About you 

Youโ€™ll thrive as Senior Product Counsel if you:

  • Have knowledge of web frameworks and an understanding of web infrastructure.
  • Are a motivated self-starter with the ability to self-serve on a majority of privacy and contractual issues and collaborate with SMEs when necessary. 
  • Are adaptable and an effective multi-tasker, with a demonstrated ability to manage and prioritize multiple, often competing, demands for your time.
  • Are a creative thinker, collaborative, and excited to contribute to a lean but growing Legal team on a variety of projects which may fall outside of your core expertise. 
  • Have a track record of forming and maintaining strong partner and cross-functional relationships.
  • Have a minimum of five years of privacy/product counseling experience, preferably in-house at a tech or a SaaS company.
  • Have a JD and at least one active state bar membership (CIPP certification preferred, not required).

Even if you donโ€™t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. Research shows that you may still be considered for a role if you meet just half of the requirements.

  • Obsess over customer experience. We deeply understand what weโ€™re building and who weโ€™re building for and serving. We define the leading edge of whatโ€™s possible in our industry and deliver the future for our customers.
  • Move with heartfelt urgency. We have a healthy relationship with impatience, channeling it thoughtfully to show up better and faster for our customers and for each other. Time is the most limited thing we have, and we make the most of every moment.
  • Say the hard thing with care. Our best work often comes from intelligent debate, critique, and even difficult conversations. We speak our minds and donโ€™t sugarcoat things โ€” and we do so with respect, maturity, and care.
  • Make your mark. We seek out new and unique ways to create meaningful impact, and we champion the same from our colleagues. We work as a team to get the job done, and we go out of our way to celebrate and reward those going above and beyond for our customers and our teammates.
