Equal Opportunity

At KONUX, we believe that a diverse team achieves better results faster. So here’s the deal: You bring in your very own perspective. We promise to judge your qualifications and performance, not your age, sex, religion, skin color, gender identity, family status or disability.

Your Work

  • Legal Advice: You take responsibility for and drive various legal projects (public tenders, patents, setup of new entities, etc.), and you support our leadership and our teams with ad-hoc advice (contract reviews, data privacy issues, etc.)
  • Structure & Quality: You will deal with a wide range of complex matters, spanning multiple domains from corporate law to contract law and IP, compliance as well as labor law. You prioritize well and can be pragmatic about less impactful topics in order to keep all important balls in the air. You automate processes wherever possible and reduce ad-hoc legal requests
  • Strategy: You set up our legal structures to support KONUX’ mid- and long-term goals, and you take responsibility for strategic topics, such as our compliance and IP strategy
  • Leadership & Collaboration: You coach and spar with your team (initially: one senior legal counsel, one working student), and you build the team as required by company growth. You contribute to internal planning and goal-setting, and you coordinate external legal advisors

Things you bring to the table

  • You are curious to understand new technologies and you love working on a broad range of topics simultaneously
  • You are organized, analytical, and pragmatic, you have business sense and a strong hands-on attitude
  • You have several years full-time work experience as a legal counsel in start-ups or SMEs; first leadership experience would be very welcome
  • You have excellent knowledge in two or more domains out of the following: corporate, contract, IP/IT (AI, SaaS), or tender law
  • You are familiar with MS Office and/or G-Suite and will easily learn new tools (like Slack, Confluence etc.)
  • You are a German qualified lawyer (Volljurist/in bzw. Syndikusrechtsanwalt/-anwältin)
  • You have full working proficiency in English and German

Nice to Have

  • Experience with other (European) jurisdictions outside Germany
  • An LL.M. from the US

Sounds exciting? We are looking forward to hearing from you!
