Posted on Tuesday, August 29, 2023
Do you want to join us on the journey of disrupting the spend management business? Do you like to work in a fast-paced scale-up with a passionate and supportive team? Yokoy is hiring!
After closing our $80M Series B funding last year and going through a hyper growth phase, we are now striving to lead the tech-focused transformation in our field and become the number 1 all-in-one spend management suite for midsize and enterprise companies. Join us as our new Commercial Lawyer in Vienna and help us achieve our goals! 🚀
As a Commercial Lawyer at Yokoy, you are responsible for negotiating commercial contracts with our partners, clients, and suppliers independently, as well as support our Data Protection Officer (DPO) regarding data privacy/compliance matters. We are a product-driven company, and a visionary best-in-class product is the key for our customer’s success. Providing legal advice negotiating efficiently in the interests of the company and the ability to adopt to a rapidly changing environment are crucial for our continuous growth.

🧑🏽‍💻 What you’ll do:

  • You offer legal counsel and assistance to both internal and external stakeholders.
  • You provide guidance on regulations, claims, transactions, and contractual matters.
  • You take charge of negotiations for commercial contracts and formulate legal paperwork pertaining to contracts, compliance, and marketing affairs.
  • You elevate current legal, data protection, and security structures.
  • You collaborate with the legal team to refine internal protocols.
  • You contribute to the resolution of commercial disputes.

⚒️ What you’ll need:

  • You’re a holder of a European Master’s Degree (awarded by a University or University of Applied Sciences) specializing in (business) law, with a strong preference for expertise in IT law and proficiency in matters of data protection.
  • You are a seasoned Legal Professional with a proven record of accomplishments encompassing commercial negotiation, adherence to compliance, proactive problem-solving, and a business-oriented mindset.
  • You possess a minimum of 4 years’ hands-on experience within a business-oriented setting, demonstrating your engagement either within a legal firm or an internal legal division of a corporation.
  • You exhibit adeptness in collaborative ventures within a dynamic and motivated team, while excelling in high-pressure environments.
  • You showcase a robust business sense, excellent communication skills, and an unwavering can-do attitude.
  • You thrive within an energetic and ambitious team environment, contributing to shaping the company and engaging in a diverse array of daily tasks.
  • You comfortably embrace rapid transformations and the challenges of swift expansion.
  • You are fluent in both English and German; proficiency in additional languages is advantageous.

🚀 What you’ll get:

  • Resources and trust: you own your work and shape things from day one.
  • Flat hierarchies: opportunity to work closely with the founders and the leadership team.
  • Fast-paced environment: quickly measure and learn about the impact of your work.
  • Flexibility: everyone has their own highly productive times - we look at the output and not at what time it was produced.
  • Hybrid setup: we enjoy in-person sessions, but we have also learned (thank you Covid) how to be efficient with remote working.
  • Competitive scale-up package with the possibility to partake in the upside.
  • Work anywhere: we offer up to 6 weeks remote work within the EU.
We are keen to get to know you. Apply with your CV and/or LinkedIn profile and a few words on why you would like to join Yokoy. We look forward to your application!
👉🏽 What’s going to happen next: we aim to get back to you regarding your application within 8 business days. Our interview process tends to take around 4 weeks to complete. If you need more flexibility or are on a tighter schedule, don’t be afraid to let us know.
