Google Legal is a close-knit team of lawyers and legal professionals who operate on a truly global stage. We take pride in working for a company with a clear mission (“to organise the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful”) and a real soul (“don’t be evil”). Google’s innovative services raise challenging legal questions that demand creative and practical answers. We work at the crossroads of new technologies and existing laws to provide those answers, helping Google build innovative and important products for our users around the world. If this sounds like your kind of place, it probably is.
You’ll play a vital role in our growing team by advising the company on a wide range of legal issues throughout the Sub-Saharan African region. You are a technology lawyer by heart and experience; a fully qualified lawyer in the US or the United Kingdom and preferably you are also a fully qualified lawyer in a Sub-Saharan African country. You will be required to explain complex local legal issues to business, product and engineering colleagues and shape a pragmatic and efficient legal strategy for all of their projects. Additionally, you’ll collaborate with Google Legal teams throughout Europe and the US, to provide legal advice and coordinate legal disputes with internal and external stakeholders. You’re hardworking, patient and an outstanding communicator; able to produce high-quality work in a flexible, fast-paced environment. A deep understanding of Google’s business and the ability to think quickly and practically are essential attributes for this job.
