About the Role:
As Counsel, you will be a cross-functional advisor to Capsule teams across all legal workstreams, with a focus on commercial contracting, corporate, and privacy law matters. You will report to the Deputy General Counsel and collaborate closely with members of the Capsule Legal team and other internal teams. Specifically, you will:
- Assist Capsule’s Associate General Counsel - Corporate / Commercial in the preparation, review, and negotiation of commercial agreements, including vendor agreements, strategic partnership agreements, supplier and wholesaler agreements, NDAs, employee agreements, and other agreements;
- Support the growth and longevity of the business as a whole by working with the Legal team and Capsule leadership on corporate transactions and financings;
- Update company policies to address privacy law legislative developments and assist with responding to customer privacy requests and other customer matters;
- Mitigate legal and compliance risk by researching and spotting issues related to privacy law, consumer protection legislation, commercial and contractual matters, and other legal matters; and
- Advise and provide support on other legal matters as needed.
- You take pride in enabling the best work of others on the team. You think ahead to anticipate the needs of your teammates and you give and get all the facts making it easy for others to make decisions.

- You thrive on being pushed and challenged. You communicate effectively both in written form and live / on your feet - you are not fazed by tough questions in the moment.
- You strike the right balance between putting enough work in to share something, but not going off into a corner for weeks at a time to polish something to perfection.
- You check your ego at the door. You are interested in finding the right answer vs. always having the right answer.
- Licensed to practice law and in good standing with at least one state bar (New York preferred).
- 2+ years of experience in corporate and commercial transactional and/or privacy law work at a national law firm.
- In-house legal department experience at a high growth startup is a plus.
