Job Description

Interested in leading Brand for an iconic company backed by some of the best investors in Silicon Valley? Here’s your chance to bring an ancient technology into the modern age, build a community, elevate the legal profession, and illuminate the hidden value in contracts. 
About Ironclad:
Ironclad is the leading platform that takes the pain out of the contracting process for companies that are big enough to have a legal team. Legal teams are often buried under mountains of contract requests, and their business counterparts frustrated by lack of visibility and slow turnaround times. Our product is a human-centered, no-code platform to automate, negotiate, and manage the entire contracting lifecycle. Customers range from Asana and Dropbox all the way up to large enterprises like Mastercard and L'Oreal. Our design team hails from Dropbox, Palantir, Gusto, Thumbtack, and Zenefits.
As a design team, we believe that great companies, products, and brands are built upon experiences and the emotions they evoke. We operate as a centralized design team to enable those experiences across the entire customer journey. We partner closely with Product, Engineering, Marketing, Customer Success, and Operations teams to ensure a coherent experience at every step.

      • Engage with broader design community to elevate Ironclad's talent brand
