Last but not least, you are humble, hardworking, and enjoy collaborating with a team.

Helping to prepare and draft changes to routine contracts, including NDAs and simple services agreements using standard forms, with supervision from legal counsel
Supporting and/or managing other projects with the Shopify Plus legal team as they arise
Communicating with the team’s internal business clients in support of all of the above

As part of your application, please give us your suggestions for how to manage this situation:
Towards the end of the month, where you already have multiple items on your to-do list, an internal sales client reaches out and asks for your help. It’s obvious that this person is feeling some pressure to get their sales agreement finalized and signed by their customer as soon as possible in order for them to meet their sales target for the month. They say it needs to be done by the end of day. How would you work through this scenario?
