Solving the affordable housing crisis one room at a time!
Are you ready to dive into the world of a fast-paced tech startup? Are you ready to change the world? At PadSplit we’re disrupting the affordable housing industry by creating safe, attractive, and respectable co-living environments. If you’re motivated by the conviction that working people should have a decent place to live, and want to do something about it, come join us!
At PadSplit, our purpose is to solve our affordable housing crisis one room at a time while leveraging housing as a vehicle for financial independence. Our principles are Care, Show it, Prove it. We live out our principles by embodying our values: Empathy, Optimism, Intellectual Curiosity, Strong Work Ethic, High Integrity, and Compassionate Directness.
As the Head of Legal, you will be an incredibly smart legal generalist and a creative problem-solver. We’re a startup that covers a lot of legal ground from land-use & zoning to technology to fundraising to business law. We don’t expect you to know it all, since we’re building something new, but you’ll need to be a really quick study who can help us untangle a variety of legal issues. You’ll need to be able to research legal questions quickly to keep us out of harm’s way, or at least to the extent possible. You’ll need to be bulldog, or a hound dog, or an emotional support dog depending on the day, and you’ll need to be able to consult with our partners in other states on how they can stay in sync with us. You’ll also need to write a playbook for legal operation in various jurisdictions.
You’ll also have to get used to not wearing a suit. . .maybe ever.
