About the Team:

The Legal team is responsible for all of Worldcoin’s legal and government affairs globally.

We have earned a reputation for responsiveness, technical acumen, practicality, and integrity. Everyday, we have a high impact.

About the Opportunity:

This is a unique opportunity to shape and implement legal and compliance processes, and develop valuable subject matter expertise, within a complex global Web3 initiative. Reporting to our Head of Legal Operations, you will help:

  1. Implement the processes that enable Worldcoin’s legal team to operate effectively on foundational matters like contracting, task tracking, eDiscovery / records, and other team needs (budgeting, vendor/firm relationships, trainings, knowledgement management);
  2. Partner cross-company on initiatives identified by Legal and essential to the company’s long-term success (e.g., work with Product to get compliance-related matters addressed, support diligence for potential investors and Orb Operators, and drive IT/information management projects); and
  3. Identify, analyze and track relevant financial regulatory requirements, and create policies, procedures and controls to ensure we remain compliant with our obligations, across numerous jurisdictions.

You will need to operate independently on some projects, but also use judgment for when to loop-in attorneys.

  • Use tech literacy, common sense, and help from attorneys to build systems that support monitoring and testing, training, timely reporting, and ensuring that our internal processes and certain product features are built in a compliant fashion.
  • Collaborate with international teams to prepare consistent and accurate responses and gather materials for license applications and registrations (e.g., e-money license, Virtual Asset Service Provider registration), third-party partners’ audit requests, and examination agendas globally.
  • Take responsibility, under attorney supervision, for operationalizing certain core compliance functions, ensuring the implementation of appropriate controls that reflect the business’ inherent risks and regulatory requirements, including: risk-based Know Your Customer (KYC), transaction monitoring (both on-chain and off-chain), watchlist screening, and regulatory reporting procedures.
  • Build relationships with relevant internal teams (Product, Finance, Growth, People) to help Legal “issue spot” on matters such as AML, sanctions, export controls, tax and data protection, clearly identifying steps to reduce risk or promptly seeking attorney input.
  • Improve and maintain our processes for managing legal intake requests, concluding a wide range of commercial agreements, and supporting capital raises and Board activities.
  • Proactively contribute to the Legal team‘s planning, cohesion, and consistency in guidance, as well as the general efficiency and effectiveness of the team.
