⚖️ Deputy General Counsel
Remote (US-based) or San Francisco, CA /
Clubhouse is a new type of social product based on voice. It allows people everywhere to talk, tell stories, develop ideas, deepen friendships, and meet interesting new people around the world.
Our early users love the product and we have grown very quickly since we launched in 2020. We take pride in being a small and productive team, with a relentless focus on our product and our community. As a company we are well funded, with backing from top-tier VCs and many of the best angel investors from Silicon Valley and beyond.
We are seeking to add extraordinary people to our growing team. If you think you would be a good fit, please let us know!
As a founding member of Clubhouse’s Legal Team, you’ll cover a lot of ground. You’ll help product teams launch and scale features to millions of users worldwide, and play a key role in developing our privacy, data protection, and intellectual property strategies. You will have the opportunity to help develop the foundations of our business as we expand internationally and optimize for speed and scale.
In this role, you will report to our General Counsel but will partner with many teams across the company, who are spread far and wide. We are a remote friendly-company — with our headquarters in San Francisco, a second office in LA, and a strong commitment to ensuring people can do great work here and thrive without having to live near an office. This role is open to candidates across the U.S.
Who you are
You’re experienced. You have a long track record of helping fast-growing technology companies navigate legal challenges, overcome obstacles, and solve problems.
You’re scrappy and entrepreneurial. You thrive in fast-paced environments and are comfortable with not knowing the answer to something. You’re willing to roll up your sleeves no matter what the challenge is.
You’re creative and collaborative. You work with product and business teams to understand the problems they are trying to solve and the legal risks involved. You identify options and educate your colleagues to equip them to help identify the optimum risk-balanced solutions.
You take pride in what you do. You care deeply about your work. If something seems off, you come up with a good solution and fix it without being asked to do so. You’re proactive with suggestions and people know they can count on you to get things done.
You bias towards action. You deliver solutions that are practical, pragmatic, and efficient. You understand the importance of tradeoffs, and know how to balance legal and business risks. You focus on the things that matter and push back on, or put aside, things that don’t. You make deadlines for yourself and you move fast.
You enjoy your work. You love what you do, not because you feel you have to, but because you’re so excited to create something big for the world. Your favorite thing to do is to take on a huge challenge and pull it off.
You care about doing the right thing. You value diversity, collegiality, and go out of your way to ensure others feel welcome. You enjoy hanging out with your teammates, have a low-ego, and make the workplace more fun for everyone.
What you will do
You’ll solve problems and remove obstacles. You will help product and business teams identify risks and drive solutions that move the business forward. That might involve launching new products and features, structuring business partnerships across the country and around the world, or optimizing legal operations to help us move faster.
You’ll shape strategy. We are early days in everything we’re doing. You will help develop and refine strategies around foundational issues like data privacy, data protection, intellectual property, content safety, platform liability, and international expansion.
You’ll grow and improve rapidly. At Clubhouse you’ll be working with an incredible team, who love to learn from and teach each other. You’ll find yourself stretching into new areas and developing new expertise while being immersed in feedback and challenged by your teammates.
You’ll be an owner. We believe in hiring people and giving them as much responsibility as they can handle.
You’ll create something meaningful. Social products allow people to connect in ways that were never before possible. At Clubhouse, you’ll be figuring out something entirely new for the world—a positive product that brings people’s voices together for deep and meaningful conversations, creates new relationships, builds empathy across cultures, entertains people, and helps people develop ideas that change the course of their lives.
As an early team member at Clubhouse you will be a critical voice and have significant influence over the direction of the company. We will compensate you well, invest deeply in your development, and ensure this is the single best work experience of your life. If you think you might be a good fit for our team, we’d love to hear from you!
