Job Title
Sr. Counsel/AGC – Product (San Francisco or Phoenix)


Our client, a well-funded, cutting-edge pre-public technology company, seeks to hire an experienced product and/or regulatory attorney to join its small, but growing, legal team. The key focus of this role will be partnering with product development and operational business teams to ensure products, marketing collateral, and processes comply with applicable laws and protect customer privacy and company intellectual property. This role will support our client’s business teams which could include just about every service associated with a purchase or sale of a home (mortgage, inspection, brokerage services, home customization, insurance, warranties).



  • J.D. from an accredited law school and licensed to practice law in California or Arizona (registered in house counsel is acceptable);
  • At least 8 years of legal experience, including in house experience with a rapidly growing consumer-facing technology company. Law firm candidates with significant experience advising companies on product related issues will be considered.
  • Knowledge and experience applying regulations and industry guildelines (e.g., TILA, RESPA, FDCPA, TCPA, CAN-SPAM, impending CCPA);
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills – clear and conscise disclosures, terms of use, policies and process documents are highly valued by our client; and
  • The ability to work independently, think creatively and flexibly, and provide practical legal solutions.


Our client seeks a go-getter with the ability to quickly build rapport with business teams and calibrate compliant advice and strategy based on a practical approach to risk tolerance. The legal department is extremely collegial and friendly with a good sense of humor. The ideal candidate will thrive in such an environment. This is an outstanding opportunity for the right attorney to take on interesting work and assume a great deal of responsibility at a fast-paced, creative, high-growth, and disruptive company. Our client offers competitive compensation, including equity, comprehensive benefits, and startup perks. Title and compensation will be dependent on directly relevant experience.
