Team: Legal

The Role

**Los Angeles, San Francisco, or Remote (US-based) **

Come be the third lawyer on our small but mighty legal team! You’ll serve as primary legal advisor to various teams, supporting them on new products, services, and programs, from inception to launch. You’ll provide legal advice across a range of subjects, advising and partnering with internal teams, particularly our content and customer support teams to start, as well as leading efficiency projects. You’ll help build, develop and manage operational processes, playbooks and various internal trainings (e.g. privacy and intellectual property), while leading highly visible projects impacting the entire organization and serving our 75 million listeners worldwide.

The perk of a profitable smaller company? There is an almost limitless array of opportunities to add value related to risk and managing risk, protecting our business value, IP and users’ data, and generally helping the business move faster but sustainably. This is a fun role where you’re guaranteed to learn and have an impact every single day. You’ll report to the Director of Legal and have the chance to implement tools as needs grow and we scale.
