We’re looking for a tech-savvy Legal Counsel to partner Status into its growth phase. Status has always put compliance first, and you’ll be a trusted advisor to our founders and team members, helping us navigate the diverse global legal implications of our research and development of blockchain technology.
You will provide practical and well-informed advice in response to complex and rapidly changing conditions, working autonomously to drive business projects as our standalone legal lead.

- Research and provide legal steering on Status’s worldwide business plans, projects and product launches
- Own all legal needs and requirements of Status, calling in specialist external law firms as needed, and manage the relationships we already have with a number of external counsels
- Draft, negotiate and execute commercial agreements with service providers, partners, and contractors
- Analyze and identify legal and regulatory risks and implications and help Status meet its compliance obligations
- Take the lead on corporate law matters; contribute to Status’s corporate legal structuring
- Answer internal as well as external legal and regulatory requests
- Manage and organize all legal documentation
- Implement and maintain relevant policies and procedures.
[Don’t worry if you don’t meet all of these criteria, we’d still love to hear from you anyway if you think you’d be a great fit for this role!]
