Since 2013, federal, state, and local government agencies have trusted Nava to build transformative digital services to help people access public benefits. Meeting our mission is an opportunity to restore trust between people and public institutions. We focus on populations that are the least protected because the stakes are higher.</div><div> <br> <div>As a client services company, we work with government agencies to improve how people apply for benefits, navigate their health care, and more. We bill for our time, selling our expertise and problem-solving methodology to government clients. Our clients hire us to help improve their products and services so that their users and beneficiaries have a better customer experience.</div> <div> <br> <div>These end-users—the humans who benefit from our work—are at the core of everything we do. We research beneficiaries’ needs to help our government clients better deliver on their missions, providing everyone at Nava opportunities to do meaningful, impactful work. </div> <div> <br> <div> <b style="font-size:12pt;">Position Summary</b> </div> <div> <span style="font-size:12pt;">The General Counsel will oversee and manage all legal matters applicable to the company. This seasoned, values-based leader is responsible for providing strategic guidance to executive leadership and other company stakeholders relating to risk management, contract management, government compliance, operational matters, and legal analysis of business opportunities; demonstrating a hands-on approach to anticipating and addressing potential legal risks; serving as a creative problem solver for complex business, legal, and compliance challenges; and partnering across organizational boundaries with the delivery, growth, and operational teams to improve business results. The General Counsel will report to the CFO, establish the in-house legal function, and be a trusted advisor and integral part of the leadership team.</span> </div> <div> <br> <div> <span style="font-size:12pt;">Nava provides the opportunity to do meaningful, impactful, mission-oriented work. As a public benefit corporation, the people who work at Nava have a fiduciary duty to our stated mission: to improve the accessibility, effectiveness, and simplicity of government services. When identifying and pursuing opportunities we must ensure that we are well suited to win and deliver successfully, but also evaluate the work against our mission and values. This is a high bar, but it's why we're here, and it informs what we do and how we operate across all phases of the business.</span> </div> <div> <br> <div> <span style="font-size:12pt;">You will work as part of a remote-first team to deliver the highest quality internal support and solutions to employees at scale in a fast-growing professional services company. Nava is 250+ people today, and the General Counsel will be integral to help us approximately double over the next several years and become a more mature delivery and consulting firm. Critical to this role will be the ability to utilize significant experience in the technology, software, and professional services industry, interpret and advise on the impact of federal, state, and local laws for the organization, and implement a solid understanding of U.S. Government and State Governments’ procurement laws and regulations.</span> </div> <div> <br> <div> <span style="font-size:12pt;">Like all executives at Nava, we are seeking “T-shaped” candidates –people with vertical depth of expertise in legal operations who are strong horizontal leaders and communicators across organizational boundaries. In particular, we are looking for a leader who will deeply understand our goals, business, delivery approach, and mission, before bringing their expertise to the table to help us get there. You bring a solution-oriented mindset, aligning your approach and your teams’ approach to help us creatively achieve business objectives. You are an excellent communicator verbally and in writing, helping teams at Nava trust and partner with this newly-established role to enable productivity, clarity, and speed across the organization.</span> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div>
