Job Title:
Junior Corporate Paralegal for Venture Fund

Job Description:
QueensBench is a legal recruiter based in the SF Bay Area, specializing in retained search for tech companies and their investors.

Our client, a major venture capital firm headquartered in Silicon Valley, is seeking a junior paralegal to provide critical practice support to their attorneys, investment partners and other team members. Prior paralegal experience is not essential (see Minimum Qualifications below); the team believes that someone with the right aptitude and attitude will learn quickly on the job.

In this role, you will assist with fund operations and the execution of investment and exit transactions. You must have the ability to work collaboratively with a highly motivated team in a fast-paced environment. Your responsibilities will include managing the firm's records, reviewing contracts, coordinating and preparing for closings, and supporting specific projects as they arise.

This position is based in Mountain View, CA; full-time attendance in-person is required.

Minimum Qualifications:
You are:

• A consummate multi-tasker who is highly organized. Juggling multiple time-sensitive projects with overlapping deadlines doesn’t faze you.

• A skilled writer with high attention to detail. You triple check your work, avoid verbosity, and get straight to the point.

• A fixer and a tinkerer. You take the initiative to address problems and make continuous improvements.

• Curious, diligent and patient. Reading long documents and combing through spreadsheets? Bring it on - you relish the challenge of digging in, applying sound judgment, and cutting through to the heart of any matter.

Preferred Qualifications:

• People enjoy working with you. You are collaborative, have a strong work ethic and listen well. You inspire confidence and excellence in others, and you’re always open to feedback and growth.

• You have a good working knowledge of how venture finance works (and the desire to learn more), and the courage to dive deeply into related topics you may know nothing about (e.g. corporate governance, federal securities laws, and public reporting obligations relevant to venture firms).

• Tech-savvy. You are adept at using Google products and enjoy utilizing new tools and systems so that you can focus on the work that matters.

• You have experience working in a large organization, managing communications across multiple teams.

Responsibilities:
You will:

• Work closely with the legal and finance teams to help keep the firm's internal operations running smoothly.

• Support investment and exit transactions, including background and conflict checks, due diligence, document preparation, closing mechanics and post-closing administration.

• Process stockholder consents and similar requests from our portfolio.

• Review and negotiate short contracts such as vendor agreements and non-disclosure agreements.

• Perform corporate housekeeping tasks, including document filing, data organization and daily tracking of documents, including routing documents for signature and distribution.

Compensation:
Our client offers extremely competitive compensation, including top-of-market suite of benefits, and a fantastic working environment.
