Compliance Program Manager

| Chicago
Bento for Business was founded on the basis that traditional banks are failing small businesses. From limited online and mobile options to narrow product sets, legacy practices and platforms are not meeting the needs of today’s business owners. As such, Bento’s vision is to be the modern business banking platform for SMBs. The company’s first killer app solves the $3.7 trillion employee expense abuse problem -- a card-based digital spend management solution enabling businesses to proactively manage and control employee spending at the point of sale, prior to purchase.
Bento is growing, and we’re seeking to hire an experienced Compliance Program Manager. This position will be focused on enhancing and managing our Compliance program. You’ll stay abreast of current financial regulations, proactively identify pain points and gaps in existing policy frameworks and work across the company to create, plan, and execute innovative solutions. You will drive cross-functional initiatives to continuously enhance our compliance policies and systems, while balancing the need to support a rapidly growing business. You’ll develop efficient compliance processes and work with our Operations, Product, and Engineering teams to implement these across the organization.

  • Manage compliance relationship with our bank partners and auditors

  • Conduct risk assessments and manage compliance monitoring in accordance with best practices.
  • Stay up to date and adapt to regulatory changes or emerging industry best practices; raise awareness of trends, emerging issues, remedial actions or enhancements to the program
  • Monitor the health of our Compliance Operations, including producing metrics and reporting to management and other key stakeholders
  • Work across the organization with marketing, sales, and product in a compliance advisory capacity.

  • Strong written and verbal communication skills; at ease communicating and presenting to Senior-level management (internally and externally)
