in Lisbon, Portugal

We are looking for a multifaceted Counsel to cover our Southern Europe operations with a focus on our Delivery business in Portugal, to be based in Lisbon while working in close collaboration with colleagues from across the globe. You will be part of the Western and Southern Europe legal team, reporting into the lead counsel for Southern Europe.

What you'll do

  • Advise on a broad range of legal, commercial, and regulatory issues related to Delivery and Mobility in ways that are practical, commercially focussed, and future thinking;
  • Draft and negotiate key strategic contracts with restaurant and delivery partners;
  • Collaborate closely with outside counsel and attend hearings;
  • Provide product counseling for our fast-paced product team;
  • Advise our marketing team on award-winning campaigns and initiatives;
  • Work closely with our Employment, Policy, Tax, Communications, Safety and Operations teams to support regulatory engagement, strategic projects and to refine and shape business operations;
  • This is a hands-on role and you'll be expected to handle significant and complex legal matters with short turnaround times;
  • Be a partner to the BD, marketing, and Uber for Business teams on contracts.
  • Work hard but have fun doing it!

What you need

  • Passion for innovation and the law;
  • Circa 5+ years PQE in an international law firm or in the legal team of a global media or technology company;

  • Proven record of drafting and negotiating commercial agreements and advising on a range of legal, commercial, and regulatory issues;
  • Proven efficiency operating in complex organizational environments with strong stakeholder management skills and self-starter qualities;

  • Personal qualities: steadfast, teammate, creative, and + low ego!
