We are looking for a talented Legal & Compliance Officer who strives to design, develop and manage our processes so that we are compliant with legal regulations and relevant standards. This will ensure internal efficiency and fuel our growth by injecting trust into our customers and supporting the sales process by delivering the documentation needed to seal the deals.

About the team

We are a global team of 100+ awesome people working from over 40 countries around the globe. We hire globally, you work locally — in the heart of London, a beach outside of São Paulo, or a quiet village near Florence, the choice is yours. Every few months we travel to meet up somewhere in the world and spend some quality time together. We place a huge amount of trust in our people, and we measure the outcomes rather than the work itself. Our values fuel our results.

The role

The salary for this position is €52,000 annually.

You can work from anywhere in the world.

You will be reporting to the Head of Operations and while this role will be dynamic and hands-on at first, we expect you to be able to start improving our existing processes shortly after settling in.

Your main responsibilities will be:

  • Develop relevant internal processes and compliance documentation so that they will enable our awesome sales team to close deals faster;
  • Review, revise and complete relevant contracts, DPA’s, compliance questionnaires etc;
  • Manage and develop our customer facing documentation (Terms of Service, Privacy Policy etc);
  • Ensure we are compliant with GDPR, CCPA and other privacy related frameworks;
  • Provide support and advice to the whole Toggl team in all matters falling into your domain;
  • Train and educate staff so that they are informed of any legal changes and updates to compliance guidelines;
  • Manage our intellectual property assets
  • Coordinate cooperation with external service providers where necessary.

But it does not end here - just as Toggl is in constant change, so will be your role. One day you may be deep diving into GDPR or customer contracts, another you could be coming up with a strategic direction and tactical plan for Toggl's compliance domain.
