Open positions: Helsinki

Legal Counsel

Are you an experienced lawyer whose heart beats for technology, open source, IPR, privacy and data protection? You have a university degree in legal, passion for business and at least 5 years of experience as in-house lawyer or in a law firm with international clients. Excellent communication skills in English and in Finnish are a must; German language skill is an asset.

You will build our privacy and data protection program, train our people accordingly as well as consult in client projects if needed. You will support business in negotiating complex business and technology agreements internationally. You will develop the standard for legal agreements and processes used for creating digital services. You will also help us scale globally with a consistent, but locally relevant approach. And yes, this will include some travelling.

Who are we?

We have offices in four different countries, with over 300 employees from over 30 different countries. We work with major international companies and build services used by millions of their customers in work and leisure. And we’re growing and changing as a company. So we want you to be passionate about growing as a person and professional. Whenever you need support, we’ll do all we can to help you move in the direction you want. At Futurice you’ll work side by side with world-class experts from other fields in a Europe’s premier digital services consultancy.

We offer a work culture that has been awarded internationally. Our core values are care, trust, transparency, and continuous improvement that we try to embrace and share as much as possible. Futurice boils down to freedom and responsibility. You’ll be given freedom to make your life here as rewarding as possible and to do things your way. You’ll be expected to take responsibility for your own work and how the company as a whole operates. And you’ll be heard. We value everyone’s input into how the company is run. Experiment. Try new things. Drive what you are passionate about. Fail interestingly, succeed spectacularly. These are the sort of things we’ll give you a lot of leeway to do. We have also a social responsibility program that you can give back to the community through, too.
