Compliance Specialist, Screening

Legal Santa Barbara, California


Hi, We’re AppFolio.

We’re innovators, changemakers, and collaborators. We’re more than just a software company – we’re a cloud-based powerhouse that creates products to make our customers’ lives easier. We’re revolutionizing the way people do business, and we want your ideas, your enthusiasm, and your passion to help us keep on innovating.

We love where we work, and you can, too.

We are looking for an exceptional Compliance Specialist to join our dynamic legal and compliance team, specializing in tenant screening.  

What You’ll Do

You will own our screening compliance program: managing, drafting, reviewing and amending a suite of policies and procedures. You will work closely with the legal and compliance team and business units to deeply understand the product and services we offer in the tenant screening space, the teams that support tenant screening and our compliance requirements. These relationships and knowledge will support your ability to create and maintain relevant policies and procedures.  You will obtain (or already have) a deep understanding of the Fair Credit Reporting Act and other relevant regulations which will allow you to deeply understand compliance requirements and build these into culturally aligned, actionable policies and procedures.

You will also develop a deep understanding of tenant screening to enable you to support our teams that work on screening. You will be the first point of contact for escalations and questions, helping teams understand how to work with customers and consumers compliantly and effectively.

You’ll also help out with other screening compliance related projects when needed!

What We’re Looking For

  • Commitment; Flexibility and Adaptability: Have a willingness to truly understand a complex and rapidly-evolving business.  Quickly adjust and re-prioritize based on changing conditions and opportunities. 
  • Communication: Communicate clearly in a focused and succinct manner with a message that is appropriately tailored for the specific audience. 
  • Proactive, Persistent: Take the initiative without necessarily being told what to do and how to do it; have the tenacity to get it done. 
  • Teamwork and Enthusiasm: Be collaborative, passionate and positive, especially in high stakes or stressful situations. 
  • Urgency:  Have a bias toward action and the ability to work under high demand and within compressed time frames.

Must Haves

  • Bachelor’s degree
  • Legal and/or compliance background or experience 
  • Experience with drafting complex legal documents, policies and/or corporate communications; excellent legal writing skills

Good to Have 

  • Experience working with the Fair Credit Reporting Act and in the background screening industry preferred (tenant background screening experience ideal)
