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.

Interested candidates should send their CV and a cover letter, including salary expectations to jobs@brandwatch.com

We’re looking for a talented JavaScript developer to join our brand new “Pro/Enterprise” product team. We are finding solutions to difficult problems like real-time user collaboration and features to help our very large clients scale up.

You:

  • are an experienced developer, although the title Software Engineer might well suit you best. You can construct elegant code quickly, and you know it works because TDD is second nature to you.
  • love code units that do one logical thing, but feel irked if you have to write the same code twice – you abstract it away so you don’t have to do it again. When you see a problem in a codebase you add it to your todo list and fix it with your next pull request.
  • are happy reviewing pull requests from others and enjoy getting comments on your code, because you’ll either learn something smart or teach someone else something new.
  • can describe the Observer pattern without thinking and have investigated the many MV* architectures. You’ll happily debate prototypal inheritance vs mixins.
  • love playing with new technology but won’t just jump on the latest bandwagon without evaluating whether it’s a good fit first.

Our Development

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.

You’ll use Git, Backbone.js, Underscore.js, Jasmine and Sinon, Node.js, Express, d3.js (yes, we don’t support IE8), Highcharts, and many other technologies including home-grown open source projects (https://github.com/BrandwatchLtd).

We automate all the things using Hubot, Jenkins, and Github web hooks and are moving towards continuous deployment.

The 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!
  • You get to name your sprints after ridiculous death metal bands (or whatever you like). Go and Google “Hatebeak” right now.
  • “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!

Please send us your CV and covering letter including salary requirements to jobs@brandwatch.com. Include a link to your Github account for a bonus point.
