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.

Responsibilities:

  • Draft, review, and negotiate contracts and other agreements, including all of our commercial contracts, technology licences and vendor agreements.
  • Provide legal advice and direction on all matters pertaining to compliance, human resources, data privacy and cybersecurity.
  • Build out and maintain our legal infrastructure and ensure we have the proper policies and procedures in place.
  • Manage relationships with outside counsels across a wide variety of practice areas and identify and procure specialized law firms when necessary.
  • Develop a deep understanding of the complexity of our business and handle deep negotiation of contracts across multiple business units.

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.
  • Technology licensing expert with a solid generalist background
  • Ability to work in a scaling startup environment - this means you wont have an office, but youll have a huge opportunity to make an impact on building out the legal infrastructure

  • Flexible Paid Time Off
