Job Details

Affirm is reinventing credit to make it more honest and friendly, giving consumers the flexibility to buy now and pay later without any hidden fees or compounding interest. Affirm, Inc. proudly includes Affirm, PayBright, and Returnly.

Affirm’s Compliance team designs and implements a compliance program that proactively addresses regulatory requirements while also identifying potential compliance issues that may arise. Compliance program activities include advisory, training, testing & monitoring, reporting and oversight. Although a second line of defense, compliance partners with the business to support new products, markets, and initiatives, as well as issue identification, remediation plans and risk assessment. Compliance uses multiple data sources to enable informed decision making, strengthen controls and provide for better treatment of consumers.

Affirm is seeking a Compliance Lead to support its marketing compliance program, partnering with Affirm’s Marketing organization to enable compliant marketing. Compliance plays a fundamental role in growing the company's markets and products! We target OKRs and provide subject matter expertise that protects consumers and improves the customer experience.

  • Meet frequently with cross-functional partners to steward marketing compliance requirements and guide the implementation of merchant and direct marketing.

  • Identify, document and optimize critical processes to enable scale, conduct risk assessments, oversee the remediation of systemic issues, and meet the reporting and QA needs of Affirm's bank partners.
  • Mentor and develop your direct reports, building frameworks to help them operate consistently with the other members of the Marketing Compliance team.
What We're Looking For
  • Bachelor's degree or equivalent experience.
  • 5+ years of professional work experience, including 3+ years in a regulatory compliance advisory role.
  • 1+ year(s) of people management experience.
  • Experience working in fast-paced, ambiguous environments.
