Job Description

Welcome to the CS Fam 
CommentSold is a social commerce platform that modernizes the way retailers connect to online shoppers, including hosting live sales events and managing day-to-day retail operations. Simply, we help online retailers do less and sell more. 
Our team is dispersed throughout the US, which means we value the diversity and unique collaboration that’s fostered through a remote team. We work incredibly hard for our customers, and believe deeply in our platform’s value. We’re a high energy, high growth team and we love to win.

Commercial Counsel

CommentSold, a leader in the live commerce space, is looking for a super commercial contracts attorney to support its growing business.  You will provide critical support to the business by drafting, reviewing and negotiating sales, partner, and vendor contracts. You would be the second attorney hired by the company, reporting directly to the Chief Legal Officer.  This is a fantastic opportunity for an attorney to build upon a solid commercial contracts background and also develop experience in additional areas such as corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions, employment, privacy, and intellectual property law. 

In this role, you will be responsible for

  • Commercial Contracts: Draft, review, negotiate and resolve sales, partner and vendor contracts. This role will need to work closely with the Sales and Partner teams to help them meet their goals.  It will need to take initiative and use independent judgment to find solutions rather than just spot issues

  • Business Development: Work with our business development team to draft, review, and negotiate contracts with potential partners

This person will need to understand our products and use their creativity to draft new agreements that reflect the legal and commercial realities of the markets into which we sell
  • Broad Legal Coverage: This role provides support to the CLO in a wide variety of legal areas.  Immediate areas where you will be able to contribute are corporate governance, employment and privacy.  Additionally you could help with mergers and acquisitions, and intellectual property law based on needs and bandwidth

If you’re right for this role, you

  • Have a Growth Mindset: You are going to be one of two lawyers at the company, so you will need to be curious and eager to learn new things.  Doing something you have never done before should excite you
  • Have the Right Amount of Ego: You will need to believe in yourself enough to take on new challenges, but be humble enough to listen to others
  • Are Team Oriented: You want to support the company, other teams and your team to meet their collective goals
  • Are Goal Oriented: You deliver on time and delight customers
  • Have a J.D. from an accredited law school
  • Have a minimum of 3-5 years of experience drafting, reviewing and negotiating commercial contracts, especially SaaS and e-commerce agreements

We love our values

We’re building a fam, our chosen circle, around a set of values that guide how we work and interact with the world around us. Our cultural norms at work can’t be turned off when the computer’s away — we live these in every part of our lives. Our team isn’t for everyone, so if you’re right for it, the following values should resonate strongly with how you live your life.

We’re intolerant to bad vibes, and genuinely love where we work (and want to keep it that way). We choose our fam by looking beyond a skillset – because roles can change – and surround ourselves with folks we want to spend our lives with.


We aim high and hire smart people to get there — folks that use logic and critical thinking to make the best decisions. We look beyond the problem and quickly build context to come to the right solution; our ever-changing and high-pace environment requires a team of great autonomous thinkers. 


When we say “got it,” our team knows we’re owning it, we’re following through, and we’ll deliver beyond expectations. Put the effort into figuring things out yourself (hey, we’re all busy), and actively collaborate if you haven’t Got it; ownership also means knowing when to seek help and to never suffer in silence.


We’re a rare team of folks that genuinely love to work hard because we know that putting in the effort gets the win — we’re the people that started our careers at the lemonade stand. Not at all costs, but we give it our all because our customers are hustling to grow their businesses, and the hustle’s more fun when we’re winning together.


We collaborate for more than the high-fives (although they’re pretty great), and our team thrives on timely and direct feedback. There’s no hesitation in being direct; since we’re surrounded by smart people, we embrace thoughtful and challenging perspectives.
