From the Hiring Manager:

Hello!

I’m Jennifer, Director, Legal at Resolver. I manage and mitigate legal risks for Resolver, oversee compliance, structure and implement legal operations, and help keep the sales gong ringing!

We are looking for legal counsel to assist with commercial contracting and to help cover Resolver’s day to day legal needs. You will work closely with our excellent sales team and join our VP of Sales, Sales Managers, and AEs on calls to negotiate sales agreements. You must love the thrill of closing deals and employ a solutions-based approach to negotiation. It always helps if you can disarm counsel and procurement/business teams by breaking down legal positions or technical jargon into relatable and easy to understand explanations.

Ideally, you’re interested in new developments in data privacy and cyber security, and you like thinking through the legal implications of new software features that use machine learning. You’ll have many opportunities to work with our infosec, product, and support teams on new initiatives and to reinforce our privacy stance.
I'd love to hear from you if the above sounds like you or sounds appealing to you!
