Job Description

Here at 10x Banking we believe banks are slowed down by their own legacy technology and we’re here to change that. Our community brings together banking industry knowledge with market-leading, next gen, cloud native technology required to move banking into the 21st century.

The biggest banks around the globe use our platform to power some of the world’s most innovative financial propositions. And to do this we've built a team that has the breadth of knowledge and experience we need to push our product forward.

We have headquarters in London and Sydney, but our 10x teams work around the globe with colleagues in Europe, Australia, Asia, Africa and all over the UK and Ireland.

Join us in our mission to make banking 10x better for customers, banks and society!

About the role:

Reporting to the General Counsel, this role will be an integral part of 10x's Legal function 10x. You will provide general corporate and commercial legal support across the business, supporting the group’s requirements here in the UK, as well as in Australia and elsewhere as the group expands into new territories. You will work closely with numerous business operations and technical teams across the business, including Sales, Product, Finance, Supplier Management and with our compliance and risk control functions.

About You:

You will be a commercial/corporate generalist that can build relationships with our internal clients. You will be focused on supporting the customer-facing team to win new business, and strengthening relationships with existing customers, through drafting and negotiating commercial contracts and overseeing adherence to the contractual obligations in those agreements. You will help with the operationalisation of the legal function as the business scales, liaise with outside counsel and support the General Counsel in managing the Group’s legal requirements.

This might include:

  • Drafting, reviewing and negotiating various customer and supplier contracts
  • Supporting the organisation with drafting and reviewing various other legal agreements, and corporate and regulatory documents and filings
  • Providing practical legal advice and training to your colleagues
  • Supporting the development and maintenance of 10x’s corporate and regulatory compliance programs; and
  • Monitoring legal and regulatory trends and analysing their impact on 10x, as well as our customers.

Requirements

We are looking for someone who is well-rounded, can work independently and is not afraid to “roll their sleeves up and get stuck in”. 10x is at an inflexion point in its growth and we are looking for someone who wants to help in the organisation’s growth and to make our business 10x better.

Ideally you will have...

  • Experience as a qualified lawyer, preferably in England and Wales but we will consider other relevant jurisdictions
  • Extensive relevant experience as in-house legal counsel and/or from a reputable law firm
  • Excellent commercial contracts expertise, preferably within PaaS/SaaS
  • Privacy law experience
  • Strong business-orientation and ability to provide practical and actionable advice in a clear and friendly way
  • Excellent communication skills and a cooperative mindset aimed at adding value to 10x’s business
  • Proficiency in written and spoken English (other languages would be considered a plus)
  • Experience from tech and PaaS/SaaS providers is desirable.

However...

A desire to get stuck in is more important than ticking every box on our checklist. So, if you’re interested in what we’re building and excited by our mission, get in touch anyway!

10x Ways of Working

We recognise that a better work/life balance can improve people’s motivation, performance and overall wellbeing. The Covid-19 pandemic changed a lot of things about the way we work, including the enablement of colleagues working from various locations and delivering high performance through the effective use of remote working technology.

10x is a fully ‘remote enabled’ organisation and supports agile working. This means colleagues can decide, in agreement with their line manager, their choice of working location which will enable them to achieve their personal and team objectives.

The regularity of office working differs from team to team, but if you are successful in your application a member of the Talent team will talk this through with you in detail before progressing you to the interview stage. As all employees are employed on London-based contracts, commuting costs to the office are covered by employees and not by 10x.

Equal opportunities for all

At 10x we are passionate about our people and are committed to fostering a more diverse and inclusive culture. We are building a community where every 10xer can bring their authentic self to work and feel empowered to reach their full potential. Our many employee networks help amplify this vision.

Alongside assessing technical capabilities to do the role, our assessment process will identify what you can uniquely bring to our 10x teams, and the potential you have to thrive here. Common to every role that 10xers perform, are 3 core competencies that we look for in our future 10xers – Business Impact, Change Driver & Delivery Excellence

We are committed to ensuring all job applicants are treated equally and fairly and encourage applicants of all ethnicities, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, family or parental status, age, neurodiversity or disability status.

Accommodations

We recognize not everyone is the same. In fact, we embrace difference. If you require any form of accommodation during the interview process, please tell us so we can make arrangements to support. Any information that you provide will be recorded and maintained confidentially.
