This is a rare opportunity to be on the ground floor of a dynamic, fast-growing, and well-funded fintech company and to gain exposure to a variety of practice areas and legal issues.

The Associate General Counsel will work closely with and counsel and advise operations and product teams on regulatory requirements, compliance, product development, best practices, and industry standards.

They must have a J.D. from an accredited law school and be licensed to practice law in the United States.

This attorney must have a sense of humor and the ability to work in both a team environment and independently with minimal supervision at a fast-paced and growing fintech company. This role can be remote or work from one of the company’s offices in NY or SF.

This is an outstanding opportunity for the right attorney to take on interesting work and assume a great deal of responsibility at a fast-paced, collaborative, creative, high-growth and disruptive company. Our client offers competitive compensation, including equity and comprehensive benefits. Title and compensation package will reflect the successful candidate’s number of years of relevant experience.
