TrueMotion offers auto insurers a mobile telematics platform that enables next-generation digital programs. Powered by mobile technology, machine learning, and data science, our patented smartphone data platform can accurately determine when a person is driving and reveal her behaviors behind the wheel, including distracted driving. This unique data powers usage-based insurance, distracted driving programs, claims services, and fleet management programs.  We are motivated by three things: working with great people who make it fun to be at work every day, solving hard problems, and making driving safer and more affordable. As we rapidly scale, we are looking to hire a Director of Legal to advise and oversee all legal matters. Reporting to our CFO with a dotted line to our CEO, your primary area of focus will be owning our commercial contracts and technology licensing.

  • Manage relationships with outside counsels across a wide variety of practice areas and identify and procure specialized law firms when necessary.

Qualifications

  • J.D. degree from a law school accredited by the American Bar Association
  • 5-10 years of legal experience, with a minimum of 5 years of experience at a major law firm or in industry.  A combination of law firm and in-house experience a plus.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?
