Are you a business-oriented legal professional who's enough of a generalist to build an in-house legal function from scratch?

If yes, you could be our General Counsel

As a General Counsel at Metacore, you will be responsible for establishing, managing, and developing our legal function from a scratch. You can find your own way of doing that, choosing the tasks you keep in-house and the ones that you would rather outsource to the legal partners of your choice.

Your work will mostly focus on contract law, intellectual properties, and data and privacy, so we hope these topics are familiar to you. This role will be highly independent, calling for a proactive doer who enjoys building something totally new.

People and ops

Responsibilities:

  • You’ll be our first in-house counsel and responsible for establishing, managing, and developing the legal function at our company
  • As a part of that, you’ll establish and manage the network of external law partners

  • You’ll be responsible for all our in-house legal matters, including contracts, patents & IP protection, data & privacy regulation as well as technology license agreements (including open source software and other third-party technologies)
  • Your daily work varies from advising our team regarding the legal topics above to negotiating commercial contracts and developing templates for them
  • You’ll stay up-to-date on any legal changes in the market that might affect the business

Requirements:

  • You’ve got 7+ years of experience as an in-house counsel and/or from a law firm, ideally having worked with or within the technology sector
  • You are a business-oriented law professional who sees the big picture, thinks service-mindedly, and enjoys being a generalist rather than a specialist
  • You are experienced in contract law and contract negotiations, intellectual property rights, and data protection and privacy
  • Drafting and reviewing commercial contracts comes easy to you
  • You have great cooperation and problem-solving skills as well as interpersonal and communication skills
  • You possess a University degree in Law
  • Your possible understanding of employment law and corporate law, as well as international work experience, are considered a plus

About Metacore

Metacore is formed by small game teams, each deciding which games to build, when to ship them, and when to pivot or kill them. As a company, we’re relatively small too. Our headcount is currently 30+, and probably 40+ by the end of this year.

Metacore as a company

Working at Metacore

Metacore is the game company where players are the closest thing to a boss. That gives a lot of independence and responsibility to our game teams and individuals. Together, we work as Metacore – not for or at Metacore. These six points should give you a good hunch of what that means in practise.
