Head of Legal – Europe at Wefunder
Amsterdam, NL
Wefunder is like Robinhood for pre-IPO startups. We're the largest funding platform that helps normal people make investments in startups they love. Over the past few years, we've helped fund over 900 startups with $450M+ including flying cars, space rockets, breweries, Hollywood studios, and cancer cures.
 
Now, we’re expanding to Europe and looking for a Head of Legal to help lead our European operations. We aim to sprinkle the Silicon Valley fairy dust across the world. Our goal is to inspire 20,000 more founders to get started, encourage them to think bigger, hone their pitch, help them focus, and give them the funding they need to prove to the "normals" in the world that they are not crazy (or, at least, crazy in a lucrative way). 
 
We launched in the US in 2012. Four years later the laws rolled out allowing us to operate, but it took until 2021 for them to be reformed to be workable. Luckily, the EU just rolled out new laws that are as good as the current US laws, so there’s a lot of potential to scale quickly. However, this also means a complex and rapidly changing regulatory framework, and plenty of uncertainty. We’re looking for someone who will thrive in this type of environment & inspire a team to do the same.

Our Dream Candidate

  • You are a lawyer or compliance professional who knows how to establish, operate and scale compliance processes.
  • You have previous experience guiding a startup through a messy regulatory environment.
  • You’re comfortable operating in a world of uncertainty and making decisions based on logical reasoning and intuition.
  • You are practical and business-oriented, and are accustomed to weighing risk-reward tradeoffs.
  • You’re excited to help us build robust, reliable and scalable compliance processes to help us launch tons of fundraises in a safe and compliant way.
  • You’re a fearless, data-driven leader who will serve as a key member of our budding EU-based team.
  • You’re based in the EU (or willing to relocate). We expect our first EU office to be based in Amsterdam (bonus points if you have an existing network in the EU startup ecosystem that you can leverage).

Benefits

  • Market-rate salaries and stock options, scaling with experience.
  • Unlimited vacation days (mandatory 3 weeks off).
  • All-expense paid Wefunder vacation.
  • Equipment of your choice.
  • Lots of free food and drinks.
  • Reimbursement for classes and conferences.
