OVERVIEW 

Braze is seeking an experienced privacy lawyer to advise on a wide array of privacy matters. While we expect the successful candidate will have a broad knowledge of global privacy laws, especially GDPR, this role will focus on U.S. privacy laws, including the CCPA, CPRA, HIPAA, VCDPA, COPPA and others. This individual will advise across all areas of privacy, including SaaS agreements, vendor agreements,  handling of employee PII, and general B2B marketing strategies.  

We're looking for someone who thrives in a fast-paced environment, enjoys a challenge, is self-motivated, goes the extra mile, can effectively juggle multiple projects, and is willing to learn, pitch in and play a significant role. Strong relationships with internal stakeholders are a must, and you'll need to effectively collaborate with colleagues around the company to solve intricate problems. You’ll work with outside counsel, help educate our internal clients, and play a role in building out our legal team.

This is a great opportunity for a young lawyer to move into tech at a leading technology company that is growing quickly, scaling wisely and offering tremendous opportunity for someone who is willing to jump on board and do what it takes. And finally, we are seeking someone who will care deeply about the employee experience and is able to enjoy and contribute to fostering a positive work culture.
