Braze is certified as a Great Place to Work in the UK and the U.S. and is recognized as one of the UK's Best Workplaces for Women.

OVERVIEW 

Braze is seeking an experienced privacy lawyer to advise on a wide array of privacy matters. While we expect the successful candidate will have a broad knowledge of global privacy laws, especially GDPR, this role will focus on U.S. privacy laws, including the CCPA, CPRA, HIPAA, VCDPA, COPPA and others. This individual will advise across all areas of privacy, including SaaS agreements, vendor agreements,  handling of employee PII, and general B2B marketing strategies.  

We're looking for someone who thrives in a fast-paced environment, enjoys a challenge, is self-motivated, goes the extra mile, can effectively juggle multiple projects, and is willing to learn, pitch in and play a significant role. Strong relationships with internal stakeholders are a must, and you'll need to effectively collaborate with colleagues around the company to solve intricate problems. You’ll work with outside counsel, help educate our internal clients, and play a role in building out our legal team.

This is a great opportunity for a young lawyer to move into tech at a leading technology company that is growing quickly, scaling wisely and offering tremendous opportunity for someone who is willing to jump on board and do what it takes. And finally, we are seeking someone who will care deeply about the employee experience and is able to enjoy and contribute to fostering a positive work culture. 

This role will report to the Senior Corporate Counsel - Privacy and DPO who is based in London, U.K. This role can be based in any of our U.S. office locations, namely, San Francisco, New York, Chicago or Austin.

  • Advise and collaborate across the company with stakeholders across different areas of our business, including, with cross-functional teams, the People, Marketing, Product and Data & Analytics teams. 
  • Work with the DPO to continue to develop and grow a best-in-class Privacy Program, including ensuring compliance with key laws, monitoring legal and regulatory changes and meeting commercial objectives.  Contribute to written submissions on key metrics of the Privacy Program.
  • Work on regular tasks that form part of the Privacy Program, including data mapping, conducting privacy impact assessments, offering specialized trainings, assisting in preparing for and handling data incident responses and conducting periodic reviews of company policies and processes. 
  • Draft reports and summaries for senior management on significant changes in the legal and regulatory landscape, respond to specific requests for advice.

An Insider's view of Braze

What are some social events your company does?

Every month, a different department hosts a social event - this provides a great opportunity to get to know and collaborate with people across teams. In addition to broader team social events, we also host a quarterly team outing where we do team building activities and socialize outside the office. It’s really fun!

Zana

Business Development Manager, East

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I work closely with teams from across marketing, as well as from a variety of different departments—from customer success to product—to inform the content we create. Thankfully, the people at Braze aren’t just really smart; they’re also thoughtful and kind. That makes collaboration easier and something I look forward to every day.

Todd

Managing Editor, Content Marketing

At Braze, we refer to work-life balance as work-life harmony -- and we strongly value it. Our flexible paid-time-off policy gives team members the ability to take time off in the way that suits them best.
