Full time Compliance Legal

Job Description

At Guideline, we’re helping Americans save for a better future. Guideline is the only 401(k) provider that doesn’t make money off participant savings. We only charge a low fee per participant to the Employers, in contrast to the asset-based fee model predominant in the industry, which eat away at participant savings.
By offering a full-stack solution that automates plan administration and compliance, the Guideline team is combatting what’s unfortunately become the retirement industry status quo — legacy providers have put profit over the interests of employees, abandoning the goal of the program in the first place -- to give employees the opportunity to save as much as possible for retirement.
We are seeking a motivated law student to join our team as a Fall or Spring semester law clerk.
