Since March 2020, our Zoomers have worked remotely and reported an overall better work-life balance with more time for family and personal wellness. 

At the end of 2021, LegalZoom made the official commitment to being a remote-first company. Remote-first means that there is no expectation that Zoomers come into an office for a fixed number of days outside of those employees identified as essential onsite workers. While we remain a remote-first culture, our local offices have evolved as collaboration spaces for Zoomers to meet and engage in person. 

This position will be SF Bay Area or LA Metro, office location.
