You will be the ‘go to’ person between card networks and clients for all legal related issues: creating data templates, reviewing relevant contracts, etc;
Standardize the process by creating checklists for reviewing and submitting clients’ data privacy policies, user flows, opt-in and opt-out solutions to the Card Networks for approval;

Candidates should have 3-5 years of progressive legal experience, preferably within the card networks/payment space. Heavy data privacy experience is required. This will be the first and sole in-house attorney for the company, so we are looking for hands-on, roll up your sleeves types of lawyers.
