What you will do

As Commercial Counsel at Karat, you will serve as one of the first members of our growing Legal team.

  • Devise creative, practical legal solutions to meet cross-organizational business objectives.
  • Partner with the broader organization to support each team’s procurement needs and negotiate vendor contracts.
  • Work closely with cross-functional partners to understand broader needs and objectives in order to deliver pragmatic, business-minded advice.
The experience you will bring
  • J.D. degree from an accredited law school
  • Bar admission in current good standing, with license to practice in at least one U.S. state
  • 3+ years of hands-on experience negotiating commercial agreements (preferably in B2B2C, B2B SaaS, or another technology-focused industry)
  • Excellent business judgment and ability to balance risk-reward in a manner to provide pragmatic, solution-oriented advice that does not compromise core legal protections
  • Highly proficient in key commercial negotiation points, strategies, and solutions
  • Strong interpersonal skills; can drive a deal process towards a positive outcome quickly, collaboratively, and with effective communication
  • Growth mindset and the ability to pivot in order to meet the evolving needs and priorities of Karat stakeholders
  • Experience leading long-term design improvements of contract documentation (policies, templates) and workflows
