Are you an accomplished leader with a strong background in Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance? At Themis, we are bringing to life our vision of making Governance accessible and easy for everyone, from BaaS to Fintechs to regulated industries and beyond! We are modernizing Governance from antiquated workflows typically run on spreadsheets and emails and building beautiful and intuitive software to make it easier for organizations to adhere to governance requirements and regulations.

We're looking for motivated, self-starters who are curious, willing to learn, embrace a challenge, and have the desire to learn!

What you will contribute

As the Head of Compliance Strategy at Themis, you will play a pivotal role in shaping and driving the compliance strategy for our business. You will be responsible for building and nurturing relationships with prospective customers, understanding their needs, and effectively conveying the value proposition of our software solutions. This position offers an exciting opportunity to join a dynamic team and contribute to the expansion of our innovative platform in the governance and risk management space.

What we’re looking for

  • Work with the CEO to formalize a compliance strategy.

  • Assist Sales and Customer Success with implementation and onboarding of new and existing customers.

  • Work directly with customers to make sure they get the most out of Themis.

  • Create a Themis Advisory Board of thought leaders.

  • Facilitate webinars and lead general compliance training as well as Themis training for clients.

  • Provide guidance and support to other departments on compliance-related matters.

  • Foster a culture of compliance and ethics throughout the organization.

  • Collaborate with the product development team to ensure that new products and features meet compliance standards.

  • Develop and implement a compliance training program for employees at all levels of the organization.

  • Track and report on key compliance metrics to measure the effectiveness of the compliance program.

Who you are

  • 6-10 years of GRC experience preferably in banking, financial services or a highly regulated industry.

  • Knowledge of ethical practices and standards in the financial services industry.

  • Superb verbal and written communication skills with a maniacal attention to detail.

  • Ability to independently advance projects with limited oversight and judgment to know when to seek supervision.

About us

Themis is democratizing governance and risk to make it work for companies rather than against them. We are solving the communication gap experienced by most companies that exist between internal departments and external partners by creating simple, intuitive software to monitor and share governance related controls.


  • We believe in people and give them every opportunity to grow.

  • We believe Themis will succeed when team members are given autonomy to solve problems creatively.

  • We encourage people to research and leverage innovative tools that can be applied to a traditionally sleepy industry.

  • We are focused on speed and quality and are not afraid to cut scope to uphold our standards. To achieve these standards we use modern tools with minimal process and focus on the problems of the day.

  • And most importantly, we want you to bring your personality to work and have fun!
