This is a Full-time position in Richmond Hill, ON posted February 25, 2021.

About Q4
Q4’s objectives are simple. Hire smart, diverse and capable people to build the best platforms possible and provide exceptional client experiences. 
We’ve been revolutionizing the Investor Relations space, connecting over 2,300 public companies including Nike, Amazon, Shopify & Apple with investors using our cloud-based full-stack IR solutions for the past 14 years.  
If you’re looking for a career opportunity with a fast-growing tech company and a ‘get it done’ attitude then we want to hear from you.
The gig.
We’re looking for an enthusiastic, passionate and dedicated technology lawyer, with real experience (ideally in-house) working on technically complicated product, privacy and data protection issues, commercial contracting and general corporate matters.
This role will require working and communicating with product and engineering teams, and providing pragmatic and actionable legal advice that isn’t just a CYA memo or a farmed-out DPIA checklist. The most important part of this role is product counseling and working with sophisticated product and engineering teams. We would prefer if you have in-house privacy experience, however, we will also consider lawyers from private practice so long as you have real, applied privacy experience that goes beyond drafting privacy policies or negotiating a DPA or two. 
NOTE: This is not a “compliance” role – we want a lawyer who thinks big picture, who can help our R&D team and product teams appreciate risks 5 to 10 years down the road, and who can provide pragmatic advice beyond the letter of the law. We also want someone who can help us grow and mature how we handle privacy. 

What You’ll Be Doing

  • Your​ ​primary​ ​responsibility​ ​will​ ​be​ ​to​ help advise product, engineering, and business teams on issues (privacy and others) relating to Q4’s products and services.
  • You will also spend your time assisting with privacy issues that may come up during commercial negotiations, helping with security incident response, and advising leaders at the company on the constantly evolving landscape of risks relating to privacy and data protection.
  • You will serve as the primary product counsel for specific Q4 products and services.
  • You will assist the SaaS product team with delivering specific product goals.
  • Help the Product team connect  goals with broader cross functionals teams, identifying risks and mitigation plans, regulatory issues (i.e., privacy and data), IP, third party vendor integration/assessments, marketing, comms, SLAs, etc.

What You Bring To The Table

  • You are highly adept and experienced with applicative privacy and cybersecurity legislation providing specific problem solving advice to the organization
  • This role will also need someone with exceptional commercial contract experience, particularly with subscription software agreements.
  • A capable and in-depth knowledge of technology industry overall with a preference for experience in the software industry and/or tech-enabled service industry
  • Experienced with corporate legal matters (financings, M&A, cap table management, etc.) – Nice to have
  • Intellectual Property and litigation experience (secondary capabilities)
