrive in a high performance culture and high growth environment, prioritize and manage several projects at once and have passion for innovation.
This company is a rocket ship. Its visionary founder and superb management team possess a keen eye for disruption. They are moving swiftly to affect change and expand the organization. Heavyweight investors (SoftBank, Sequoia Capital, Lightspeed Venture Partners to name a few) have bet on company leaders to create one of the most successful hospitality companies in the world.
