- Help the wider Compliance function to communicate our compliance framework to all relevant stakeholders (internal and external).
- Engage cross-functionally (with groups such as Data, Engineering, Finance, Legal, Product, and Risk) to establish a thoughtful strategic and tactical approach to our licensing applications and related processes.
- Assist with special projects as needed, with the ability to work in a fast-paced, ever-changing environment.
