As a key hire to the legal and compliance teams of a growing venture capital firm, this role will start with a very broad set of responsibilities, so it is built for an individual with experience supporting venture capital funds and seeking diversity in their work.

  • Project-manage various key legal and compliance projects;
  • Recognize and properly escalate significant matters;
  • Manage and maintain investment, entity formation, tax, and other legal and compliance filings and documentation.


Candidates are expected to have strong proven experience with:

  • Supporting investment management or venture investing legal functions.
  • Broad paralegal duties covering transactional, regulatory, employment, and enforcement matters.
  • Project management under tight deadlines.
  • Cross-functional collaboration throughout the business.
  • Google mail and Google docs.
  • Advanced written and verbal communication.
  • Work in a fast-paced environment, and ability to adjust priorities in response to unanticipated events.

  • Bachelor’s Degree.

  • Enjoy a fast-paced, dynamic work environment
  • Take initiative driving projects
