Compliance Associate

Human Capital

San Francisco, CA, USA

Full time

Nov 15

Human Capital is a venture firm for builders. We believe ambitious builders turn great ideas into great companies. We invest in founders, teams, and startups that share this mindset.

In the last 6 years, that mantra has led us to invest in 15 companies before they became unicorns, including Snowflake, Anduril, Livongo, and Brex (where we wrote the first check). We have over $1.3B in total capital committed and we've built a community of over 5,000 incredible, driven, ambitious builders.

Now we’re looking for a Compliance Associate to help write our next chapter.


The Compliance Associate will partner directly with the Compliance Lead, be part of the broader legal department, and be responsible for administrating many of Human Capital’s regulatory compliance obligations. This person will be responsible for supporting the Compliance Lead and others within the department in carrying out day-to-day operations, administrative responsibilities, and ad-hoc projects. This person will need to be systems oriented, have stellar attention to detail, and be willing to learn and scale with the organization.

If you’re inherently drawn to the startup world, intrigued by venture, and a builder at heart—we’d love to talk.


  • Serve as Human Capital’s primary administrator of ComplySci
  • Assist with regulatory filings, such as Forms ADV and PF
  • Assist with completion of annual compliance review
  • Manage AML/KYC process
  • Create international regulatory filing calendar
  • Research compliance questions and new regulatory rules
  • Help review marketing materials and LP communications
  • Manage compliance functional projects
  • Work cross-functionally with other internal teams
  • Take on administrative duties for compliance department including team time management, calendar scheduling, and drafting and maintaining decision logs
  • Be a thought partner on risk, response to regulations, compliance implementation, and systems


We expect you to have done some of these things, but it’s not required that you’ve done all of them

  • Minimum 1 year of experience as a Compliance Analyst or paralegal or legal secretary supporting either a Regulatory Compliance or Funds Formation group/practice
  • Strong project management and organization skills as well as exceptional attention to detail
  • Familiarity with ComplySci is a plus
  • Exceptional judgment and demonstrated ability to balance competing priorities while efficiently executing multiple projects


  • You are passionate about the law, technology, and the venture world. You’re bullish on the potential of technology and technologists
  • You have an ownership mentality. If a task is assigned to you, there is no question that you will get it done. You love taking initiative on projects with a high degree of responsibility and complexity
  • You are excited by a challenging, team-focused, intellectually-driven, and fast-moving environment. Every day is different and that thrills you
  • You’re equally passionate about the macro and the micro. You think big picture and you get in the weeds. You think about the long term and dive into the details. 
  • You love strategy and execution
