About Attain

Built for consumers and companies, alike

In a world driven by data, we believe consumers and businesses can coexist. Our founders had a vision to empower consumers to leverage their greatest asset—their data—in exchange for modern financial services. Built with this vision in mind, our platform allows consumers to access savings tools, earned wages and rewards without cost or hidden fees. In exchange, they give permission to use their real-time data for research, insights and targeted advertising.

At Attain, your contribution will help us build a more equitable and efficient data sharing ecosystem—whether helping consumers access modern financial services or businesses leverage data to achieve better outcomes. You’ll have the opportunity to work directly with hands-on leaders and mission-driven individuals everyday.

What you’ll do

  • Regulatory Relationship Management: Establish and maintain effective relationships with regulatory agencies, serving as the main point of contact for compliance-related matters
  • Regulatory Compliance: Stay up-to-date with changes in applicable laws and regulations and ensure the organization's compliance with them. Proactively identify compliance risks and develop strategies to mitigate them
  • Monitoring and Auditing: Establish monitoring and auditing mechanisms to assess the effectiveness of the compliance program and identify areas for improvement. Conduct regular compliance audits and investigations as necessary
  • Reporting and Documentation: Maintain accurate and complete records of compliance activities, incidents, and remediation efforts
  • Cross-Functional Collaboration: Collaborate across departments to ensure consistent interpretation and application of compliance requirements across the organization

  • 7+ years of relevant legal experience with an in-house legal team or law firm
  • Bachelor's degree in Business, Law, or a related field and a Juris Doctor (JD) from an accredited law school, as well as an active membership in a state bar association
  • Strong knowledge of relevant laws, regulations, and industry standards, such as GDPR, SOX, CCPA, etc.
  • Experience in conducting compliance audits, investigations, and remediation efforts
  • Excellent understanding of compliance risk management, including the ability to identify and mitigate compliance risks effectively
  • Excellent communication skills, with the ability to clearly communicate complex issues
