Job Overview

In the fast-paced world of crypto, we must memorialize our relationships in ways that stand the test of time. We need a sharp legal drafter and negotiator to assist with the documentation of our brokerage and trading-related services - all missions critical to our operations. In addition, we need someone with the intellect and curiosity to help us build new business lines.

As Trading & Commercial Counsel you will:

  • Own contract drafting and negotiations for brokerage and other trading relationships and third party risk management from a legal perspective.
  • Draft and negotiate a wide range brokerage/trading contracts, including master services agreements, liquidity provider agreements, NDAs, vendor agreements, strategic relationship agreements, and more - our business and products are always evolving!
  • Build a close relationship with the sales, product, engineering, operations, compliance, and other teams to collaborate closely in developing new products, improving existing businesses, identify and resolve legal issues, structure complex agreements, and improve efficiency.

You may be a fit for this role if:

  • You have a J.D. degree and 3+ years of experience.
  • You have a background in drafting and negotiating a range of commercial contracts, including experience with brokerage or other trading-related agreements, and are comfortable facing highly-sophisticated institutional clients and counterparties.
  • You have demonstrated experience working closely with the business and other cross functional teams to build new products, solve complex issues, and strategize growth.
  • You have enthusiasm for crypto and a foundational understanding of the crypto industry and applicable laws/regulations both in the US and internationally.
  • You demonstrate close attention to detail and the ability to manage multiple projects.
  • You have the ability to execute with moderate supervision and balance commercial and legal realities.

Although not a requirement, bonus points if:

  • You have experience with ISDAs (highly preferred!)
  • You were emotionally moved by the soundtrack to Hamilton, which chronicles the founding of a new financial system. :)
