From Fivetran’s founding until now, our mission has remained the same: to make access to data as simple and reliable as electricity. With Fivetran, customer data arrives in their warehouses, canonical and ready to query, with no engineering or maintenance required. We’re proud that more organizations continue to leverage our technology every day to become truly data-driven.

About the Role

We're looking for a business-minded Corporate Counsel to join our global SaaS company and growing Legal Team. This attorney will report to the Associate General Counsel (Corporate), and will support our corporate transactions, equity programs, and international subsidiary management work. This is an unparalleled opportunity to bring not only your corporate transaction skills but also your broader legal and business acumen. This strategic role has the potential for a huge impact and will continue to support the maturation and expansion of Fivetran's business. The successful candidate will possess strong business acumen, be globally-minded and detail-oriented, have a right-sized risk calculus built from experience, and have strong interpersonal and communication skills. We power the modern data stack from our Oakland, CA headquarters with a global team grounded in integrity, initiative, and our ethos of "1 Team, 1 Dream."

Fivetran is a start-up company where everyone rolls up their sleeves and digs into work, and this role is no different. This role can be based remotely, or out of one of Fivetran's US offices in Denver, CO or Oakland, CA.
