The Opportunity

Modern Tribe is searching for a Contract Specialist to be a champion for the Sales, Ops and Finance teams. This role helps to navigate and drive forward our customer procurement process. In this role, the contract specialist will analyze and interpret a wide range of customer contracts. You should have an in-depth understanding of the procurement process, contract agreements and legalese. If you thrive on evaluating contract content and terms, monitoring contract compliance, negotiating complex contract modifications, gathering vendor validation documentation, and responding to customer procurement questions…this gig might be for you.

Inclusion Statement

Modern Tribe is committed to a culture that embraces diversity and inclusion. We foster an environment of collaboration, open engagement, fairness and respect regardless of differences in age, race, disability, national origin, gender identity, religion, sexual orientation or veteran status. As a hybrid workspace ranging from distributed contractors to traditional employees, we value the unique perspectives and experiences of our global team.

We come from all walks of life. We are small business owners. We are tattoo aficionados and 80’s movie buffs and ex-pats. We are homeschool teachers. We are single parents. We are musicians, college drop-outs, and entrepreneurs. We are travelers, feminists, runners, volunteers, and makers. We are a Modern Tribe.

Everyday we strive to fulfill our motto: live well and do good work. We hope you will consider joining us.
