North Island Ventures is seeking an General Counsel to join its venture capital investing team.
North Island Ventures is seeking to add a General Counsel to its growing team. The GC will be responsible for overseeing all legal matters and serve as Deputy Chief Compliance Office at NIV. Primary responsibilities will include:
Beyond these primary responsibilities, there is the opportunity to support firm investments, strategy, and operations. Over the longer-term, the GC should grow into a key leadership role at the firm. The essence of the role will be to live at the intersection of blockchain technology, cutting edge legal structures, regulatory compliance, and more.
We are flexible on amount of work experience – what matters is that the candidate is a fast learner who can excel at the responsibilities listed above and is a collaborative, low-ego team player.
The GC will report to Travis Scher, Managing Partner in his primary role, and Jeremy Henderson, Chief Compliance Officer, in his role at Deputy CCO.
There will be an emphasis on social and communication skills, attention to detail, and cultural fit. We work as a cohesive team and expect everybody at NIV to think like an owner, not an agent. The GC must be a self-starter and independent thinker who can operate with minimal supervision. Additionally, the GC must live or be willing to relocate to NYC. We work from the office four days per week, though working remotely for several weeks per year is permissible.
