About Toku
At Toku, we are a high-tech global compensation and employment platform, offering the unique capabilities of real-time tax calculations, unified global API for employment solutions, and seamless ability to process non-cash compensation such as stock or token grants.
As a result, Toku has become a fundamental partner for crypto companies and their law firms for token generation events (TGE) and launches. Our newest flagship product — Token Grant Administration (TGA), a token cap table management/system of record for every token for every founder, employee, investor, went from product launch in October to billions of dollars in on-platform value.
Toku raised $20 million from a consortium led by Blockchain Capital with Protocol Labs, GMJP, OrangeDAO, Orrick, Reverie, Quantstamp, Next Web Capital, and prominent angel investors including Protocol Labs founder Juan Benet and Alchemy co-founders Nikil Viswanathan and Joe Lau.

As Toku's Employment Counsel, you will work closely with our Sales and Customer Success teams to advise and manage complex international employment and immigration solutions for clients. This role is global in scope; we understand that it’s a large surface area. We don’t expect you to be an expert in every country’s employment and immigration laws and processes, but we do expect you to be proactive, autonomous, resilient, adaptable, and eager to continually learn and develop professionally.

Responsibilities

  • Act as a liaison with clients, regulatory agencies, and internal teams to effectively manage employment and immigration processes.
  • Work with local counsel to ensure that we are on top of regulations and able to answer client questions in a timely manner.
  • Directly handle all aspects of immigration cases, including application preparation, filing, and follow-up.
  • Offer strategic advice to clients on immigration matters, ensuring that their international workforce complies with local immigration laws.
  • Assist in developing and updating employment and immigration policies and procedures.
  • Research international employment and immigration laws, keeping updated with changing regulations.

Requirements

  • At least 5-7 years of experience in employment or immigration law, with a proven track record in handling complex cases.
  • Prior experience working with an Employer of Record, particularly in a startup environment.
  • A law degree from an accredited institution and a valid license to practice law.
  • Ability to work independently and handle cases directly.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills, with the ability to advise and communicate complex legal matters clearly to clients and stakeholders.
  • A hustler mentality, founding a company or building side projects is a plus!
