Job Details

About the role:

You have operated at a senior and managerial level on previous legal teams. You have deep corporate and commercial experience and excel at reviewing and revising a wide variety of commercial and employment agreements. You are a solutions-oriented and positive attorney who thrives on small teams. You have excellent judgment and can run projects with minimal supervision while knowing when to escalate an issue. You work efficiently while caring deeply about the quality of your work product. You think strategically with respect to how a legal team should allocate its collective time, and how to prioritize proactive projects while ensuring reactive projects receive appropriate attention and are handled thoughtfully and completed on time. You take the initiative to improve and streamline systems and processes. (Note: this role will not immediately involve managing other members of the legal team).


  • Partner with the Head of Legal and Risk (to whom you'll report) on strategizing as to the legal team's use of internal and external resources and allocation of its members' time, and advise on highest priority projects and matters
  • Advise on a broad range of commercial legal and employment issues (including owning transactional work streams) and strategic decisions
  • Build and improve our standard form agreements and legal processes, including by automating processes where possible
  • Assist in managing corporate matters, including board/shareholder matters and equity plan administration

What success looks like 90 days in:

  • Your strategic input has helped the Head of Legal and Risk more efficiently and productively allocate responsibilities and matters among the other members of the legal team
  • You have created or streamlined repeatable processes used by the legal team
  • You have identified at least one problem with our document management system and have taken the initiative to correct it
  • You have created and own a system for ensuring the business's compliance with evolving rules and regulations, including with respect to licensing and data privacy/security
  • You are supporting the legal function and advising the business in other areas as needed, including with respect to the development and execution of new and existing products, initiatives, and lines of business

Need to have:

  • JD, admission to a state bar, and at least 7 years of relevant experience (preferably including at a top firm) in the U.S.
  • Bias toward action and solving (not just spotting) problems
  • Ability to take ownership of your work and manage projects independently
  • Excellent communication and writing abilities
  • Comfort and skill navigating complexity and ambiguity and working on a leanly staffed team
  • Ability to work autonomously and under pressure and meet tight deadlines
  • Agility and flexibility to take on new tasks and responsibilities when necessary to support the business and legal team's needs in a fast-moving, rapidly scaling, and dynamic tech company
  • Reliable coverage, as part of your daily schedule, of the hours of 2 pm - 6 pm PST, Monday through Friday

Nice to have:

  • Intellectual property expertise
  • A prior role in a corporate compliance department
  • Experience working cross-culturally and with diverse, global teams
  • Experience providing legal support for a variety of corporate transactions through all stages of the transaction lifecycle, including M&A, securities, and technology transactions
