Capital Markets Contracts Manager

| Greater NYC Area
Affirm is reinventing credit to make it more honest and friendly, giving consumers the flexibility to buy now and pay later without any hidden fees or compounding interest.
We’re looking for a smart, driven individual to join our Capital Markets Team as a Contracts Manager. Affirm Capital Markets is responsible for developing and implementing an ongoing strategy for funding our loans - a complex role essential to the functioning of a modern financial institution. The ideal candidate will have a general understanding of financing and/or corporate transactions and a strong desire to learn and grow in a position focused on capital markets and finance. In addition, the ideal candidate will have exemplary organizational and communication skills, be capable of handling multiple responsibilities, and have the desire to work with both internal and external stakeholders. Although we seek an individual to join the Team as a Contracts Manager, we would be supportive of candidates interested in transitioning to a non-legal role on the Capital Markets Team over time. 

What You'll Do

  • Assist with all legal aspects of Affirm’s financing transactions, including drafting closing agendas, organizing closing documents, tracking and organizing signature pages and coordinating closing mechanics
  • Draft officer certificates, board and shareholder resolutions, and side letters
  • Assist with the management of regulatory, tax, Uniform Commercial Code (UCC), and other filings
  • Identify and help implement process improvements to policies and procedures
  • Lead diligence processes to help investment banks, hedge funds, asset managers, and other financing counter-parties understand Affirm’s assets and business in order to receive, evaluate, and provide feedback on term sheet proposals
  • Assist Capital Markets Counsel with the review, formatting, and editing of transaction documents
  • Maintain an efficient document filing system and manage retention of electronic and paper documents (e.g. loan agreements, amendments, waivers, NDAs, and other key documents)
  • Collaborate on team initiatives and other special projects
  • Support the broader Capital Markets Team while interacting cross-functionally with other departments and outside counsel

What We Look For

  • Bachelor's degree or equivalent experience
  • At least 2 years of experience as a corporate paralegal at an established law firm; experience working on financing transactions, specifically in the area of structured and/or debt finance, is preferred
  • Strong organizational skills with an emphasis on time management, documents, projects and relationships
  • Extreme attention to detail, ability to adjust on the fly, problem-solving skills, intellectual maturity, business acumen, proactivity, and a great attitude
  • Excellent writing, communication, and interpersonal skills
  • Experience with G Suite, Microsoft Word and Excel, Adobe, dataroom and redlining software
  • Natural self-starter with the ability to work efficiently both solo and as part of a team
  • Impeccable integrity and work ethic

At Affirm, "People Come First" is a core value and that’s why diversity and inclusion are vital to our priorities as an equal opportunity employer. You can learn more about our D&I efforts here.

An Insider's view of Affirm

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I was originally based in our San Francisco office and recently transitioned to our NYC office. I love the NYC office because it feels like a true start-up! I get the best of both worlds. A growing start-up with infrastructure and stability but with the excitement of a small office and team.

What are some things you learned at the company?

I've learned that staying true to Affirm's consumer-first mission requires a nearly daily commitment to it from the whole company with respect to how decisions are made, which goals are set, & what we decide to build. Sharing this clear north star with my coworkers allows us to connect & align on a deeper level - we're all here for the same reason.


Group Product Manager

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The New York office combines the tight knit, friendly culture of a smaller startup start up with the huge projects of a scaled out company, all while located in the heart of the world's best city. People in NYC are generally hard working, laid back, and fun to talk to.
