We’re looking for someone who has:

  • At least 10-15 years of litigation experience at a leading law firm or in-house legal department; government trial experience strongly preferred (in-house experience or experience advising technology clients as outside counsel is a plus)
  • Strong familiarity with e-discovery issues, including document retention policies and procedures as well as collection, review, and production of documents
  • Excellent writing and advocacy skills
  • Strong organization and project management skills with the ability to work well on both long and short-term projects

At Stripe, we're looking for people with passion, grit, and integrity. You're encouraged to apply even if your experience doesn't precisely match the job description. Your skills and passion will stand out—and set you apart—especially if your career has taken some extraordinary twists and turns. At Stripe, we welcome diverse perspectives and people who think rigorously and aren't afraid to challenge assumptions. Join us.
