Full-time
Everlaw is looking for a Procurement Manager to join our rapidly growing Finance team. As our first dedicated procurement hire, you will be responsible for owning the purchasing policy and processes within Everlaw. You’ll coordinate with finance and our Security and Compliance team to establish corporate policies and processes that will enable efficient vendor review, selection, and management. Reporting to the Vice President of Finance, you will have a great opportunity to work across the organization to develop a company-wide purchasing workflow as Everlaw continues to grow.  Moreover, you will have the opportunity to amaze everyone with your understanding of process-driven growth while supporting Everlaw’s meaningful work in the industry, valuing truth and helping our users discover it. 

At Everlaw, our mission is to promote justice by illuminating truth. Our company culture is open and democratic, and we’re committed to the professional growth of our team members, offering an annual learning and development stipend and regular check-ins with managers regarding career goals. If you’re looking for a place that values passion, integrity, thinking big, and a desire to learn, we’d love to hear from you! Think you’re missing some of the skills, or have more skills than what we are describing, and are hesitant to apply? We do not believe in the ‘perfect’ candidate and encourage you to apply if you feel you can bring value to our team.

This is a full time on-site position located in Oakland, California.

In the first few months, you will

    • Learn about the current processes and tools that we have used to manage procurement and understand the importance of this function as it relates to the industry we serve.

    • Learn, grow, and contribute right away. We trust that you will bring experience and knowledge that will uplift the team, but we don’t expect you to know everything on Day 1. You will have time to develop your product knowledge and get up to speed on all aspects of Everlaw.

In the first year you will

    • Own Everlaw’s purchasing policy and processes and collaborate with cross-functional business partners to optimize organizational spend.
