in Remote

Logo for Human Interest

Human Interest is on a mission to ensure that people in all lines of work have access to retirement benefits. 

Nearly half of all working Americans are not saving enough for their future. Too often it’s because they are employed by a company that doesn’t offer a retirement plan. Human Interest is changing that by making it affordable and accessible for small and medium-sized businesses to offer employees a path to financial independence through retirement savings.

The ERISA Legal Counsel role will join Human Interest’s growing Legal & Compliance team, reporting to our Senior Legal Counsel, Product & Compliance. We are seeking an ERISA attorney with at least six years of legal experience to join our existing team.

  • Provide legal support to the client relations teams  and manage and resolve legal issues related to client engagements
  • Analyze transactions for compliance with ERISA/other applicable fiduciary laws
  • Negotiate and draft legal agreements and other legal documentation
  • Assist with disputes, inquiries, and subpoenas

What you bring to the role

  • JD from an accredited law school and state bar admission required
  • Top-tier law firm or financial services firm experience, with a strong preference for prior in-house recordkeeping experience
  • Experience with:
    • Tax and ERISA requirements applicable to qualified retirement plans, specifically 401(k) and 403(b) plans
    • Analyzing and communicating changes/developments in the laws applicable to retirement plans
    • The legal compliance aspects of servicing clients and their retirement plans, especially from the recordkeeping point of view
    • General knowledge of IRA custodial and administration requirements is  also desirable
  • A demonstrated track record of skillfully being able to manage a diverse set of issues in partnership with operations, sales, customer service, and product and engineering teams
  • Demonstrable leadership skills and the ability to work with a diverse team of legal and other professionals
  • The confidence and interpersonal and networking skills necessary for effective interaction with both internal stakeholders and external parties
  • Strong analytical, organizational, communication and client service skills
  • The ability to work autonomously, quickly adapt, a track record of providing sound and practical advice and solutions, and a mindset to work within a fast-growing startup environment
