Compliance Analyst



T. Elenteny Imports (“TEI”) is not your traditional alcoholic beverage importer and distributor. After spending years in the industry, our two founders combined their knowledge and experiences, creating (i) a company that offers the services they believed the industry needed and (ii) a vision of wanting to make a positive difference for small businesses. And you know what? That company and vision boomed.

TEI is a multifaceted, services business for wine, spirits, and beer importation and distribution. What does that actually mean? It means that we work with companies who discover awesome alcoholic beverage products (both foreign and domestic) and want those beverages to be available throughout the United States. We provide logistics, compliance, and accounting back office support for those endeavors, and we deliver top-notch customer service at every step of the way.     

You may have heard that the US is a complex maze of state regulations for alcohol. TEI’s Compliance Department plays a critical role in navigating that maze. This trusted team of professional problem solvers strives to get those beverages properly through the states’ regulations and into the various markets. The issues that arise are never the same (translation = you’re never bored), and we seek out resolutions that will spark smiles, allowing companies to build lesser-known brands throughout the US.

As a company, we hold ourselves out as a dynamic, experienced service provider dedicated to delivering innovative logistics solutions while pursuing the highest degree of integrity and transparency for our clients and for each other. We expect each TEI member to do the same.

Position Description

You will join our small group of miracle workers in the Compliance Department. You’ll work closely with our customers, your teammates, and the Compliance Manager on a multitude of state regulatory matters. You’ll also collaborate with TEI’s other departments to ensure best compliance practices. You don’t need to come to us knowing the alcoholic beverage rules; however, you must be confident that you can learn, interpret, and explain them. The Compliance team is responsible for clear, transparent, effective communication about complex issues. You must be able to identify and draw lines in the sand, sometimes delivering disappointing messages.

Compliance demands high organization, meticulous attention to detail, excellent research skills, the ability to comprehend and apply state regulations, and efficiency. Additionally, every position at TEI requires good judgment and a willingness to act as a professional liaison who exudes customer service. Everyone, including our fellow coworkers and surrounding neighbors, deserves our customer service oriented attitudes.
