How we work

We work fast, grow fast, and build fast. Life at MessageBird moves in fast-forward motion. We’re a team that focuses on making an impact — right from day one. We are go-getters, industry leaders, and dreamers. Risk takers. Roll-up-your-sleeves-and-make-it-happen kind of people. We thrive on transparency, and we value solution-minded attitudes.

We are all driven by one ethos: Get Shit Done. We love shaping things together and leveraging different perspectives, because that makes our products better. Our Birds are empowered with freedom and opportunity; in return, we expect honesty, courage, and agility. We own our work, and sometimes we fail. And then we get back up and cross the finish line — together as a team. Sound refreshing? We think so, too.

The role: Paralegal

As a Paralegal you will be an integral part of the legal team and help to ensure that our work gets done in the most efficient way. You will help where help is needed, being it at larger ad hoc project, such as an acquisition, or ensuring that recurring tasks are completed, such as signatures. The role will report directly to a Senior Legal Counsel.

  • Responding to requests for information from third parties, banks and authorities
  • Organising, managing and updating folders and files 
  • Working with platforms of advisors, law firms, banks, insurance companies, etc. to ensure global compliance
  • Manage and operate the centralized signature function
  • Prepare, review, edit, complete and fact-check various types of legal and financial documents and agreements some of which are highly confidential
  • Act as liaison between the finance and legal teams and other stakeholders
  • and... whatever else you discover you need to do on the go

What you’ll bring:

  • You have 3-5 years of relevant working experience; experience in law is a must, and experience in a similar hyper-growth environment is strongly preferred
  • You have a Bachelor's degree (ideally in law) and a strategic thinking mindset 
  • Excellent time and project management skills
  • You readily take responsibility and can think on your feet
  • You are an independent worker who loves working in a supporting role
  • You are a master multi-tasker: you need to manage multiple tasks and projects
  • You have excellent written and verbal communication skills in Dutch and English

Psst… some added perks

  • The ability to Work Anywhere — literally anywhere you want, as long as it’s in the same time zone as your team (yup… you read that right!). This comes with the added benefit of finding the right work-life balance for you by following our 80/20 rule.
  • WFH office set-up allowance to make sure you have all you need to “get shit done” in an ergonomically-friendly manner.
  • Top-notch work equipment (including active noise-cancelling headphones!).
  • MessageBird swag to keep you well-dressed.
  • The occasional (virtual) company-wide and team events. 
  • A team of (fast-)forward-thinking, talented and fun colleagues from more than 50 countries!

MessageBird is an equal opportunity employer. If you think you’re a match for this role and can bring some great skills to the MessageBird team, please apply! We’re excited to get to know you.
