Associate General Counsel - Commercial and Product
Washington, D.C.

Mapbox is the leading real-time location platform for a new generation of location-aware businesses. Mapbox is the only platform that equips organizations with the full set of tools to power the navigation of people, packages, and vehicles everywhere. More than 3.5 million registered developers have chosen Mapbox because of the platform’s flexibility, security and privacy compliance. Organizations use Mapbox applications, data, SDKs and APIs to create customized and immersive experiences that delight their customers. Whether you’re watching the delivery of your grocery order on Instacart, tracking your personal best mile on Strava, monitoring your gas budget on Metromile, or checking today’s forecast on The Weather Channel, Mapbox is the location and maps within those apps.

What You'll Do
We’re looking for a lawyer with 7 + years of practicing attorney experience, ideally in a technology company, to join our small and collaborative legal team. The right candidate will be hard-working, keen to learn our products and business, and willing to dig into a wide variety of projects. On the commercial side, this encompasses complex sales and partner deals and data in-licenses. On the product side, this includes the full gamut of working with our product and engineering colleagues and our Lead Privacy Counsel to help bring products and features alive and to our customers!

This is a senior role where you will come up with practical and creative solutions to get deals done and advance our business. Drafting and communication skills are extremely important. We believe that it is the role of in-house counsel to own the deal (or almost all of it ). Working with the GC and other legal team members, you will develop the ability to both mitigate and accept risk. We almost never say to our colleagues “that’s a business issue for you to decide.”

This is a senior individual contributor role. We are not processing hundreds of small sales deals with tweaks to the governing law clause. Instead, our sales deals are complex and require a thoughtful approach by a senior lawyer. While we work closely together and thus teach and learn from each other every day, you will not have direct reports.

This is a combination of a senior commercial and product role. Some product lawyers don’t want to draft agreements and be in the fray with sales folks; some commercial lawyers aren’t interested in getting through the engineering speak to figure out what the hell the engineers/product folks are trying to do and help them get it done. We’re looking for someone who is enthusiastic about all of it!

This is a high-growth, interdisciplinary position -- you'll be learning every day and you’ll need to become conversant in our technology and business. We don’t believe that lawyers can give good legal advice in a vacuum, and so it’s critical that you are interested in and become immersed in our business and products. An undergraduate degree in engineering or computer science is a definite plus.

We think it’s important to continually be improving operational processes/updating forms because this is how we can scale a small legal organization, supporting a fast-growing tech company. You need to share and participate in these efforts to scale our department and improve our services. Prior work in a pre-IPO company will be extremely helpful.

This is a perfect position for an ambitious (in a good way!) lawyer who wants to be a General Counsel of a small technology company in 5 years. Not that we want you to leave Mapbox (!), but we are training cross-functional generalists who are able to understand and practically address business problems and risk and who can work in a variety of cross-functional areas – which is the perfect training for a General Counsel.

What We Believe Are Important Traits For This Role
7+ years of practicing attorney experience, with 2+ years at a top-tier law firm in any area and 5+ years in-house at a technology company in commercial/IP licensing /sales deals/product counseling (not patent prosecution).
Extensive experience working on complex sales deals/data in-licenses to get deals done.
Candidates with an engineering, computer science or other technical background will have an advantage.
Excellent communication skills. Your writing and verbal communications need to be clear and concise.
A practical and customer-centric orientation and negotiation style. You understand (or will quickly learn) the business deal so you know what matters and what doesn't and will focus on practical resolutions to speed deals through the pipeline.
A sense of humor. We take our work seriously, but we try not to take ourselves too seriously.
The legal team is working entirely remotely. While we think candidates who live near technology hubs often have the best backgrounds, we will consider remote candidates who live anywhere the US. We prefer candidates in the Pacific time zone.
JD degree from top-tier law school and active membership in at least one US state bar.
If your resume doesn’t clearly demonstrate the first bullet point above, you should include a cover note as to why you are interested in this role and why you think you would be a good fit despite not meeting those criteria. Resumes without a cover note in those circumstances will likely not be considered.

Washington, D.C.

$82,913 - $195,740 a year -  Full-time
Boutique plaintiff-side Washington, DC labor and employment law firm seeks to add an attorney with litigation experience and a demonstrated commitment to civil rights. The practice group represents employees and unions in a wide range of labor and employment issues, with a focus on class, collective, and multi-plaintiff litigation. In particular, the group routinely handles matters involving wage theft; sexual harassment; discrimination and retaliation; employee discipline; whistleblower retaliation; and union-related contract violations. Notable cases include:
· Tarovisky et al. v. United States, a collective action on behalf of more than 41,000 federal employees challenging the government’s failure to pay employees during the 2018-2019 government shutdown, in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act.
· Braswell et al. v. United States, a class action seeking hazard pay on behalf of federal employees who were exposed to the coronavirus while performing their official duties.
· White et al. v. Sessions, a class action on behalf of nearly 550 female employees of the Federal Bureau of Prisons in Coleman, Florida, alleging that the government failed to take steps to prevent inmates from egregiously sexually harassing them. The case settled for $20 million and a long list of negotiated changes designed to eradicate the sexual harassment, which the judge described as “impressive by any standard.”

Responsibilities will include all aspects of litigation, including investigating claims; filing cases; discovery; mediation and/or settlement negotiations; arbitration, hearing, and/or trial; and appeals. The attorney will work directly with clients and other attorneys in the firm often in a team environment. The position involves travel.
Candidates must be motivated and possess the ability to work well on a team, but also be energetic self-starters with initiative. The position requires outstanding research and writing skills, the ability to communicate effectively, a creative approach to litigation, and a commitment to social justice.

NO telephone calls. To apply please submit a cover letter, resume, references, transcript, and independent writing sample. For more information about the firm, visit
