Jobs & Careers

Posted on Oct 19, 2018

Department: Corporate

Location: Amsterdam, Netherlands

EclecticIQ grows and so does our demand for legal support. The legal aspects of our business are important to us: our intellectual property is our corner asset and requires legal protection, we operate in highly regulated industries, and we deal with serious counterparts all over the globe.

Contracts generally require to be tailored to our situation and we abide strict export regulations and compliance procedures. Legal plays a key role in our commercial processes and all commercial deals require prior legal sign-off on legal terms and deal structure.

Our Legal team’s professional judgment, negotiation- and communication skills are pivotal to bring any deal across the finish line while simultaneously safeguarding our Legal footprint and risk profile.

You will join the corporate organization where our Finance, HR and Legal operations come together – a diverse team of about 8 professionals based in Amsterdam. You know how to stand your ground, have an eye for detail, and operate with unyielding integrity. You are the character type that rather persuades others with on-topic knowledge than with positional force.

We divided our legal subject matter expertise over multiple areas of legal interest. The Sr. Legal Counsel oversees all legal affairs: you will -eventually- become the subject matter expert for sanction- and export regulations, privacy, as well as minimally one other area.

Our approach to applying law is professional yet practical. You will rather spend your time dealing with external parties and defending our interests, than with writing extensive legal memos on hypothetical situations. Having said, we are diligent geeks when it comes to our profession and we do take law very seriously. We expect you to continuously accumulate legal knowledge on your areas of expertise and from time to time, write memos and foster knowledge exchange within our company.
