Innovative Portfolio Companies


Gusto (formerly ZenPayroll)
Benefits Product Compliance

Would you like to work at a fast-growing SaaS company? Are you interested in the health, benefits, and insurance industries? Do you get excited about navigating compliance in a highly regulated industry? Join our Compliance Team to build and support employer benefits products!

We are passionate about using innovative technology and excellent service to elevate the health and benefits experience of small business owners and their employees. Each team member is a true owner and makes a tremendous impact every day. You will use your project-management skills to streamline compliance and ensure that our internal processes and products keep us and our clients safe. You shine in a fast-paced environment and thrive on the success of a job well done. You are the type of person who will leave no stone left unturned when auditing internal systems and conducting research. When you say “I’ll take care of it” we know it’ll be done well.

Here’s what you’ll do day-to-day:

  • Create and audit internal processes and products to ensure we are exceeding all regulatory standards.
  • Establish and review relationships with third parties. This means reviewing third parties regularly for continued adherence to our safety and security standards and to secure any information shared with them.
  • Take ownership of research and support for products that are subject to ERISA, PPACA, HIPAA, and other HHS, DOL, and tax requirements. In addition to Federal requirements you are also interested in and have experience navigating state regulations as well.
  • Educate our employees (from operations to engineering) on compliance protocols and make sure they understand them well enough to translate them to processes and products that solve these requirements for thousands of employers across the nation.
  • Constantly analyze, refine, and iterate on internal processes to make them simpler and more efficient.

Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • 2-5 years of experience navigating compliance in health insurance (HIPAA, ERISA, ACA, state Departments of Insurance, etc)
  • Experience working with health and/or insurance software products
  • Approach problems with a passion for reducing operational inefficiencies and pain points
  • Experience working collaboratively with cross-functional teams in a start-up environment
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills
  • Experience auditing technology platforms
  • Juris Doctorate, Paralegal, or other Compliance-related Certificate
