Legal has grown rapidly over the past few years at Kraken. We’re one of the world’s largest and most successful crypto exchanges, and that involves a responsibility to lead, advocate, and challenge in the global legal landscape. Among other things, Legal personnel plan and implement for rapidly evolving bodies of law. They contribute to product creation and acquisition strategy. They work with prominent customers and legal bodies worldwide on cutting-edge industry issues and emerging markets. Legal employees at Kraken have entrepreneurial spirits and are always thinking carefully about how to help the business move forward: take calculated risks, be brave at times, but make good choices that fit Kraken’s culture, mission, and spirit. The department is populated with experts in their fields: leaders who help propel Kraken and each other forward.
As a member of Legal, you’ll be part of a growing organization that is building out various playbooks, programs, and processes. Legal is critical to the expansion of Kraken worldwide and to the compliant but challenging progression of Kraken’s mission and interests. To be successful in Legal, you need to be nimble and ownership-oriented: able to work well in a team environment but also to own innovations and get things done in a sometimes lean team. Legal members are also direct communicators, concise/action-oriented, and get things done in reasonably quick timeframes: Kraken is an innovative, fast-paced company. Finally, among other things, our Legal team has a healthy appetite for risk: we need to push boundaries in the crypto industry and advocate for global financial freedom and inclusion. Legal does its part to further this mission.
