Additionally, you will oversee TiVo’s privacy and other product compliance efforts, including leading cross-functional teams to ensure that the Company meets its regulatory obligations.  This is a broad role in support of key business objectives of the company, with title and salary commensurate with experience.

Here is what you'll get to do:

  • Advise clients on a wide range of issues related to marketing and advertising programs, including the review of marketing content, including terms of service, press releases and other marketing collateral.
  • Oversee project management of TiVo’s U.S. privacy compliance efforts, including compliance with the California Consumer Privacy Act.

  • Take the lead on critical cross-functional projects to ensure that the Company complies with its contractual and regulatory obligations.
  • Provide client education and training on relevant legal issues, develop processes and forms to support business marketing needs and efficiencies
  • Get hands-on experience partnering with the business and technology teams to achieve business objectives in a legal and ethical manner.

  • You are detail oriented, enjoy working in a fast-paced, collegial environment and have experience independently supporting business and product teams. This requires good communication and teamwork skills (with members of the legal team as well as the ability to speak “non-lawyer” with business partners throughout the company).
  • You have a 5+ years of marketing/privacy experience, including working in-house with technology companies.
  • JD with strong academic credentials and California bar license or ability to practice in California as a registered in-house counsel.
