Figma is adding to our team of passionate people who are revolutionizing the world of design. We are building a browser-based design tool that looks and feels as good as a native application and has all the additional power and advantages that come from being built upon the web platform. If you’re looking to work at a dynamic company that is building the future of design tools, welcome to Figma. We're looking for an attorney with strong experience advising on commercial and technology matters to join our legal team. You will be the first (and founding!) member of the legal department outside of the United States. Your primary responsibility will be to support our growing EMEA-based sales and marketing teams. However, as a member of a small legal team and the only attorney outside of the United States, you will also have the opportunity to work on a range of matters across all of Figma’s departments.
What you’ll do:
- Draft, review, and negotiate agreements with enterprise customers, partnering closely with our sales team
- Develop materials and conduct training sessions on legal forms, processes and issues
- Design, implement, and improve Figma’s legal policies and procedures to manage legal and business risk on a global scale
- Provide practical advice to business clients on a wide-ranging set of legal issues, including privacy, regulatory, and employment matters
What we’re looking for:
- License to practice law in the United Kingdom
- Experience reviewing, drafting, and negotiating enterprise sales agreements
- Experience analyzing and advising on a wide range of legal issues related to technology platforms, particularly privacy and regulatory issues
- Collaborative approach, with strong ability to build relationships, gain credibility, and partner with others
- High degree of empathy and a focus on promoting a team-oriented culture of engagement, positive workplace relationships and recognition
- Strong work ethic and low ego, and a willingness to tackle projects both large and small
- Confidence operating in a fast-paced, rapidly changing environment
Here are some projects you could work on:
- Help drive negotiation strategy for enterprise customers, including setting and implementing policies on negotiation thresholds and legal and business terms
- Become the “go to” lawyer for our international team
- Spearhead EMEA privacy and data compliance efforts in response to increasing business complexity and evolving regulatory frameworks
