DESCRIPTION

At quip, we design and deliver delightful products and services that keep your mouth healthy.

We’ve assembled a design-focused, customer-centric team with top talent from across the healthcare and direct-to-consumer industries to create a one-stop shop for consumers and providers that makes the oral care experience simple, affordable, and fun.

We’re looking for a General Counsel to join quip and spearhead a variety of legal needs for our growing team. We recently raised a $100 million growth round in August 2021 and now serve over 8 million customers in more than 100 countries. As our business continues to grow, we’re ready for someone in- house who truly understands our vision and knows how to get there - legally. You will be a critical member of the cross-functional leadership team, reporting directly to the Chief Business Officer and the Board of Directors to advise all teams within quip, as well as liaise between quip and outside counsel when necessary.

As General Counsel, we are looking for a business-minded, risk-management partner. You will be our go-to person in providing sound legal advice and strategic decision-making for the company as we expand our oral care offerings as a CPG business and dental technology platform to new geographies. The ideal candidate will have experience building a strategy across regulatory, risk, and compliance functions at a healthcare or high-growth startup. To excel in this role, you’ll be a self-starter and problem-solver who enjoys working in a fast-paced, collaborative environment and is equipped for the unexpected.

This role reports into the Chief Business Officer.

About quip

Most of us aren’t brushing our teeth correctly, either because we don’t know how to do it right, or because we just don’t feel like it. At quip, we design delightful products and experiences to help you care for your mouth better. Our initial product is a beautifully simple electric toothbrush and toothpaste that was featured by Time Magazine as one of the 25 Best Inventions of 2016. With refill brush heads and toothpaste arriving on a 3-monthly schedule. We pride ourselves on great design and our brand values of simplicity, honesty and accessibility, which are applied throughout our community. We are excited to apply these principles to the acceleration of our digital patient-professional advice and services platform.

quip is committed to promoting equality, inclusion, and diversity beyond your brushing routine. We believe our company is better equipped to care for every mouth when we listen to fresh perspectives from every voice, and in doing so, we build an equal-opportunity team of the brightest minds (and mouths)—regardless of race, gender, age, religion, sexual orientation, identity, or any other trait that makes you you. By celebrating and supporting our differences, we will thrive in our mission to improve oral health for all.
