Your profile

  • 5+ years of relevant experience ideally with a mix of law firm and in-house technology focused experience across Europe (and the United Kingdom).
  • Proven ability to get up to speed quickly, learn new areas of law, function independently, and provide pragmatic business focused advice to non-lawyers across every level of the business from recent college graduates to the country managers.
  • Highly collaborative person who champions our mission and wants to win as a team.
  • Superior organizational skills, attention to detail, and an offbeat sense of humor are always welcome.
  • Fluent in both English and French and able to perform written and verbal legal work in both languages



  • Competitive salary, equity, benefits, and perks for all full-time employees
  • Employer-paid medical, dental, and vision insurance (Country specific)
