You’ll collaborate extensively with cross-functional stakeholders to help pragmatically navigate novel and complex privacy challenges in innovative ways.

In this role, you will

  • Hands-on experience providing practical and actionable legal guidance regarding risks and obligations under global privacy frameworks (e.g., GDPR, CCPA, COPPA, the ICO’s Age Appropriate Design Code of Conduct)
  • Highly internally-motivated, with a strong capability to effectively drive and manage competing priorities as an individual contributor and/or as part of cross-functional initiatives
