Job Description

Canalyst is a well-funded emerging fintech company based out of Vancouver, British Columbia. Our SaaS product transforms the way finance professionals access and use investment research data, empowering them to innovate on their investment process.


We’re looking for a talented Legal Counsel to join our fast-paced, high-growth, entrepreneurial start-up environment. You’ll have a law degree, provincial law society membership and a bit of private practice or in-house experience in your toolbelt, but your work ethic, self-starter attitude, resourcefulness, integrity and practical, business-oriented approach to legal issues will define your success at Canalyst. Any experience supporting SaaS, early-stage and venture-backed technology companies will also be an asset.


As Legal Counsel, you will help our VP Legal build out Canalyst’s legal function, while gaining hands-on experience across a broad variety of legal matters – from drafting, negotiating and interpreting commercial agreements, administering Canalyst’s equity program, partnering with external counsel to maintain our corporate records, supporting on major business transactions, scaling our legal processes, assessing international expansion and everything in between. This role will empower you to explore your strengths and passions and carve out your practice path.


If you’re a legal entrepreneur eager to make a direct impact on the growth and value of a disrupting high growth company, let’s be in touch. As part of your application, please tell us why you are the ideal candidate for this role and detail your experience partnering with business functions and negotiating complex agreements.
