  • Continually monitor developing legal and regulatory requirements to identify potential risks and partner with business leaders to ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations.


What You’ll Bring:

  • A curious mind eager to learn about our businesses and develop expertise in new and unfamiliar areas of law.
  • Dedication to Achieve’s mission to offer innovative products that help ordinary Americans improve their finances.
  • A business and solution-oriented approach to resolving issues and desire to collaborate with legal and business leaders.
  • Experience drafting and negotiating commercial and/or financial contracts.
  • Excellent interpersonal, communication, and analytic skills.
  • State bar member in good standing in any jurisdiction.
  • At least three to five years of legal experience, including law firm and/or in-house legal department experience.
  • Experience with sophisticated financial transactions, such as asset-backed securitizations and warehouse financings.
  • Familiarity with securities laws (e.g., the ’33 Act, the ’34 Act, and the ’40 Act) and other legal and compliance rules and regulations applicable to private investment funds.
  • Knowledge of consumer finance and privacy laws and regulations, including ECOA, TILA, FCRA, FDCPA, SCRA, EFTA, GLBA, CCPA, etc.
  • The preferred candidate would work out of our Tempe, Arizona, or San Mateo, California office, but remote opportunities will be considered.
