Our client is a data innovation startup that transforms raw data into a source for business and investment professionals to better understand consumer and business behavior. The company has exclusively retained Solutus Legal Search to assist it in hiring an outstanding attorney to serve as Corporate Counsel reporting directly to the General Counsel & Chief Operating Officer. The company is headquartered in New York City and has a growing team in Dublin. The company is well-funded and backed by tier-one venture capital.
The Corporate Counsel will be the second attorney at the company and will have a primary responsibility for a wide range of commercial, technology, licensing, and customer transactions. The role will also focus on product regulatory and data privacy compliance and due diligence. Further responsibilities will include oversight of employment issues and support of strategic financial initiatives and fundraising. The ideal candidate will fulfill the following requirements:
- 5 to 8 years of experience with an in-house legal department or law firm focused on negotiating and drafting commercial and technology agreements and customer contracts, preferably (but not necessarily) in a data analytics or investment management context;
- Experience working with and advising compliance, product, and sales teams;
- Ability to build on and implement data privacy and other internal compliance programs;
- A self-starter who is excited to take on a diverse array of projects, large and small, in order to help the company grow and thrive.
This is a fantastic ground-floor opportunity to positively impact the business and become an important contributor to the company’s continued success. Our client offers competitive compensation, including equity, and comprehensive benefits along with a flexible and generous time off policy. This role may be based in New York or can be remote. The company has recently welcomed employees back to their New York headquarters, but many continue to work remotely from home.
