Our mission is to enable global financial interoperability by removing regulatory and technical barriers for entrepreneurs and enterprises to create excellent financial products. Ponto is backed by top-flight investors with the expertise, experience, and enthusiasm to help Ponto reach its goals.

We are looking for a skilled, versatile, and collaborative attorney to serve as our Commercial Counsel. You will be responsible for drafting and negotiating a variety of agreements laying the groundwork for Ponto’s mission including strategic partnerships, licensing, vendor relationships, business development, and platform services. You will draft or improve our form agreements, internal documents, and legal processes that help us scale globally. You will also support Ponto’s efforts in regulatory licensing, privacy, securities, compliance, and product strategy. This role is for someone who can handle our contracts, while expanding their skillset into several other areas of law at the intersection and eventual combination of fintech and crypto. This is not siloed work -- you will have your hands in all parts of the business.    

You might be a good fit if:

  • You have 4-6 years of experience as a practicing corporate, M&A, finance, or otherwise transactional attorney. Some in-house experience, is a plus, but not required. JD and Bar membership required.
  • You have been the lead in drafting and negotiating strategic agreements, transactions or SaaS contracts for a technology company.
  • You have an interest in working as an operator as much as you do a lawyer. You’re willing to use your legal skills and training to execute business opportunities end to end.
  • You enjoy working collaboratively and cross-functionally, but can be decisive and move quickly when needed and appropriate.
  • Interested in cryptocurrency, blockchain, and fintech and willing to become an expert.   You don’t take yourself too seriously, but you do take significant pride in your work, and prioritize executing quickly in a fast-paced environment.
  • Good vibes all around.

  • Platinum health insurance
  • Untracked vacations policy with an annual minimum
