By collecting and analyzing regulatory requirements, you’ll be helping to continue building and enhancing an entirely new insurance experience from the ground up as we rapidly grow and expand into new markets.

  • Assist in coordinating market conduct exams with functional areas
  • Opportunities for growth with the company into more senior roles with additional responsibilities

  • Proven ability to plan, manage and successfully execute projects of varying complexity
  • Experience with compliance or legal research software a plus (Wolters Klewer, Lexis Nexis, etc.)
  • Self-starter and ability to work independently
  • Ability to build relationships and leverage the expertise of business partners to achieve goals
