General Counsel at Wunder Capital
Wunder was founded with one simple vision: to address the greatest crisis of our generation by accelerating the proliferation of solar energy. Members of our team have raised hundreds of millions of dollars in private equity, developed innovative energy infrastructure solutions for the Department of Energy, and built digital products that are used and loved by millions of people. Now, we’re saving the world.
Our office is a unique hybrid of finance, engineering, design, and business development. Although our backgrounds and responsibilities vary wildly, we’re a tight-knit bunch that loves cross-pollination. And while our mission is big, we try to keep things light. We provide a happy, productive workplace, and we’re constantly improving it! You’ll find us hustling on the job while also cycling, hiking, boarding, skiing, camping, and dining all over our mile-high home; Colorado.The Role
At Wunder, we have an amazing opportunity for a motivated, experienced, and impact-driven lawyer to join our fast-growing company and serve as General Counsel. Your role, broadly speaking, will be to solve problems and push renewable energy forward. Specifically, you will provide counsel on a wide range of legal matters, coordinate with external legal experts, advise on a variety of commercial transactions, and guard against potential legal risks that the company may face. An ideal candidate is someone with significant knowledge and experience in:
The commercial finance industry, through work with banks, financial institutions, and private investment firms.
Asset-based and cash flow lending, leveraged acquisitions and recapitalizations, subordinated debt and mezzanine financings, financial asset acquisitions, and other forms of debt and equity financing.
Restructurings, workouts, bankruptcies, and other matters relating to these financings.
Transactions involving warehouses, office buildings, mixed-use properties, shopping centers, retail facilities, hotels, hospitality and leisure facilities, industrial facilities and condominium developments located throughout the United States.
Your "day-to-day" will change day to day, and it will require a commercial perspective, cross-functional ethos, and roll-up-the-sleeves attitude.
At Wunder we're using technology and standardization to crack the multi-billion dollar commercial solar opportunity wide open. So, if you get excited about bringing an entirely new asset class to market, building an organization aimed at saving the world, and ensuring that all of the details needed to make all of that happen are above board, then this is the role for you.About You
This Is What You Do - You have 5+ years of experience as a practicing lawyer, with experience in the commercial finance, commercial real estate, and/or financial services industries. Renewable energy experience is great, but not required.
You have led legal engagements in the past - You know how to step in and quickly ramp up, manage your time across competing priorities, and take ownership over Legal’s responsibilities.
Superior Written, Oral, and Presentation Skills - You're happy to work via phone, fire off a bunch of emails, jump into a spreadsheet, shake some hands, and make a board presentation. This isn't a big bank or law firm where your responsibilities are silo-ed; here you'll need to work dynamically and cross-functionally.
A No-Task-Is-Too-Small Attitude - Wunder is a small, scrappy financial technology company, but we close big deals and make a big impact. A lot needs to get done in the process, and there's no room for ego here.
You have a Team Ethos - You thrive in a creative, inventive, fast-paced startup environment, with people who are passionate about their work and mission. You’re not just excited to work cross- functionally, you demand it.
You’re Flexible, a Quick Responder - The problem we’re trying to solve as an organization is dynamic and each day brings fresh and exciting challenges. You can react quickly and efficiently when called upon to change or pivot.
You Believe That No Problem is Too Hard - In an industry where people are constantly stuck, we find ways to get it done. You know how to articulate and roll out solutions, recognizing there are many solutions to the same problem. You find new and effective ways to streamline and create processes to increase efficiency.
