About the Role

At Abnormal Security we work hard to protect our customers from cybercrime. We’re building a world-class legal team to enable and support our business as we bring to market, deliver, and support cybersecurity products that make cloud office environments safer.

The Abnormal Security legal team differentiates by showing up as strategic business partners; being great lawyers is the cost of entry, being business accelerators is how we become trusted partners to our internal teams and customers.

The ideal candidate will have knowledge of CLM tools, process optimization and have a positive, approachable attitude. In addition, the Contracts Administrator will be an important contributing member of the amazing legal team we’re building.

  • Manage CLM Platform: Oversee the CLM platform to ensure it is optimized for efficiency and meets the needs of the commercial team and the wider organization. You will become the subject matter expert in our tools.

  • Triage Requests from Sales: Leveraging generative AI, you will serve as the first point of contact for legal requests from the Sales department, ensuring that inquiries are addressed promptly and accurately.

  • Maintain Legal Team and Legal-Sales Knowledge Bases: Keep the legal team’s internal and external knowledge bases up-to-date with the latest policies, procedures, and best practices to ensure that Legal and Sales can access critical information swiftly.

  • Assess and Optimize Workflows: Continually assess current legal processes and workflows for efficiency and effectiveness. Propose and implement tech solutions to automate and operationalize where possible.

  • Review Restricted Party Screening: Conduct reviews of restricted party screening flags as necessary, ensuring compliance with relevant laws and regulations.

This includes ensuring timely turnaround times for redlines, managing approvals, signing and ensuring that the appropriate metadata is captured when archived.

  • Training for GTM Legal Processes: Create training programs using generative AI for new Sales hires to ensure basic understanding of legal processes and platform use.
