Job Description

Bynder is seeking a Legal Counsel to join our team. This role will (eventually) be based in our San Mateo office, but we will also consider candidates that want to work remotely within the Pacific time zone for the long term. Our ideal candidate is a self-motivated and confident attorney with excellent interpersonal skills, the ability to manage changing priorities, the ability to actively engage with customers using commercial sensitivity, and the desire to further improve efficiency in the legal process. You’ll join our close-knit global Legal Team, and your primary area of focus will be partnering with our US Sales Team to negotiate SaaS commercial contracts. As your expertise grows, you’ll partner with our Privacy, Partnerships, Customer Success, and Procurement Teams to help them achieve their fullest potential.

Key Responsibilities

  • Support the Sales Team by negotiating SaaS commercial contracts, balancing commercial considerations and Bynder’s legal interests

  • Support the Partnerships Team by negotiating partner and reseller contracts

  • Support the Privacy Team by advising on various data protection and security matters

  • Support the Customer Success Team by collaboratively responding to customer questions and requests

  • Support the Procurement Team by negotiating vendor contracts

  • Streamline our customer contracting process

  • Assist with general legal matters as needed

What you will bring to us:

  • JD with strong academic credentials

  • Active member of a state bar in the US

  • At least 4-5 years of practice, both in law firm and in-house roles

  • At least 2-3 years of experience negotiating SaaS commercial contracts and/or technology contracts

  • Working knowledge of GDPR, CCPA, and data protection

  • Experience with employment, IP, and bankruptcy law is a plus

  • Excellent drafting, negotiation, and communication skills

  • Experience in a fast-paced sales cycle with monthly and quarterly deadlines

  • Flexibility in an entrepreneurial environment – in a rapidly scaling company the legal role touches a lot of areas, and priorities and business needs can shift quickly

  • Ability to work with international colleagues and customers across various time zones

  • Ability to exercise good judgment in aligning interests across the organization

  • A positive attitude and a sense of humor

Additional Information

What You'll Get:

  • Competitive salary and 401(k) - dollar for dollar match up to 6%

  • Company paid medical and dental coverage

  • Unlimited vacation policy

  • Room to advance in a high-growth tech company

  • Office in Fort Point, near the burgeoning Seaport District

  • A light-hearted and fun work environment
