About the Role;
Reporting to the Head of Legal, you will a provide a full range of commercial legal support to the company and its group companies. The role will primarily focus on supporting the sales team on B2B customer contracts, as well as providing support to the other functions of the company on a variety of legal matters. You will also support on privacy and data protection matters and assist in implementing security regulations. You will draft and negotiate a range of commercial contracts (UK, US, and International), T&C's and other legal documents with a focus on agreements relating to equipment and component supply, hardware sales, software licensing and cloud services.
You must be a qualified solicitor with a minimum of 4 years' PQE. Ideally, you will have strong experience in-house or at a top law firm (with secondment experience), with a focus on tech or commercial transactions. It would be useful to have prior experience with SaaS agreements, software licensing agreements and data privacy, though this is not essential.
If you wish to join a dynamic environment that seeks to resolve real world problems, then this is the role for you. Not only is this an opportunity with a start-up that develops ground-breaking technology; there is also a highly inclusive atmosphere, an excellent work/life balance, a hybrid working model in place, and a competitive salary. You will be joining a very lean legal function, meaning the role will be autonomous and you will be able to define your remit as it is a newly created position.
Please note our advertisements use PQE/salary levels purely as a guide. However we are happy to consider applications from all candidates who are able to demonstrate the skills necessary to fulfil the role.
