    The Company


    Common Securitization Solutions (CSS) is seeking an experienced Risk Management-Infrastructure Manager to join our team of talented professionals in Bethesda, Maryland.

    How many times in your career do you get the opportunity to do something that’s never been done? To create something that will change an entire industry? CSS is building the Common Securitization Platform to issue and manage mortgage securities. We’re looking for people who can walk in two worlds – a start-up environment where development is collaborative and rapid; and a production environment where we run and monitor the performance of the platform. Longer-term, this platform could serve the entire US housing finance industry. Sound transformative? It is. Come join us and help create something remarkable.


    Job Information

    We are looking for a strong Risk Management Manager who has had experience working in risk management and is excited to jump in and help build out the 1st line Risk Management function at CSS.

    This role will have the responsibility for engaging with leaders across the Infrastructure Operations team on matters ranging from implementation of risk policy to monitoring of 1st line control execution and management of remediation activities. The position will work closely with both ERM and the business areas to ensure there is a consistent and common approach to implementation of risk management activities. This role will report into the CRO but have direct interaction with the first line business leadership and will be responsible for leading and liaising between the business and ERM.

    A successful candidate should have the aptitude to drive execution and facilitate and coordinate cross functional discussions. They should provide effective challenge and help identify emerging risks and subsequent mitigation strategies. Partnership and collaborative problem solving will be critical for success in this role.

    At CSS, we are looking for passionate and visionary leaders. We are on the cusp of moving from a start-up environment to a more predominant “run the business” production operations structure and are looking for leadership who can operate in both worlds.   If you are a seasoned Risk Manager who is excited to be part of developing and evolving a strong Risk Management culture and practice, CSS is the place for you.
