About the role: We are hiring a Commercial Counsel for our growing legal team based in San Francisco HQ. You will be a primary partner to the business on general commercial matters and will negotiate the contracts that contribute to Chime’s success – from our biggest deals, to the bread and butter contracts that companies need to operate (which may, once we’re back in the office, include contracts for bread and butter). You have outstanding professional judgment and excellent communication, interpersonal, negotiation and drafting skills. You have an ability to anticipate and deliver on the needs of a dynamic and creative business, are eager to work with cross-functional teams, have the flexibility to manage a wide range of projects with a wide variety of people, and are comfortable advising senior business leaders (including executive level management).
This job cannot be performed remotely in the state of Colorado.
In this role, you can expect to:
Work closely with the business to negotiate, draft and review a broad range of commercial agreements, including partnership, master services, nondisclosure, referral, licensing, professional services and other commercial agreements
Create and improve forms and processes
Drive enterprise-level strategic initiatives and partnerships
Escalate issues, as appropriate, to other legal team members and collaboratively share potential risks and proposals with the executive team
To thrive in this role, you have:
A J.D. and active membership in at least one state bar
5+ years of combined law firm, government and/or in-house experience
Experience (and maybe even a strong fondness for) drafting, reviewing and negotiating various types of commercial agreements
Practical business judgment and problem-solving skills to be able to quickly understand the business’ needs and craft creative solutions
The ability to work collaboratively and develop positive relationships with internal partners and external stakeholders – with a sense of humor and resiliency, with limited direction, under tight deadlines, and while managing multiple priorities
Familiarity with fintech, technology, banking, or financial services companies
