About Tradeshift
Tradeshift is a unicorn in the fintech industry. We are disrupting a typically stagnant environment by connecting companies of all sizes and providing them with the platform and network needed to create value from old processes like procurement, invoicing, payments, and workflow. We recognize that business is both messy and social - two revelations that have driven the development of Tradeshift, a platform for all your business interactions.


The Legal Department plays a key role in helping to propel Tradeshift forward.  We drive customer negotiations and contract formation. We run the company’s global stock options program.  We do handle all corporate and other legal topics, throughout the globe.

Job Description


Tradeshift is looking for someone who can help us with corporate topics (including stock options), contract review and negotiation, and also various back-office tasks (such as signature process and document filings).  This is a hybrid role, with elements of contract negotiation, corporate, and coordination.

What a day is like:

A typical day involves working on NDAs, vendor contracts, assisting with immigration topics, working with CFO and GC on corporate and stock option projects.  There are also documents to coordinate signatures for, and filing of documents into electronic folders. Tradeshift is a global company, and you will have daily contact with people on from many countries.


You’re perfect for this role if you: You have an attention to detail and are responsive, with a focus on client service.

You also have:

  • You are a problem solver, and team player.
  • You get along with others, and are dependable.
  • You have a can-do, proactive attitude.
  • You like challenges, and working on interesting projects across the globe.

One day you might find us having a ping pong match in the middle of the work day, and then you’ll find us handing off projects to colleagues in different time zones so we can continue progress around the clock.
