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 are hiring a business-minded Contract Management Manager on the Commercial Legal team to negotiate a range of agreements varying in complexity and oversee innovative contract operations. This role calls for deep collaboration and partnership with stakeholders across Legal, Finance, Revenue, Product, and other internal stakeholders. You’ll be tasked with delivering quick turnarounds on contracts, finding creative solutions to big and small problems, supporting contract questions, and optimizing processes to support the business. The ideal person for this role will also be very ‘hands-on’ and equally adept at program execution and strategy development for the function.

What You'll Do

  • Draft, negotiate and manage a broad range of commercial agreements, amendments, NDAs, and other contracts, varying from very simple to highly custom terms.
  • Support contract management, contract approval coordination, database management, and reporting.
  • Assist with the development, maintenance, and proofing of standard contract templates, training materials, knowledgement management and contract analysis.
  • Help the team get things done by unblocking problems, strategically determining the best course of action, supporting escalations, and garnering XFN resources.
  • Develop and deliver training and enablement programs for various initiatives and teams, and provide ongoing counsel and assistance to business teams as requested.
  • Develop and implement policies, practices and guidance for contract operations, including training, guides and playbooks.
  • Manage and meet aggressive internal SLAs, and help juggle priorities in a fast-moving environment.
  • Manage and promote professional development and career growth for a high performing and talented team.
  • Participate in special assignments and provide ad hoc support as required.

The ideal candidate will also be able to support the following at a senior-level:

  • Collaborate with the team to strategize and improve on contract operations and initiatives, and regularly seek ways to optimize for speed, efficiency, and quality.
  • Liaise with Legal Ops, Product and Revenue Ops teams as necessary on solution design and delivery.
  • Complex Ironclad administration.

What We Look For

  • You have 10+ years of experience in complex contract drafting and negotiation, contract management, and contract operations.
  • At least 5 years of in-depth experience with complex Ironclad and Salesforce administration.
  • You have spent most or all of your career in-house, working at fast-paced companies that value quick decision-making.
  • You’ve never met a legal process you couldn’t simplify and improve.
  • You adapt quickly to changing processes and new priorities – the only constant here is change.
  • Hands on program management experience driving complex, cross-functional projects.
  • Strategic thought leadership with sound business acumen and judgment.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.
  • Strong bias for action to get stuff done.
  • Extreme attention to detail, ability to adjust on the fly, problem-solving skills, proactivity and a great attitude.
  • A sense of urgency on all matters.
  • Highly responsive and proactive.
  • A team player mindset (no job is too big or too small)
  • Humility, integrity and a desire to be part of a strong, supportive team; you take your work seriously but not yourself
