About the role:

We are looking for a Corporate Counsel to help our growing legal team. You will work closely with other talented lawyers to support the Mesh and all of its projects.  We envision that the role will be general and multi-faceted but may eventually become more specialized, depending on your interests and strengths. The role will blur the lines between law and business; in addition to legal work, you will have the option to participate in building legaltech products that leverage our unique position at the forefront of law and technology.

Responsibilities:
  • We will give you as much responsibility as you can handle.
  • You will provide strategic legal advice, counsel and support to ConsenSys’s business leaders and dozens of internal and external projects. You will also participate in our regulatory efforts and initiatives.
  • You will review, draft, and negotiate a wide variety of documents related to commercial agreements, including investments, master services, licensing, professional services, marketing, and vendor agreements. You will also partner with relevant business stakeholders to achieve the short and long-term goals of the Mesh.

Requirements:
  • A JD or LLM from a leading accredited U.S. law school and a license to practice law in at least one U.S. jurisdiction.
  • 1-6 years of transactional or regulatory experience at a large reputable law firm and/or in-house.
  • Experience drafting and negotiating complex agreements is preferred.
  • Fluency in, or a strong desire to learn about, blockchain technology and related legal issues.
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills.
  • Hard-charging, innovative, and comfortable with high levels of responsibility.
  • Comfort with being self-directed and learning quickly with minimal training.  
  • Business judgment and ability to assess legal risk while providing practical advice.
  • Ability to effectively engage with internal and external business and legal counterparts.
  • Ability to manage multiple projects and matters simultaneously.
  • A proven academic or professional track-record demonstrating hard work, ambition and a dedication to self-improvement and excellence.

 

Here are some of the perks of being part of a unique organization like ConsenSys:
  • The forefront of a revolution. At ConsenSys we fundamentally believe that a next generation of technologies presents the opportunity to create a more just and equitable society.
  • A dynamic startup environment. ConsenSys is a thought leader in the blockchain space and we are absorbing a significant portion of the mindshare. This is both exciting and challenging, as we learn to scale our organization while adhering to the principles of decentralization.
  • Continuous learning. You’ll be constantly exposed to new languages, frameworks and ideas from your peers and as you work on different projects -- challenging you to stay at the top of your game.
  • Deep technical challenges. This entire ecosystem is about 10 years old. Ethereum itself is still a toddler. There is much work to be done before these platforms can scale to the order of millions or billions of users. ConsenSys is building the technology platforms that can get us to those next thresholds of scale.
