About Paxos

Paxos is on a mission to enable the movement of any asset, any time, in a trustworthy way. Today’s financial infrastructure is archaic, expensive, inefficient and risky - supporting a system that leaves out more people than it lets in. So we’re rebuilding it.

As a regulated blockchain infrastructure company, we use technology to tokenize, custody, trade, and settle assets for enterprise clients like PayPal, Bank of America, and Interactive Brokers. Paxos is a top-funded blockchain company, with more than $500 million in total funding from leading investors like OakHC/FT, Founders Fund, PayPal Ventures, and Declaration Partners. Together, we empower today’s financial leaders to build a more open, trusted economy.

As a Regulatory Counsel, you’ll get to:

  • Analyze laws and regulations in the US and foreign jurisdictions to support development of business opportunities in an area of law that is rapidly developing
  • Create templates, playbooks and other collateral to help Paxos scale internationally
  • Support maintenance of existing licenses and application processes to obtain new licenses or regulatory approvals
  • Immerse yourself in blockchain technology, asset tokenization, cryptocurrency for enterprises and investors, our regulation-first approach, and more!

Your experience should include:

  • A law degree
  • At least 4 years legal experience, including some experience evaluating and researching financial regulation
  • Ability to work cross-functionally.
  • Ability to meet tight deadlines.
  • Effective communication with internal stakeholders, clients, and regulators.
  • Very detail-oriented.
  • Ability to be both reactive and help solve problems in the moment as well as proactive, building a longer term roadmap and strategy.

You might also have:

  • Litigation background or training preferred.
  • Government financial regulation or enforcement experience is a plus.
  • Both in-house and law firm experience is a plus.
