  • Develop decision-making frameworks, perform and oversee industry and market analysis, and communicate progress and measures of success to senior leadership and key internal stakeholders.

You’ll sweep us off our feet if:

  • You have experience with Mergers and Acquisitions and/or new business development.

  • You have experience implementing legal and compliance controls (including technology) to enforce regulations and other legal requirements.

  • You have experience working with, and knowledge of, eCommerce legal and compliance matters, including experience with US consumer protection, product safety and related laws and regulations.

  • You have experience working with various regulatory agencies such as FTC, EPA, ATF, FCC, etc.

  • You’re a self-starter, that can operate in a complex collaborative corporate structure with multiple stakeholders and a high degree of professional ethics and integrity.

  • You have strong new business development experience, bringing businesses to life, and growing them from launch into the next phases.

  • You have a proven record of success as it relates to translating operational concepts into scalable implementation and working collaboratively and cross-functionally.

  • You’re organized, disciplined, and can manage multiple projects simultaneously.

  • You have strong relationship orientation, and an ability to tackle tough challenges and deliver results.

  • You have outstanding communication skills and are a master at making complex subjects easily understood.

  • You have high standards and can hold project contributors accountable.

  • You have  experience in Legal or Regulatory Compliance teams.

You’ll make an impact by:

  • Developing vision and strategy for the development of policies, procedures and projects for the New Business Development Team compliance program by benchmarking industry best practices; evaluating and reporting on key performance metrics; and assessing and directing the cross-functional development of policies to ensure organizational alignment across the enterprise.

  • Enabling business functions by driving technology development; leading cross-functional teams to incorporate an eCommerce compliance focus; analyzing complex emerging technology and operational requirements; and evaluating U.S. eCommerce initiatives and best practices prior to release to our customers or associates.

  • Performing applicable compliance risk assessments (including impact, likelihood and ratings) and addressing gaps; monitoring, facilitating, and/or supporting legal, compliance and risk mitigation for audits; and coordinating with legal and other stakeholders to respond to regulatory and other investigations.

  • Cultivating an environment where associates respect and adhere to company standards of integrity and ethics by integrating these values into all programs and practices; developing consequences for violations or non-compliance; and supporting the Open Door Policy.

Minimum qualifications:

  • 7+ years of experience in legal and/or compliance

  • 2-4 years’ experience working in an eCommerce company or eCommerce environment
