Jellysmack is the global creator company that detects and develops the world's most talented video creators on social media. We're an optimistic crew who naturally goes the extra mile, has a glass-half-full mindset, and sees challenges as opportunities. We look for positive people who think outside the box, are inventive, bold, lead change, and believe that teamwork matters.
Jellysmack is looking for a dynamic and business savvy UK qualified lawyer to join our growing EMEA Legal team.
This junior to mid-level attorney role will be focused on contract drafting and negotiation for our rapidly expanding Creator Program as well as media/intellectual property related partnerships. This role will mainly provide support to the contractual and transactional work in the UK, Germany, Benelux and potentially other countries in the EMEA region.
The position will involve owning the deal flow process — from initial request through execution and will require providing quick, concise and commercially focused legal advice. The role will also include maintaining an organized legal documentation system, performing analytical and/or organizational projects and supporting the negotiation of agreements as needed.
The ideal candidate is excited by the opportunity to work and advise on partnerships in the constantly evolving social media creator space, adept at taking and implementing productive feedback, and motivated to build rapport and trust with Legal and Sales and Partnerships team members.
To succeed in this role, candidates should be fast learners, well-organized with excellent interpersonal skills, and have a business-partner mindset. Ideally, this lawyer will be well-versed in technology and media/content or the creator ecosystem.
As this role will involve large amounts of drafting, editing, and writing, excellent writing skills are an absolute must.
This position requires cross-functional collaboration with our global offices (including Los Angeles, New York, and Paris). A London or Paris-based applicant is preferred, but the position will initially be filled remotely.
This role will report to the Head of Legal EMEA based in Paris.
