  • Draft bespoke contracts from scratch for novel situations
  • Respond to a wide variety of legal questions that arise from across the business in day-to-day operations

  • Knowledge and experience with intellectual property law, employment law and/or dispute resolution processes is a bonus 
  • A team spirit allowing you to work well under pressure while maintaining kindness and compassion and a sense of the bigger picture
  • A strong internal drive to perform at a high level, and prepared to run with matters without significant oversight or day-to-day management
  • A growth mindset with the technical ability to research legal matters
  • Strong business acumen with a desire to understand the impact that your work has on the business and the ability to act accordingly
  • Excellent verbal and written English language proficiency with a solid understanding of fundamental legal concepts

Our biggest challenge right now 

  • Superside is a fast-growing nimble company. The legal team must ensure that it enables the company to continue moving fast while meeting its own objectives to ensure that there is a sound legal basis for decisions and that legal risk is appropriately mitigated. 

Superside’s vision is to create more equal opportunities globally by accelerating the world’s transition to online work. With that in mind, we’ve built a natively remote company enabling us to attract the best talent no matter where they are.

Need more convincing? Here’s a skimmable, non-exhaustive list of reasons to join us:

– A global community of talented people working from more than 60 different countries.

– Flexible working hours and fully remote setup. We’ve been remote from day one. No weird office legacy.

– A high-pace, high-energy, and high-performance environment.

– Trusting, ego-free and truth-seeking team members.

– Pioneering the future of work with a fair, friendly and supportive community. We’re pretty proud of this one.

– A career path toward increased responsibility, mentorship and leadership. We grow, you grow.

– Join us at the right time: impact the product as you would do in a startup with the resources of a profitable scaleup. 

– See something you want to improve? Awesome. We’re a flexible and collaborative team that is always learning and growing. 

– Disrupting a massive global industry with a huge market opportunity.
