This is a strategic, highly visible role that will work with the senior leadership team on company-wide legal matters including but not limited to regulatory compliance, contracts, vendor agreements, financings, transactions, etc.

Your Responsibilities

  • Ensure compliance with all FinTech regulation, including tracking changes to applicable laws, regulations and guidance from state and federal agencies to ensure ongoing compliance
  • Assess and drive federal and state licensing (in particular, state money transmitter licenses), regulatory inquiries and examinations
  • Provide Transactional/M&A support, as needs arise

  • Excellent verbal, written communication, and presentation skills

Here's a bit about our culture

  • We’re a growing team: Fully distributed across the world, Slack and video conferencing are huge here.
  • We’re very flat: Leadership is desired and encouraged; we hire people who care about the product they are working on.
  • We’re Bitcoiners: We find solutions that encourage Bitcoin principles. Many of us pull double duty alongside our main job, producing content for Bitcoin newsletters, podcasts, social audio platforms, and YouTube shows, and spend some of the day on Twitter educating the masses. We love Bitcoin, and it comes through in our daily chats, meetings, and actions.

Join us, become a Swan!
