  • Respond promptly to legal requests from Sales, Finance, Products, Business Development, Marketing, Human Resources, and other clients, summarizing and communicating legal concepts that businesspeople can implement
  • Counsel on evolving EU data protection and privacy regulations and best practices, including GDPR and DPAs
  • Manage agreements that comply with company policies and risk tolerance

What you’ll bring:

  • A minimum of seven years of in-house and/or top-tier law firm experience in technology licensing or transactional law
  • Qualified and in good standing or otherwise authorized to practice law (e.g., have registered in-house status) in the state in which you reside
  • Demonstrated experience advising clients in structuring complex domestic and international transactions
  • Background in drafting and negotiating service agreements, sales contracts, licenses, alliance agreements, and intellectual property agreements

What success looks like:

 After six months, you will…

  • Develop a strong understanding of Infoblox’s products and business model
  • Build partnerships with cross-functional leaders
  • Focus negotiations on the most critical aspects of Infoblox’s objectives

 After about a year, you will…
