We’re looking for a Regulatory Legal Counsel to sit within our growing Irish team and working closely with the wider Legal team globally. This role can either be done remotely anywhere in Ireland or in our Dublin office.
We are a fast moving business, which deploys changes to its platform through the app store every week. This means that you will be empowered to advise on all stages of the product lifecycle - from idea conception through to post deployment remediation.
We look for people who apply deep logic to their thinking and back everything up with data. We look for natural self-starters who see things through from start to finish, and who learn from every mistake. Does this sound like you?
