Our client, an industry leader in the FinTech space, has exclusively retained Hilltop Legal Recruiting to conduct a search for a Corporate Counsel position.
The company is a late-stage private SaaS company based in San Mateo, with an impressive global footprint. They are the industry leader in their space-account software financial technology. They have grown 200% year over year with a 98% customer retention rate, have over $5.0B in spend running through their platform, and support over 400 customers and 3,000,000 suppliers all over the world.
Position: This position will report directly to the General Counsel, and this attorney will be the #2 on the team and well-positioned for leadership as they continue to grow. The Corporate Counsel will be responsible for supporting the company’s sales, marketing, and procurement organization. The position will involve drafting and negotiating complex agreements ranging from financial services, professional services, software licenses, software as a service, development, support and supplier agreements, providing quick, concise and commercially focused legal advice in connection with such arrangements.
Experience: A minimum of 2+ years of legal experience in transactions is required, and our client will consider candidates coming from either an in-house or law firm environment. Ideally this attorney will be well-versed in technology and licensing, with a critical eye towards risk and regulatory issues. However, the General Counsel is willing to train a smart and motivated corporate or transactional attorney on relevant issues. Experience in privacy issues (esp. GDPR) is a plus. Because the job will involve a large amount of drafting, editing and writing, exceptional writing skills and attention to detail is an absolute necessity. The ideal candidate will be a confident self-starter with strong interpersonal and organizational skills and a demonstrated ability to effectively and proactively provide sound legal advice, exercise good business judgment, work with senior management and implement policies and processes on a cross-functional basis in a fast-paced environment.
Culture: Our client has been named by San Francisco Business Times as one of the Best Places to Work in the Bay Area two years in a row. The General Counsel has an open door and is passionate about mentoring attorneys so that they can achieve the ultimate career satisfaction and diversity of experience.
This is an outstanding opportunity for someone looking for a rewarding in-house legal role, in one of the hottest spaces in tech (payments). While this person would immediately work on commercial matters, this position represents a fantastic opportunity to grow your skillset and diversify your experience overtime. Compensation is competitive.
