VideoAmp is on a mission to create the best employee and workplace experience where people can bring their whole self to work everyday. We believe that accomplishing something great requires a special group of people who work hard, drive results and have a blast while doing it - people who challenge the status quo and embody our values. People who say “I’ll find a way” instead of saying “it can’t be done.”

This role will support VideoAmp to accelerate the sustainable growth of our business model by being a key leader in the legal department.

We are looking for a true self-starter who is great at issue spotting, time management, communication, and execution. Counsel will collaborate with teams across the entire company and has experience being a commercially-minded attorney who has worked in start-up environments and can do more with less. The ideal candidate will be a team player who can work with minimal supervision, deliver a large volume of deliverables, and is solution-oriented.
