  • You will support our marketing and communications teams on various aspects of Tinder-branded marketing and PR campaigns and other promotional activities, as well as our consumer insights group with their research and analytics initiatives, including that you will provide counsel on campaigns from concepting through execution, and negotiate growth and distribution deals.

  • You have a minimum of four years’ experience (preferred), with top law firm and in-house legal department experience (also preferred).
  • You are curious, action oriented, creative, and are apt to work collaboratively both within a broader legal team and across diverse business teams. 
  • You have strong fact-finding, drafting, negotiating, writing and research skills.
  • You have experience with marketing law, consumer protection issues, and drafting and negotiating marketing and tech transaction contracts; you have a general understanding of privacy, intellectual property, digital media, influencer endorsement regulations, and consumer internet industry; experience with  music licensing and/or B2B aggregator and distribution partner deals  would be an added bonus.
  • You have the leadership acumen and credibility to inspire confidence among business clients in a high growth business and an approachable, friendly and patient demeanor.
