About the role

Snapdocs is a rapidly growing company backed by investors like Sequoia, Y Combinator, F-Prime and Tiger Global. We're an innovative team taking on the extensive mortgage market, bringing scalable and sophisticated software to a pillar of the US economy that still relies on fax machines and manila envelopes.

As our Information Security organization evolves, we are now expanding the team with a Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) Analyst to develop scalable programs that minimize the risk of data exposure, data misuse and ensures adherence to regulatory guidelines and industry best practices (i.e. NIST, ISO, GLBA, CCPA, GDPR) for Snapdocs products and operations. If you are looking for a high impact GRC position for a pre IPO unicorn company then we have a position for you…

Snapdocs takes security seriously. One of the most important things we do for our clients is to support them in their efforts to be secure and compliant while safely transferring customer information. Working with the Director of Governance Risk and Compliance, your first priority will be to support the implementation and deployment of GRC and third party risk management platforms. You will be tasked to design and implement cross functional GRC tools with automated workflows that scale and provide measurable improvements. A champion for continuous improvement, you strive to build and maintain solutions that uphold Snapdocs’ continuous compliance with a broad set of ever changing industry standards and regulations. Your day to day will span facilitating internal audits in support of industry regulations to publishing up-to-date security standards to responding to security and compliance queries from customers and internal collaborators all while contributing to our regulatory compliance roadmap. This position comes with autonomy and accountability as you will be leading multiple GRC projects through to completion with a set of guiding principles. Partnering with other GRC specialist,  you will be involved in rolling out effective security and privacy awareness training for the entire company.

Our ideal candidate will have spent the past 4+ years executing scalable Governance, Risk & Compliance initiatives (think compliance, audit, and risk processes) in a high growth B2B2C SaaS company. At least 2 years of your career have involved exposure to security assurance and trust frameworks (think PCI DSS, ISO2700x, NIST 800-53, SOC 2 - AICPA Trust Service Principles, CSA STAR, etc.) while staying on top of evolving privacy and data protection laws (CCPA, GDPR, GLBA Privacy and Safeguards Rules). Most recently, you can be found implementing certification roadmaps based on customer requirements and compliance documentation while ensuring committed assessments are delivered on schedule. You have developed broad knowledge of security controls at the systems, network, and application level making you the go-to person for solving security related problems with cloud-based services. This role works horizontally across the business to provide guidance for the design and implementation of key security controls, tools and technologies so it requires a high level of professionalism and phenomenal communication skills. We are a fully remote team today so any experience working with distributed teams will be beneficial. Bonus points for prior experience with mortgage regulatory compliance and industry best practices (e.g. RON, MISMO, etc.) but not a hard requirement. 

Colorado applicants: This role pays $100,000 - $115,000 annually plus equity in the company (pay for other locations may vary).



Snapdocs strongly values diversity and drive. We want to work with people of different backgrounds and different paths in life, and we trust our team to make smart decisions. This means we value independent work as well as collaboration. We provide outstanding benefits (listed below) and while we have hubs in both San Francisco and Denver, we're an extremely remote-friendly company with over a third of our staff outside of those two hubs!

Our benefits include (but are not limited to):

  • Excellent health, dental, and vision benefits
  • 401(k) with up to 4% company match
  • 16 weeks paid parental leave (regardless of gender)
  • Flexible time off policy

Why you should join Snapdocs

Snapdocs powers homeownership. Using technology, we’re building the connective tissue for an entire pillar of the U.S. economy: residential real estate.

Today, we’re working to perfect mortgage closings, but that’s only the beginning. If we succeed, more than five million families per year will gain clarity and transparency as they make the biggest financial decision of their lives: buying a home. Before Snapdocs, no one felt responsible or empowered to solve the problems we face every day we come to the office.

It's complex and difficult work, and the result is not an app we brag about at tech industry parties. Instead, we're making a difference and carefully building a team that shares our priorities—pragmatism, respect and empathy for our clients, and building honest products that improve all our users’ lives.
