Senior Legal Counsel - Downtown San Fran, CA

Job Description:

Seeking a Senior Counsel to join our legal team in San Francisco. This role is an exciting opportunity for an experienced attorney to closely partner with and support the product and business development teams on product development, strategic partnerships, and regulatory compliance for our client's benefits solutions SaaS product.


- Provide business-focused advice to product development and engineering teams on how to apply legal and regulatory requirements to the development of our all-in-one HR SaaS and benefits solutions products.

- Partner with business development on strategic partnership agreements.

- Support product compliance audits to drive compliance throughout the product and customer lifecycle.

- Build and review product documentation, sales and marketing collateral, and customer support resources for new documents.

- Flexibly adapt to the needs of the moment no matter what they happen to be – we’re a start-up and everyone does a little bit of everything, from the most mundane to the sublime.

About you:

- You have 4-8 years direct subject matter experience in employment law, employee benefits, or financial products, and a well-rounded background in general commercial or corporate practice.

- You have a passion for distilling complicated legal concepts into simple, non-legalese, digestible bites.

- You are a creative and pragmatic problem solver and love developing guardrails for your clients to practically and effectively manage risk.

- You are exceptionally organized.

- You are comfortable with an ever-changing environment, able to take initiative and use your own judgment.

- You are an exceptional communicator and love to work with individuals at all levels of an organization.

- You’re flexible and able to adapt in a fast-paced, dynamic environment.

- You’re a highly creative and solution-oriented individual.

- You’re team oriented and able to build strong cross-functional relationships.

- You're up for the occasional business trip.

- You're licensed to practice law and in good standing in your state (preferably California).

Nice to have:

- Previous in-house experience strongly preferred, particularly in a SaaS start-up or benefits tech environment.
