Senior Legal Counsel, Media

Rakuten

London, United Kingdom

We are seeking a senior legal counsel to proactively support the growth of our fast growing and fast paced global media advertising business in a scalable way. If you would prefer to stay in your lane and do the same tasks over and over, this is not the position for you. We need someone who is agile and creative, independent and proactive, and above all, someone who can join our small but mighty legal team, pitch in and help us take this company to new heights.

You’ll be a strategic and commercially minded experienced lawyer, who understands the big picture and is also happy executing on day to day matters. Knowing programmatic advertising and the typical legal and commercial challenges of the industry, you will be across all the acronyms - understand what it means to work with a DSP, an SSP and a DMP, and appreciate the importance of a CMP, and the IAB.

Expectations of this Role

Provide strategic commercial and legal advice to Rakuten Advertising’s media advertising team including:

  • Negotiate media advertising contracts with DSPs, SSPs and media related vendors;
  • Liaise with key stakeholders across the business, including executives and our sister companies;
  • Align with the Media advertising business strategy, priorities and vision;
  • Review the existing contracting framework and work with the business to optimise that framework and associated processes with a view to scalability whilst managing legal risk;
  • Ensure the business is informed and compliant with any relevant existing or proposed legislation that may impact the media advertising operations of the business;
  • Provide relevant training to the business teams.

About You

  • Demonstrated experience in understanding and successfully negotiating deals in the media advertising space;
  • Excellent privacy knowledge and experience, at a minimum working knowledge and experience of GDPR, ideally also working knowledge of the CCPA;
  • Qualified to practise in the UK with at least 8 years of legal experience, including at least 2 years in an in-house legal department;
  • In-house experience in a technology or adtech company, agency or media platform (or private practise experience working on these matters);
  • Experience in face to face contract negotiations;
  • Strategic and commercial thinker;
  • Proven ability to take ownership of matters and have a solution focussed approach;
  • Ability to effectively prioritize and manage quick turnaround times;
  • Outstanding interpersonal, verbal and written skills. Clear, succinct, confident and commercial in communications and advice to the business;
  • Ability to guide and influence key stakeholders.
