Dandy is a business-in-a-box for dentists. Our vision is to become the operating system for every dental office in America by leading the transition to digital dentistry for the $200 billion industry. Headquartered in New York City, Dandy is backed by the world's leading venture capital investors.

Job Overview:

We are seeking a proven General Counsel to lead and build our Legal function. Based in our New York City headquarters office, this role will be a critical partner to our founders and executive team. 

We are looking for a senior leader with experience in successfully building and leading the legal function at high growth tech companies.  The ideal candidate will have experience working with rapidly maturing companies and must be excited to roll up their sleeves and become a part of the business.  You will lead the build-out of a scalable legal and compliance team to support a rapidly growing, complex and innovative operating business and to provide the critical legal guidance and administrative capabilities that will enable Dandy to build scalable foundations during a period of rapid and sustained growth.

Key Outcomes/What You’ll Do:

  • Lead and define Dandy’s legal strategy and priorities
  • Build our core legal processes and lay the groundwork for efficiently scaling Dandy’s legal organization
  • Partner with business and product teams to execute on priority objectives, including development of existing products, new business lines, go-to-market, M&A, and international expansion
  • Advise on compliance, employment and contract matters, managing outside counsel relationships where appropriate
  • Own our network of outside counsel relationships to ensure scalable access to deep subject matter expertise, especially on IP, healthcare compliance, litigation, and transactional matters
  • Help shape the regulatory landscape for the future of dentistry

You Are:

  • Creative and flexible. Taking on ambiguous and complex problems outside the scope of your past expertise doesn't faze you. You know how to work with business leaders to unblock and de-risk new opportunities.
  • Impact-driven. You care about your impact upon the world. That means more building and less talking as you work toward something that has a chance to change people’s lives.
  • Scrappy. You can build teams and direct the work of others, but you're still happy to roll up your sleeves and get the job done yourself if need be.
  • A Leader. You’re kind, charismatic and humble. Teams want to be in the trenches with you, and to build something great by your side.

Role Requirements:

  • Practicing attorney with 15+ years of experience in NY or California in a law firm and/or in-house legal department with leadership responsibility

  • Flexibility, eagerness to work on a broad variety of legal matters
  • High integrity, well-organized, with the intensity to manage numerous priorities simultaneously
  • Proven ability to thrive in a fast-paced, disruptive culture
