Reporting to the SVP, Finance, the Head of Legal will be Posh’s first in-house lawyer and responsible for building a world-class legal function. You will be responsible for all aspects of shaping and executing on Posh’s legal framework and strategy and overseeing all legal matters, including commercial contracts, intellectual property, data security and privacy, strategic transactions, corporate governance, and managing external legal resources. This is an exciting and rare opportunity for an ambitious legal professional to embark on a journey with a fast-growing, award-winning AI-native SaaS company and deliver on highly impactful work – even better if you’ve seen this growth play out before and want to join at an earlier stage.

You will be a key advisor and thought leader for legal – you’re not afraid to work hands-on to get deals structured and over the line in a timely manner, provide counsel on product roadmap, advise on employment matters, and build out a legal playbook / templates as we plan to expand the business through partnerships, conduct strategic transactions (fundraising, acquisitions, licensing), and uphold the highest level of privacy / security standards for our clients. Additionally, you will work closely with senior leaders across Office of the CEO, Sales, Marketing, Partnerships, Client Solutions, Product, Engineering, Finance, and People.


Posh raised $27.5m Series A from top investment firms including Canapi, Underscore, Curql, as well as $7.5M in additional funds from individual credit unions. We’re proud to share that 80+ credit unions are part owners in our CUSO.
