Legal at Brex

The Legal team helps the company grow responsibly, advocating for Brex and for the thousands of growing businesses we serve. We provide strategic advice and guidance to all Brex teams, protect Brex, advise on risk, and represent the company externally, negotiating with partners and interacting with regulators. Reimagining the financial system in a highly regulated environment requires creativity and resourcefulness, and we welcome the challenge.

What you'll do

You will help us grow, globally scale, and continuously improve our commercial card product and adjacent payments product offerings. You’ll be a subject matter expert on card regulation and card networks, providing strategic advice on risk and regulatory ambiguity. You’ll collaborate directly with stakeholders (including product, engineering, marketing, sales, and partnerships) to find creative solutions to business issues. You know how to break a project down into first principles and see it from ideation to launch. You understand when to figure out a solution in-house and when to strategically and cost-effectively deploy outside counsel.
