Copper is transforming how institutional investors engage with digital assets, providing market-leading infrastructure in addition to custody, trading and prime brokerage solutions.

Our award-winning custody application leverages the genius of multi-party computation (MPC) encryption and can be configured to support cold, warm, and hot wallet solutions.

Asset managers are further protected by our pioneering ClearLoop network, which enables off-exchange trading and settlement at tier-1 digital asset exchanges. An offering enhanced by the availability of uncollateralised lending.

Copper’s secure wallet architecture is available as a standalone application, a mobile app, and a browser extension for smart contract signing. With an easy to navigate interface, market making liquidity, and a team always ready to assist you, Copper will change the way you look at crypto.

At Copper our culture is based on innovation, enthusiasm and above all else collaboration.

Department environment

The Copper legal team is a collaborative and high energy group of smart, driven and intellectually curious lawyers and paralegals.

We take our work but not ourselves incredibly seriously, tackling novel issues and supporting the business with focus, precision, and relentless good humour. We know and support each other deeply as professionals and humans.

We proudly hold a range of passports and qualifications and speak as many languages as we have team members – diversity on all levels is deeply valued.

Key Responsibilities of the role:

  • Play a key part in building Copper’s legal foundations as Copper and the crypto markets enter a period of rapid growth and professionalisation.
  • Advise on a variety of legal and commercial queries from the business, manage workflows and provide timely solutions, while managing expectations of the business.
  • Help draft, review and update terms and conditions of the business for new and existing product and service offerings. Understand and mitigate key elements of the company’s risk profile.
  • Draft and negotiate commercial agreements with clients and counterparties for the provision of SaaS and associated services.
  • Contribute to the growing legal team’s development of scalable, global processes, development of forward-looking strategies, standard forms, templates, playbooks and FAQs for the business.
  • Grapple with and become an expert in the technological and commercial challenges unique to the rapidly developing crypto markets and recommend innovative solutions in a risk-aware manner.

The ideal candidate for this role will:

  • 1 to 4 years, post-qualified experience
  • Be a proactive, self-starter with a strong work ethic, who is comfortable rolling up their sleeves in a fast-paced environment.

  • Possess a clear appreciation of the complexities inherent in regulated markets, preferably with a background in financial services.
  • Be keen to work collaboratively across multiple functions, including Product, Sales, Marketing, Compliance, IT and Security. A team player who is adaptable and willing to pitch in to support colleagues and the growth of the business.
  • Have the ability to digest complex matters and to communicate clearly, concisely and in a timely fashion.
  • Balance the need for innovation and the achievement of commercial goals with the need for control and consistent adherence to governance.
  • Have strong communication skills and ability to form effective working relationships quickly. Resilience, good humour, self-awareness and ability to laugh through challenges.
  • Show a keen interest in legal trends, in both financial services and technology; HODLers most welcome
