Corporate Counsel

Red Ventures, Charlotte, NC

Digital Consumer Choice Platform

Red Ventures uses cutting-edge machine learning / artificial intelligence systems to design and implement digital marketing campaigns and websites for some of the biggest brands in the world, as well as for Red Ventures owned and operated sites such as CNET, Metacritic, GameSpot, Giant Bomb, MYMOVE, Healthline, Bankrate, CreditCards.com, The Points Guy, and Lonely Planet. We are the best at what we do, which has made us a multi-billion dollar business that continues to grow rapidly both nationally and internationally. Red Ventures is a great place to work. Our culture is second to none, our facilities and perks are insane, and we give back to our communities.

Red Ventures provides services across many industries and as a member of our legal team you will have the opportunity to advise across a multitude of industries with unique business and legal considerations.  With an environment that presents unique and evolving challenges, we need a talented, creative, multi-faceted Corporate Counsel who can hit the ground running. In this position, you will work closely with our business teams to push the needle forward as a partner in the deal. We are looking for someone well-versed in contract drafting and negotiation, and who can advise and guide our business teams on the best strategy for each situation.

What You’ll Do:

  • Build our procurement process and related documents with our business and procurement teams
  • Draft, negotiate, and execute commercial agreements (think SaaS, consulting, content production, IT support, and data licensing contracts)
  • Grow the team - identify, hire, and manage teammates, such as contract administrators, paralegals, and other lawyers
  • Be a trusted legal advisor as part of the business teams’ efforts to establish, evaluate, and expand new business initiatives and product development
  • Provide day-to-day legal perspective and business-oriented guidance - help spot legal issues and recommend practical solutions that appropriately balance risk management within business operations
  • Stay current on digital advertising and marketing law trends, industry issues, and novel approaches to legal services, and maintain a working understanding of digital technologies (you don’t need to be an expert, but if we say “cookies,” your first instinct shouldn’t be “chocolate chip or oatmeal?”)
  • Help increase effectiveness, and efficiency, of legal-business support through development of enterprise forms, contract playbooks, and legal compliance tools

What We’re Looking For:

  • Juris Doctor degree from an ABA-accredited U.S. law school, and member of the bar of a U.S. jurisdiction
  • 5+ years of solid, consistent experience working with business teams in connection with corporate legal matters (ideally all with one employer)
  • Core competencies in contract review, drafting, and negotiation
  • If you have industry-specific experience or interest, let us know! Acronyms and buzzwords that come up across our legal team include things like the FTC, TCPA, HIPAA, FCRA, CCPA/GDPR, IAB, SEO, CRM, paid search, programmatic, ad-tech/mar-tech
  • Red Ventures is a flat organization where everyone contributes – being ready and willing to roll up your sleeves on tasks big and small, and to seek out answers and resources when needed, will serve you well here
  • Ability to operate in a dynamic environment and navigate amid uncertainty with a can-do, problem-solving attitude is a must!  We are not the legal team of “no” or ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ - instead we are equal parts risk identifiers and problem solvers.  And if you can liven up your legal advice with some humor, that is a plus (and always encouraged)
