Senior Counsel

ExtendSan Francisco, CA

About Extend:

Extend is modernizing the $100 billion-per year extended warranty and protection plan industry using cutting edge technology, and top notch customer service. With a $40M Series B round of funding, we are ready to continue to scale our organization.

Our API-first solution allows any merchant to offer extended warranties and protection plans, both online and offline, while also providing a merchant's end customers with a vastly improved and modern support experience that eliminates many of the issues customers face today with legacy underwriters.

We are a venture backed startup based in downtown San Francisco (and since COVID began, fully remotely) that is led by founders who have previously had multiple successful exits. Extend is simplifying the technology stack for the extended warranty industry, in the same way that Stripe did for online payments and Affirm did for consumer point of sale financing.

About the Role:

This Senior Counsel will be the first full time attorney on the Extend team and will manage all legal matters for the company in conjunction with outside counsel. Areas of focus will include contracts, data/consumer privacy, licensing, compliance, leases, employment, and corporate governance. The successful candidate will be an engaged and resourceful self-starter, comfortable working in a fast-paced and dynamic environment and excellent at building strong relationships across our global offices.

What You'll Do:

  • Draft, review, and negotiate complex commercial transaction agreements.
  • Draft, review, and manage regulatory and licensing application processes.
  • Assist the business teams by drafting and negotiating consulting agreements, statements of work, open sources usage, and related IP issues.
  • Review and advise Marketing and Product teams on creative assets and product enhancements.
  • Advise key stakeholders of legal and business risks related to deals that you support.
  • Help to manage equity plans and programs.
  • Assist with corporate administration efforts, including compliance with relevant international, federal, and state laws and subsidiary administration.
  • Support Board and Committee meetings and other governance initiatives and filings.
  • Collaborate cross-functionally with Finance, HR, senior leadership and other members of the Extend team.
  • Lead or partner on other special or miscellaneous projects as needed.
  • Manage and partner with outside counsel.

What We're Looking For:

  • 7+ years of major law firm and/or in-house experience focused on general corporate, drafting and negotiating commercial agreements, and corporate governance matters.
  • Knowledge of intellectual rights enforcement and licensing.
  • JD required from top program and admission to the CA bar (or eligible for CA authorized in-house counsel).
  • Ability to manage tight deadlines and multiple complex projects simultaneously.
  • Excellent judgment and communication skills, with a strong attention to detail.
  • Experience with public technology and/or insurance services companies, a plus but not required.

Life at Extend:

  • Working with a great team from diverse backgrounds in a collaborative and supportive environment.
  • Competitive salary based on experience, with full medical and dental benefits.
  • Stock in an early-stage startup growing quickly.
  • Flexible vacation policy.
