About the role

  • Triage and track incoming legal requests.
  • Support and implement new workflows for the legal crew, including helping select and launch new legal technology tools.
  • Identify needs to implement and improve Zeplin's policies and procedures to manage legal and business risk on a global scale.
  • Coordinate with external legal counsel and internal security departments to ensure all processes remain compliant.


  • Experience working with legal teams and documents as a paralegal, or contract/project management experience at a law firm or in-house legal department.
  • Strong attention to detail with stellar organizational skills.
  • Strong interpersonal skills with the ability to build relationships.


  • 4-8 Years of experience working as a paralegal or legal operations manager.
  • Experience working with start-ups in the tech industry.
  • Experience working with international teams.
  • Experience operating in a hyper-growth, rapidly changing environment.
  • Hands-on experience with legal technology tools and applications; such as Carta, Streamline AI, Ironclad, Workflows for Slack, and/or Salesforce
