Senior Corporate Counsel Remote (US or Canada) /

Company: 1Password

Over 100,000 businesses and millions of people use 1Password to protect their most important information, and we believe those people – and the companies they work for – shouldn’t have to choose between security and productivity. We see security as a human challenge, rather than a technological one. It’s hard work, but our mission has always been to ease the tension between security and convenience and help people navigate the digital world without fear or friction. Human-centric security is part of our DNA, but human-centricity is also the backbone of our culture. We encourage big ideas and new ways of working that help us to make the online world a safer place for everyone.

Reporting to the Chief Legal Officer, the Senior Corporate Counsel will work on a variety of parent and international subsidiary corporate governance, compliance and regulatory matters with other members of the legal team, and members of our Finance, People, and Marketing teams, among others. You will be working on a variety of projects across the company - some projects will be proactive and owned by you, for others you will be a collaborative member of the team of both internal and external stakeholders to ensure that legal risks have been considered and mitigated wherever possible. The role will be challenging and is expected to evolve over time as the legal team and the broader business scales.
