Vercel’s platform provides the speed and reliability to create at the moment of inspiration. In other words, our friction-less, real-time deployment makes it possible to start working on projects immediately — anywhere in the world.

Our globally-distributed team works asynchronously to lead the React ecosystem and serve developers at large companies. We pride ourselves on our diversity, shared urgency to iterate, team-oriented decision making, and drive to dig deep.

About the Role:

The ideal candidate would have substantial experience in either law firm and / or in-house roles (SaaS preferred)!

  • Develop policies, templates and processes and leverage systems and tools to improve efficiency and maturity.

  • Collaborate with Vercel’s Operations teams on procurement, compliance and controls, helping the company scale and mature responsibly

  • Manage outside counsel and specialists, always seeking to find the best balance regarding cost and expertise and associated risks

  • Manage Legal Operations, bringing in efficiency and process to the company and managing and triaging the legal inbox

  • Report to VP of Finance

About You:

  • Experience in B2B / enterprise companies and working with Revenue Operations

  • A minimum of 8 years of experience at a law firm or in-house roles (SaaS preferred)

  • Clear communicator, who can land messages across a wide variety of audiences

  • Well-versed in how businesses operate with financial acumen, ability to strike a sensible and practical balance between legal risks and business objectives

  • High degree of professional ethics and integrity

  • Excellent judgment and analytical skills

  • Admission to bar of good standing

Bonus If You:

  • Experience at a SaaS software company, and/or at a venture-backed company

  • Experience with any of the following technologies: Carta, Contract management system, Salesforce, Zoom, Google Drive, Slack

Benefits:

  • Competitive compensation and stock options

  • Flexible working style - 100% remote, with teammates located throughout the globe

  • Learn and Grow - we provide mentorship and send you to events that help you build your network and skills
