Procurement Contracts Manager (Contract)



San Francisco, CA, USA
Posted on Saturday, May 25, 2024

About Us:

We're on a mission to make it possible for every person, team, and company to be able to tailor their software to solve any problem and take on any challenge. Computers may be our most powerful tools, but most of us can't build or modify the software we use on them every day. At Notion, we want to change this with focus, design, and craft.

We've been working on this together since 2016, and have customers like Pixar, Mitsubishi, Figma, Plaid, Match Group, and thousands more on this journey with us. Today, we're growing fast and excited for new teammates to join us who are the best at what they do. We're passionate about building a company as diverse and creative as the millions of people Notion reaches worldwide.

Notion is an in person company, and currently requires its employees to come to the office for two Anchor Days (Mondays & Thursdays) and requests that employees spend the majority of their week in the office (including a third day).

About The Role:

As a Procurement team, we aim to greatly enhance Notion’s long term profitability and support sustainable growth while managing risks effectively. We do this by reinforcing and supporting our company strategic goals and values by securing the best possible value for our stakeholders while collaborating closely with our partners in Legal to develop effective risk management strategies at scale. As an early member of the Procurement team, you will own and manage our Contract Management and Administration process across multiple sourcing categories. This includes collaborating closely with our Legal partners to help build and scale Notion’s key contract systems and processes and have real ownership and impact in a fast pace and dynamic environment. This role requires someone highly collaborative and data driven to manage contracts at scale and effectively execute daily tasks in a fast paced and entrepreneurial environment.

This will be a contracted role for 40 hours per week for 6 months.

What You'll Achieve:

  • Develop and manage pipeline of upcoming new and renewal contracts, aligning this with the Sourcing team and flagging reviews or re-reviews as needed to Sourcing and Legal teams
  • Respond to legal requests from stakeholders and vendors, summarizing and communicating legal concepts per Notion Legal’s playbook
  • Work closely with our Sourcing Legal partners to develop and implement contract management procedures and policies that streamline processes and allow the business flexibility and freedom to move quickly.
  • Effectively collaborate with cross-functional teams (Engineering, Go To Market etc.) to solve problems, build partnerships, and close deals quickly.

Skills You'll Need to Bring:

  • 5+ years of experience working as a sourcing manager, contracts manager or a paralegal in a large law firm, or in-house.
  • 3+ years of experience in the SaaS industry and/or Procurement related contracts
  • Experience in project-managing Sourcing and or Legal related organizational projects and familiar with best in class Source-to-Contract practices.
  • Experience following Legal playbooks and from there independently drafting, negotiating and executing commercial contracts such as Master Agreements, Amendments, Order Forms and Statements of Work.
  • Comfort and experience with technology solutions that help scale CLM (Contract Lifecycle Management)
  • Excellent decision making and analytical abilities focused on minimizing risks, along with clear and effective communication skills.

Nice to Haves:

  • Experience using Procurement (ZIP, SCOUT, COUPA, Oracle, etc.) and CLM Tools (Iron Clad, Panda Doc, Coupa etc.)
  • Masters Degree in a technical or business related field
