In-house Counsel in US

Senior Level
Full Time
Our Mission:

Large marketplaces like Amazon have trained us to expect products delivered to our doorsteps within 1-2 days at no extra cost.  As a result, millions of sellers on other marketplaces are falling behind, unable to cost-effectively deliver products to their customers.  Our mission is to transform the $8-12B fragmented and outdated logistics industry, and build an intelligent, asset-lite network that enables any online seller to offer fast, affordable fulfillment.

Our Team:

How we arrived at Deliverr is different — we are violinists, economists, ex-consultants, journalists, and more.  What unites us together is the Deliverr factor: a bias for action, curiosity, and entrepreneurial ownership.  We're looking for intelligent, driven, and passionate people to help make our vision a reality.  We’re based in the heart of San Francisco and building teams around the globe — backed by leading Silicon Valley venture capital firms.  If you are excited about joining a people-first company that is driven to power the future of online retail, — we're looking for you.  Are you ready?

We are looking for an In House Lawyer to partner with our Executive Team to provide legal counsel around our vision, goals and strategies.
