[As of June 2020, Quora has become a "remote-first" company. This position can be performed remotely from anywhere in the United States, regardless of any location that might be specified above.]

About Quora:

The vast majority of human knowledge is still not on the internet. Most of it is trapped in the form of personal experience in people's heads, or buried in books and research papers that only experts can access. More than a billion people use the internet, yet only a tiny fraction contribute their knowledge to it. We want to democratize access to knowledge of all kinds -- from politics to painting, cooking to coding, etymology to experiences -- so if someone out there knows something, anyone else can learn it. Our mission is to share and grow the world's knowledge, and we're building a world-class team to help us achieve this mission.

About the Team:

The Quora legal team is a highly collaborative, bright and talented group of individuals who partner closely with the product and business teams to support the company’s innovation and growth.
