This job is based in our downtown Manhattan office.
We’re looking for a driven Corporate Counsel to develop our internal legal strategy, manage lending transaction documentation and oversee general corporate legal matters. The ideal candidate is someone with expertise around financial services/lending/derivatives space and is excited about being the first legal hire at a fast-growing crypto-focused startup.
If you’d be interested in helping grow the BlockFi business by negotiating deals with counterparties and helping us navigate the legal landscape, we want to hear from you. This position will report directly to our CEO and will play a critical role in working with the Crypto Prime and the Compliance teams.
The ideal candidate:
BlockFi has experienced incredible growth since our launch in August 2017. From raising over $75MM in debt and equity capital to helping thousands of clients (and growing!) do more with their crypto assets, we have established a dominant position as the debt and credit crypto market leader in the US. As we expand our product suite and geographic footprint, our addressable market will grow exponentially.
BlockFi’s leadership team has decades of experience in the traditional financial services and banking world, and we take a conservative approach to regulation that will position us well for sustainable long-term growth and expansion.
