This will primarily entail supporting a variety of customer and partner transactions, but may also include support for other business unit and company-wide legal needs. Our legal department is full of legal innovators who are energetic, smart and business-minded on the professional front, and genuinely good people on the personal front. We love to add attorneys who maintain the highest business and professional standards and who aren’t afraid to bring their true selves to work each day.

Core Responsibilities

Assist with other Security Business Unit and company-wide legal needs as directed.

Anything else that gets thrown your way as needed to support a dynamic, innovative company.

Required Skills:

12+ years of transactional commercial legal experience, supporting a dynamic global software, SaaS/cloud, or technology services provider.

Significant experience in SaaS and software transactions, preferably with a company of significant size and scale.

You are an excellent negotiator who knows how to keep complex legal negotiations simple and clear.

You “own” the transactions on which you work, and take personal responsibility for completing them, including driving all participants and functions to complete their required actions.

You can act and think independently, and apply sound judgement in all situations.

You are a practical and proactive problem solver who possesses strong business acumen and is confident and calm under fire.

You are able to prioritize and juggle multiple tasks in a fast-paced environment and get the right things done.

You have strong interpersonal skills.
