You’ll be asked to review design concepts, flag legal issues, and loop in the right colleagues to assess them.

Your ability to connect the dots across legal disciplines will be critical, as you’ll help the Spectacles team understand technologies that didn’t exist yesterday, and determine how they might be regulated tomorrow.

  • Help scale the Legal team and develop innovative processes to support the Engineering, Product, and Design teams

What we’re looking for:

  • J.D. with excellent academic credentials

  • Experience in scaling consumer hardware products, factory operations, and customer service

  • Membership in at least one state bar

  • 10+ years of experience practicing law (in-house experience required)

  • Experience across a range of legal disciplines related to hardware (IP, regulatory, marketing, e-commerce, retail, privacy) preferred

  • A quick study who is comfortable mastering new areas of law and tech

  • Excellent legal and business judgment, as well as strategic thinking and drafting skills

  • Ability to communicate effectively with stakeholders across the company on complex, multifaceted issues

  • A detail-oriented, business-friendly team player with the ability to think creatively and accommodate tight deadlines
