Since GoCardless was set up in 2011, we have been focussed on simplifying Direct Debit and opening up access to companies who could not previously use it. We already process over £6bn each year for thousands of businesses, and we are growing fast.
We work with a huge range of organisations. Small gyms and scout groups use us to reduce admin; fast growing companies like Funding Circle use us to power their growth; established institutions like the Guardian use us to dramatically reduce failure rates.
Our ambitions go beyond this: We want to break down barriers so that businesses can quickly and simply start taking payments from anyone, anywhere in the world.
We’re executing against this plan. Recently, we expanded the ability for merchants to collect in Europe, Sweden, Denmark, Australia, New Zealand, and we opened offices in Paris, Melbourne and Munich. Over the coming year, we’ll continue our global expansion as we create a global network for recurring payments.
We’re London-based, and backed by some of the world’s leading investors, including Balderton Capital, Accel Partners, Notion Capital, Passion Capital and Y Combinator.
You’ll act as our General Counsel’s right hand to ensure delivery of the Legal & Compliance team’s goals. This includes delivering against our Geo and Scheme expansion plans, establishing or working with the team to establish KPIs to track our performance and striving to constantly ensure scalability and operational efficiency targets are met. Our team has a reputation for being efficient and at the leading edge of legal technology - we want to continue the trend, and improve our user experience.
You will also act as liaison between the Legal and Compliance team and the rest of GoCardless (other Operations teams, as well as Product, Sales and Marketing) in order to improve cross-company processes - especially those owned by the Legal and Compliance team.
This role offers a unique opportunity to engage with a variety of key stakeholders on a wide range of topics, in an interesting field. This will initially be an individual contributor role.
Some of the main elements of this role will involve:
