You will work closely with our growing sales organization and own contracts with our most high profile event organizers in music, sports, and more!


THE TEAM

We are a small (but growing!) legal team and we believe this role is an outstanding career growth opportunity.

  • Enforce Eventbrite’s contractual rights and manage legal issues related to underperforming contracts
  • Provide practical legal support across the company in structuring and negotiating vendor agreements
  • Remain up-to-date on commercial and industry developments to ensure an ongoing ability to provide excellent legal advice
  • Coordinate and manage internal projects, trainings, processes, and drive cross-functional efforts to successful completion

THE SKILL SET

  • J.D. degree and membership in at least one state bar
  • 4-6 years of combined legal experience at a global law firm and/or in-house legal department at a technology company
  • Extensive commercial experience, including drafting and negotiating SaaS and other services agreements, licenses and strategic transactions
  • Familiarity with GDPR, CCPA, and data processing agreements
  • A confident, effective, and positive negotiator who can lead the process, focus on important issues, and efficiently bring deals to a favorable close
  • Intellectual flexibility and business-oriented attitude
  • Creative and practical legal counselor who can communicate information accurately and completely, while being concise and digestible for non-lawyers
  • Ability to organize, prioritize and manage deadlines in a fast-paced and demanding work environment
  • Thoughtful and persuasive interpersonal skills and ability to build and maintain strong working relationships
  • Collaborative team player combined with ability to work independently and exercise sound judgment
  • Very important to have a sense of humor and enjoy practicing law

BONUS POINTS

  • Contract management experience
  • Understanding of transactions involving recoupable payments and secured transactions
  • Understanding of insurance: event cancellation, general liability, cyber liability, E&O
  • Basic understanding of employment law
  • Basic understanding of regulation and policy related to product development and market expansion
