You will work closely with the Product Legal team and other legal functions and business teams to develop, implement, and maintain appropriate policies and procedures for the company. You will partner with the Product Legal team to oversee outside counsel and manage budgets.

You are someone who loves to investigate the technical details of a complex project or product, identify and assess risks, and propose realistic solutions that take into account competing business interests. You will help create and implement processes to ensure alignment with the Company’s values and compliance with evolving laws and regulations. You possess a strong sense of ethics and a refined risk tolerance. Your diligence, judgment, and discretion make you a trusted counterpart in sensitive environments.

Our most successful team members excel in a dynamic, fast-paced environment and can drive projects of varying complexity in collaboration with multiple teams.  They embrace new challenges and the unexpected and can clearly distill their analysis into actionable and scalable guidance, always in consideration of the diverse needs of their business stakeholders.  They are willing to jump in to assist their colleagues on any project, large or small, regardless of whether it falls within their scope of expertise.
