Overview

DriveTime Needs an Insurance Regulatory Compliance Counsel…

Think practicing law should be more than billable hours and timesheets?

Want to work with incredibly talented (and humble) people?

Want to work on incredibly diverse and wide-ranging legal topics?

Want to work in a fast pace, quick decision making, and energetic environment?

Want to do real work that impacts our business and our customers every day?

If you answered yes, read on.  If not, no worries, we are not for everyone.

Headquartered in Tempe, Arizona, DriveTime is the largest privately owned used car sales and finance company in the country (yes, we are THAT good)! With more than 130 dealerships, 3 operations centers and 15 reconditioning centers across the nation, our 4,000+ employees are focused on getting the right customer in the right car, at the right terms.  With over 25 years of industry experience, and our dedication to streamlining the purchase process, we're redefining what it means to buy and finance a used car.

At DriveTime, we are most than just a used car dealership.  We have an entire family of brands that consist of auto retail but finance, warranties, ancillary products and insurance.  BlueShore is the insurance arm of the organization where we underwrite insurance products uniquely tailored for our affiliates and their consumers who purchase, lease and/or finance used automobiles.

That’s Nice, But What’s the Job?
