Who We Are

Tyro is Australia’s largest fintech and one of the newest banks. We’re giving the business banking world a good shake up, with smart technology that save Australian businesses time and money.

We’re born different.

We don’t follow the easy path, we blaze our own unique trail.

And we want like-minded people who understand where we’re coming from and where we’re going.

When it comes to banks, lots of them say they’re different.

But Tyro really is different. We don’t do mortgages, personal loans, or investments. We’re all about business. 

We may be new, but what we lack in heritage, we make up for with relentless determination and a focus on the future.

Our singular goal is to make life better for business owners with superior products and services that are simple and seamless so our customers, and our people, can keep blazing our own unique trail.

Tyro is going through an exciting growth phase and we are looking to add a qualified Legal Counsel to the team.

Working closely with and reporting to our General Counsel, you will provide legal expertise to assist with commercial decision making by Tyro’s business divisions.

In this role, you will have a varied day and an abundance of learning opportunities.

What You'll Be Doing

  • Giving accurate and timely counsel to executives and business stakeholders, covering a variety of legal areas, including financial services, commercial contracting, privacy and intellectual property
  • Working closely with Tyro’s business units to optimise processes and increase efficiency
  • Reviewing and advising on commercial contracts and marketing materials
  • Monitoring developments in the legal and regulatory environment
  • Assisting in the development of policies, procedures and training programs for staff on relevant legal issues
  • Researching and evaluating different risk factors regarding business decisions and operations
  • Communicating and negotiating with external parties and regulators
  • Engaging and managing external legal advisers

What We're Looking For

  • At least 4 years PQE
  • A current NSW practising certificate
  • An understanding of the financial services industry and relevant experience will be highly regarded
  • Proven in-house legal experience
  • Ability to manage competing priorities and escalations
  • Strong drafting and negotiation skills
  • Ability to provide commercially focused legal support
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills with the ability to communicate to people in a range of positions
  • Interest in process improvement and efficiency (including adoption of technology-enabled solutions)

Why work for us

We're not just like every other bank. Tyro has always been a tech company at heart, but fostering a diverse and inclusive environment, and a passion for continuous learning has always been one of the most important parts of our company's culture.

Tyros are a highly collaborative mix of people. You will work closely with our awesome teams and individuals in engineering, product management, customer support, sales and other functions within the business. Everyone is committed to delivering great outcomes for our customers, and you will have the chance to change the face of banking for Australia businesses.

Our 440 strong team of Tyros, just like our customers, are the lifeblood of our business. We go to great lengths to ensure a positive and enjoyable employee experience for all. We offer some amazing employee benefits such as a generous learning & development budget for training for professional and personal development, 16 weeks paid primary carers leave, 3 weeks paid secondary carers leave, annual team based volunteer day, novated leasing, 17.5% leave loading and not to mention our multiple craft beer kegs (selection of beers carefully selected by our beer connoisseurs), wide selection of wine, variety of snacks and a ping pong table, selection of board and video games and an awesome rooftop area for socialising, all available to be enjoyed.
