Brandwatch is looking for its first full time fully qualified Legal Counsel to assist in all legal areas for the company, including commercial contracts with customers, partners and suppliers, compliance with data privacy laws, IP and trademark protection, incorporation of foreign subsidiaries, compliance with employment contracts, etc. The role reports to the CFO and covers all our current operations in the UK, US and Germany and future international subsidiaries as we expand globally.

The successful candidate will have the following skills:

Contracts management
Managing the contracts we have with third parties is, unsurprisingly, the bulk of the work at Brandwatch and comes under 4 headings:

  • Contract negotiations with larger clients
  • Contracts for newer and more complicated reseller and partners
  • Setting up better systems and processes to track and record the contracts and the risks therein
  • Dealing with a miscellany of generally less contentious contracts (employment, suppliers, leases, etc)

The bulk of the daily work at Brandwatch will be in drafting, amending and negotiating contracts with customers and partners.  These occur mostly with customers in the US and UK and typical areas where we customise our standard clauses around data security, service levels and insurance requirements.

The role also includes setting up and standardising reseller and partner programmes: we have started to sell the complimentary products of other social media companies to customers and these other social media companies have started to sell to Brandwatch. We need contracts to reflect these more complicated arrangements.

Our current systems allow us to find our contracts,  but as we grow, we would like to upgrade our systems including having a proper register of legal risks from our contracts.

Other contract management tasks include review and sign off of NDAs, supplier agreements, employment contracts, marketing contracts, etc.

Data Privacy laws

The privacy of people’s data and their personal identifiable information is a complex legal subject with variations between the countries we operate in, differences whether we are the data controller to when we are a data processor and a lot of uncertainty about how to interpret laws that we designed before the era of social media.

We would need our legal advisor to stay up to date on the developments in this area and help inform how we should react and what changes we need to make to the team.

IP considerations
This role will be required to work on copyright and trademark claims and registrations in the UK, Europe and US and potentially worldwide.

Dispute resolution
Although currently not a significant part of the time spent in this role, we do have occasional cases of escalating disputes, e.g., a small number of clients not paying us, a few minor issues involving our reputation, etc.

Another area of potential work is in the application of copyright laws to social media monitoring. While not currently an issue, different countries have different interpretation and a dispute may eventually arise in one of these areas.

Broader areas
The Legal Counsel will also be asked to assist in all legal areas the company, including:

  • Company secretary information
  • Internal governance policies – anti-bribery, equality, data protection.
  • Keeping abreast of legislative changes
  • Reviewing legal risks of expanding into new jurisdictions

Skills and background

  • We are looking for an intelligent and experienced generalist lawyer who is looking for more responsibility
  • 5-7 years qualified
  • Broad legal knowledge (commercial law, corporate law, employment law, intellectual property law etc)
  • Transaction experience (equity funding, debt funding etc) would be an advantage
  • In-depth understanding of how legal issues affect organisations, preferably in the technology/media field.
  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills
  • Ability to anticipate legal issues or risks
  • Competent at managing their own time including  knowing when to call in external counsel and how to improve their own knowledge.

Brandwatch is an inside-out company. We don’t make bold claims and big puffy statements that we can’t back up. We prefer to under-promise and over-deliver – it feels better. We make sure that we believe in everything we say and do. As we do this, we also want to build a movement that other people want to join.

Brandwatch is one of the world’s best Social Media Monitoring applications. We help hundreds of clients discover, understand and respond to comments made on the web.

We are building something special. We have already created the best Social Media Monitoring platform in the world, but that’s just the start. We’re actually on a mission. A mission to bring together the things we do well – engineering, design and understanding customer needs with the huge tech-tonic shifts in the world towards being more online and more open. We are going to create new products that we see as new forms of intelligence to help our current customers and future users be smarter, quicker and more productive. Better. More awesome.

We’re very excited to announce that we have the opportunity to offer a position within our Systems Team to an undergraduate looking to take part in a year in industry as a part of their course. We have fostered a highly dynamic and collaborative environment here at Brandwatch, and would like to hear from anyone who wants to be involved supporting an infrastructure with our scope and scale.

We are looking for strong undergraduates to come and join our systems administration teams (IT and Web Operations) as a junior Linux Systems Administrator.

The ideal intern will be:

  • A capable student with either a good academic track record or an involvement with an existing open-source community
  • A self-starter with passion and drive to make things work
  • Proficient with Linux and unafraid of the command line
  • Involved with solving computer issues for friends and family
  • Keen to experiment with exciting technologies

Our Culture

  • small teams of skilled people, in a friendly and relaxed environment
  • quiet hours for developers so you can work uninterrupted throughout the morning
  • spacious new offices in the Brighton North Laine, with “Who’s coming for burgers on the beach” being a regular lunch time call in the engineering department
  • work with people all over the world…and use telepresence robots for meeting remote colleagues… provided you don’t mind seeing a Berliner colleague’s face rolling past on a robot!
  • “Funky Friday” takes place every other week giving you 10% of your time to work on something new, reading groups, tech talks, generous training and conference budgets, and any technical books you need
  • All the usual start-up temptations…cupboards bursting with snacks (a range to satisfy all taste buds), fruit boxes, drinks fridges, weekly smoothie bar, sushi days, a very energetic foosball table… and of course #c0ffee!

Be Bold, Be Brilliant is our mantra; come join the team!

During this exciting time at Brandwatch we are looking for undergraduates to work on our data collection and analysis team for a year during their year in industry. These teams are involved in extending our web crawlers to cover additional sources, extracting new kinds of metadata, improving algorithms for spam filtering.

We are a group of people around the world working together to create something amazing – doing something no-one has done before, and in a way no-one has thought of. This is the ideal opportunity for undergraduates that are looking to gain industry experience as part of their undergraduate degree and to sink their teeth into a new challenge.  A chance to be a trailblazer. It’s a job that will give you interesting problems to solve, and the chance to learn new skills and work with new technologies.

Here at Brandwatch we work in small product teams. We avoid high-stress environments by working on a single project at a time, putting quality first. We’d rather reduce scope than rush and produce a buggy feature. There will be a lot of whiteboard collaboration with a product owner, UX designer, and back and front-end developers to build really innovative features.

If you’re interested in processing and analysing huge amounts of social media data and are stimulated by finding influential web pages, building conversation graphs or learning how we process millions of tweets each day, then our Data team and Analytics team would like to hear from you.

What are we looking for?

  • A current undergraduate that is looking to join a technology focused and innovative company
  • A self-starter with a passion and a drive for experimentation and technology.
  • Proficient at Java or Javascript.
  • Keen to experiment with technologies such as Spring, Apache Kafka, Hadoop (Data) and PostgreSQL
  • An avid social media user.
