Art Meets Crypto

General Counsel @ MakersPlace (NFT Leader)

Remote (CA or NY Bar Preferred)

 

You saw the headlines last spring: "JPG File Sells for $69 Million, as 'NFT Mania' Gathers Pace." Our friends at MakersPlace, the premier marketplace to mint, trade, discover and collect digital art, were the chosen platform (working with Beeple and Christie's) of the NFT heard 'round the world.

With over $100M in digital art sales and a recent Series A co-led by Bessemer Venture Partners and Pantera Capital, MakersPlace is quickly becoming the most trusted name in digital art sales. Which is unsurprising, given that their founding team includes early Pinterest engineers and ex-YC founders.

Working directly with the Head of Finance and CEO as General Counsel, you'll help build the legal foundation that will secure MakersPlace as the trailblazing market leader in the NFT space. You'll need agility to stay on top of a rapidly changing regulatory space, and decisiveness to make key decisions while managing risks. Ideally, you're also well-versed in AML, FinCEN, and KYC regulations specifically in the crypto/NFT industry.

If you believe that artists should be compensated for their work, and that blockchain is the future, you're the kind of inspired attorney that they want to meet. Round that out with previous experience working at an early-stage startup, and you'll have this role down to a fine art.
