Kickstarter, PBC is seeking an experienced General Counsel to join our team.
About the Team
Kickstarter is a Public Benefit Corporation, & our mission is to help bring creative projects to life. We measure our success as a company by how well we achieve that mission, not by the size of our profits. In our charter, we spell out our mission, our values, & the commitments we have made to pursue them.
About the Role
We're looking for an experienced, business-minded strategic General Counsel to drive strategy & refresh our legal function. Reporting directly to the CEO, you will serve as a member of the leadership team & support the board of directors & other senior management.
This role is unique in nature as you will be expected to not only build, manage, & lead the legal team, but also roll up your sleeves to implement legal & compliance processes from scratch.
Specifically, matters will include advising on labor & employment (bonus if you have experience working with a unionized workforce), tax, international expansion, litigation, & real estate.
