In the last decade, Eventbrite has grown from a small US company to a complex NYSE-listed global business, empowering event creators to host memorable experiences for consumers in over 170 countries. Accompanying this exciting growth is the number of complex privacy regulations that our business teams need to understand and react to quickly to ensure we comply and protect customer trust in our marketplace.
The Eventbrite Legal team collaborates with all areas of the business to develop proactive strategies and solutions that drive business growth while satisfying legal requirements and accounting for appropriate legal risk.
We’re a close knit Legal team. We work hard but try not to take ourselves too seriously. We are agile, highly adaptable and always go the extra mile to grow and protect the business. Above all else, we are creative problem solvers and set high expectations for ourselves as teammates and advisors to the business.
As Privacy and Cybersecurity Counsel, you’ll build out a best-in-class data protection program and serve as the lead attorney for our cybersecurity incident response procedures.
You’ll counsel our product, engineering and cybersecurity teams on applicable global privacy regulations and you’ll get to see your impact immediately as we bring our products to market. You’ll also own our cybersecurity incident response program. This includes enhancing our incident response plans, leading all aspects of an investigation in the event of an incident, partnering with security on remediation measures and counseling cross-functional partners on global data breach notification requirements and communication plan strategies.
The role is high-visibility, high impact and requires you to have a hands-on approach to lawyering. If you’re looking to get exposure, breadth and ownership in your legal practice, join us!
