We are looking for hard-working, talented, and collegial people to help achieve this vision. Join us and say, “Hello future.”
About the role:
As Hedera’s Counsel, you will work on a wide variety of legal and governance matters. You’ll draft agreements and governing documents, negotiate with counter-parties, draft and advise on policies, research evolving areas of law and regulation relating to web3 networks, strategize about how best to comply with regulations in an uncertain and evolving regulatory environment, liaise with outside counsel, and work with Hedera’s Council members to enable effective decentralized governance.
You’ll work closely with (and report to) Hedera’s General Counsel and be a vital member of a small but powerful team that reports to a council of leading global organizations. You’ll be able to make meaningful contributions and develop a wide variety of legal skills while working on issues at the forefront of technology, commerce, and the law. There’s a lot of exciting work, but, given the small team, you also have to be willing to roll up your sleeves and do non-glamorous work.
