About Us:

YipitData is the leading market research firm for the disruptive economy, and recently raised up to $475M from The Carlyle Group at a valuation over $1B.

We analyze billions of data points every day to provide accurate, detailed insights on ridesharing, e-commerce marketplaces, payments and more. Our on-demand insights team uses proprietary technology to identify, license, clean and analyze the data many of the world’s largest investment funds and corporations depend on.

We have amazing reviews on Glassdoor and are one of Inc’s Best Workplaces - a fast-growing technology company with offices in NYC (where we are based in), Hong Kong, and Shanghai, backed by Norwest Venture Partners and The Carlyle Group with a strong culture focused on mastery, ownership, and transparency.

About The Role:

Are you a motivated, collaborative, solutions-oriented attorney looking for a new role in a fast-paced financial tech company? Joining YipitData’s legal team is a rare opportunity to become a core contributor to the success of a company that is building the future of investment research.

At YipitData, our legal team is an essential partner in the company’s growth. As our Product & Privacy Senior Counsel, you’ll have an opportunity to advise teams across our business on a wide-range of product and privacy matters. 

You will help develop and scale YipitData’s licensing and data sourcing strategy. Among others, this position will require expertise in domestic and international privacy laws that impact our products and business operations. And as a member of the legal team at a dynamic and fast-growing company, you’ll have ample opportunity to work on a variety of unique product and privacy matters as well as other legal issues while partnering with teams across the company.

This is a remote-friendly opportunity that can sit in NYC (where our headquarter is located), one of our office hubs (Austin, Miami, Denver, Mountain View, or Seattle), or anywhere else in the US. However, depending upon where the remote work is performed, income could be subject to New York State tax withholding. Please note that we pay NYC-based salaries for US roles regardless of where employees choose to work.

As Our Product and Privacy Counsel You Will:

  • Advise on international data sourcing and compliance; work with outside counsel in regions such as: United Kingdom, Canada, Japan, India, Indonesia, China, and Brazil
  • Advise on firm-wide privacy program, including updating and maintaining privacy policies and DSAR programs in different jurisdictions
  • Drafting and maintaining data processing agreements
  • Conducting transfer impact assessments and privacy impact assessments
  • Advise cross-functional teams on developing a comprehensive, global data governance program
  • Advise upon global privacy law matters relating to the firm’s consumer-facing businesses
  • Collaborate with cross functional teams to implement privacy controls 
  • Draft and negotiate data licenses and other partnership agreements with key strategic vendors that are critical to our business
  • Provide advice to our strategic partnerships and product teams during the development lifecycle to minimize legal risks, ensure compliance with applicable laws, and advance business goals  
  • Monitor new policy developments that may affect our strategic partnerships and product teams; advise teams on potential impacts
  • Drive awareness on data privacy and security issues, including development of training, policies, and guidelines that help business stakeholders spot and address data protection and privacy issues as they emerge in development of new products and technologies
  • Build and enhance the legal team’s processes, efficiency, compliance framework and best practices
  • Serve as the go-to subject matter expert related to privacy, data protection and compliance on calls with customers
  • Provide expertise for special projects, including M&A and new product  development
  • Advise upon and implement a best-in-class global data privacy & protection program that can scale with the business. 

You Are Likely To Succeed If:

  • You have 7+ of legal experience in privacy and data protection issues in a law firm; in-house legal department experience and experience with technology transactions and IP strongly preferred
  •  CIPP certification is strongly preferred
  • You have exceptional communication and stakeholder management skills and can convey complex concepts in simple terms
  • You are very comfortable engaging on technical topics with product and engineering teams
  • You are passionate about data privacy and stay current on all relevant global developments
