Interviews and onboarding are conducted virtually, a part of being a distributed-first company.

We are looking for a passionate SOX Risk and Compliance Manager who is full of ideas to make valuable contributions to a high growth, innovative software company! Do you want to be a true business partner and not a "check the box" compliance manager? If so, this may be the perfect role.

Key Responsibilities:

  • Act as the subject matter expert on SOX Compliance and advise cross-functional project leads in designing, developing and implementing internal controls
  • Advise senior management on approaches & methodology to optimize the internal controls portfolio focusing on prevention and automation
  • Partner with Internal Audit and business functions to proactively identify and assess compliance risks and guide business teams to remediate deficiencies
  • Facilitate reporting on risks, findings, mitigation plans, and controls performance
  • Contribute to risk and compliance awareness activities
  • Drive effective teamwork, communication, collaboration, and commitment across multiple groups with multiple priorities
  • Always look for opportunities to improve processes and collaboration, in order to increase team output and team health

On the first day, we'll expect you to have:

  • 5-7 years of experience within technical Technology Risk Management, Compliance, Information Security or Internal/External Auditing
  • Experience leading SOX compliance in large-scale transformation projects (e.g. ERP implementation, M&A, RPA, etc.) in the software development business
  • Experience with control and risk frameworks, performing risk assessments, designing controls and overseeing mitigation projects
  • Good verbal and written communication skills, especially communicating across all levels and cross functional teams

Preferred but not required:

  • Consulting/Audit experience is preferred
  • Dual experience in SOX compliance across ITGC and Business controls
